Man dies at Black Friday, people step over him to get to sale

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Ever wonder what kind of people we are turning into? Hopefully the latest news out of the holiday weekend isn’t indicative of where we are headed as a nation. A man had a heart attack at Target during the big sale and rather than offer to help, people just stepped right over him to get housewares they just had to have.

The Blaze reports:

A 61-year-old man collapsed and later died while doing some Black Friday shopping in West Virginia, yet nearby bargain hunters continued to shop, some even stepping over his body, according to local reports.

Walter Vance collapsed in Target just after midnight Friday, local station WSAZ-TV reported. One witness told the station fellow shoppers, seemingly unconcerned, simply walked around him.

An ER nurse and an off-duty paramedic who happened to be among the crowd eventually assisted Vance and tried to administer CPR before an ambulance arrived. He died later in the hospital.

“If somebody’s having a heart attack and we just step over them to get to the sale, what have we turned into?” Glenn asked.

“America is great because America is good. We must be good. But we’re growing such contempt for each other,” Glenn warned.

“Quite honestly our president this weekend gave a Thanksgiving address where he called America lucky. Lucky? I’m sorry. No, we’re not lucky, sir. We’re blessed. And we worked hard. We deserved many of our blessings. I don’t know if we do now,” Glenn said.

“Turn back to God.”

    As Lord Jesus declared that we cannot serve both God and mammon…so which is it to be for all of us on the individual choices level; will we follow God or will we follow after stuff (Mammon.)

    Mind you, in the passage of 1 Timothy 6:10, it is clear that the LOVE of money is the cause of many evils, and some translations say it as being the root of all evils…there is no problems with being well off or rich, it is the actions and motivation with what we DO WITH IT that make the difference.

    So again, will we each chose to follow God or Mammon?

    For me and my house, we will follow God.

    To the family of this man, may God comfort you and keep you and sustain you in the time ahead. May He bring forth a flood of blessed memories and fond times, of loving and hope filled moments to ease the pain in the future.

    May peace grace and be with you all today.
    Amen.

    That’s how people are nowadays. People only seem to care about themselves. Once the economy finally collapses, people’s selfish and hateful behaviors are going to shine forth like the sun. It’s going to be interesting.

OWS is wrong we have a heart propblem not a rich problem because look at what happens at black friday. you tell me who to blame for this mess us or the rich. we are the ones killing eachother for crap that we can not even take with us when we die. everyone look in your hearts answer this question would you leave i guy to die even if it means if you help the guy you die yourself? if you say yes then your heart is in the wrong place like Jesus said in John 15:13 Greater love no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. everyone it is time to come to the well. http://youtu.be/vLxdxw4Gj6g

    It is incredibly sad that the Christian story of the good Samaritan seems to be unknown to many Americans today.  HOW could anyone walk by this man without trying to help him.  Target employees who said they were not allowed to help has Target OFF of my shopping destinations until some exec from the company says that is not so. Would not be the first time Target and Christmas tradition were miles apart.

    Back in the 1950′s there was a psychological study done called the Milgram Experiment. On its face, the test subject was supposed to be helping the scientist in a study on learning techniques. The idea being that punishment helped people learn better. So, the subject would deliver increasingly powerful shocks to the “learner” in another room. Eventually this went into dangerous and then lethal levels. In reality they were doing no such thing. No shocks we given, the test really was to see how far people would go and could they be pushed past their comfort zone by the authority figure, the doctor in the lab coat.

    A new version was recently run in the US. The difference being that they stopped the test at the 150 volt danger level and told the subject what was going on. Prior to that point, they thought it was as real as the 1950′s subject did.

    In the original: 66% went all the way.

    The modern one: almost 80% did.

    So much for the Age of Aquarius and all that touchy-feely stuff the schools have been pushing. We see it here. A bunch of little narcissists went on their way and didn’t at least bother to dial 911, which would probably be the best thing to do is this litigious age.

