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

    PORTER RANCH, Calif. (KTLA) -- At least 20 people sustained minor injuries Thursday night when a female customer pepper sprayed other shoppers at a Black Friday sale at a Wal-Mart in Porter Ranch.

    Police said it was unclear exactly what sparked the confrontation, but it appeared to be a case of "competitive shopping."The woman, who is still being sought, used the pepper spray more than once inside the store "to gain preferred access to a variety of locations in the store," Los Angeles Fire Capt. James Carson told the Los Angeles Times.

    Employees evacuated part of the store after the incident. Several people were treated outside for minor injuries, including skin and eye irritation, according to fire officials.

    Wal-Mart's Black Friday sales started at 10 p.m. Thursday for toys, home and apparel. Electronics deals started at midnight.
    BTW, after the scuffle, shopping went on as usual.

    People are nutz.

    Apparently they haven't caught her, but if she used her charge card for the XBox she bought, she's toast.

    Let's hear some outrage here -- what's she guilty of? Attempted murder? Assault with a deadly weapon? Let's publish her name and address on the internet and vow vengeance!!

    People should use pepper spray for good, like...

    ...when people talk during movies.
    ...when people ask 'What's in that?' at the Starbucks counter.

    This selfish woman is going to find lumps of coal in her Christmas stocking...but with any luck, she'll be wondering about the assault charges she'll face in court.

    Christ - WHY do people want to be in a crowd like that? I don't get it.
