[QUOTE=nickyboy4;2165572]Sorry to report that the walmart in Valley Steam, NY had the crowd break down the doors at 5am and trample an employee. The animals continued to shop in a frenzy even while police tried to administer 1st aid, they were pushed about. The store had to be closed. The poor person ended up dead.
All over some black friday sales.
Mob mentality like when a soccer riot breaks. I canNOT believe there was an actual fatality … over a Black Friday sale of all things. Was saving the $/% really worth taking someone’s / some dad’s / some husband’s / some friend’s life?
Since I highly doubt the Black Friday frenzies will ever loose popularity or hype, I hope the participating retailers at least take better precautions for this type of thing either happening directly to their employees or to the hordes of people stamping thru their stores.
Truly a very terrible shame.
The stories I read recounted how the throngs of people just kept pushing thru past the down person. With all due respect to current dire situations many families are in, I won’t comment that saving money isn’t any less important. But, this was such a terrible way to leave this world.
Though it may have been a Black Friday for those few that made it to their targetted items on time …
… it truly was a [B][I]BLACK[/I][/B] Friday for the family of the deceased.
