Black Friday atmosphere gets electrifying

There have been shootings, tramplings, brawls over parking spaces, and pepper sprayed eyes. And just when it seems like things can't get any worse, someone brings a taser to a hair-pull fight to Black Friday 2013.

The footage, which was filmed in a Philadelphia (affectionately known as Kill-adelphia), left onlookers, including Black Friday veterans, shocked. But this was nothing compared to what happened in Chicago, where police opened fire on shoplifters.

And if this still doesn't convince you that subdued Boxing Day sales are the way to go, then perhaps this super compilation of the Black Friday psychosis will put the fear in you.
