Woman Pepper Sprays Shoppers To Get Xbox


It never fails.  Every Black Friday we get yet another heaping helping of pure unadulterated ignorant mentally deficient bottom feeding fat-saturated sheeple mania.  Every year it gets worse.  And, every holiday season I am faced with the painful question of whether or not these people are actually worth saving.  My answer so far has always been a begrudging "yes".  Many of them have been conditioned by a society on the brink of collapse, not just of economy, but also of conscience.  That doesn't mean, however, that I excuse this kind of behavior.  Frankly, if some mongoloid Wal-Mart shopper tried to pepper spray me in the face for a video game, I would beat them into cranberry sauce and drink some delicious eggnog to celebrate.  Is this a well balanced response?  Probably not.  But then again, they would likely think twice before pulling the same stunt on anyone else.  Actually, in my humble opinion, at least half the population of this country needs a good a smack upside the head.  Seriously......this situation is getting uncomfortably crooked.......

Imagine how these same people might act in the event that they not only get no Xbox, but no food due to financial instability.  Imagine a 200 pound spoiled toddler with an addiction to immediate gratification being told "you are owed nothing".  The response would probably be similar to (or even worse than) a large portion of the American populace as featured in the videos below:

And for more Black Friday despair, check out the rap sheet for Wal-Marts across the country yesterday:

This whole thing is fking pathetic . Pepper spraying for x box games for your kids, give me a break. How about teaching your kids about finance and how to survive in this brave new world. How about instead of zombyfing your children to sit in front of the TV you actually spend time with them. I am more than capable of affording an XBOX but don’t plan on having one in my house. When my kids turn 7 or 8 will teach tem the art of negotiation and how to trade the markets or at least how to read a chart. Real life skills you don’t get by watching TV or in school for that matter.

From the article:

'Relations between the United States and Pakistan, its ally in the war on militancy, have been strained following the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden by U.S. special forces in a raid on the Pakistani garrison town of Abbottabad in May, which Pakistan called a flagrant violation of sovereignty.'

There is no way in hell that anybody proof-read this before pushing the 'send' button.

"A man collapsed while doing some Black Friday shopping in a crowded store, and people nearby continued to shop.

Witnesses tell some shoppers walked around and even over the man's body."

I believe a good use of Agent Provocateurs would be in black friday situations like this to get the shoppers fighting with each other. Someone could yell out, Free Videos in isle 10, or something like that, to get the herd stomping each other.

"Liquid ass" - I had a mouthful of soda and was already struggling to contain it after reading about fart spray (another one of those products where you wonder why no one made it years ago!) Liquid ass led to aspiration and projectile spray.

Two things:

1) I'm with the bitch who pepper sprayed everyone.  Those savages deserved it, so fuck them.

2) It occured to me that if this somehow manages to continue as a tradition, a new hobby of Black Friday Watching will spring up, where additional people will show up at the stores simply to observe and film the carnage that will ensue, then sell the videos on the black market (they will have been illegalized to "discourage" bringing more people to the scene) as a sole source of income.  The buyers will include many of those who were filmed engaging in death matches for the last copy of Call of Duty.

Ok, and a third thing:

c) If I were an employee at one of these stores, I would seriously consider quitting, if it were not for the fact that the economy is so bad that you'd likely be committing financial suicide.  But at some point, these people have to realize that they are putting their lives in danger by going to work at a retail establishment.  Miners, high-rise construction workers, cops (pigs), and career military folks, among other professions, are ones in which one might be expected to die while carrying out their occupation, but mongering consumer goods post-Thanksgiving?

I am Chumbawamba.

I enjoy watching the carnage , trampling to death , and general mayhem of Black Friday shopping episodes from the comfort of my man cave. The reports and video will probably be coming in all weekend for me to enjoy. I have a special fondness for the trampling, but this year certainly did not disappoint with the creativeness of the sheeple shenanigans reality show. Great entertainment value.

Talk about trading your values for nothing. Very sad. I do understand what is happening, you could not even get away from the Black Friday crap even here on ZH. The hype is overwhelming for many. To think your whole self-image is connected to a shopping day. If I don't buy this thing I am nothing, very sad. I blame the media as well, it seemed even more over the top this year?

