Baby Hit With Shoe: Black Friday Marred by Greed, Brawls & Violence

(Newsweek) Black Friday is often a day of shopping mayhem, and this year was no different.

On Thursday night, a violent incident occurred in an Alabama mall, resulting in minor injuries, and a shopper accidentally threw a shoe at a baby, USA Today reported. The incident occurred early on Thanksgiving night when several fights broke out at the Riverside Galleria in Birmingham, Alabama.

AL.com reported early Friday morning that at least one fight was spotted by officials after 11 p.m., on the second floor of the mall. One victim was treated for minor injuries by Hoover Fire paramedics. No one, however, was taken to the hospital. According to officers, the fights were personal rather than sale-related.

    Might be a good idea to stay home and shop on internet. Lot safer for infants it looks like. Its nice to support local stores but not worth it if your child gets hurt.

    You would think that the items were free for the taking the way those animals are acting.

    The other worse thing about the weekend….traffic.

    I spent the weekend with my dad; had T’day dinner, watched football, dozed off and the Redskins won.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Whatever it is, and whatever it costs, it’s not worth it!
    “greed, brawls, and violence”… yup, that pretty much sums it up!
    I don’t do anything on the day after Thanksgiving but decorate for Christmas.
    I celebrate Thanksgiving by GIVING THANKS, and I celebrate Christmas by celebrating the birth of the Savior. I don’t buy anything for a list of people other than poor kids. So take that, you greedy corporations and people!

    christmas has become buying things we dont need, for people we dont like, with money we do not have ……

      rather than giving the Gospel of the One we need, for people who might become our brothers and sisters, that cost us nothing but Christ everything. Thank you Jesus – some have remembered that Thanksgiving is not a stop to eat before Christmas holiday.
