The fights were reminiscent of violence that broke out in the early 1990s on streets across America as the shoes became popular targets for thieves.

I sure wouldn't. That would be classified as what is known to some as "shopping". I don't do that. That's my wife's job.

I heard Mark Steyn talking about this on Rush's show.
No way a stupid pair of shoes would ever excite me that much - unless... maybe...
Well, if Raquel Welch was wearing them...

I wonder how many of the shoppers/rioters also have an EBT card.

Hell I get upset if I have to spend more tha $25 dollars on jeans. One report Iheard tonight was in one of those frenzy's someone actually fired shots in the air. Makes me want to increase my reloading budgetjust in case another civil war breaks out here...don't laugh, there are already signs of one developing IMHO.

There is the affect of not going into a area that you know can be like that. The law frowns on people knowingly going into a bad situation armed. If you can avoid a place like that so much the better. This is not written on stone. Just something to contemplate. Circumstances play into this.

Also, is it really worth getting hurt or dead,even if you do everything right at the place of danger? Find another way to get the item when things calm down for a bit. Rushing into what is very possible mob event is not the place to be.

I was 8 months old during the Watts Riots in which my father had to defend our family a few times at our residence, I myself had to do the same during the L.A. Riots.I am a exception and you don't want to be in that situation, civilian warfare. If I was a liberal tree hugger I wouldn't be typing this.

They're not really 'shoes' ... they're 'sneakers'!
When I was growing up, only the poor kids wore sneakers. And now, with the cost of sneakers, their parents are poor. The more things change, the more they remain the same.