    Oh my, I am so sorry for the family, may he rest in peace. I must say that after attending the 8/28 rally in Washington DC last summer a million people headed for the subways…very orderly I may add…while waiting for our train a woman collapsed, right there on the platform….a train came and no one got on because they were all trying to help..Someone yelled that they had the situation under control and paramedics were called…the group I was with waited with her until medical personnel arrived. I am sure she was fine, however she was elderly and it was scary. I did not expect anything less, after spending hours with the group of fine Americans and not one act of violence…this is what REAL Americans act like. I sure hope what they were trying to buy was worth it, but we all know that those people lost a little bit of their soul on Friday…God Bless them.

    I am appalled that this incident could have happened anywhere, but I am even more disgusted that it happened in my home state of WV. Though we are much maligned and mocked by the rest of the world, one thing we had going for us was the caring and compassionate people that populate this small rural state. Always friendly, helpful, kind and giving, the hardy folk of WV usually stand out in these areas.  Unfortunately, ugliness has come to our neck of the woods and hearts have grown cold even here. I am praying for our nation to turn back to God before He takes away His hand of protection.

    In the accout of this that I read, the story started out saying “some reported” that people stepped over the man. Then, in about the 4th paragraph, they reported that his wife said this story is not true. According to his wife, there were several nurses and others who came to help him. Is it possible people passed by because others were already assisting? Is it possible the “some reporting” didn’t fully grasp the situation. Not sure we are getting the whole story here.

    We all say that the nazi’s were our enemy, we all say that what Hitler did  will never happen again. Hitler sent millions of Jewish people to their death, with no thought about killing mothers, kids, fathers and grandparents, he sent them to the gas chambers. People are proud that we liberated the few remaining prisoners, took them home to be treated as poor, poor people who have been abused, but we walk over a man who is dying so that we can get that one thing that Sally wants for Christmas? We are no longer a people, but a bunch of hypocrites, uncaring, unfeeling, and bound for one thing, and that is to get what we can get, while we can still get it. Please someone prove me wrong, but I thing that is futile.

    Honestly, this isn’t a fair depiction of what people would do. That might happen where people are apathetic to plight because they’re used to it, but not here in Texas. In fact, I had the most pleasant shopping experience of my life and even in California it wasn’t as bad as this article. Yes, people can be rude, but for the most part they’re not tuned out.

    I’m very happy to say I have stepped in when someone was in trouble, took that person to the hospital and waited until relatives arrived. I didn’t do it because it’s the Christian thing to do. I am an atheist. I didn’t do it because my family taught me to do it. I did it because I love life and can’t sit by idly when another human being is in trouble.

    So again, I wouldn’t start painting the US with such a broad stroke. We are, after all, a nation of individuals.

    This, unfortunately, is what society looks like when God is thrown out of the picture. This is disgusting, but it is the nature of sinful man. This is what we all become without God. Look at the ancient Israelites who did similar things when they fell away from God. Look at the world after man fell into sin (just before the Flood). It’s all sickening, but we brought it on ourselves. We have to keep faith and pray that the Lord will show people like these the Way. We have to keep faith and pray that God will continue to nourish our own faith so that we can spread God’s Word to people like this. God have mercy….

    @amijo7 … Shalom~ If you “read an account” of this story different than what is being ‘reported” at GBTV radio, you would serve your fellow American Patriots with honor and truth by linking to that account. Otherwise, you are simply “some reporting” and your “some reporting” implies a lack of truth in the GB/Blaze staff. They may have it wrong (I trust they do not). If so, provide the link that offers the correction. If you are repeating a hazy-lazy reporters sloppy work, STOP IT! If your “some reporting” is what it seems to imply (in the great tradition of Cong. Joe Wilson, “You Lie!”) you cast a dark shadow on GB/The Blaze staff, etc.
    @ landofaahs ..Goodness gracious, great balls of fire, a man died. A life is over and the destination of his soul for eternity is unknown to most of us. This is not a time or place for gallows humor!

