The Ugly Side of Consumerism: Wal-Mart employee trampled to death on Black Friday



Seriously, has it come to this? Doors taken off hinges? Pregnant customers injured and the sad, senseless murder of a 34-year old employee?

Sorry to depress you but I am appalled by such little regard for human life. A sale on clothing, TV's and exercise equipment is never worth someone's life or your own safety. Our prayers go out to his family.


Glamazons, be careful and exercise caution (meaning walk away from a stampede) when shopping, especially during the holidays.



Shocked and saddened,


Coutura

Yes I heard this and it is soooo sad. I'm surprised it isn't getting more press. People were complaining because they shut down the store after he died....wow. Just so cruel! I pray for his family......
