    Yea I heard about it shortly after it happened. Only a few of the couple hundred people who were there at the time actually stopped to see how the people were doing.

    I really do not think this would have happened if the economy wasn't so fucked.

    Wow, just wow. You think people who would not care about trampling a man to death would just steal shit instead of waiting in line to buy it.

    I seriously can't believe this. I hope every single one of the people who ran into that store feel guilty, because each one of them contributed to his death. I am just... wow. Just to save a few dollars. Wow.

    and the customers kept on shopping even though they knew they just killed someone.

    credit crunch.... customers not spending.... yeah right.

    edit: people are starving in africa, palestenians being tortured and innocent people dying in iraq/india/afghanistan.

    my faith in humanity was lost a long time ago.

    the wal mart incident will pretty much reinforce the stereotype that most americans just don't care about other people.

    That's just ridiculous. I can't believe some people can be so cold and heartless.

    What a coincidence, I was watching Jingle All The Way earlier today.

    Black Friday really makes people hungry for X-Mas shopping.

    I've long lost faith in humanity...

    It's sad really when laughs and bargains are more important than the feelings and the health of other human beings.

    This makes me want to do horrible things to myself with a razor. And I'm not even an emo! I won't though. I just want to vomit at how villainous and selfish the human race can be. When I heard this story, I literally banged my head against the wall. Sorry, but I'm feeling so hateful towards these selfish rampaging consumers right now. Every one of these people should be arrested and executed.

    What the fuck. Those people are fucked up in the head. I thought that at least when you know you're stepping on someone, you'd stop to help that person out and apologize. Those people are just retarded. I hope they feel guilty for the rest of their lives.

    Edit; To piss the fuck out of the customers that didn't listen, they should've closed all the cashier lanes. There's no way to pay for it that way that way. They can always close the doors shut and not let anyone out so they could've prevented shoplifting. Just let the customers out slowly.

    There was also a pregnant woman who miscarried as a result of the crush. Really sickening. This happens more often than you think though.

    Everyone in that damn Wal incident would get hung up by a group of Islanders. AND FEEL THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE GBA SLOT.

    Yeah I allways try not to go anywhere near crowds of ppl

    I as well cannot understand how it is even possible to do something like this [​IMG] I allways life (which is mostly a bad thing) like the saying "behandle andere wie du selbst behandelt weden willst" which means very free translated "be nice to others so that they are nice to you as well"

    Well I hope people learn from this ! and with this i am not sugesting the shops taking better security measurments but the people starting to think before doing

    I have to agree. And I AM an American. It makes me ashamed of being one.
