Hours after families across America gathered around with their loved ones to give thanks to what they already have, shoppers set out late Thursday night to join the crowds that flooded retail stores all over. The shopping holiday brought out the worst in many people who participated in violent acts against customers and police officers.
A shopper was shot late Thursday around 12:45 a.m. in Las Vegas after purchasing a big screen TV while trying to take it home. The shopper was approached by a man with a gun while walking home in his complex. He shot two warning shots, which caused the victim to hand over his TV. As the thief tried to put the TV into his car, the victim approached him to try to get it back. He was then shot twice in the leg but not seriously injured.
Early Friday morning in Chicago, police shot a driver of a car that was dragging another police officer. The cop responded to an alleged shoplifting and chased the suspect to the car when it began to move while he was partially in it. The driver and the officer were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Another shopper was charged with aggravated assault in New Jersey after arguing with a Walmart store Manager about a television set. The customer was also charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Although the majority of people prefer to shop online today, there are still overwhelming crowds due to the shortage of shopping days this season. Since Thanksgiving fell much later in November this year, there are 6 less shopping days in the season than last year.
