Every holiday season on the day after Thanksgiving, Americans are regaled with stories of the pandemonium that ensues in retail chains throughout the country.

Known as “Black Friday” it is a day known for huge retail sales with some of the biggest and best deals for hot selling items all year. Accompanying the hordes of jovial holiday shoppers, are stories of violence and even death.

This year, for instance, a 61-year-old man in Charleston, West Virginia was trampled to death by fellow shoppers who reportedly did not even slow down to help. On the west coast, two men in Palm Desert, California gunned each other down on Black Friday after the women shopping with them fought over items at a Toys “R” Us.
