About That Deadly Wal-Mart Mob

The BBC reports:
A shop worker has died after being knocked to the ground by bargain-hunters who stormed into a superstore in New York's suburbs as it opened.

The 34-year-old man, along with several other workers and shoppers, was trampled in the rush at the Wal-Mart store in Valley Stream, Long Island.

US stores opened early and offered steep discounts on Friday.

The day after the Thanksgiving holiday is seen as the start of the Christmas shopping season.

I feel sorry for the guy who was killed because he was just doing his job. It's too bad it wasn't one of the crazed consumers who suffered such a fate. Seriously, what kind of psychos are willing to wait in line all night in front of a Wal-Mart of all places? It's just disgusting.
