Trampled by the herd

Would you kill someone to get a bargain?

Apparently a bunch of Wal-Mart shoppers in Long Island were willing to do just that. They trampled a 34-year-old temp as he unlocked the doors to let in a ravening horde of bargain-hunters who had lined up the night before for a wee-hours opening.

They didn't do it with intent, but they sure didn't seem to care what got in their way. And, after the death was announced and the store was closed down, they basically said, "Screw you. We came to shop." And kept right on going.

A guy died so that people could get a few bucks off on Christmas presents? Wow. That's in keeping with the spirit of the season.
