8. that would be even worse
because the crush was caused by the people from the back of the line shoving the people in front of them. If you installed a turnstile you'd have people shoving other people into a big metal turnstile, which would be more likely to cause injury.

What they should have done is roped off the lines at every 25 people or so - like they do with protestors - and gradually moved the bunches of people up. You have to treat these people like cattle and herd them slowly and in an organized way. It CAN'T be a free for all.

They should also inform people in line of how much stock they have of each sale item - they can do it. I knew the day before how many sale items of things we had. It would encourage people who were only there for one or two items to leave and not waste their time on line.
