What does 'The red mist descended' mean?
I read an article about a violent mass brawl in the middle of a shopping mall on Black Friday.
The article says, "The red mist descended on Black Friday at the Modesto Mall in California, as shocking footage shows a violent punch up between a gang of men."
Q. What does 'The red mist descended' mean?
And another sentence reads, "Earlier today, a mob was filmed scrambling for cheap toilet paper at a supermarket in South Africa, as Black Friday madness descends on a South African shopping mall."
Q. What does 'madness descends' here mean? Does it just mean the madness of people is slowly stopped?
