A worker died and at least three people were injured after being trampled by a crowd of shoppers at a Wal-Mart in the New York suburbs.
The day after the Thanksgiving holiday is viewed as an important test of how willing consumers are to spend.
Police said a throng of shoppers broke down the doors to the Wal-Mart store in Valley Stream, Long Island shortly after 5am, knocking the 34-year-old worker to the ground.
JESUS TAP-DANCING CHRIST, PEOPLE! Is shopping that important to you that you actually have to kill someone to get to the bargains first? I saw people camping out last night in the cold so they could be the first ones in the stores this morning, but to actually kill someone??!?!
