68. No. I'm not Superman
But what the hell were the idiots all doing there to begin with? Maybe none of them knew there would be a mad, dangerous rush into the store and people could get hurt? Walmart certainly has not met it's responsibility here, I'm not denying that at all. Neither, however, have these people met what should be their own sense of responsibility.

Rushing Walmart on Black Friday to get the latest little toy (whatever it may be) en masse and disregarding any potential consequences. I am saying that, collectively, it is not only Walmart's greed, but their own greed, that made this a disaster. Had they been willing to restrain themselves and act as civilized human beings, none of this would have happened to begin with.

Of course, in that case, maybe they wouldn't have gotten that super special toy. What a damn shame for them. But that man would still be alive.
