Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 22, 2017

We took a close look at data from past Black Friday incidents and where they occurred from 2006 to 2016. To figure out where they might happen this year, we combined past incident data with general FBI crime statistics for each state, and Google search trends that indicate which states are already on the hunt for Black Friday deals.

The states with the highest crime rates plus the highest interest in Black Friday -- especially if they've had Black Friday incidents in the past -- could be ripe for fights this year.

We're not psychic, so we can't say for certain which locations will have one too many over-eager patrons. But we can make a few educated guesses -- as well as give you some tips to stay safe out there and still get the goods.

Walmart is ground zero for Black Friday violence.

I'm surprised we haven't named it something else considering the PC culture we now live in.

Patience. The SJW Great Purification of Language and Culture campaign will never end.
