Walmart Employee Trampled to Death

Bloomberg.com: Worldwide


kinda disturbing that today people would care more about saving a couple bucks on some shitty chinese products quicker than someone else, rather than the human being they are stepping over to get to it.

I wonder how many walked over or around him while he laid dying on the floor - to get to that dvd or camera. Unconciousable.

Two thousand people outside the store
and the Wal-Mart managers send one person out to open the door.

i never thought i'd hear someone say that. it is unbelievable that it happened. i mean, i'd stop to help the guy but i don't think that makes me some great person, it just makes me a person. i just can't believe the customers did that. and i can't believe the store didn't plan things out better. i mean with that frenzy i don't really know what could have been done, but i don't know.

I thought I heard that the front door(s) had been unhinged prior to the store opening, and that WalMart didn't have proper security on hand. Yes, lawsuit indeed. But watching the story on the news just makes me so mad at human beings for being so awful. Mad & sad How can people be like this? I just don't understand...

^it's all part of the "dumbing down of america". care less about fellow man and more about the shiny things you can buy and all the wonderful shows on TV you can watch and all the cool things you can do with your cell phone

A pregnant woman was in the mob waiting outside. What a sad joke!

Didn't this happen at 5 am?

These people were waiting in line over night in the cold for 10- 12 hours.


Why? To get a $2000. flat panel T V for $500? and the store only had 10 at that price. Also, 10? $1500 laptops for $300 or something. not to mention Wiis and Xboxes.


I am not surprised the crowd was amped up at the 5 am gate opening.
This is set up like a horse race with gun going off and a mad race for limited prizes.


3 people would have been trampled just as easy as one.
