Homicide by Materialism

In one of the most disturbing and twisted stories of the Christmas season, a man was killed on Black Friday at a Wal-Mart in Valley Stream, New York.

There was a crowd of about 2,000 waiting to get in at 5 a.m. As the worker,
Jdimytai Damour, was unlocking the door the crowd pushed its way in literally ripping the doors off the hinges. He was knocked to the ground and then trampled to death. One witness had the following to say, "shoppers were acting like 'savages' and when they (Wal-Mart management) were saying they had to leave, that an employee got killed, people were yelling `I've been on line since yesterday morning,'...they kept shopping."

A very sad commentary on the rampant materialism in our culture when a man's life is less important than things like a
Samsung 50-inch Plasma HDTV for $798, a Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum for $28, and a Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera for $69.

I guess we can call it Homicide by materialism...unbelievable and very sad.
