Who coined black Friday?

This term was coined by police officers in Philadelphia who could not take the day off and had to work long shifts the day after thanksgiving. Large crowds came to town on that day and created traffic jams and shoplifting chances. The term was used sarcastically by the police but became widespread eventually.
