Probe shops over Black Friday hell
IF stores can afford to discount so much over Black Friday, then surely they are ripping consumers off the rest of the time? Why do they not reduce the price of their products over the course of a whole year?
Seeing the images of fights and injuries, it seems as if companies are revelling in the infamy of it all.
Imagine if a festival wilfully arranged such a dangerous situation - its organisers would be hauled over the coals.
I hope that the Health and Safety Executive will investigate why shops did not provide enough security and staff to prevent chaos.
