Mobs, Stampedes, Fights, Brawls, A Stabbing And Shooting: A Video Compilation Of Black Thursday 2013

Tyler Durden's picture




 

That greatest of all American traditions - the Black Friday Thursday stampede, this year accompanied with a stabbing and a shooting, is back. A quick review of all readers may have missed by not lining up in droves outside of stores that were selling products at just above cost instead of the usual massive pre-Thanksgiving markup, via the Mail:

  • The rush for Black Friday bargains has resulted in outbreaks of violence as shoppers clash over reduced price goods
  • Police in Virginia have reporting a stabbing incident after two men got into a fight in the car park over a space
  • Shoppers cutting in line sparked a Black Friday Brawl at another Walmart
  • Some retailers opened their doors as early as 6am on Thanksgiving Day

Some details before we get into the documentary evidence:

A man has been stabbed in Virginia, a shoplifter has been shot by cops in Chicago and brawls have broken out across the nation as shoppers clash in a scramble for the best Black Friday bargains.

 

Chaotic scenes at several Walmart stores have already been filmed and posted to YouTube, revealing the madness that has become a tradition the day after Thanksgiving.

 

In one of the most violent incidents, a police officer responded to the scene of a shoplifting at a Kohl's store in Romeoville, Illinois just after 10pm on Thursday to see the alleged thief dragging another officer along with his car. The responding officer shot the driver to stop him.

 

Police Chief Mark Turvey said at a news conference that the injured officer had headed into the store when a man ran out, and the officer chased him to his car. 'The officer was struggling with the subject as he got into the car and then the car started to move as the officer was partially inside the car. The officer was dragged quite some distance. He couldn’t get out,' Turvey said.

 

The driver and the officer were both taken for hospital treatment of non-life-threatening shoulder injuries, and three people were arrested, Turvey said.

 

Police in Virginia also reported a stabbing after two men got into a fight in the car park over a space around 6.30pm on Thursday at a Walmart store in Tazewell County. Sheriff Brian Hieatt told WVVA that the incident occurred in the parking lot. Two men, 61-year-old Ronnie Sharp of Russell County and 35-year-old Christopher Jackson of Jewell Ridge in Tazewell County, were arguing over a parking space.

 

This escalated into a threat with a firearm, and then Hieatt says Sharp used a knife to cut Jackson in the arm, slicing down to the bone. Sharp is charged with malicious wounding and brandishing a firearm. Police seized a rifle from him. He is Southwest Regional Jail in Tazewell and is out on $5000 bond.

... at which point he proceeded to return to his favorite zoo store and buy "stuff" at 90% off.

So what did it all look like? The answer: like this...

What kind of country do I live in? People willing to fight over discounted shit they don't need?

Fri, 11/29/2013 - 12:14 | 4199621 FreeNewEnergy

I'm sure the first question is rhetorical, but I'll answer anyway. You live in a country where many millions of people are controlled by a self-serving corporate media that instructs them to crave that which they do not need.

Fortunately, there are also people in this country who are opting out of that particular insane asylum in droves. I had the pleasure of dining with extended family yesterday. After dinner, my three nieces (17, 18 and 19)were writing up long Christmas shopping lists supplied by - alas - my sister, their mother, and perusing the newspaper Black Friday ads.

Meanwhile, I was engaged in conversation with an unrelated 17-year-old male, discussing self-sustainability, the power of creativity, and rejection of government control.

So, there's hope, but I think it will come primarily from the middle to lower-middle class. My sister lives in the most affluent suburb, while my young friend lives with his parents in a modest household. His father is an avid hunter, canoe instructor and gardener. He was  a bit annoyed that he hadn't been able to get out deer hunting yet, but was eager to go afield.

Those who have had much handed to them in a cushy lifestyle will be screwed in the future, as will those on the government dole. We who have sustainable, human life skills will likely be called upon to save them from starvation.

That's what kind of country you live in.

A few months ago, around harvest time, I had an epiphany in a local supermarket, a kind of dystopian revelation. As I was frozen for a moment in time, watching the mindless hordes shopping for packaged and prepared foods, I realized that should the supply lines break down, many of these very people would starve.

