This crap's been going on forever. My wife remembers fistfights in the early eighties over Cabbage Patch dolls. Peace on Earth, Goodwill to mankind and get the &%#@ out of my way.

People are disturbed. What were the people thinking as they trampled over his body?? Every single person that was involved in the stampede should be charged with manslaughter!!

"At least four other people, including a woman eight months pregnant, were taken to hospitals for observation or minor injuries"

Sick, plain sick!

It's Wal Mart.... ::)

Just like how every year numerous murders, rapes, and abductions happen in their parking lots and they still do nothing but have cameras.

I will view the video later after the LSU-Ark-Ansas game.

I heard about it on the radio this AM heading out to BPS with my wife.

Around these parts we have 24-hour Wal-Marts so we did not have any problems, especially with all the county and city police at the stores today.

Wal-Mart has to change their SOP for Black Fridays.  

Wal-Mart's workers' compensation will take care of the funeral, loss of income, etc.,but I think Wal-Mart is culpable and should be charged in the case.

Stay tuned, this is a future Law and Order show.  :(

Wal-Mart is definitely at fault here.  What a terrible story and situation.  The workers should have planned on a holiday rush and had a game plan prepared to keep the flow of traffic going smoothly throughout the morning.  It is very tragic that someone had to die for workers to find this out.

so wal-mart is at fault for the [criminal] actions of the public? What a load of crap. People have to be responsible for themselves... they should have locked the doors once this happened and arrsted everyone involved.

It's not always possible to plan for other people's stupidity... if planning were so easy, there would be world peace and everyone would like thier in-laws. :P

agree totally.  not wal-mart's fault.  i guarantee ya that anyone who would gripe at wal-mart for stuff like this would gripe twice as loud and long if they raised their prices to pay for extra security measures.

BULL PUKKY!  Wal-Mart IS at fault!  That store should have been prepared for the Yahoos that it attracts.  Limited entry is a very simple thing to do, but that particular store manager apparently decided to just throw the doors wide open and let chaos occur.

"NEW YORK A Wal-Mart worker was killed Friday when "out-of-control" shoppers desperate for bargains broke down the doors at a 5 a.m. sale. Other workers were trampled as they tried to rescue the man, and customers shouted angrily and kept shopping when store officials said they were closing because of the death, police and witnesses said."

B.S this is NOT Walmarts fault. People need to take responsibility for acting like Wildebeest spooked by a lion.

Like L.A. should have been ready for the riots.  Come on Mike, that's about as logical as saying GM is at fault for drunk drivers.

I'm going to agree with Flech on this one.  People have to take responsibility for themselves.  I'm tired of Arms Manufacturers getting sued because somebody gets shot, or McDonald's gets sued because some idiot doesn't know that coffee is hot.

I work for Wal-Mart. We stay open 24/7. If we would have closed people would gripe. If we run out of the most popular item of the year , then people gripe. The criminals are becoming more elaborate every day. Before people start bashing Wal-mart, they should work there awhile.

Hey Fletchero; Wal Mart does share part of the blame. By closing thier 24 hour outlets, like they do at all 3 supercents within a 30 minute drive from my home. They they start in 2 hour intervals , begining at 5:00am putting majorly dicounted products on sale, THROUGH ONE SMALL ENTRANCE ( not angy , caps are to emphaize) Our zoing here requires all 4 entances to be open. They understock on purpose, having similar items, at close but not the smae discount , that they make a better margin of profit on/.

So by closing and reopening, shuffuling customes through one small entrance, for proscts the customes know are understocked would lead me to come to the conclusion theat Wal Mart bears some of the responsibility here.

I have and I supervise 2 of their managers , who also work for me at my place of business. I KNOW THEIR PRACTICES FIRST HAND< All 3 su[ercenters, St.Clair, Hometown and Hazleton close their doors for a short, but effective time and reopen just the grocery doors at 5AM. I have witnessed this for the last 6 years

Example; They put up HP PC's ith monitor and free printer, Windowsxp installed for 379. !% at each location. They saturated every local newspaper with this in thier Black Friday Flyer. The pile next to them was their house brand emachines, same bundle for 429, that is not quite bait and switch, but close enough.

explain to me how having 30 tv's on sale cheap wont create a "mob scene" when you have 300 ppl chomping at the bit. i dont see anyone saying whoever did the clown stomping should get a trophy, just an honorable statement on common sense.

these sales are built up on tv then its a rats race to the finish. enless the store has unlimited goods there should be a system in place to make sure everyone is safe.

common sense says you dont stomp another human to death. common sense should also say you dont create a system where a human can be stomped to death.

Thats exactly how I see it, well said. Their is culpability on both sides' You know the tails side of a quarter is worth 25 cents and the heads side is worth 25 cents, just like both sides of this ugly coin!
