First Buy

This is insane.

Think you're a serious shopper because you plan on hitting the stores before the sun comes up on Friday?

Lakeland's Laura Johnson, along with her 16-year-old son, Brandon Buckler, were camped outside Lakeland's Best Buy, 4215 U.S. 98 N., at 8 a.m. on Tuesday. Though they were easily the first in line, they were joined by a few others later in the day.

"We want to get good deals on digital cameras, TVs and laptops," said Johnson, a cosmetologist. She added she was hoping to get a laptop for herself, another for a friend and another for her son, Chad, who planned on joining her on the sidewalk later in the day.

Johnson isn't sure what deals will be offered at Best Buy on Friday morning, referred to as Black Friday by retailers because they typically go from "in the red" to "in the black."

They are in line for a sale still three days away and Johnson and Buckler don't even know what will be on sale. No wonder people consider Floridians crazy.

Given the unruly nature of the mobs that appeared outside of stores nationwide Thursday and Friday they should start checking IDs. Then run checks for outstanding warrants (oops, half the line dissppears), call in INS and check immigration status (oops, the other half disappears).

Arrest the few remaining for vagrancy. Send the bill for this nationwide law enforcement sweep to those communist-kissing jerks at Walmart.