Grow squashes, my friends.

Formerly upstanding and solid major metro suburban area..  the missus did a church meal event for the “needy”.. 500 meals to mostly Hispanics imported courtesy of the financiers and Clinton’s 1992 section 8 gift to the nation. It was a freaking sit-down meal in which the volunteers waited on tables.  She was amazed at the general attitude of entitlement. Further, that a fair number complained that there were no sweet potatoes in the meals provided another source of incredulity. Is there some peculiar affection that Hispanics have for sweet potatoes?

That was her last time for that nonsense.

Also, driving some 15 miles back from relatives Thanksgiving dinner at 9:30 pm (suburban trip), it was like rush hour on a Friday evening. I saw a mall lot that I have never seen more than a third full absolutely stuffed with cars.

Thank you USSA.gov

Oh, as we are not disposed to being overly used and abused.. we are soon to be voting on this area and state with our feet.

The US is full of low-education dipshits whom the media plays up the signifigance of.  But what you don't see in any of those videos are the millions of people who didn't partake in the mob behavior, which is the majority of the people in the US!  So spare us, okay?

I taught the lesson on Thanksgiving to my Oral English classes here in China.  I showed a video on the Pilgrims.  One student asked if the ethnic cleansing began with the Pilgrims. I said no but all the Indians regret Squanto's friendliness.

Good call. Pilgrims were radical christian jihadists from the *second* licensed English colony who didn't join the ethnic cleansing party until the 1620's.

The first terroistic English colony in Jamestown had them beat by at least a decade, but occasionally spared a Powhatan indian if they could be used as a hostage for negotiating. The Powhatan Nation Chief's daughter was captured in 1610 and used for that purpose.

The colonists never did return the hostage, Pocohontas. She was more useful (after three years of brainwashing) as a PR tool, forced to married some white English geeze and dragged off to England to die. I think Disney addressed this moral outrage in the cartoon, didn't they?

The Spanish terrorist Christopher Columbus had them both beat by decades, having geared up his ethnic cleansing tour of the Americas back in 1592.

None of that would have been permitted without Pope Nicholas' fatwa of 1542 directing the faithful to "capture, vanquish, and subdue the saracens, pagans, and other enemies of Christ," to "put them into perpetual slavery," and "to take all their possessions and property." The fatwa was actually issued to Portugal, but Columbus figured 'close enough' since the Pope had given the America half of the world to Spain.

the brits who went to jamestown to find gold weren't there two weeks when they were attacked by the local tribe.   They were forced to spend their time building a stockade and spent all their time trapped and unable to leave without great danger from the locals.  Consequently, they started dying from starvation and disease.

The brits didn't start that one.  

Twenty or so years earlier, a colony was started and completely dissapeared.  Sure, it could have been alien abduction, but in all likelihood it was local tribes that had murdered them.   Murdered women and children.  

The locals weren't so nice.   The brits learned, and acted accordingly.

The Brits didn't learn a thing. They did have superior weapons, so genocide provided a final solution to the indians that refused to hand over their ancestoral lands.

When someone shows up on your land one day and tells you it has been claimed by a someone else in the name of a God or a King you never heard of, then you might be upset but tolerate the nut-jobs out of politeness.

If they're arrogant and rude to you and repeatedly claim more and more of *your* land as legally *theirs* because of their mystery potentates and laws from afar, then you might start getting pissed off and suggest they stop.

If they start burning down the forests on your land because they feel they are entitled to build a farm on their land (according to their weird laws), then shots are going to fly.

As soon as they start killing *your* kids and grandparents to enforce *their* goofball ownership claims, then the invaders should consider themselves targets of opportunity subject to elimination. The Brits did the same thing several times in history defending their homeland, didn't they?

Invaders should not bring wives and children with them when they seize foreign lands until they have enslaved, subdued or killed every last one of the locals. That's just common sense. 

The early British colonists were as dumb as the Israeli government has been: you don't get to self-declare your invasion and land-seizure over (according to your rules) so now everyone must obey. If the locals never recognized the ligitimacy of your rules, then don't expect them to be nice when you start building a house on their front lawn.

