I can't believe after that poor guy was trampled to death, Hell-Mart opened their doors a short time later and it was business as usual, as though nothing happened! It should have remained closed at least for the rest of the day out of respect to the victim and his family, and to also show that they share the public's outrage over the employee's horrific murder, have their priorities straight and are thoroughly investigating the incident, even if that means taking a huge financial loss. Yeah, I know, dream on. Profit is the only thing that matters to these scumbags, not taking responsibility as they should for this tragic loss of a young life and showing some contrition. Really disgusting.

Thanks for the comment, StuyTown. It is really disgusting.

Two men were shot to death at a Toys "R" Us yesterday in California. Wasn't shopping related, though.
