It happend in my home town of Ny this past friday. I don't know the full details of the story, but an employee at walmart went to open the doors for the millions of customers that were standing outside, and when they pushed through he fell to the floor and they stampeded over him like a buch of animals. and from what I hear onthe news report, when the store anounced it was closing due to an employee death the customers got angry. What a bunch of unthoughtfull motherf#ckers! The cops are reviewing the tape trying to get get the shoppers that were responible for this guys death. I hope they do catch every single one of those bumbs and they all get executed! This is the exact reason I don't go shopping on black friday. All the stupis a$$holes are crowded into one store like a pack of wild jacka$$es! These people had no compassion or sympathy for an employee that was lying on the ground getting run over. All these loosers cared about was rushing into the store and getting something on sale. A pregnant women was also hurt in this incident. I don't intend to sound mean, but she should have known better than to be anywhere near a crownd of idiots like that. My mother told me last year some lady got hit in the head by another customer because she purchased the last TV. I hope if they continue this stupid black fiday nonsense that they beef up security. There should be a ton of cops on patrol and the orders from the stor managers should be shoot to kill. Maybe that will keep all of the raging morons from charging into the stores like a bunch of wild idiots! It sickens me to hear that the customers were angry about the store closing. I hope everyone that was there gets stamped themselves so they can get a taste of what it feels like. I mean seriously, is it that d#amn imortant to rush through the doors and cause harm to someone just to save a few dollars? I hope from now on they send the employees to open the doors with a shotgun in their hands! Maybe that will keep all those stupid motherf#ckers from acting like animals!

Someone posted a discussion about this the other day. WE have been pretty heated about the incident in fact. They will probably start hitting you up now too. We have been reading the Daily News article(I to am from New York) and found the whole event to be very disturbing. I really wonder who was more to blame here, the greedy patrons of the store or the Walmart management for not organizing this better. We were dealing with a mob mentality. People are labeling it a full out riot! http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1812396.aspx This is also a link to that discussion. There is a link to the full article, photos of the riot in progress, and stunning video of paramedics trying to revive the man while people laughed around him. Happy Holidays right?

And I also hear the pregnant woman suffered a miscarriage, and another customer had a heart attack.

You got the gist of the story but there were about 2000 people outside that store when they opened the doors at 5am. Reports from witnesses say about 200 or so people were responsible for the stampede but it isn't the guy up front that's pushing, it's the guys ten,twenty and thirty people back. Take a look at the article though.

This whole incident took place at he green acres mall from what I hear. about 10-15min from me. Thamks for the info on the story. I think it's very sad. I saw a news report outside of another walmart somewhere and the parking lot looked like a melee. My first thought was that there ain't no way I'm going outside near any malls. I think they need to canclel the whole black friday thing. This isn't the 1st time an incident had happende. Maybe the 1st that we've heard were someone's life was taken. I don't think there is enough security to control all of those people. To hear that the shoppers were angry after the store announced it was closing is what pisses me off the most. They should have pulled out the water hose and spryed those jerks down! I will check out that link. Thanks
