Attention, shoppers: What the f*ck is wrong with YOU?

Posted by stylebitch on December 1, 2008

A man trampled to death in a WalMart store on Black Friday – at first I simply couldn’t believe it. Has the world gone completely insane? Is a bargain already worth more than a human life? Read the depressing story in its entirety here:

NEW YORK — Police are reviewing surveillance videos of a
post-Thanksgiving shopper stampede that trampled a suburban Wal-Mart
worker to death, but they acknowledge it may be difficult to bring
criminal charges.

Nassau County police and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said no new
information was available Saturday on the employee’s brutal death,
which rattled shoppers even as they flocked to the Valley Stream store
a day later.

“It felt a little freakish,” customer
Ellie Berhun, 48, told the Daily News. “Some man lost his life because
a VCR was on sale? Please. It’s just too sad for words.”

Police said the temporary worker, Jdimytai Damour, was mowed down as
about 2,000 bargain-hunters surged into the store at Friday’s 5 a.m.
opening, leaving a metal portion of the door frame crumpled like an
accordion.

Other workers were knocked to the ground as they tried to rescue
Damour, and customers simply stepped over him and kept shopping even as
the store announced it was closing because of the death, police and
witnesses said.

At least four other people, including a woman eight months pregnant,
were taken to hospitals for observation or treatment for minor
injuries. The store, about 20 miles east of Manhattan, closed for
several hours but reopened Friday afternoon.

The day after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday because it has
traditionally marked the point when a throng of shoppers pushes stores
into profitability for the year.

Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart said it added staffers and outside
security workers and put up barricades to try to prepare for the crush.
But police spokesman Detective Lt. Michael Fleming said Friday that
security was inadequate for a scene he called “utter chaos.”

Criminal charges are possible, but identifying anyone in the store’s videos may prove difficult, Fleming said.

Damour, 34, came from a temporary agency and was doing maintenance work at the store, Wal-Mart said.

A woman reported being trampled by overeager customers at a Wal-Mart
opening Friday in Farmingdale, about 15 miles east of Valley Stream,
Suffolk County police said. She suffered minor injuries but finished
shopping before filling the report, police said.

Items on sale at the Valley Stream Wal-Mart included a Samsung
50-inch Plasma HDTV for $798, a Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum for $28,
a Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera for $69 and DVDs such as “The
Incredible Hulk” for $9. (Source)

Forever MY “Lion King”: A Tribute to Jason Raize!

Posted by stylebitch on September 8, 2008

It’s been over four years already, but relistening to Jason Raize‘s heart wrenching recording of “Endless Night” from Original Cast Recording of Disney’s “The Lion King” last night I had to post this little tribute to an amazing singer, a beautiful actor – and, judging from his suicide at the age of 28, a highly desperate human being. May you have found a beautiful dawn to your endless night, Jason!

“Endless Night”

“He lives in you”

“You win again”
