My dad used to say it was the same type of chaos at Gimbel's in Milwaukee when there was a sale on housecoats about 50 years ago.

I'd say Excessive Greed and a case of Assholio.

Maybe we can federalize Black Friday security and get the Dept of Homeland Security to professionalize, by federalizing, thousands of otherwise unemployable people on the taxpayer dime.

I heard it was because of all the $300 laptops they were selling cheap.

"They didn't have no security at all," said McHerron's sister, Sierra.

If people behaved themselves there wouldn't be any need for security. Sheesh.

"Wal-Mart did not do enough to protect us," Dietstra said.

How about taking responsibility for your OWN actions, honey? It is not Wal-Mart's "responsibility" to keep its customers from behaving like a bunch of in-bred savages.

I guess civil decorm is now no longer expected. People are now just naturally idiots and it is now the responsibility of others to control them...or as they use the term...." provide security"...

Security from what? How can you secure a public that has no sense of decency? When did it become nessesary for stores to provide security for shoppers to keep them from hurting each other. Usually it is to prevent shoplifting or other crimes. Just another low in American history.

Of course. It wouldnt do any good to sue the greedy animals that knocked them down, so there has to be some way to blame the store. Disgusting.

I don't believe in evolution, but people who go shopping at 5 in the morning the day after Thanksgiving are the best argument I've heard for proof of a "missing link".

Greed is the cause.

And a nationwide retailer orgy chock full of bait and switch adverising that could be done at any time of year.

There'll be a similar story from Los Altos, CA in tomorrow's papers too. jiggygirl reports that a lady got trampled and had to be taken out in an ambulance, others in another part of the store were taken out in handcuffs, people were jumping over counters to get to merchandise, etc. At one point there were at least 15 additional city police in the place trying to restore order, clean up the bloody people, etc.

that is why I live on the coast. Spend a little more, make a little less, avoid the savages of the cities.

It looked like some scenes straight out of the Lower Ninth in New Orleans. Probably some of the same players.

The 'Lady' with the wig is setting herself up for some kind of suit. No matter she was there on her own accord, obviously obese and unable to cope with the situation and placed herself in harms way. I say give her a TV set and good riddance.
