If there’s ever a time during the year to lose hope in all humanity, it’s on Black Friday.
Year after year, eager shoppers flock to department stores in hopes of getting their hands on discounted items for the holiday season. Unfortunately, a day intended for jolly shopping has developed a reputation for naughty behavior.
This year was no different, as several violent incidents across the country were caught on camera.
A fight outside of a Forever 21 store at the Lehigh Valley Mall in Pennsylvania on Thursday night was caught on video and shared on Facebook. At least five young men, possibly teenagers, are seen brawling as security guards attempt to break up the melee, but to no avail.
Two men were initially involved in a fistfight when a third man jumped in to deliver a number of blows to his victim. At least two other men are then seen getting into the fray. It’s not clear what ignited the Thanksgiving Day brawl.
Samuel Safadi, who filmed the fight, said security eventually separated the men and no one was arrested.
