A 34-year-old worker at a Wal-Mart in Long Island New York was trampled to death by a stampede of people rushing into the store to shop.  Several other employees jumped on top of vending machines to avoid the mob of people.

“He was bum-rushed by 200 people,” said Jimmy Overby, 43, a co-worker. “They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me. They took me down too…I literally had to fight people off my back.”

What the hell is going on here.  One day we are supposed to be giving thanks for all the we have and the next day people are supposed to go out at the crack of dawn and literally kill each other to buy more crap that they don’t need!?  But hey, you saved a whole six dollars on that Xbox game for little Timmy so I guess it was all worth it.  Bastards.


  1. I’m guessing that since it was a Wal-Mart that this took place at, the people rushing in all weighed in at about 300-400 lbs., thus contributing to his hasty demise. Poor guy never stood a chance.

  2. Hahaha. Erin, I am sure you are probably right.

  3. Doesn’t Wal-Mart sell guns? I’m thinking a couple of warning shots in the air would have stopped the stampeding mob pretty quick…
