The reports about the poor guy who got trampled to death at a NYC Wal-Mart on Black Friday gave me the creeps.
That an out of control mob could be so enamored by cheap toys as to step on and over another human being is disturbing and reprehensible. That it happens rarely is about the only good thing one can say about it. Do you think anyone in that crowd feels guilty, or do they tell themselves that it’s someone else’s fault?
In some countries mob scenes like this might occur around a UNICEF food drop. Over here they occur around a 2-for-1 sale.
Ewww. Sometimes we humans are just ugly.
