Black Friday shopper pepper sprays rivals in Walmart stampede

25 November 2011

black_friday_ads_56272307 As we’re almost sick of saying now, today is ‘Black Friday’, especially in the USA where they do this kind of thing every year, with scores of stores opening all early and deep-discounting shit left right and centre. Amazing scenes.

In fact, yes, there ARE amazing scenes all over the place, as bargain-thirsty shoppers get all punchy with each other as they tussle their way to the amazingest deals, with all thoughts of Thanksgiving harmony left very much in the car park.

But one deranged female savings freak has today gone beyond all rhyme or reason in Walmart in Los Angeles, attacking fellow shoppers with pepper spray as the doors opened, in what was described by authorities as ‘competitive shopping’. That makes it all sound like a bit of harmless fun, and with only 20 injuries out of what must have been hundreds of shoppers, we’re pretty sure that it’ll soon be forgiven and forgotten.

In fact, Matthew Lopez, one of the ‘injured’ shoppers said: “I heard screaming and I heard yelling. Moments later, my throat stung. I was coughing really bad and watering up.” Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha – what LARKS!

How far would YOU go in order to get your hands on a bargain? Sock filled with pound coins? Tranquiliser dart? Taser gun? TELL US.

    Lucky Bastards. They got *FREE* pepper spray, and they have the gall to complain? You just can't please some people.

    Well the other shoppers were in the way, so according to the police in the US it was justified.
