    Woman accused of pepper-spraying shoppers

    A woman suspected of dousing fellow Walmart shoppers with pepper spray during a Black Friday eve bargain frenzy in suburban Los Angeles has turned herself in to authorities, police said on Saturday.

    She is accused of unleashing a can of pepper spray on a crowd of bargain hunters at a Walmart in L.A.'s Porter Ranch neighborhood on Thursday night as shoppers waited for store clerks to unwrap a shipment of discounted Xbox video game consoles.

    Authorities said the woman then grabbed one of the consoles, quickly purchased it and left the scene as fire department personnel arrived to treat about 20 people who were injured by the spray, including some children.

    The incident was one of several outbreaks of violence around the country late Thursday and on Friday that gave an air of desperation to this year's launch of the traditional holiday shopping season.

    In northern California, a man was shot and critically wounded by robbers trying to steal newly purchased merchandise in a parking lot outside a Walmart in San Leandro, near Oakland, on Friday morning.

    Elsewhere, security personnel used stun guns and pepper spray to control frenzied or disorderly shoppers.

    I think she was exercising her right to bear arms.

    Careful there, TrackerSam...or some of us might think that a sense of humor actually lurks beneath that crusty exterior of yours.
