I am DISGUSTED by a news event I heard about today. People were waiting in a Wal-Mart for a 6AM sale to start. A woman was at the front of the line for a $29 DVD player. When the alarm sounded that the sale had begun, the TRAMPLED this woman in front! What is DESPICABLE to me is that almost everyone just TRAMPLED her. Maybe 2-3 people stopped to help....everyone else just trampled over her "like a herd of elephants." The paramedics found her on the ground with people STANDING on her, & she had had a seizure after hitting her head from being knocked down.

You have GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!! Trampled a human being? Didn't stop to help her? For a $29 DVD player!?! Where is the humanity? Where is the compassion? I sit here unable to even believe this story...and terribly sad that it's true. Terribly sad with the state of humans, me, me. I hope those people that didn't bother to help this poor woman have trouble sleeping at the least.

Wal-Mart offered to put a DVD on hold for her....sheesh, how about GIVING her the damn thing? I understand the store didn't make those people trample her, but come have to have SOME sort of control over your store so that stuff like this doesn't happen.

ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!!!!!!!! What is WRONG with people today????
