Awful.

... A 34-year-old WalMart employee was trying to hold back the crowds at a Long Island store this morning at 5am, when they took the doors off their hinges and stormed the store. The man fell down and was trampled by over 200 people as he gasped for air. It's sad and despicable, and it's equally the fault of the dehumanized shoppers and the WalMart store it happened at.

Why was there no line set up? Why didn't they let in a reasonable amount of people at a time? What kind of method is it to just allow hundreds of people to cram up against the doors, waiting for them to open?

....

Can you imagine if, say, the Apple store did this when the iPhone was launched?

While nations around the world are fighting for basic human rights, American consumers are killing each other to buy the latest crap from China. Two men also shot - and killed - each other in a Toys "R" Us the same day: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/11/28/socal-toys-r-us-shooting_n_147032.html

 

I would like to join the haters club also.

so sad.  More blame goes with the lame people than with Walmart.  What the hell were they thinking?
