    Oh, God. Here comes another Kaching! Moment.

    What negligent act of WalMart's caused these people to get pepper sprayed? Or doesn't it make any difference...No such thing as random acts?

    Doesn't matter if Walmart did anything. People sue whoever has money.

    Has Fox news claimed it was a food fight yet?

    What on earth would possess someone to go shopping on Black Friday. THE SALES ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE.

    This kind of stuff is completely unacceptable. So far we are one day into the official christmas rush and we have a grandfather tackled because he was mistaken for a shoplifter because his grandson was being crushed by fellow shoppers and he was trying to save him, we have this idiot committing at least aggravated battery with a can of pepper spray over a ****ing game, and an innocent shopper shot for refusing to give up the gifts he bought. Seriously people need to get a clue and need a major refresher course on class.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Actually those are major examples of a need for what I'm going to call 'de-urbanization'.

    You stuff more and more people into a limited space (city, freeway, or Wal-Mart) and the frustration-induced violence will bloom. Sometimes it will take hold and lead to riot. The mere concept of mega-stores and mega-cities should be discouraged.

    This wasn't about frustration; it was about greed and barbarism.

    Can "class" be taught?

    At least parenting classes can be taught, which is why I hope that the ubiquitous cameras will end up identifying the pepper-spraying woman, who had her kids with her.

    Re: "Competitive Shopping" Cited in Wal-Mart Pepper Spray Attack

    So i was at Wal-mart last night among other places(went with my aunt's, uncle, and mom) and it just seems like Walmart wants people to fight, and get hurt. Atleast where I was at, they had things stacked up on pallets, and people would stand around them and wait for them to actually go on sale, and then people would just pile on them, and go at it. It was crazy, and the other stores just weren't like that. Not surprising stuff like this happens.
