Despite his size, the 6′ 5″, 270 pound Jdimytai Damour could not stop the rush of humanity as hundreds of Wal-Mart shoppers stepped on him on the Black Friday shopping day last week. This is making it extremely difficult for the Police to issue charges in the death of the Walmart worker.

Jdimytai Damour, 34 was crushed to death early Friday morning by a stampede of Walmart shoppers. According to the Local 1500, the Wal-Mart death was avoidable:
“This incident was avoidable,” said Bruce Both, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1500, the state of New York’s largest grocery worker’s union.
“This is not just tragic; it rises to a level of blatant irresponsibility by Wal-Mart,” he said.

On a good note, the police are reviewing video tapes to see if they can identify the Wal-mart shoppers who caused the death of a temporary worker yesterday. I doubt they’ll learn anything.
Indentifying Individuals in Wal-Mart Death Prove Difficult
The Chicago Sun Times is reporting:
Criminal charges were possible, but identifying individual shoppers in Friday’s video may prove difficult, said Detective Lt. Michael Fleming, a Nassau County police spokesman.
Ultimately, Wal-Mart is responsible for the death of its worker and the safety of the shoppers. When you’re being pushed from behind by a mob of 2000 eager shoppers to save a few bucks, I’m fairly certain all you’ll want to do is get out of the way or end up trampled yourself.
