I’m proud to say that never in the history of mankind has anyone ever been trampled by a raging stampede of cats. Walmart can’t say the same of its fine customers.
On Black Friday on Long Island, NY, a 6’5”, 270-pound temporary Walmart employee, Jdimytai Damour, 34, was knocked down and stomped until he suffocated by customers who couldn’t wait to load up on cheap junk. At least four other people were injured, too.
You could say those customers behaved like animals, but that would insult animals.
As usual, excuses are flying, like some shoppers “stepped over” the man. Or they got caught up in “mob mentality” and didn’t know what they were doing.
I’m not buying it. There’s a huge difference between terra firma and a human body under anyone’s feet. They knew what they were doing and didn’t care.
Then they got irate about interrupting their shopping when police tried to clear the store. I think the police were wrong, too. They should have barricaded the entrance (which was also damaged) and refused to let any customers leave. They all participated in a murder. That made them all suspects.
The police should have photographed each person to match against the surveillance video, and offered clemency to anyone who immediately confessed to stepping on someone. Those people know who they are. And some of them are undoubtedly church-goers who call themselves Christians and pretend to live by the Golden Rule.
Ironically, it was their zeal to celebrate this season of peace and love that sent them to Walmart in the first place. Now when they present their loved ones with their Walmart bargains on Christmas Day, they can joke, “I hope you like it. I got it over someone’s dead body – literally.”
That’s why you never see cats in church, either.