    Glenn, Cheer up because as I said in the last post all of the conditions listed in Revelation, chapter 11 are present for the two-witnesses to call about both 144,000 Israelites, 12,000 from each of 12 tribes, less Dan, which are the Irish. They also are going to call out the International Congregation of Yahweh, led by Elder Gary Miller! Why ONLY Elder Gary Miller’s Congregation? Because he is the only Spiritual Body in Yahweh that Keeps the 7th Day Sabbath from dawn to dark, all the required Annual Sabbaths and keeps the only correct yearly calender in the world at this time with 30 days months and all the days begin at dawn and end at dark each day! Will this all matter? It does according the the Law of Yahweh! No? Watch!  For further information contact:  info@icyahweh.org;      p.s. Everyone will rue the coming of September 16, 2012 if i’m reading the “signs of the times” correctly! Again, watch!

    I cannot believe or even fathom that any human being would ignore or step over another human being who was in serious need of medical help. My question is why the paramedic and the ER nurse eventually went to the man to help..what was they  worried about that stupid sale?…my gosh, what is more important than helping someone in dire need? I have to shake my head in disbelief that anyone could be so self-centered on things vs saving a human life. My thoughts and prayers go to the family of this dear man.

    Does our media, including you my friend, use the tragedies and/ or shortcomings of others to promote their own agenda? I remember hearing of such things when I was a child and remember being told that society was over with and that we should all prepare for the end of the world. I believe that God must be very patient and that we are being a bit hubristic in predicting what he will do.

    I stand with God Ryan.  I don’t believe in stealing, I believe in equality for ALL men.  Take Steve Jobs for example.  Steve Jobs was an innovator, yet if you take a look at the suicides and the horrific slave factory’s in China that allowed him and the apple empire to become the empire that it is, would you still be for it?  Thats not Godly at all!!  How can I just turn a blind eye and say, “this is capitalism”?  I can’t do that. 

    I don’t mind capitalism per say, I just want the exploitations and the special interest contributions to political figures to stop immediately.  This is the crux of most of the problems I address in a roundabout way.  Value EVERY human life on earth, not just Christians and Jews.  Politicians need to stop taking bribes to wash the other hand when they get elected.  In this current system, politicians can NEVER be for the people and you know it.  Peace brother.

    How sad that people would step over the man who fell as he was shopping.  All because they needed to get to that special item they wanted.  And more than one person stepped over him and just ignored his need for help.  Finally a nurse saw him and gave him help.  Shame on you for treating him like an animal.

    Wow!!! Sorry folks…didn’t mean ot get your panties in a wad. Here is the quote from the Huff Post Business story filing “While some news organizations say that no one helped the collapsed man, his wife refuted this report. Lynne Vance said six nurses shopping in the store came to her husband’s rescue and performed CPR until paramedics arrived, notes the Sunday Gazette Mail. You can read the full story at the Huff Post, and you will definitely see this quote from his wife. As I said, I’m not sure all reports out there are giving the full story. Is it possible some reports only want to tell a bad story and ignore that there might have been some good involved?? The story is still up at the Huff Post under Business if you want to read their full account.

    You are so correct in what you say.  When God is removed from sight, then, God, being the gentleman that He is, will no longer be around to help.  He gives everyone “free will” and it is up to those people who ignore Him  to make it on their own.  He is, of course, merciful, but He doesn’t push the door down, He waits for us to open it.  What happened to this poor, unfortunate man is so sad.  I give kudos and thanks to the two or more who came to his aid and to the employees who called 911.
         I love Target stores, but, I intend to find out  from management if it is, indeed, true about the rule that employees cannot help injured or dying people in their isles.  If true, then, I will definitely stop going there, EVER.  I just hope and pray that it isn’t true.
         I pray that this man’s family will feel God’s comfort and the  strength of His Holy Spirit during this sad and difficult time.  God bless you!

