Another human being’s life couldn’t possibly be worth more than a new pair of pink retro Nikes…could it? Who thinks like these animals? Who places more value on a status symbol than the life or well-being of another human being?
Black Friday has been over for months, but you would never know it if you went to Eastland Center in Harper Woods on Saturday morning.
The mall was forced to close after rowdy crowds piled in for a chance to buy the newly-released Air Jordan Retro 12 “Vivid Pink” sneakers.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the mall opened at 8 a.m. and quickly closed after the crowd rushed the gate and broke a lock. Police got control of the situation and tried to open again at 10 a.m., only to see the same result.

A fight over a pair of new Nike Air Jordan 2 Retro “Wing It” shoes ended with gunfire at a suburban Minneapolis Foot Locker, wounding two people during the Saturday morning sale.
The shoes — worth about $200 — went on sale Saturday, sparking multiple disturbances throughout Minneapolis and Madison as people hoping to score a pair of Michael Jordan’s new line of sneakers found there wasn’t enough to go around.
In Madison, a scuffle broke out among a crowd of 60 customers after learning Finish Line Footwear had only 10 pairs. Meanwhile in Brooklyn Center, cops were already at the strip mall when a melee inside the store spilled out into the parking lot. Via: NYDN
