Black Friday 2012: The Fights

Submitted by on November 23, 2012 – 4:13 pmNo Comment

Black Friday is here- in fact, with retailers opening up on Thanksgiving eve it’s been here for a few hours now. Nurse your Thanksgiving hangover with what a friend once called “the Sport of Kings.” No, not horse racing: watching people fight at midnight sales. And this year, it seems like tech items such as smart phones and video games are inspiring much of the frenzy; and they all take place at Walmart.

Note: it’s difficult to very details about videos from Black Friday. The first doesn’t provide a geographic location, but claims to show hordes fighting over cheap smartphones.

Another compilation shows the first Walmart video, as well as other brawls over tech items:

And a newly posted video claims to shoe a mob clawing at a bin full of Xbox games.

Were you at sales on Black Friday? How was it?