    After watching the weekend news on the riots in stores, pepper sprayed, fighting over a game, riot over $2 waffle maker (really riot over a waffle maker) these people are completely out of control.  So when a story comes out about a man that dies in a store, not surprising. Should never have happend but not surprising at all.  And we really shouldn’t have that feeling but in todays culture and the way people fight over nothing especially the $2 waffle maker, nothing is surprising.

    Imagine this 
    500 people outside a grocery store, but the store only has 50 loafs of bread. What would happened in todays enviroment. What would the response be?  would the elderly and children get the bread or would they be thrown to the side? we saw the response of the Japanese in their tragedy but what would happen in America?
    They fight and almost kill each other over a video game or waffle makers, what would they do if there was very little food?

    Well now Vinny, I’m getting it from you, don’t you remember?

    I ran convoy’s up and down MSR Tampa and MSR Dallas for months in that 120-130 degree weather with 50lbs of gear in a HMMWV that only spit out blazing hot air. You can believe it or not….I could care less.

    There’s no watch list little man, I just want you to back up your outrageous claims that you were in the Army for 10 years and why you didn’t deploy until 2009?

    What was you MOS and what unit were you in? Simple questions that wouldn’t identify anyone. What school did you get your 2 degrees and when did you manage to get them while being in a Top Secret position in the Military. Lets see, at least 6 years full time, while in the Military, maybe 8 or 9 years to get 2 degrees. I know all about that stuff being a “Lifer”.

    So please, clarify those few things for me Vinny/strtlk. You’re a story teller pal. (putting it mildly, I call you a liar)

    You know Glenn I remember watching an episode of The Golden Girls, which is definitely to left of center in its underlying and hidden agenda recently that sadly addresses it. The reference was talking about the first Mr. Bush’s term and called him the introducer of the “me, me, me ” generation. Sadly, I think that particular generationis being exemplified now by what you described here. By the Occupiers, who want free housing, houses, food, whatever. The really sad thing is that they do not know the things that they purport will eventually lead to the situation as was in Russia before the econmic fall, in China’s hidden problems, and in the fall of Greece and the eventually the Euro. Keep it coming Glenn, keep it coming!

    This story reminds me of the (true) reports about an occasional pig farmer who falls into a pen and is eaten clothes and all.

    What bothers me most is that this man wasn’t magically transported to that Black Friday event. He was a willing participant, and sadly, another statistic. It may sound strange, but I’ve seen plenty of people have heart attacks in civic and church settings; they’ve somehow received prompt, lifesaving, treatment.

    How can you expect humane treatment at an event where the name of the game is lust, greed, and unrestrained selfishness?

    So anyway, I read the story on Drudge which linked it to the paper of origin which had comments from the local people who were actually there and knew him!  Look the guy was OLD, he had heart trouble, he had a bypass in 2000- it was his time! Probably would not have been saved. Due to budget cuts (thanks libtards) a fire station close by was closed which would have had a defibrillator faster. There was a nurse and an EMT guy there who helped him. Crowds of people were around him not stepping over him. They and the store called 911. MAYBE one guy stepped over him, maybe not. If you don’t know CPR get out of the way- continue doing your shopping or whatever, some folks suggested dropping to their knees and praying- oh that would help traffic- blocking the ambulance crew on the way in.  This is a much ado about nothing rabble rousing anti-capitalistic story planted to sensationalize OWS. Well, Black Friday set new records, they LOST- LOL!

    I add my voice to yours and call for blessings for this fallen man and his family.

    It’s sad that no one had the training or the will to risk helping another in distress for a time, but heartening to know that two among us did step forward to assist, and obviously others had already called 911.

    Under the Good Samaritan laws, you have a positive duty to at least report to the authorities, but it is your choice whether to do more. If you decide to take action, you are not permitted to stop until relieved by competent help and/or authority. If you do render aid, you are immune from prosecution and civil action, provided that your actions are considered reasonable to the circumstances. It is a terrible mistake to do something, unless you have some idea of what you are doing…

    This doesn’t surprise me at all. 

