Wal-Mart spokesman Dave Tovar called the incident a “tragic situation.” “The safety and security of our customers and associates is our top priority,” Tovar said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families at this difficult time.”
Before police shut down the store, eager shoppers streamed past emergency crews as they worked furiously to save the store clerk’s life. “They were working on him, but you could see he was dead, said Halcyon Alexander, 29. “People were still coming through.”
Only a few stopped.
“They’re savages,” said shopper Kimberly Cribbs, 27. “It’s sad. It’s terrible.”
This occurs with a manufactured (store imposed) shortage of goods, on Black Friday – the day after America expresses their gratitude for cheap goods. Will these scenes be replayed when there is a real shortage of goods during the impending long emergency that James Howard Kunstler envisages?
