Geez, people, get a grip.

Black Friday nearly turned bloody at a south Georgia Walmart today, with hordes of shoppers clawing and shoving each other as they tried to snatch up discounted cell phones.

A video of the frenzy circulating online shows a large crowd of people pushing, yelling and grabbing boxes off a shelf at the store in Moultrie.

Walmart spokesman Randy Hargrove says a deal on a cell phone with a prepaid, unlimited usage plan “led to excitement among our customers.” He called the incident unfortunate, but said it was isolated.

Oh yeah, isolated. Seemingly to much of the country.
