Walmart employee trampled to death

Absolutely phenomenal! Wasn't it on MIB that they said: a person is intelligent, but people are stupid. I think every single person there should have to be interviewed and (s)he needs to accept his/her own part responsibility in this terrible event.

Can you imagine how FEEL to be *the one* who had to open that door?? Our news said the crowd was pushy, impatient, and hostile.
No way would you catch me out on Black Friday! I find as many 'deals' online! (and it's delivered to my door!)
How sad for his family. May he RIP.

That is embarrassing. I hope those who broke in remember this for years to come. All savages. That's ridiculous.

They've got the security footage and they're reviewing it to find those responsible. Mob mentality; ain't it grand? Ugh.

I went out on Black Friday this year; first time ever. I did get a good bit of the shopping done and saved about $100, but it wasn't worth it. What a freaking mind-blowing mad house. And I live in a very tiny little town. I can't imagine going shopping in a big town or city.

And then after dealing with all that, I get to work in a very foul mood to find out that if you buy it on line at WM dot com you get the same price and can pick it up at the store later when the mob is gone. Argh!!! I wish I'd known that before the alarm went off at 3:30!!!

Next year I won't be participating in the madhouse. At least now I can say I've done it and hated it and won't do it again.

At least be thankful you didn't get hurt.

I haven't heard anymore about the pregnant lady who was 8 months along
just on the first news reports that she was being kept for observation.

We were watching the news after that happened and they said that they evacuated the store AFTER the people got to buy their stuff. How disgusting and incredibly greedy of them to have people buy their stuff and then get them out after they just trampled a guy to death.

I hate all this conspicuous consumption.
