    I hope the $200 they saved on their TV was worth his life.

    Posted by Faos in the black friday thread, although it deserves its own thread.

    Apparently a woman miscarried at the same Wal-Mart from getting stomped on too. :(

    Long Island and Wal Mart. I don't think this happens in a small town; or at a Neiman Marcus, Macy's or Nordstrom's.

    The employee's family should have a pretty good lawsuit against Wal-Mart for creating an unsafe work environment. This is just disgusting that people act like animals to save a little money.

    I have a feeling there walmart will have some police officers guarding the doors next year. F'ing sad to see something so trivial cost a person their life.

    This should be on video. The police should arrest every single person that trampled on the guy, or at least the initial tramplers.

    Unfortunately they would have just been trampled over too, if they tried to help him. I've never experience mass hysteria like this on Black Friday, but it seems like Wal-Mart has the worst of it every year. They make it a free4all, instead of just setting up lines and passing out tickets to people in line like they do at the stores that I have gone to in the past. I think it would alleviate some of this.

    I feel bad for the guy, but I wish he had been wiser. I mean I have been to one black friday before and that is just madness. You don't try to stop a mob.

    This made me laugh but it was followed by a noticable sigh when I realized it probably was happening.
