Wal-Mart Employee Killed By Shoppers

Black Friday took a grim turn when a New York Wal-Mart employee died after bargain hunters broke down the doors to the store, pushing him to the ground. The 34-year-old male employee was pronounced dead an hour after shoppers breached the doors to the shopping center in Valley Stream, Long Island, about 5 a.m. Friday and knocked him down, police said.  It is absolutely shocking that a group of shoppers would be so worked up to get into a store to buy stuff that they would trample to death another human being.  Furthermore, it is disturbing that Wal-Mart failed to provide adequate security (including the hiring of off-duty police) to ensure that the crowd did not get out of control.
