find Pensacola native Beth
Suarez in the flocks of folks
lined up for
Black Friday. "To me, a crowd is
kind of a challenge in the first
place, so if there's going to be
twice as many or three times as
many people as normal, that's a
good reason for me not to
participate." Antonia Bennett
didout for some holiday
shopping at the
Wal-Mart on Blue Angel Parkway.
But the car she left in wasn't
the family minivan.
"It is a very stupid way to
spend your Thanksgiving
holidayin jail." Escambia
County deputies say Bennett took
at TracPhone out of a display
case 30 minutes prior to it
going on sale,
circumventing the line people
waiting. "People have to stand
in line and follow those rules
to make it a smooth process for
everyone. Unfortunately, there
are always those people that
think they're above the rules
and they should just get what
they want." Deputies say Bennett
took the item to the grocery
side, where they confronted her.
After getting the phone from
Bennett, she became irate and
refused to leave the store.
Deputies had to pry her from her
shopping cart before ultimately
making the arrest.
"You kind of expect it on Black
Friday." Reporter- Why is that?
"Because people go overboard
with the sales." Summer and
Tracy Long were in the store
during Bennett's tirade.
They described the atmosphere as
scary, full of long lines and
rude people.so Bennett's story
doesn't surprise them. "It's
kind of ironic for Black Friday
to be just
after everyone is giving thanks
for everything that they already
have." Bennett's alleged actions
have put on a black mark on
Black Friday. But most know
leaving their homes can come
with some unfortunate risk.

all free to adopt
Suarez's school of thought. In
