Default Tragedy at Walmart

I'm all for saving money as much as the next guy, but the thought of shoppers trampling a person to death and injuring many more to get to their precious things makes me sick.

If only people cared so much for each other as they care about saving $100 on a TV.

Tragic. I have never attended at bargain basement day, thankfully.

sales are crazy. just a question, though. if a person is in a crowd like that, how can they stop? they can't just stop or they will get bowled over and trampled as well. i'm betting a lot of people didn't even see him until they were right near him & couldn't stop moving if they wanted to because they were being shoved from behind. :( that's just my thoughts on this.

exactly

I remember when Toys R Us opened in Mississippi and they were having a big sale, and we didn't have a Toys R Us in that area so everybody was lining up. People got trampled, people were fighting over certain things, it was a catastrophe, but this is really horrible.

I don't even like Wal Mart. Every person I run into there is a jackass. No offense if you shop at Wal Mart, I'm just saying...