"Relations between the United States and Pakistan, its ally in the war on militancy,"


I don't remember us declaring a war on "militancy," do you?  At least "terrorism" is a somewhat specific tactic.  Militancy? 


[mil-i-tuhnt] Show IPA adjective
1. vigorously active and aggressive, especially in support of a cause: militant reformers. 2. engaged in warfare; fighting. noun 3. a militant person. 4. a person engaged in warfare or combat.

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Your war on militancy quote is now edited out, they must read ZH. For me, this remaining quote is the zinger:

However, Pakistani military spokesman Major-General Athar Abbas said NATO had been given maps of the area, with Pakistani military posts identified.


"When the other side is saying there is a doubt about this, there is no doubt about it. These posts have been marked and handed over to the other side for marking on their maps and are clearly inside Pakistani territory."

So, that makes Al-Qaeda/Taliban the other, other side?

Sounds like NATO might have hit their intended target in the AfPak war. Pakistan wants it both ways, well, they're getting it.

As was mentioned, wait till the Mal Wart mobs find the grocery isle empty.  This story is very relevant if you have "ears to hear".

NATO; violent mob of resource hungry goons on the other side of the planet

The commander of NATO-led forces in Afghanistan, General John R. Allen, offered his condolences to the families of Pakistani soldiers who "may have been killed or injured."


oops! ... sorries ... my bad ... condolences, like, for everybody ... all better now ... ok, couple of weeks ... we're good.

These psychos will never get it, until it's their own family getting slaughtered by some insane foreign arsehole (i.e. just like them), but even then I doubt they'll be able to comprehend the connections of cause and effect for every murder they have committed, for no viable or credible rationale.


Dempsey's spokesman, Colonel David Lapan, could not confirm the closure of the Pakistani border crossing to trucks carrying supplies for ISAF forces. However, he noted that "if true, we have alternate routes we can use, as we have in the past."


Oh yeah, they just lost their best logistics supply option ... and they they don't really care? ... doesn't really matter? ... have other options?

yeah ... uhuh ... other than a C-17A ... like, name one.

It's a wee bit like trying to win the battle of the bulge with your main supply route running through the Rhur Valley and controlled by German troops, ... so trying to sustain your fielded force's needs via DC-3 ... try not to use any fuel or ammo, or chew through any hardware, better still, don't use it, as you won't be getting parts ... and dust off those goat recipes. In Vietnam the US had access to open-ocean, to resupply a large complex combat force situated close to the coast.  Indeed, the US spent much effort strenthening its own supplys, while trying to prevent the North re-suppling down the Ho Chi Minh trail.

The dirty little secret of Afghanistan is that the reason the US does not expand the troop level further is because it can't sustain a larger force there, in the field, in combat.

The west just blew its foot off ... and here comes the proxy-war - proper.

Dumb bad luck and coincidence?

Conspiracy to generate an emergency? 

Or just unimaginable stupidity and fucking pathetic 'leadership'?

I have two teenage boys and I would actually advise you to expose your children to Xbox and video games at an early age. If you don't, it will be the "forbidden fruit" and when they leave home at 18 or 21 they may dive into game playing 24-7 because at last the forbidden fruit is accessible. What happens if they play video games when they're growing is they eventually realize that most of them are basically the same game - you travel around, go on missions, gather weapons, and kill cartoon people. It's then that they realize that video games aren't that big a deal. I give my boys 1 hour of screen time a day on school days and 2 hours on weekends.

Have you never read Lt. Col. Grossman?  We're not talking Pac-Man or Zelda here.  These games are specifically useful for the psychological conditioning of trained killers, only the Xbox doesn't come with a trainer like the US Army does.

They will have access to games long before 18 to 21 unless you lock them in a basement without specifically feeding it to them.  For God's sake, take them down to a shooting or archery range, community garden or learn a language together as a family...give them something useful to do so when Modern Warfare 3 comes live to a street near them they've got a chance.

Mental dehumanization of separate groups of people leads directly to tragedy.  You would do well to remember that.

These rushing crowds are merely symptoms of a non-economic system, where prices are artificially lowered on artificially scarce goods.  This is the fault of the companies involved, who wish to create a feeding frenzy mentality for some reason.