    I try not to go shopping on Black Friday, or on Christmas Eve, but I have done so on at least two occasions.  Those are frantic, fast-paced times.  I compare it to trading on the floor of a stock exchange.  Who’s going to notice a man dying there?

    If you take the time to do something, whether it’s to dial 911, hold that man’s hand, calm him down, be there for the paramedics, guess what happens?

    You miss out.  

    And while you may have saved a life, you may have lost that gift you were going to get.  Is that worth a man’s life?  Heck no!

    So don’t.  You’re not qualified anyway.  What are you going to do?  Give him mouth-to-mouth?  The “experts” say not to do that anymore, and they keep updating the methods for CPR every so often.  Is your CPR card up to date?  What’s more, if the man didn’t have the good sense to go on Black Friday with a friend or a relative, someone who ought to give a damn, then it’s his risk not ours.  Who are we?  His keeper?

    It’s the government’s job to take care of all of us anyway.  They took responsibility, it’s his hard luck if he didn’t make it.  That’s the risks we get for utopia.  That is what we’re living in, right?  Where I don’t have to worry about people like him when I’m racing for the latest deals on Battlefield 3 or Skyrim.  Isn’t that what utopia is all about?  Someone else to handle the ugly tragedies of life so I don’t have to?

    Why miss out when I don’t have to? 

    True, maybe one day I’ll be on the floor of that mall, dying, wishing that someone holds my hand in my last moments.  But I’ll understand.  Just hope nobody looks at me when I go, because I’d rather they not be disturbed.

Let me sum it up for you..The poor man was very unlucky to be in a crowd of materialistic boobs and lost his life. If this nation was still spiritual verses material we would have felt very blessed to help a fellow human being and not be thinking how lucky we were to be first in line for the new what ever. I do not want to think that these shoppers are the reflection of who we have become and that they rely on luck to get  through the day. This country has been so blessed. It came with a price through blood sweat and tears. I think these two articles are very connected….OK, now you can tear my comment apart

    Glenn states WSAZ News reported this. Go to their website. Here is a link to their article:
    http://www.wsaz.com/news/headlines/Man_Dies_on_Black_Friday_Shoppers_Unfazed_134507443.html

    Here is a part of the article:
    “Kimberly Rowland is a nurse and was shopping with her sister when she saw Vance and tried to help revive him.

    Rowland says Target employees blocked off an aisle and called 911 while another held Vance’s head.

    The 61-year-old was rushed to the hospital, but later died.

    Rowland says there were many people nearby, but no one she saw was ignoring Vance.

    “I didn’t see anyone walking by him, anyone that was
    heartless,” Rowland said. “Maybe that happened right before I got to
    him, but when I got to him he was getting help. We were doing everything
    we could for him, ya know I would hate for that to be the last image or
    the last thoughts they had of him that no one would help.”

    Target did issue a statement Sunday saying “Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time.”The original article has the statement of a bystander who mentioned some ppl did not have concern. Let’s all take a step back and use our heads. Media will try to sensationalize the situation. Our local WSAZ News Channel3 is NBC and they do hype up stuff. They UPDATED the report because several people who were witnesses say they got it wrong. Imagine that… MSM hyped up something to make news. It sure did that and it spread like wildfire! While here in WV we have a bunch of redneck hicks, and a bunch of ppl who suck the life out of the welfare system, are obese and toothless, we do care about our fellow citizens in time of need.

    This story doesn’t suprise me at all. This country is full of “me,me,me” people who cannot think beyond their own wants and desires yet if the man had been a family member or friend, they would have been outraged at the other people who stepped over the man to get what they wanted. I look back to Dr. Spock and his radical child care book in the 1960′s that told parents not to discipline their children because it could harm their personalities. Those self-centered children grew up and had children who were even more self-centered and irresponsible. Dr. Spock apologized before he died, said he was very mistaken in his theories, but the damage was done.

