Black Friday Shoppers Ignore Dying Man in Order to Buy TVs

English: DC USA, Target, Black Friday

Rampant consumerism is one thing, but this is ridiculous. From MSNBC:

Family and friends were stunned by the loss of a West Virginia man who died while shopping on Black Friday as fellow bargain hunters reportedly walked around — and even over — the man’s body.

Family members told WSAZ-TV that 61-year-old Walter Vance of Logan County, W. Va., had become ill and collapsed while shopping for Christmas decorations inside Target in South Charleston. He later died after being taken to the hospital, family said.

Witnesses told the NBC News affiliate in Charleston, W. Wa., that shoppers walked around and even over Vance’s body.

I hate to pass judgment on other people, but if you ignore someone in serious distress in order to get a 50% discount on a flatscreen television, you are a callous sociopath in need of serious help.  Or better yet, prison time.
