That being said, I'm sure everyone has heard about the tragedy at a Wal-Mart in New York. If you haven't, an employee was TRAMPLED by black Friday shoppers who mobbed the front door:
"The New York Times reports that at about 4:55 am on Friday, a crowd of more than 2,000 who had come out for holiday deals forced their way into the Valley Stream, NY store. The six or so workers manning the front could not hold the unruly crowd back. Witnesses said the doors shattered and 'the shrieking mob surged through in a blind rush for holiday bargains. and Jdimytai Damour was 'thrown back onto the black linoleum tiles and trampled in the stampede that streamed over and around him.'"
My first though when I read this story is that every one of those people who went as far as breaking the doors and killing a human being should be held accountable. Yes, Wal-Mart should as well, but seriously....How the hell do you not realize you walking on someone??!!!!! And guess what? The police are trying! They're closely looking at the security tapes to identify the faces of the crowd. I'm all for it. No sale is worth becoming a savage. I hope that every time those people watch their oh-so-important hdtv/blue-ray/whathave you that they are forced to remember that there is one family who has lost someone because of a price discount.
Really shows how people have lost the true meaning of Christmas. "Peace, Love, Goodwill to men"
