Every year it seems to get worse and worse, the violence that surrounds Black Friday and the mayhem that has become the number one shopping day in America. We see it year after year, trampling at Wal-Mart over the new Xbox, lines and aggravated customers getting in scuffles over the latest toy for their kid that they have waited in line hours of even days for. Black Friday has become an ugly day, filled with masses of overwhelming people and flashes of violent outbursts at malls, plazas and stores.
As scary as it sounds, even though it ‘Tis the season to be jolly,’ there have been 7 deaths and 98 injuries attributed to Black Friday shopping events since 2006. There are even Black Friday death and injury counters that are easy enough to find on the Internet. But if you own or run a store, or manage a mall or a plaza, Black Friday shopping and the potential injuries and law suits that come with it are no cheerful or laughing matter at all.
That is why so many retails employ extra expert outside security for Black Friday and the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas that marks the sometimes brutal holiday shopping season. Protecting customers, controlling massive unwieldy crowds, and even protecting your storefront from crazed customers fighting for the last available Cabbage Patch Doll is a serious issue in today’s world, and it cannot be taken lightly.
