    Default So Americans can only purchase things when it's Black Friday right?


    VIDEO: Black Friday scrum at Walmart
    An American woman who pepper-sprayed other shoppers during US holiday sales so she could get an Xbox video game console at a deep discount has turned herself in

    The woman surrendered at a police station following the incident late on Thursday (local time), which left at least 10 people injured on the biggest shopping day of the year in the US.

    Her name has not been released but she has been described as being in her 30s.

    "The investigation is still ongoing," said Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Bruce Borihahn, adding that the woman's name and eventual charges filed against her would be made public at a later time.

    "We have several victims and witnesses that need to be interviewed to determine what appropriate actions need to be taken."

    In Thursday's incident at a Walmart store in the Porter Ranch neighbourhood, the woman - trying to take advantage of low "doorbuster" prices on the Xbox console - turned a can of mace on other shoppers as the store opened late at night.

    The woman was able to purchase the Xbox and leave the store before police arrived.

    At least 10 customers, including children, were injured and have filed police complaints.

    A fire department spokesman told the Los Angeles Times that 20 people were treated for injuries.

    The incident, along with several shootings, marred the start of the US holiday shopping season that traditionally kicks off after the Thanksgiving holiday with Black Friday bargains.

    Meanwhile, early estimates show the Black Friday sales hit a new record for the start of the holiday shopping season.

    Sales hit $US11.4 billion, up 6.6 per cent compared to last year, and the biggest dollar amount ever spent on Black Friday, Chicago-based research firm ShopperTrak said in a statement.

    It is the largest year-on-year gain since an 8.3 per cent increase in sales between 2006 and 2007.

    But the company warned: "Still, it's just one day. It remains to be seen whether consumers will sustain this behaviour through the holiday shopping season."

    There was another story about a man being smashed to the ground by the police because they thought he was trying to steal 2 games.

    it happens every black friday. Its nothing new. It would happen the same in every country. Imagine $0.01 Galaxy S2 offer or $140 xbox offer in BD. Guess what the line is gonna be. Its gonna be total chaos.

    I'll agree with @[email protected] Bro, if something like black Fridays took place in BD surely there would be a huge crowd who would show up to buy the goods, however, I can assure that ppl wouldn't use pepper sprays to get themselves ahead of the others who are in line, but on the other hand, we would definitely be needing R.A.B. to prevent the market from ending up as a ufc arena.
