People are nuts.  I've never gone shopping on black Friday...and I never will.  I don't care if they're giving stuff away.

I have never even experienced unruly shoppers.  Everyone I have run into is happy to be getting good deals and patient.  If there was a crowd getting frustrated and out of control I would simply leave that location and move on to the next store.

I find the people to be rude & obnoxious. We also do not have any in my city because they are non union. The one time I tried to go the people acted like asses & as if they were going to die if they could not get something. Nothing is worth it to me to deal with that junk.