I'm actually surprised things have remained this benign. I was expecting everybody to be tazing each other after tazers first came out. I was expecting the same with pepper spray, but this is the first time I've seen it, and tazers and pepper spray have been around for years now.

I can't carry non-deadly weapons because I'd be tazing or spraying every idiot I saw. The life-and-death aspect of my deadly weapons make me think about consequences.

All these people elbowing through crowds to get a stack of crappy $2 waffle makers, I don't get it.  Are they reselling them on eBay for $5 or something?

As if most of them would know how to post an item on ebay.  They are "consumers" not entrepreneurs.  That waffle maker will sit unused next to last year's $7 toaster oven (that broke on the third use) and the $26 DVD player from 2009 that hasn't worked since January of 2010.

In lives so free of accomplishment and integrity they must somehow get their hands on "stuff" to have any self-worth.  It is pretty sad.

Just think what these people are going to be like when the government has to turn off the "free shit" spigot.  That is what frightens me.  They will lash out in a way that will make Black Friday look like a debutante ball.

Ya LeZinc, as an American I am not particularly proud of this behavior. A shame some of these people are not taking time to educate themselves on self-sustainability. Or as other commentator mentioned, studying a second language for the kids or hell, even getting out for a walk.

On the ground I can tell you about half the people still go ga-ga over that $100 off a laptop or X-Box. But the other half are keeping their head down in survival mode seeking solutions to no growth in an inflationary environment (soon deflationary).

I'm involved with local city management now. It is far more enjoyable than what I expected. Growth is restrained but not gone completely. In America we had excess through credit writ large. So now Americans have to get used to multiplying pennies for growth. It will take some time to relearn good habits, honesty and sense of community.

Fewer deaths and injuries than last year=worse?

Tell me, old man, what is the devil's music today?

This is just human nature.  It isn't changing. It isn't getting worse, nor is it getting better.  The only thing that changes are the circumstances which draw out particular types of behaviors, and in this case, we have a far more active news cycle than we once did, so we hear about things to a much greater degree than we did even twenty years ago.

The way to fix this is to cease the generation of mobs by spreading these sales out, or moving them online.  Having spectacular sales that all start at a certain time set up a feeding frenzy mentality that leads to things like this.  Indeed, lowering prices far below their equilibrium prices, while also having limited supply of said items was always a highly uneconomical way to run a business or a society.  But that is exactly where society is headed, and as such, we can expect to see a lot more of this type of behavior in the future.

Sat, 11/26/2011 - 15:01 | 1915588 Things that go bump
Things that go bump's picture

This sort of behavior has been known and commented on for years, by even the most casual observer.  Women's behavior at a sale always used to be the cliched butt of jokes and comics when I was a kid in the 50s and whole episodes of sit coms were based on it (back then, men only shopped when a major purchase was being contemplated so they felt entitled to feel superior).  These days, the standard of behavior is so much lower than it used to be and one really has to ask oneself why Walmart is promulgating and continuing such shocking displays, and even encouraging and goading people on (wrapping certain displays in plastic and making a crowd wait as it grows larger and larger and more and more excited is a new and interesting experiment). You can't tell me that Walmart does not have behavioral psychologists on its payroll and is not aware of exactly what they are playing with here. This is becoming increasingly dangerous for shoppers and employees alike and some people bring their children into such a situation.  There haven't been mass deaths yet, just the occasional one.  This year it was pepper spray, but maybe next year there will be a fire or something, it is only a matter of time, and the losses will be tragic and horrifying.

Black Friday shopping is a tradition that ought to go away.  Based on security issues alone, we'd never think this was a good idea if someone came up with it today.  

Here's a story about a Northern Cal shopper who was shot when he resisted a robbery attempt as he came out of a WalMart:

Nothing attracts a crowd, like a crowd and foot traffic is the name of the retail game.

Somehow I think the stampede mentality creates a sense of urgency in others to actually go out and shop.  I think the Walmart incidents actually draw would be shoppers out of their hovels.

And there we have it. That's what all these retail gimmicks are about: inducing a false sense of urgency to get people to go shopping.

To my eyes, a store that packed is an obvious hazard even without the pepper spray (where the heck is the fire marshall?), and anyone foolish enough to be around that many irrational people shouldn't be surprised when bad things happen.
