53-- There's also this thing called being an only child, or having divorced or single parents; as well as having a deceased parent. It's not that uncommon, especially with the whole 50% divorce rate and whatnot. There are a lot of other reasons why there may not be a capable parent to look after them.
163 - The earliest we're going to see the next generation of consoles is Christmas 2012. That's just over a year from now, which is a long time if you don't have an alternative console/a decent PC. Christmas 2012 isn't even guaranteed, it could be anything up to ~2015.

hmmm idk.. mybe a 5 year old girl should b left at home were she could choke and die. maybe the op is single or sumthung and had to take her. maybe op didn't hav a babysitter. next time I think I'll leave my 4 year old dousing at home . if i'm lucky, he'll die!( sarcasm)
I respect OP for standing up for his daughter, but I don't respect him for bringing her in the first place. You know there's such a thing as BASYSITTERS. You know, people you PAY to take care of your five year old while you're out fist fighting some people for some "savings." You don't have to have multiple parents or siblings. There's people that will gladly do it for some pay. If you can afford to go to Best Buy on Black Friday, you can afford to pay a babysitter. OR, don't go! Stay with your daughter at home. I don't think you're a bad parent, OP. I just hope that 1) your daughter is okay, 2) that you learn your lesson and not bring your daughter to Black Friday again, and 3) that karma catches up to the douche who punched a little girl for a stupid x-box.
Umm, I went black Friday shopping, and people were sitting their small children on items to save them. I don't know if that's the case for Op, but still don't bring a 5yr old to that. For one, it's hectic for an adult, so I could imagine for a kid. Second, it's freaking 2 in the morning, your child should be at home sleeping. And you put your child in risk to get badly hurt..she couldve been trampled! If you don't have a babysitter, or family to watch your kid...don't go. Simple. Good job standing up for your kid, but you put your kid in that situation.
Everyone is asking why OP couldn't just leave his/her daughter home, but I don't think they should have to bring their five year old and worry about a grown man punching her in the face. I mean honestly, this is the first time I have ever even heard of a person with the audacity to hit a kid, let alone one that's not their own. I'm not trying to justify the fact that Black Friday isn't a place for kids, but you shouldn't have to worry about your kid getting punched in the face? That's just not something you hear about ya know? And I bet the guy who did it was probably 150 pounds overweight, wearing a stained World of Warcraft t-shirt, living in his parents basement, and he was probably subscribed to every magazine/game related invention out there. That xbox was probably the highlight of his life.
They got cyber monday now so u can stay at home warm an comfy in ur pjs while you get all the good stuff. Ex: employee: 'everyone in line for electronocics' You: 'yes im finally next can I get the new 6g tablet in white?' Employee: 'oh looks like we just ran out, this year people are buying them online' You: 'wtf since when???, and I brought my kids :'(, my back hurts, wer hungry, cranky, I came here FOR NOTHING?, WTF THATS NOT RIGHT THIS IS ALL WE CAME HERE FOR, FOR YOUR DUMBASSES TO JUST TELL ME THAT SOME FUCKFACE ONLINE BEAT ME TO IT THANKS YOU FUCKING BITCHES!!!! I WANT MY TIME, GAS AND MONEY BACK FUCK YOU!!!! IM NEVER COMING BACK!!! IMMA GO PSYCO AND DROP ALL U FOOLS!!ARGGGHH!!!' Employee: 'sir calm down' You: 'NO YOU CALM THA FUCK DOWN ASS FACE IM GUNA GET MY FUCKING TABLET ONE WAY OR ANOTHER' KIDS: 'DADA IM HUNGRY' YOU: 'OK SWEETIE, Ill GET YOU NEXT TIME CUNTS' (gives middle finger)
I think I would rather pay full price online, then go out on black friday & risk my little girl's health.
I'm getting tired of the "YDI for taking your kid to a black friday sale" comments. While it might be true that it's unsafe, OP shouldn't have to worry about a full grown man hitting their daughter for an Xbox. Black Friday does not mean you suddenly have a license to kill. And as someone who used to work in retail, I can tell you how god damn pointless it is as well. Trick of the trade, mark up prices the month of october, and by the time black Friday rolls around they get marked back down to the original price to make it seem as though it's on sale. People are ridiculously easily suckered into "saving money".

YDI for bring your 5 year old to Black Friday. No offense. If you could not get anyone to watch her still YDI. Sorry op. Don't go out fir a while on Black Friday. She could have could hurt worse. Those crowds are crazy.
216- ideally, yes. But the Black Friday shoppers have set a precedence for being insane, selfish, and dangerous. The OP had to have been aware of the risk in bringing a small child to that madness. Regardless, hitting a 5-year-old is inappropriate, and the OP doesn't deserve that.
I'm sorry, "start making profit"? That makes no sense whatsoever. All major companies are making huge profits all the time, or they wouldn't be major companies. Saying they "go into the black" implies that they were previously in the red, and if that were the case, they'd go out of business, not have a sale once a year to make a profit for one day.
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is the beginning of the holiday shopping season, and I think it gets crazier every year. Now, maybe it hasn't been crazy where OP lives, so he thought he could bring his kid without incident. Maybe there was nobody else to watch the kid. Even if he maybe shouldn't have brought the kid, that does not give anyone the right to hit someone else's child hard enough to give her a concussion over a freaking Xbox. Jeez Louise!
