Black Friday Fights Are Most Likely in These States
So there's only one flat screen TV left at the door buster price, and you and another person grab it at the same time and start the stare down.
Do you push and pull and tackle that shopper like it's fourth-and-goal and the game is on the line? In these 10 states you do. Is Texas one of them?
Texas is actually pretty tame when it comes to Black Friday competitions. We're in the middle of the pack in terms of the "most likely to encounter fights at Black Friday sales."
Arkansas has the most shoppers that will kick some butt over those $2 pillows and Pioneer Woman cookware sets. Arkansas is the most likely place in the U.S. to encounter Black Friday fights.
And most of the other states are nearby. Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Missouri are in the top 10, and almost all of the most fight-prone states are in this section of the country, according to the Estately blog.
The blog used Facebook posts in those states showing interest in Black Friday sales, and combined that with the frequency of aggravated assaults according to crime reports.
Texas ranked 19th for assaults, and 25th for passion about Black Friday sales.
Online shopping in pajamas seemed like a good idea before, and now with this knowledge, it turns out it can also spare us a black eye too. Good luck!
