(INTELLIHUB.COM) — We see it every year now, senseless shoppers waiting hours, and in some cases days, to get the deals they want they day after Thanksgiving known as Black Friday.

While storekeepers and businesses ramped up their security specifically for this reason, at least three arrests have already been made in the United Kingdom as “Metropolitan Police officers were called to three Tesco stores in London in the early hours of the morning amid fears of confrontations in heated queues.”, according to The Independent.
Although the problem isn’t limited to the U.K. obviously. Another chaotic scene took place at an Urban Outfitters store in the U.S. when the front door was opened to shoppers.

To make it more interesting the Missouri Army National Guard along with state and local police patrolled the Walmart in Ferguson where riots have already taken place this week in hopes of stopping any looting or violence, likely costing taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars.

YouTuber Mark Dice even chimed in on the subject as usual, passing consumers by in his vehicle while shouting through a bullhorn things like:
“You are a disgrace to Christmas […] “lined up like a bunch of animals”.
“Buy a bigger flat screen so you can detach yourself further from reality […] “shame on you all”, Dice carried on getting a few responses from the crowd in a YouTube stunt.
