An American Tradition: Black Friday Violence [VIDEO]

Via the New York Daily News:

Call it Black-eye Friday. Brawling shoppers heralded the start of Black Friday madness at a Louisville, Ky., mall on Thanksgiving night, wrestling each other to the ground in a packed food court. The fracas knocked a woman to the floor as shoppers at Mall St. Matthews gawked at the sight of two unidentified men slapping, punching and tearing at each other’s shirts. A second fight video circulated on social media early Friday showing a scuffle between a group of men at a mall in Florence, Ky. The clashes are the latest examples of violence on Black Friday — the busiest shopping day of the year for big box stores and malls.
