    Black Friday: The shop-ocalypse

    Shopping Violence

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     rc317sg shot this video of a Black Friday shopper at a Walmart in Southington, CT, being tasered by police. 'It was unclear from my position what exactly happened with the man and why he was being detained, however, you could hear bystanders yelling things like, "stop!" "That's not necessary!"' he said. 'This was my first Black Friday shopping experience, and I'll never forget what I saw. You see sides of people that they, themselves, didn't even know existed.' CNN affiliate WTIC reported more details of the incident, saying Patrick Brew was "charged with interfering with police after he failed to cooperate with officers and caused a disturbance inside the store."
