I heard that at one of the Black Friday sales this morning some lady sprayed pepper spray over a crowd of people trying to get to the same bargain she wanted.

Ha!

"The woman used the spray in more than one area of the Wal-Mart "to gain preferred access to a variety of locations in the store," said Los Angeles Fire Capt. James Carson.

"She was competitive shopping," he said.

"Police are searching for the woman but said they've had trouble getting a clear description of her."

Hard to see through the fog of tear gas, I guess....

Customers do not have to participate in the trial - but they will have to turn off their phones to make sure they aren't involved, reported CNN.

Signs around the malls are already warning people about the system,
I'm shocked they are even putting these signs up. I personally don't see anything more wrong with this than the security cameras they already had in place. So this currently gets an "ehh" from me. Actually if anything I find the idea of the software they might be using to do it kind of cool. I would love to see it in person.

Bob's story on the other hand... WTF! You guys gone pepper spray mad over there? ;)
I answer rhetorical questions for my own enjoyment.

One step away from 1984. What makes this any different
than charge card scanners? It is intrusive.
