    Wow, just wow. Welcome to the consumerist nation, where people get angry when asked to stop shopping because someone has died.

    I'm glad you guys can agree with me on this.. Although I am not American myself, it still bothers the heck out of me!

    So one dies, and several others get injured because a couple thousand people want a good deal? Grow up! It's not like good deals won't ever come around again!

    Some one died for NOTHING!

    Hey, they really wanted to save 5 or 10% on their holiday shopping, isn't that worth a human life?? Seems to be to people these days.

    It's a perfect example of mod mentality. One person can be courteous and smart, usually. But a group of are stupid, rude, crazy and dangerous. And this was only over shopping. Imagine what people would be like in a serious situation like a building on fire! It just shows how little we've really come from the apes swinging in the trees.

    Actually, I was going to mention something similar in my original reply. This just lends to the research in social psychology on similar topics (Bystander Apathy, Ache's conformity experiment, Social Identity Theory, Diffusion of Responsibility, etc).

    Do you in the US have 'lolly scrambles' for children? If you want to see kids in training for what happened at the WalMart scene, look no further than a lolly scramble at a school picnic or children's birthday party.

    I saw that. Honestly...HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE?!? How can you not notice you stepped on someone?!? And if you did notice, wouldn't you stop and say "Hey, sorry" or "Whoops" or, heck, "What're you doing down there, idiot?" It literally makes me sick.

    That reminds me of another, completely OT, quote I read somewhere recently:

    "The death of one person is a tragedy, the death of a million people is a statistic."

    As I always say, individuals are smart, people are stupid.

    This has nothing to do with being an American, it has to do with Western Consumerist culture in general and could have easily happened anywhere in the Western World.

    I agree with that. I guess its kinda in-style to hate on America these days but really its not just those "idiot Americans." The rest of the western world is not sooo far and above the knuckle draggers in the states that its impossible for them to be involved in something like this. Your country of origin doesn't really determine your ability to reason, be logical or get sucked into the hysteria of a nationwide day of big sales. I'm not condoning the incident, im just saying anyone could of been part of it, anywhere, its not just because it happened within the imaginary boundaries of the USA.

    You know what....
    I'm going to speak completely off the cuff even if everyone completely disagrees with me.

    I have done A LOT of social research about America and how it has been "Dumbed down" by Television, and how utterly reliant Americans are on television. We as Americans have become nothing short of sheep, mindlessly following whatever the television preaches to us : BUY THIS, BUY THAT, SUPPORT THIS, DON'T SUPPORT THAT.

    All we care about is money and material possessions. People in general are sick, cruel human beings. Yes there are exceptions, but I'm making a generalization. We're hypocrites - we condone Asian countries for eating dogs and cats while we dig into steak and pork. We have become a society wholly dependent upon the all-mighty dollar and the possessions it ensues. This article and event is a great representation of this. No, we don't care about our fellow humans, WE NEED THAT ROLLBACK PRICE! WE NEED THAT POSSESSION, IF WE DON'T GET IT, WE RIOT! Remember the tickle me Elmos? It's utterly pathetic, and downright disgusting. I do NOT celebrate Christmas because it's nothing short of a materialistic holiday. Sorry to you people who celebrate Christmas for the passing of our lord Jesus Christ, but he has been pushed aside for this year's new Tickle me Elmo. Every day I read something that makes me even more disgusted with the human race, and sadly I'm not surprised by this event at Wal-Mart in the least...In fact I EXPECT IT to happen. Call me nuts, a radical, whatever you want to call me. All I know is common decency and respect is a bygone in a sex, money and material-crazed society.
    Look, material possessions are nice...But it's not the world.
    I love my Jaguar,
    my laptop
    and iPod....
    But I would be fine without them. I would live, they're nothing short of material possessions...THERE IS A WHOLE WORLD OUT THERE. WHY DON'T YOU WRITE A POEM TO YOUR LOVED ONES ABOUT HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO YOU...WHY DOES AN XBOX HAVE TO REPRESENT HOW MUCH YOU LOVE SOMEONE.

    WAKE UP PEOPLE.
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

    YouTube - Store Worker Trampled, Dies

    I don't know what is more horrifying. The fact that only a few seemed to care about the guy or that laughter can be heard in the clip. I am so appalled that I can hear laughter in the background around 1:33. Those people laughing are so sick. They didn't help and they even criticized the cops who were actualy trying to save the guy while those people laughed and did nothing to help. If they thought the cops weren't doing a good enough job, then they should have done it themselves. According to Bloomberg, Some people were even asked to leave by store workers and they just continued to shop without any consideration at all. Those miserable brats were more concerned getting a brand new samsung cameras with 1 trillion megapixels and their 100 billion inch lcd tv rather than a life which can't be brought back. Then there are others who decide to go in a shootout at a Toys-R-Us store which was probably filled with kids and even babies. What has this society come to???

    If that's a video of the guy who died, I don't want to see it. Someone videotaping a guy getting stomped to death, posting it on youtube, and people watching it is about as sick as if you had stepped on his head yourself.
