Where Are You Most Likely to Encounter Fights on Black Friday?

According to Estately if you live in one of the states below you may want to be be careful or avoid black friday altogether. The website determined where people are most likely to be participating in Black Friday sales and where people are most prone to violently attacking each other.

  2. Frequency of aggravated assaults (attempts to cause seriously bodily injury purposely) — (source: FBI Uniform Crime Reports—2014)

"Enthusiasm for abandoning one’s family to participate in premature shopping is not a universal interest in America. According to Facebook user data, fewer than 2% of users express any interest in Black Friday sales in California and Hawaii, while over 10% of users in West Virginia and Kentucky do."

So which states are the most violent? That varies widely as well. Tennessee was reported to have the highest rate of aggravated assaults (453.2 incidents per 100,000 people), while Maine had the fewest (66.9 incidents per 100,000 people). What do you think? Leave a comment below.
