But the Black Friday melee is proof the department can no longer leave security for these kinds of events as much in the hands of the private business when the public is at risk, said Jim Carver, president of the Nassau Police Benevolent Association.
“We got caught with our pants down on this one,” Carver said. “There should be more communication between the department and the mall on what is going on.”
See? See? The tragedy of Jdimytai Damour, who was trampled to death by stampeding shoppers while working in a Wal-Mart store, shows the total incompetence of Government™ in managing crowds — nay, in doing anything! Yet Carver’s suggesting to add even more Government™! Two words, my friends: Unintended Consequences™! Carver, how do you know that if you add more police officers to the situation, you won’t cause more people to die? You don’t! Ha!
What’s more, it’s precisely because of the leftist activism of all you feminist affirmative actionists, growth-hating worker unionists, eco-fascist-communists, etc. etc. etc. that Wal-Mart can’t earn enough money to beef up its security! Liberal Fascists, the blood of this man is on your hands!
Besides, what’s the big deal anyway?
In short, the free market allows the intelligent to make smart decisions which are not only economically sound but also beneficial to growth in wisdom, virtue, and all those other largely mummified ideals. But the people who know this were sleeping in the small hours of Friday morning when the nuts were out stuffing shopping carts full of junk.
Yeah, some black people may die, but that’s a necessary sacrifice to allow really really smart people — such as myself — to get the best deals in accumulating virtue! Come on, every day people die. It’s a fact of life. Some people trample on others, some people get trampled on by others; some people live, some people die. It’s just human nature, nothing shocking about it.
If you wanted to know about a show, this was the guy, and he had a great sense of humor. […] He was the guy who was always lively.
