Wal-mart Employee Killed Due to Black Friday Shoppers

In an earlier post I mentioned missing Black Friday. Now I am glad I did. I don't honestly know what has gotten over some idiotic people, but this really takes the cake. A man was trampled to death after insane shoppers couldn't wait anymore for Wal-mart's black Friday specials, according to a New York Times Article,

What's even worse is that the article quoted: “When they were saying they had to leave, that an employee got killed, people were yelling, ‘I’ve been on line since yesterday morning,’ ” Ms. Cribbs told The Associated Press. “They kept shopping.”

My question is why? I mean I love bargains as much as the next person, but this is just beyond words.
