ASS-HAT-TERY was reportedly at Def Con Level 5 on Black Friday. Did anyone else hear about this lunacy? There was actually a death at a Wal-Mart on Friday - Jdimytai Damour, a Wal-Mart employee, was TRAMPLED TO DEATH by early morning shoppers at a New York Wal-Mart [Website – Amy Grindhouse]!
Were the crazy ass bitch shoppers really that desperate to get their bulk supply of toilet tissue at a discount that they would actually trample someone to death? What kind of fuckery is that? I am excited by half-off milk and cookies and what-not, but I’m not stepping on another person to get it!
According to The New York Times:
The throng of Wal-Mart shoppers had been building all night, filling sidewalks and stretching across a vast parking lot at the Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, N.Y. At 3:30 a.m., the Nassau County police had to be called in for crowd control, and an officer with a bullhorn pleaded for order.
Tension grew as the 5 a.m. opening neared. Someone taped up a crude poster: “Blitz Line Starts Here.”
By 4:55, with no police officers in sight, the crowd of more than 2,000 had become a rabble, and could be held back no longer. Fists banged and shoulders pressed on the sliding-glass double doors, which bowed in with the weight of the assault. Six to 10 workers inside tried to push back, but it was hopeless.
Suddenly, witnesses and the police said, the doors shattered, and the shrieking mob surged through in a blind rush for holiday bargains. One worker, Jdimytai Damour, 34, was thrown back onto the black linoleum tiles and trampled in the stampede that streamed over and around him. Others who had stood alongside Mr. Damour trying to hold the doors were also hurled back and run over, witnesses said. (more)
My condolences to the family of Jdimytai Damour – R.I.P.
