A disturbance broke out Thursday night when a large crown turned out for a special All-Star sneaker release at the Florida Mall Foot Locker.

Law enforcement officers in riot gear, and mounted partols, were called in to break up the crowd of shoe fans.

it's absolutely insane Tess, and it is like that every Thanksgiving over here, they call it Black Friday - couple of years ago a Walmart worker was stamped to death when the doors opened. This year a woman was arrested for pepper spraying other shoppers to get at a on sale xbox. I mean COME ON PEOPLE. I have only been to one black friday and that was enough - never again will I get up at 3am to save a few bucks on a tv - it's just not worth it.

At least no one was hurt and no one was arrested THIS TIME!

First of all I find it amazing that Nike is allowed to do this, make grand announcement that they are releasing a new sneaker and at midnight. I think they love the publicity and are manipulating the people to help provide it.

As for Black Friday? I sleep late that day and never go near any store why join the insanity? :shock:

that is exactly what I did this year, although the eldest boy went out and start lining up at 10pm outside target cause now they are all kicking off at midnight - he asked us to let his younger brother to go stand in line for him so he could go get some hot chocolate and i was like no way tough cookies. He saved a mightly $50 off a tv.

I suppose it is no different than those that go apeshit at the new years sales here.
I have never bothered to try.

LOL, can't say saving $50.00 would tempt me to stand out in the cold and if I did I would require more than a hot chocolate. Officers Surround Mall over Shoe Showdown riot 3090728455

Well you can get a commercial grade waffle maker for under $30 and I doubt if this one was a professional one. I don't even make pancakes much less waffles. LOL, I 'll eat out and order them then. Smile
