The Beef Jerky Riot at Crossgates Mall

Ah, those classic stories of holiday consumerism.  The Black Friday stampedes at 4:00 in the morning as people fight to get through the doors to buy those $200 flatscreens.  The knock-down, drag-em-out’s of three mothers fighting over the last two Cabbage Patch dolls or Tickle Me Elmo toys.

Yeah, thankfully we’re not doing that any more.

That was not the case at Crossgates Mall last Tuesday.

Because, apparently, according to this video – there was a straight-up melee at the World of Jerky store at Crossgates’ lower level.

And here’s something that’s different from those Black Friday or Cabbage Patch doll fights …

Someone caught the entire fight on their camera phone.

Holy Slim Jim, Batman …

So … what do you say about a fight like this?

There was a Beef in the Jerky Store?

Someone got Jack’d in their Links?

The only thing that was dehydrated was the fighters after three rounds?

I don’t know … but all I’m saying is that if you’re going to have a brawl like this in a shopping mall … and someone takes the time to video it …

At least can we video the fight in landscape mode and not portrait mode?  Sheesh…
