    Report: Shoppers unfazed as man dies at Target

    Source: msnbc.com

    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.

    "Where is the good Samaritan side of people?” Vance’s co-worker and friend Sue Compton told WSAZ. “How could you not notice someone was in trouble? I just don't understand if people didn't help what their reason was, other than greed because of a sale."

    This seems to be the current left wing meme as a way to support and accentuate OWS: it's all about greed; greedy shoppers, greedy corporations.

    4. "I just don't understand if people didn't help what their reason was,

    other than greed..."


    Yep, that's it. Heartlessness, selfishness, and greed go hand in hand. It's what conservatives, the GOP, the Tea Party, are all about.

    But people did help, just not EVERYONE.
    From US News:

    Friends say Vance had been suffering from heart problems for years and had open heart surgery in 2000, but his death came as a shock.

    An E.R. nurse who also happened to be shopping at the store tried to administer CPR. She and an off-duty paramedic tried to help Vance while he was on the floor.
    There's no report about the individual laying of the floor without help, only that people walked around him or over him. If they were unable to help THAT IS WHAT THEY NEEDED TO DO-GET OUT OF THE WAY so someone who could help could get in to do so. It also doesn't help to have a bunch of people standing around in the way gawking as people try to help someone.

    They are assuming that people were "unfazed" because they got out of the way.

    They are simply using this tragedy of an individual who probably had a heart attack and died for political gain...........blame those greedy people. It's sick and it reflects more poorly on them than on those who couldn't or even wouldn't help.

    5. But hey, let's send riot police after the Occupiers!

    I mean, people walk over dead bodies at OWS every day.

    :cry:

    Of course this is coming from the joyful bunch who thought that murder and sexual assualts got in the way of the message they were trying to send with OWS

    If you;re going to murdered and raped, make sure it serves the Moonbats' polical agenda.
