At least four other people, including a woman who was eight months pregnant, were taken to hospitals for observation or minor injuries, and the store in Valley Stream on Long Island closed for several hours before reopening. According to witnesses people had been lined up at 10:00 pm the night before to take advantage of cheap merchandise, including 400 dollar flat screen televisions.
I do not go out on "Black Friday" because I expect this type of ignorant behavior from people. I am not a pessimist, but a realist. It's not that I don't like sales, because I do.
