A Couple Of Wal-Mart Regulars Got Into A Baseball Bat Wielding Brawl Because Someone’s Dress Got Called Ugly

Weird, America.

Weird, America.

If human society was divided into seven groups that most mirrored the world’s biomes, the Wal-Mart’s of the world would all be placed in the coniferous forest. Why? Because it’s a cold, merciless landscape that is populated mostly by inedible plant life and cunning animals of prey. That’s pretty much Wal-Mart. Am I wrong? Just look at this video of 30+ people getting into a brawl with baseball bats because someone insulted one of their dresses.

Via NBC:

“Four people were arrested after a 30-person brawl erupted at a New York Wal-Mart, allegedly over an insult about a woman’s dress, authorities said.

Gates Police Chief Jim VanBrederode said the fight started around 7 p.m. Sunday after two 17-year-olds made fun of a dress worn by a 24-year-old woman. He said the altercation quickly escalated into a melee.

The chief said people went into the sporting goods section of the store and grabbed baseball bats to use in the fight. Video posted to Facebook captured the brawl; at one point, a flying trash can is seen entering the frame from the left side and crashing onto the floor.

Police said a 17-year-old girl threw a can of food at a 52-year-old man, hitting him in the head. She is charged with assault, harassment and related offenses. Three others have been charged with disorderly conduct.

Authorities are continuing to review surveillance video.”

At least the 24 year-old was mature enough to not attempt to quell the fires against the 17 year-old instead of making things worse. But, also, these 17 year-olds clearly had other issues to combat, including respect for their elders, since they hit a 52 year-old man in the face with a garbage can.
