Finally, the reports of a Black Friday fight are coming in. What were the Florida Wal-Mart shoppers fighting over? GPS devices:
"People were gathered at the items they wanted to buy. The customers claim the person at the GPS location, started selling the devices before 5 a.m. and they started a brawl... In Seminole County, another fight at a Walmart ended with three law enforcement agencies responding. According to WKMG, the Seminole County Sheriff's office, Lake Mary Police Department and the Sanford Police Department were all called out to the Walmart around 5 a.m."
The brand of GPS device was not mentioned. But these consumers apparently do not believe Google Maps Navigation will not in fact destroy GPS brands.
Skirmishes have been reported at several other Black Friday sales. A California Wal-Mart closed its doors after a small fight broke out over bargains. It reopened soon after. But largely, Black Friday appears to, so far, be incident free.
Anyway, there you go: Bloodshed. Are you happy now, you animals?
