BULK OF PAIN: Mississauga Costco shoppers brawl over parking spot

StaffRebel Columnist

In a video that you have to see to believe, Costco shoppers in Mississauga engaged in an out-of-control melee over a parking spot on Saturday.

Things get heated shortly after a verbal confrontation with one angry customers shoving a female to the ground. That's when an older man steps in and clobbers the woman-shover.

Costco is known to be very busy on weekends with its wonderful deals on bulk products, but this was just insanity.

Police say charges aren't being pressed.

“We look at the whole picture, not just one aspect of an incident,” Const. George Tudos with Peel Regional Police told Global News.

What's the most outrageous think you've ever seen in a parking lot?

When I have to park at a mall, or any place that’s busy, I always park as far away as possible. My kids used to get mad at me, and I’d tell them that they needed the exercise. Now I can show them this clip, on parking lot rage, which is another good reason to park further away, and get some exercise at the same time!

Yeah, obviously the ‘parking spot’ was just a trigger for the real emotions of these people. ‘The Costco Parking Lot Incident’ merely triggered, or released the pent-up, repressed and denied emotions of fear, anger, frustration and even rage. All these emotions the result of the confusion between their robot-programming, indoctrination and the real world descending upon their delusional lefty world. Cognitive dissonance manifesting itself…and it is ugly, and it can only get worse…

From what I saw: two couples arguing over a parking spot. A woman in a red top from the gold van swearing up a storm. From the screaming, it sounded that her van was waiting for a spot. Some drivers park at one end of the lane and expect that any space that becomes available is theirs, even if the space is twenty-five cars away. It seems that this is what happened.

She swore up a storm at everyone. That should have been the end of it.

The driver from the blue van walked away. Some one even told the woman in red to let it go.

Next shot: woman in red is now at the parked blue van again screaming up a storm. Something happens. By going frame by frame, she is against the blue van and puts her hands on the woman in the black and white horizontal striped top. The blue van’s driver then takes her and pushed her away. She trips and falls. Then her husband, who should have taken her away, starts throwing punches.

By coming over to the parked blue van and being abusive, aggressive, threatening, and physical, the woman brought it on herself. The police should have arrested the two from the gold van. I suppose the police considered it mutual combat.

The best thing is always to let it go and know when to shut up and just stew a while. Someone is always leaving a parking space every minute or so. Not worth a fight.

Hmm… a woman and a visible minority. Wonder how that will play out in lefty-dom? My guess is that woman-hood trumps male minority-hood. To be expected in a nation that has become completely materialistic. When life consists in the abundance of your Chinese-made possessions the nearest parking spot to your idol is critical.

This will be commonplace in Canada in about five years.

Hope you’re all ready.

Bravo Zulu – the experience won’t be complete without the sound!

But, did anyone notice anything about the protagonists?

You mean the semi-black guy knocking the white woman down?

He chased her down to do that from what I saw.

I am not afraid to say it.

It happened and now that I have told the truth as I saw it – no sound as I am at work, do I get into trouble?

The shrieking woman who ended up on her ass is the one who wouldn’t let it go. Legally she might win but pragmatically and morally she fanned the whole episode. Feel sorry for her poor hubby who has to hear that every day of his life ;)

The GTA, the center of the Liberal universe, not surprising.

Was this a Jerry Springer audition?

In the US, they’d use guns and we would have two less assholes in this world. In Canada, these two assholes get to live and do it again.

I know our Costco is very busy from opening to close. Great business model. Don’t know why no one has copied it.

All of this over a parking spot?

This is why I go shopping early in the morning. Those who want to run you over don’t go shopping until closer to lunch time.

THAT is not assault, but “offending” feminists on Twitter is.