    Hit the nail on the head Glenn.  I think you as well as most conservatives already knew that our country had become like this, that is why we have lost most of the blessings God originally bestowed to us.  It takes a story that is so out of this world, like this poor man, for it to reach our conscience.  Most of the time it is in our subconscience and we know deep down we have become like this, but there is not always an example like this in front of us.  There is a verse in the Bible that touches on this issue, Im not sure the exact verse, but it says that man will worship the creation instead of the Creator.  We have become a selfish people where no one is important but themselves.

    wax cold.”
    Rom 1:31 “Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural
    affection, implacable, unmerciful:”

    We have reached the point in human history where things are more important than people.  Have we forgotten that this time of the year gives us the opportunity to override our selfish tendencies and offer good will and peace to our fellow men?  However, since we have been brainwashed to devalue human life we have become lower than the animals.  Have we forgotten that two millenia ago Immanuel was sent to us.  Isaiah 7:14.

    Luke 2:1-14:
       1.  And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from
    Caesar Augustus, that
    all the
    world should be taxed.  (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria).  And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.  And Joseph also went up from Galilee,
    out of the city of Nazareth,
    into Judaea, unto
    the city
    of David,
    which is
    called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage
    of David:)   To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.  And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.  And she brought forth her firstborn son,
    and wrapped
    him in
    swaddling clothes, and
    laid him
    in a manger; because
    there was
    no room
    for them
    in the
    inn.

    And there were in the same country shepherds abiding
    in the
    field, keeping watch
    over their
    flock by
    night.  And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about
    them: and
    they were
    sore afraid.  And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings
    of great
    joy, which
    shall be
    to all
    people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which
    is Christ
    the Lord.  And this shall
    be a
    sign unto
    you; Ye
    shall find
    the babe
    wrapped in
    swaddling clothes, lying
    in a manger.  And suddenly there
    was with
    the angel
    a multitude
    of the
    heavenly host praising
    God, and
    saying,  Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward
    men.

    We have become the most savage of all the animals.  We know better.  This is what happens to a society that forgets God!!!  If God does not judge America, He will owe an apology to Sodom and Gomorrah.

    We reap what we sow. We have sown to the god of this world. The harvest is ripe. What is the bounty? Indifference. Coldness. Uncaring. Self-centeredness. How can we expect more from ourselves when we invest so little? Sadly, this doesn’t shock me at all. It makes me almost ashamed to be of the same species as these people. Only humanity could allow such. Turn back to YHVH our Elohim. Before it’s too late.

    This happened in my hometown, and the story is tragic, but also inaccurate. According to one of the nurses who attended to Mr. Vance after his collapse (not eventually as the report states, but almost immediately), the fellow customers and the store employees did everything they could and should have done. Employees immediately called 911 and blocked off the area so that no one else, unless qualified, could enter. The man had had stint surgery only two weeks ago, and was shopping alone. Again, this is a very sad story, but it seems that it has been sensationalized for the sake of a headline…I expected more from this organization, even if the original reporting was also to blame…  read the update here  http://www.wsaz.com/news/headlines/134507443.html

    In order for a society to be good, it’s people have to be- as individuals.  For that to happen we have to be aware of what is going on and know the truth and then we can choose to do the right thing.  I think in general that is what Glenn is trying to do through GBTV.  It takes courage to stop and do something that is against what the group is doing it is unnatural but if your self-aware and question you won’t fall into that trap.  It seems like these people were in their own little worlds with their eyes firmly fixed on the “prize”.  A few apparently weren’t hypnotized and took action to help this poor man.  Perhaps all evil is selfishness.

    Before condemning people, Americans and America itself, one should get a clear and true picture of what really was happening. I know that Beck strives to tell the truth above all else, but please get the story straight and full before committing us to doomsday. This is just another example of shady reporting. I’m sure that if someone had a heart attack in a public place, others would NOT be trampling on the fallen person. But I can bet anybody that a call for help would have been instant.

