I agree this is very sad.

According to CNN.com there were also 2 people shot to death at a Wal Mart in California .

To prevent this kind of tragedy, Best Buy was letting people in the store 25 at a time. That was a smart move and I think all of the stores should follow suit.

I think it was last year that the Kmart by me was doing something similar. They only were going to get so many Wii's in and to avoid a rush of people they started giving out tickets a day earlier. If you didn't have a ticket you didn't get a Wii. That way they wouldn't be on display and people crush each other trying to grab them. If you had a ticket you could show up anytime and go to the customer service desk, present it and walk out with your Wii.

I read in my local paper this morning about the Wal-mart employee getting trampled to death. It's absolutely sickening.

What in the heck could any store, let alone WAL-MART, have on sale that warrants trampling someone to DEATH.

I cannot understand it.

Seriously...if anyone is thinking of getting me a present and they need to trample someone to death to save on the cost of it...JUST DON'T BUY IT FOR ME.
