People lineup for hours in the hopes of saving a few hundred dollars, and when those doors finally open, all hell breaks loose.
These uncivilised humans fight each other for products, while other literally tear it out of each others hands, so it’s no wonder than every year a lot of people get injured in the chaos of embarrassing consumerism.
Some even die…
Last year there were 3 deaths in America on Black Friday.
- In San Antonio, a man tried to help a woman being beaten in a Walmart parking lot. He was shot.
- Someone got shot over a Walmart parking spot fight in Reno
- And there was a deadly shooting at a New Jersey mall.
So many bad things happen that there’s is actually a website that tracks every death and accident caused by Black Friday madness.
Now, this website tells you how many people died so far, and the last time I checked it, the count was at 10 death and 105 injuries.
Luckily those didn’t all happen this years, otherwise I’m pretty sure Black Friday would no longer exist (then again the American society is Pro-gun).
Here are the stats from the last 10 Black Friday sales, as well as a few honourable mentions.
Yup, absurd barbaric violence comes at 75% off in “the first world.” As idiotic as it sounds.
