Post Black Friday • Posted: Fri Nov 28, 2008 12:00 pm
Wal-Mart worker dead

Wow... Now of course this isn't all that unheard of... is it? I wouldn't know seeing as I'm from Canada and at least this County doesn't have Black Friday sales >_>.

My only comment outside of a general 'wow' is almost a humourous one, seeing as this only supports how unruly and blatantly stupid people can be to have something go as far as this all because of shopping.

Discuss.

I usually avoid Wal-Mart like the plague. This news only worsens the store's image.

This is crazy! If people can become excited enough to break into stores en mass like that then think about what it could be like if people got that excited about doing good. I'm not saying that this is a good thing that this happend or that it isn't terrible but still...

My morals are intact.

Tch. People these days. Weren't there any security guard people to restrain the crowd from going all bloody murder? This kind of stuff shouldn't happen.

Wal-Mart has a thing for trying to hire the least amount of people possible, and it seems that each time that I hear about the store the madder it makes me. Its like, yeah, I'd expected someone to get hurt, but...murdered? People care so much about those darn deals that they can't think?! The outrage! How is a few dollars off something worth injuring or killing someone? I'd have thought that human life was worth more than that $500 Sony TV they walked out with. -_-

Frankly I never understood why a Black Friday is needed at all. If people are going to buy something for a gift, they are going to pay whatever for it. You don't need a whole day of insanity.

I'm surprised no one even noticed they were stepping on someone. That or they didn't even care.

Its the will of the mob. They become their own being or creature, people don't like standing apart from the crowd because if they did they would get injured or killed...accept if everyone did it, of course.

This is garbage; never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups, I guess.