This is really sad.  Your wife was trying to do a good deed and was abused by this.  Sickening.  Meanwhile, the illegals had total self entitlement.  You serve us today. I bet all of them have EBT cards too.

The churches also enable thise to keep the pews full along with the donations. 

As far as Hispanics and sweet potatoes.  ZH had a story about the most overweight people in the world are Mexicans.  This has happened due to diet change and gringo style packaged foods and sweets. 

I have seen a lot of little Mexican kids that are very overweight and short.   Mexicans have some Indian genetics which causes problems with alcohol and breaking down the enzymes or something.  It causes a lot of alcoholism is Indians and also Peruvians who are very Indian.  I am not sure if they have issues with sugar or corn syrup as well.

Sadly voting with you feet may only bring temporary relief.  They are trying to destroy all the states.

Back in 2006 my wife and I decided to give away a few bikes at Christmas - the local police & fire department were organizing a gift drive.

First year we did 4 bikes - the next year 8 then 10 or 12 -

One of the officers that had been around a few years knew my wife - he called us and ask if we wanted to help with the distribution.

My wife said sure -

First year was good - families really appreciated the gifts - some parents actually cried - my wife felt really good about helping some kids have a better Christmas.

Second and third year were OK - some good some bad  

Fourth year something had changed - the parents would say stuff like "is this all you got"?

The mood had changed from appreciating the gift to entitlement. Where is my free stuff.

Wife said she was not going to deliver next year - but we still figured we would donate.

Between Christmas and New Year I decided to hit a few pawn shops - looking for a S&W 629 - one with out the internal lock.

I walk into the first pawn shop and lined up was a whole row of new bikes - same thing with the second and third pawn shop - a few of them still had bows on them - and some could have  been the exact bikes I had purchased  a few weeks earlier. It really pissed me off.

FUCKING ASSHOLE parents had taken their kid's gifts and pawned them.

Part of me thinks - maybe the parents had little choice - want your kid to have a new bike or you want to eat - but the pawn shop + the way my wife was treated sealed the deal -We have not donated any bikes since.

My friend has a story like that.  She donated her deceased sister's motorized wheel chair to a needy poor person, thru their church.  The person was angry that it was not enough.  So I learned my lesson not to bother helping any of these entitlement assholes unless I know them personally.

I also see people begging at freeway off ramps.  They are always young and healthy looking.  Begging 2 blocks from the business district where they could easily get jobs.  Beggars never get a penny from me because I know they have their entitlements and any money given becomes alcohol/drugs.

The problem with bikes is that China is making too many of them.  I'm surprised they have any pawn value whatsoever.  I have a 16" girls' bike in my garage that I can't give away--my neighbors with daughters that size already have 2-3 bikes lined up for them, given to them by other dads desperately trying to clean out a garage, too.

Sat, 11/30/2013 - 16:00 | 4202243 all-priced-in
all-priced-in's picture

Seems like the average cost was around $100 each - the 16" size are really cheap - $49 - but the 26" 15 speed bikes were $150 +/-.

I know these are not the best quality bikes - but 2x better than what I had as a kid.

I will guess a pawn shop will pay $40 maybe $50 for a $150 bike.

Must be good for a few 12 packs of what ever is on sale.

Good for you Free! My husband and I had had a nice quiet dinner together. After eating our delicious turkey we raised ourselves we curled up by the fire. We had to laugh at the whole scenario considering he was 41lbs and could barely get him in the oven. After stripping the carcass we still had 30lbs of meat to freeze. Because we bartered, the entire cost was $1.75/ lb. and we knew what we were eating. When you raise your own food there is a connectedness to the world, an understanding and appreciativeness of what you have and what it takes to provide your sustenance. Isn't this what Thanksgiving really is? Now it has devolved into land whales wresting over cheap crap with no thought whatsoever; just as lemmings launch themselves over cliffs. I'm having trouble finding much pity any more. However, it is nice to find,occasionally, a pocket of light like the boy you conversed with. It can renew some hope.

