    There was a guy in target today that got his hands on some guitar hero 3's for ps2 and it was the 2 guitar set. They were 80 dollars and he was giving them to people for 20 dollars before buying them.. So they had to give him 20 and then go pay at the register the 80 dollars lol.. Capitalism it its finest I suppose!

    i'm guessing he doesn't work there and was just a dude who managed to get some in his cart, you'd think he could be thrown out though.

    I don't think he was a worker, I think he was just some dude who physically picked up the Guitar Hero sets before other people.

    I don't know...I think if I was management, I woulda had 'em escorted out. Buy 'em or don't, but you don't get to risk my sales by inflating my potential customer's costs.

    I'd have had my biggest, meanest dock-worker employees give him the bum's rush. Good for their morale, especially today.

    There were some mad people when they said yea ill take one and he said ok 20 bucks but no one yelled at him or anything..

    As for the golf club to the knees.. Maybe for a MP transformer... but not worth a criminal record lol..

    That guy needs five across the eyes....
    I'd have given him the $20 and then followed up with the Honkey Tonk Man treatment....

    I wonder if a lot of homeless guys got in line for those vouchers. Looked like easy money, especially if you were going to be sleeping outside anyway.

    WTF? Why wouldn't the store boot him out? (Too be fair, I have no idea what Black Friday is like... but WTF?)

    I would have just took them from him anyway. It's not stealing since he didn't own them.

    The people that actually give this low-life the $20 are no better than him.
