    I was just there… I heard some lady ask what a code blue was, to which a man in a yellow vest replied ‘bomb’… so I decided it was time for me to go. Hope everyone’s safe.

    Poor Walmart? The government should ban black friday. People are barbaric over it. Of course there was no bomb. Someone.wanted to disrupt the psychos.

  • REALLY????

    I know D. I was being facetious. I agree that people are idiots on black friday. and walmart took it to new extremes this year by running 3 different sales starting thursday and going through friday. My wife was in the one in Van Buren 2 hours before the first sale to pick up a few food items before it got stupid. She saw a bin of socks marked at $3. When she was looking through them, she was told by one of the Gestapo, rudely, that she wasn’t allowed to touch those. She’s refusing to point the little turd out to me. I hope all the upper echelon walmart creeps like all that money when they are roasting in he!! for the sin of greed
