Black Friday 2016's US death toll rises to 3 after more fatal shootings
Following the shooting, Juarez jumped into his car to flee, but shoppers had already called authorities and a police helicopter was able to follow him for about 15 miles (24 km).

He was then arrested without incident. Police confirmed Juarez would be charged with murder and aggravated assault.

The perpetrators of the two earlier shootings in Nevada and New Jersey are still believed to be at large, however.

There were incidents reported from more countries as well. Does anyone else thinks this is getting worse every year?

And what about that "Black Friday has racist connotations" claims? It's silly, really. But some people seem to be pushing an agenda with this. Get ready for more controversies.

What do you think of all this?

people line up and get their shit and leave at my shitty retail job. theyre there at 1am, buy all the door busters, leave, and the place doesnt get busy again until noon which is typical for a weekend. then everybody complains they dont like crowds, come at a busier time, and complain that all the good shit was bought out. same every year.
Getting worse? nah but the companies work people up when they don't need to. TVs went on sale 2 weeks ago at some retailers for the black friday sale prices, people either don't know or come in black friday anyway for them. As for all the media reports on violence: theyre blowing it out of proportion. the election ended so what can they talk about until january?
edit: also i think i remember reading an article that had a bunch of retail related fights/deaths/injuries posted around one thanksgiving but a. the incidents didnt happen on black friday and b. many were the result of ongoing disputes that just so happened to end up in stores.
