Rush For Shoes At Texas Mall Ends With Pepper Spray

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A Fort Worth shoe store may think better of its first-come-first-serve policy after a small riot occurred surrounding the release of the new Retro Air Jordan shoes.

The Shoe Palace at Hulen Mall decided to let people line up to buy the shoes. A line formed around 5:00 a.m. and at one point the pushing and shoving in the crowd knocked over a couple police officers working as security.

“At that point the mall security officer sprayed a short burst of mace (pepper spray) into the crowd,” Fort Worth police Sergeant Pedro Criado explained. “The Fort Worth officer that got knocked down to the ground, he sprayed a short burst of mace into the crowd as well.”

    How about I just come out and say it. This is niggers. It’s what they do. Call me whatever you want, ban me, hate me, politically-correct me I don’t f*cking care anymore. I grew up with this shit and it’s only gotten worse because blacks are the DNC’s Viet Cong.

    So there.

    Oh, c’mon, J Frank – people were rioting over B-ball shoes long before there were negroes. The Lakota Sioux used to have kick-ass fights over B-ball shoes and mocassins. Neandertalers used to battle the Cro-Magnon to the death over B-ball and tennis shoes.

    EVERYBODY knows this!

    Air Jordan Nike Riot (ArJoNikRiotaa) dovetails nicely into the Kwanzaa Principles somewhere between Collective Work (Ujima ) and Responsibility (Ujamaa).

    The thing that stings me the most is that the money spent buying this crap is Government assistance money. Yep we are buying these shoes for them. While we buy our shoes at Wal-Mart, Payless and other places and debate whether to splurge on the $30 pair as opposed to the cheaper $20 pair of shoes; they get to buy this crap and kill each other over them.
    Sad to say but, I do not care that they kill each other over these. Leave the innocent people alone though and fight it out once you get back to your neighborhood.

    I say throw a truckload of the shoes in a burning pit of fire, and whatever mindless materialistic idiot goes after them……may he/she burn in hell.

    Shaking my head “so this is the meaning of life”.

    @J Frank Parnell: If I could I’d give you two thumbs up. I gave you one so you could edge closer to that magically #10.