TV and Hollywood.  I rail against it daily.  It is used to brainwash the masses.  People who watch it or pay for cable or sat support the regime with their money.   Foolishly - many people including conservatives and libertarians think TV is like Mom and apple pie or that it is okay because they watch Fox News and Duck Dynasty.

Your money paid each month to cable or satellite TV goings to every channel.  They are all the same anyway including almost every ad with the dumb or dishonest white guy.  F them.  I stopped watching their crap 10 years ago.

TV viewership keeps dropping like a rock. Maybe some people are waking up.

These vids display a sad thing. People really do act like this. Every day. And they act this way because that is how their parents act and that is how their friends and neighbours act. Media & schools only encourage their materialism and ignorance. They are an underclass that our elites want to control with jails or dependence on social services. And we loathe these people because they have traded their freedom for a subsistence but urban lifestyle. When we, ourselves, are also dependent on them. Just differently. We depend on them to create a "good economy" which creates private sector jobs  for us or generates taxes to fund public sector jobs.

And while we could all try our hand at farming, not many of us would survive it!

Happened to be at the local Wal*Mart at precisely midnight, buying lemon juice and almonds, of all things.  The store went silent as all the computers shut down to upload the days sales to the WalMart mothership.  What struck me is there were at least 5 local cops in uniform standing around the store, and at least another 8 derelicts wearing black T Shirts with "Security" printed on them, like low-rent bouncers.

Pathetic, and disturbing at all the same time.

The midnight silence in Wal Mart can also be when EBT's cards are being charged up by JPM. 

I think EBT gets distributed twice a month because they would burn through it on day one.

There was a story in WSJ online (which I stopped reading a long time ago). I think it was a linked story off drudge or maybe ZH.  Anyway - the locust mill around in the store with carts filled waiting til 12:01 am.  The cash registers go silent.  At 12:01 am - the EBT cards are charged up or credited by JPM and the registers go crazy. 

You have families in there on schoolnights at Midnight because they get their free money for snacks and other corn syrup dipped crap.

Yes...and whatever you do, never criticize Dear Leader:

"He went on FOX News where his story was picked up by C. Steven Tucker, a health insurance broker who helped him keep his insurance.

Now suddenly Bill Elliot is being audited for 2009 with an interview only scheduled in April 2014. Assuming he lives that long. That might be a coincidence, but Tucker is being audited back to 2003.

That’s a rather strange coincidence.

Would the IRS actually go after a cancer patient, who had voted for Obama initially, just for appearing on FOX and now being sharply critical of Obama and suggesting that he resign for his health plan lie?"

It is most certainly not. If Christ's mission was to sow discord and global rebellion, His death on the Cross would have been in vain and history would have rendered Him a hypocrite. His sword was directed at men's souls, to judge sin and offer forgiveness for it one time through His own sacrifice.

Really? Jesus had the power to conquer the world very easily as the story goes yet he never led an army as Mohommet did. Probably because the command to love one another is not compatible with military occupation. On the other hand, taking up the sword in spiritual matters is very much disturbing to the sick. Try speaking the truth about how the military is a tool of evil to religious neocons. The resulting disturbance is taking up the sword as Jesus would want it.

Really, dude.  Talking about matters of Christianity after taking an online comparative religion course at Phoenix University does not qualify you to speak on such matters.  Why don't you just READ the Bible instead.  It's easy enough to comprehend.

The sword and war metaphor is COMPLETELY APT to both sick and well-bodied.  It also speaks, oddly enough to those that don't have a grasp of quantum physics, to the fact that our fleshly existence is NOT the only one.  In fact, it is intimately tied to AND apart from it at the same time.  So....while we can AND often do delude ourselves about our state of being in the material world ( I'm well off.....I have no needs)  we may be and more often than not are ENSLAVED in our spiritual existence.

So....if you are beset by sickness and perhaps impending death ( as I was 15 years ago battling cancer ) and facing many "dark nights of the soul"....the "Sword" was comforting because God used it in a spiritual sense and through the interactions with friends and family to not only cut through the clutter of fear and doubt in my mind......but to cut through the bullshit I was stewing in as well.....about my life....about my relationships......just bullshit in general that we heap unpon ourselves.

