yes, at midnight, they opened up an area near electronics where they had the printers, phones, etc for midnight purchase. huge crowd there. sure enough, all heck broke loose and an older woman got trampled. huge fight erupted, fists flying, people pushing/shoving, panicked people trying to get away. fight continued down the aisle towards the entrance. state police and sheriff show up. woman taken away by ambulance. what a joke the set-up in that small confined area was for the 100 plus who waited. they had shyt on pallets and people were walking over them, tripping on them, etc.

I was there and tried to run for my life. I could not get out I had to put on a bicycle helmet I had bought for my son to avoid being clubbed on the head. Clock radios were flying and computer bags almost took off my ear. Stuck my hand in the pile to try to grab something and felt someone bite it. One guy even stole my boot, tried to get both but I crawled away before he could get the other. They were brand new $70.00 Clumbia winter boots I bought at Philipsons. Finally a clerk helped me off the floor and I got away. It was like going into a pack of dogs with a porkchop. Someone said the store video will be on True TV.

i saw a kid testing a bicycle on sale and his father said make sure thats what you want because its the last one. another guy and his son walk up and tell them they are giving away free muppet movie character dolls four isles down in toys one per person. the kid dropped the bike and ran with his dad. then the other kid picks up the bike and he and his father run for the checkout. about five minutes later the first two return and start looking for the bike realizing they were tricked. so sad but so funny.

I blame Walmart too for not having a better plan in place for this not to happen. It wasn't long ago that someone died from a similar event. As far as the people involved go, what are they, freaking animals shoving, pushing, jumping on each other, the clip said 200 people were on some woman, you have got to be kidding me!!! This is a classic example of people not giving a shit for anyone but themselves. Imagine loosing your life over a 30 dollar cell phone or causing someones death to save 20 bucks. I don't know about you guys but this is very disturbing and animal like behavior. A sad world we live in for sure. Hug your dog!!!!!!
news reported it wrong

can not blame it totally on the people though. it was badly set up. Wally mart had enough time to figure out how to control the possible rush of people and chose to do nothing other than cut the rope, and let the mayhem begin. small area, 100 + ppl, pallets to trip over.(the woman who got trampled got her foot stuck in the bottom slot of the pallet- she didn't have a chance after that). so anyways, the paper and the news should get the facts straight from people who were right there. they have the events reported wrong. okay, time to shop via computer- and to think that "dirt" poster said i didn't work..lol..oh, i got to wash my new car today too -it's so nice out!

There isn't a Wal-Mart store anywhere in the U.S. on Black Friday that won't have the heavy smell of farts and women pushing carts and squirting cheap perfume to disguise their own farts.

Not to mention the pickpockets and shoplifters.

I couldn't get through 3 pages of pic's from Walmart without wanting to vomit. Please, I'm begging you, don't put Walmart down, let's keep these freaks in one place so the rest of us don't have to see them.

...of whats to come.

When this country takes a crap into financial and social meltdown, most people will turn into animals and thousands will die within the first week.

These walmartians are acting like this just to get an item thats on sale. Imagine what people will act like when they are fighting for food to fill an empty belly or gas to put in an empty tank.

Prepare now.

Violence erupted at Black Friday sales across the U.S. with one bargain-hunter left critically injured after being shot during a robbery and 15 other people injured when an angry shopper used pepper spray.

OMG Run losers save 50 dollars on watermelon.

Tis' the season...all for a $30.00 phone...they'd spend the savings on pot and beer anyway so what's the difference?

Great Job Ootica-Rome, you made Natl' News as being one of a half dozen places in the US where violence broke out at a Walmart on Black Friday. Jesus must be very happy you are celebrating and respecting his "B-Day" in that way.

Well at least you didnt have a robbery like in Rochester. A lady who pepper sprayed over 20 people so she could get her electronics like in California. Or the guy who shot cusotmers who wouldnb't hand over their purchases somewhere else I forgot.
Glad I have no plans on shopping until after the weekend.

It's called "Black" Friday, cuz the Cullerds use it to pickpocket and rob others and use up the credit cards before they are called in as stolen to buy Xmas gifts.
