NEW YORK – A Wal-Mart worker was killed Friday when "out-of-control" shoppers desperate for bargains broke down the doors at a 5 a.m. sale. Other workers were trampled as they tried to rescue the man, and customers shouted angrily and kept shopping when store officials said they were closing because of the death, police and witnesses said.

At least four other people, including a woman who was eight months pregnant, were taken to hospitals for observation or minor injuries, and the store in Valley Stream on Long Island closed for several hours before reopening.

Shoppers stepped over the man on the ground and streamed into the store. When told to leave, they complained that they had been in line since Thursday morning.

Nassau police said about 2,000 people were gathered outside the store doors at the mall about 20 miles east of Manhattan. The impatient crowd knocked the man, identified by police as Jdimytai Damour of Queens, to the ground as he opened the doors, leaving a metal portion of the frame crumpled like an accordion.

"This crowd was out of control," said Nassau police spokesman Lt. Michael Fleming. He described the scene as "utter chaos."

Dozens of store employees trying to fight their way out to help Damour were also getting trampled by the crowd, Fleming said.

SICK AND SAD, BUT YES... THIS IS WHAT MUCH OF THE WORLD HAS COME TO.

JUST A GLIMPSE.

:(

A FRIEND OF MINE. MEMBER.

HE JUST GOT A NEW JOB A FEW WEEKS AGO. NOW HE IS A CHRISTIAN MAN. NOT FUNDAMENTALIST, BUT LIKE ME.

NOW HE WAS BEING NICE AND POLITE TO PEOPLE, NOT BECAUSE HE WAS NEW. BECAUSE, THAT IS WHAT YOU DO. THIS MEANS ALL OF THEM INCLUDING THE HOUSECLEANING AND JANITORIAL STAFF. WELL, ABOUT A WEEK INTO HIS JOB HIS BOSS SAYS, "I NOTICE YOU GET ALONG VERY WELL WITH HOUSE KEEPING AND THE JANITORS HERE."

THEN CONTINUING... "THAT'S RATHER SMART OF YOU. THEY JUST DO EVERY LITTLE THING YOU ASK."

MY FRIEND WAS SHOCKED TO HEAR THIS. THEN HE SAYS TO ME, "HE WAS ACCUSING ME OF BEING MANIPULATIVE."

"IN FACT, HE AUTOMATICALLY, ASSUMED THIS, AS OPPOSED TO ASSUMING I WAS JUST BEING NICE."

NOW THIS IS IN A BUILDING THAT DEALS WITH CARING FOR THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE.

THEN HE CONTINUES AND SAYS... "WHAT KIND OF WORLD DO WE LIVE IN WHEN PEOPLE AUTOMATICALLY ASSUME THAT IF YOU ARE BEING NICE OR YOU ARE POLITE, YOU ARE MANIPULATING THEM FOR SOME REASON OR ANOTHER ???"

"WHY CAN'T YOU JUST BE NICE ?"

JUST A THOUGHT.

MUCH PEACE & LOVE...
