It truly is BLACK friday now!


http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/11/28/national/main4637170.shtml

This nation is sick. This "black Friday" shopping thing is so materialistic and nasty! Look at this horrible tragedy now caused by this cattle like behavior! A worker died after being trampled by a throng of unruly shoppers when a suburban Wal-Mart in Nassau County, N.Y. opened for the holiday sales rush Friday, authorities said. At least three other people were injured. A police statement said shortly after 5 a.m., a throng of shoppers "physically broke down the doors, knocking (the worker) to the ground." Police also said a 28-year-old pregnant woman was taken to a hospital for observation and three other shoppers suffered minor injuries and were also taken to hospitals. And to think all for Christmas gifts???? What would Jesus say about this? I want to cry!

Update on this story:

Police were reviewing video from surveillance cameras in an attempt to identify who trampled to death a Wal-Mart worker after a crowd of post-Thanksgiving shoppers burst through the doors at a suburban store and knocked him down.

Criminal charges were possible, but identifying individual shoppers in Friday's video may prove difficult, said Detective Lt. Michael Fleming, a Nassau County police spokesman.

Other workers were trampled as they tried to rescue the man, and customers stepped over him and became irate when officials said the store was closing because of the death, police and witnesses said.

Yes and it happened right here in NY not in some tiny town in West Virginia but only 20 miles from Manhattan. This disturbs me. To think the other shoppers just wanted to keep shopping is horrible too. Christmas has become an orgy of materialism and has little or nothing to do with Christ's birth.