So....tarsubil......I think you could use the "sword" in your own life.  You need to whittle away a little bullshit in your own life.

Same for you Uncle Remus.  Not trying to be a smart ass.  But I'm the not the kind of Christian whose gonna sugar coat things for you.....or pat you on the head and go "there, there" when you speak from a point of ignorance.  We were all (including me) ignorant.  No wrong in that.  It's only a fault if you stay there......particularly by choice.

Bible Scholar: Jesus Never Lived — Myth Created By Romans To Control Masses

"Was Christ real? American biblical scholars are claiming that Jesus Christ never actually lived — that he was a myth created by ancient Roman aristocrats as a tool to oppress and control believers. “When the Romans had exhausted conventional means of quashing rebellion, they switched to psychological warfare,” says scholar and author Joseph Atwill. “They surmised that the way to stop the spread of zealous Jewish missionary activity was to create a competing belief system. That’s when the ‘peaceful’ Messiah story was invented. Instead of inspiring warfare, this Messiah urged turn-the-other-cheek pacifism and encouraged Jews to ‘give unto Caesar’ and pay their taxes to Rome.”

John 1

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Eternal Word

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend[a] it.

John’s Witness: The True Light

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.[b]

10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own,[c] and His own[d] did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

The Word Becomes Flesh

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”

16 And[e] of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son,[f] who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

The Discipline of God

For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

“My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”[a]

If[b] you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

So Don't project your ideas onto others - it's totally disrespectful. There are those of us out there that realise we can't remember before we were born so why fear death? I won't know I'm dead I'll just be dead. Big deal, happens to all of us and I don't need a fairytale to confort me.

I assume the regime is reluctant to let any mass gathering not serve as propaganda.  Hence football militarization.

I thought football was being used to propagandize for Obamacare.

Forward (over the cliff)!

EVERYTHING ON TV IS PROPAGANDA from the football to dancing with the fags.

Zadig.....name me ONE religion or NON-RELIGIOUS regime and culture that has not done that throughout the course of human existance.

Don't be a "knee"-jerk.  That kind of reaction only make you look stupid and ignorant.

The thing to to keep in mind is very few actually follow Jesus.  Many honor him with their lips but their hearts are far from Him.

The Narrow Way

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because[a] narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Yep.....the scariest verse in the Bible, particularly for so called believers........

Matthew Ch.7 ver. 21-23

I let you guys look it up in a translation of your choice.

Well stated Jumbotron, further taking note of the three things that those rejected did, I hardly ever see even one of those things done in American churches today.  Our nation is merely following the pattern long since established by humans before us.  

I wish I wasnt part of it but Joshua and Caleb had to endure long enough for the old generation to die off and a new arise.  Uggg, not looking forward to where this is headed.  Make your choices and do your best.  

It is serious business with serious consequences, worth contemplating what it says quietly before making decisions.

New standard version:

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one whodoes the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

NIV version

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

 

Thanks for posting the verses, here is the link for the above:

Most interesting is the last word of the second translation; evildoers.

Flashback to Bush the lesser.

Why the hell are you bringing Bush into this?

Obama is waging a war of occupation on the American Economy by looking at the insurance industry and conservatives as "evildoers".

And he is doing it from the standpoint of his Rev. Wright inspired and influenced brand of Liberation Theology which is simply Marxism wrapped in the cloak of Christianity.

So.....if I have a PhD in Mathmatics, Quantum Mechanics and Chaos Theory......and yet I spend every waking minute trying to sell to acedemia and the general public the theory that 1+1=3....am I still a Mathematician, even though I have LOTS of plaques on my wall saying so?

Hence, the passage from Matthew Ch. 7 ver. 16

I don't think Bush nor Obama would neccisarily qualify as Christians by the standard as described in that verse.

If odumbass looks at the insurance industry as 'evildoers', why did he allow their lobbyists to write his signature piece of legislation?
