On a day that most have been anticipating more than Thanksgiving itself, Black Friday has finally arrived and it has delivered as many expected.

Most stores had the longest lines of the year as customers flooded into Walmarts, Best Buys, Targets, Macy’s, JC Penney’s, and every other type of store imaginable to get products at some of the lowest prices ever.

Shoppers went home today with low price TV’s, computers, video game systems, clothing, technological goods, and furniture.

However, violence hit some of the shopping locations.

In California, a Los Angeles woman pepper sprayed other shoppers trying to get their hands on XBOX’s to make sure she got one. She pepper sprayed 10 people, got her XBOX, and checked out before police arrived.

Other acts of violence were reported in Connecticut, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and New York. The majority of the violence occurred inside of Walmart stores.

Despite the few acts of violence, the overwhelming majority of the day was safe for shoppers with the violence only occurring at the few mentioned stores.

At the end of the day, millions of Americans got great deals on items they have been wanting for months, as well as great gifts for the holidays for their loved ones.