    2 Timothy Chapter 3 describes our day and age. Paul saw our time and warned us.

    1. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
    2. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
    3. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
    4. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
    5. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
    6. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
    7. Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    I’m one of five lay preachers at our church. This last Sunday I had the opportunity to preach on Advent and how we should spend some time waiting in line for Jesus (www.wheresthelinetoseejesus). I see a lot of videos from security cameras of people being beaten while by-standers just watch. How pathetic have we become? Out of my way, man. I have a sale to get to!!

    Maybe Michael is not as far fetched as you think; “as go with the president, so goes with the country.” or I could just quote an old saying; “the fish stinks from its head”.

    With other words: when the president hates his own country from the depth of his heart, why should the citizens care for each other? 

    It is very tragic. And you might not see it, but there is a relationship between the two.

    Yes, Glenn, you are correct!!  In my opinion, if our president knew God as he claims, he would never say “lucky”.  Blessed is the correct term.  Thank-you, Father, for blessing this nation and each of us and our families and friends.  Turn back to God, America, and God will bless us again and again to over flowing.

    The ridiculousness of Black Friday and what people will do for a bargain is beyond me.  I don’t participate in Black Friday, I refuse to be part of that madness.  For those who do I pray you will find the true reason behind the season and it’s not about the best bargain at the local Walmart. It is about the birth of our beloved Savior and the fulfillment of God’s promise to us. I also pray for the family of this man and for the souls of those who merely disregarded his need for help by stepping over him to get to their bargain.

    One should not be surprised that a shopper died while others walked over him, We are no longer our brothers keeper. As a young lad when our friends become ill, We would go over and take care of his chores, And when we became ill he would come help us. Now it is not important to help him, Rather its better to go over and rather than help him, We just steal or take every thing we can. We have become a society of it’s mine, and what you have is mine also. I am not one to judge, However I have made a pact with the devil, And he has promised to put me in charge of the shovel crew. And I do intend to keep all you self centered ass holes very warm. And I will try to be as caring to you as you were to this man that died under your feet, This will be PAY BACK TIME!!  When you say it’s as hot as hell down here, then I will know I am doing a good Job    .Bless ya???

    Yes, what you are saying is true. This is the law. If one provides aid while not trained properly in CPR, and the victim dies as a result, one can end up in jail. And perhaps, that is why a lot of people afraid to get involved in saving a life. But even then, one can call for help instead of just stepping over.

    A man died while shopping, and that makes news, several soldiers get their legs blown off and not one word, I for one can see what we are doing here, We have people on food stamps, We have 40% that don’t pay taxes, I guess they can’t understand turbo tax filing. you have government workers making twice what non government workers make. unless you are union, so the solution is this, give everyone a government job, And make them join the union seiu, or some other commy outfit. Pay them twice what they are worth, Plus give them a retirement package that will equal the pay they are now getting after 20 years, tax all the government workers to take care of all those that don’t work and don’t want to work. And make sure that everyone has all the medical help they need, This will be for all whether you work or not.remember they were born in america, and america owes them this, And with a chicken in every pot, we will be the best taken care, even better than the great society, remember that under LBJ, It was pure crap then and it may have another name now “intitlements’ But it is the same crap. With the government taking charge of everything, enjoy your last days of freedom. Long live the dictator. You voted in these dorks, so be happy with yourself.

    Knowing the media as it is today, it was reported as Glenn said, but was a sensationalized news piece that was not entirely true.  The man fell during the rush and later died, but according to later reports he was helped.  The media of today CANNOT be trusted.  Lies about some people are common, yet nothing is said about Eric Holder and Fast and Furious and Elena Kagan’s misleading testimony at her nomination hearing, again nothing about that and she won’t recuse herself.  Where is the name of Heaven is the balance?

    Glenn… It would be easier for me to say im shocked, suprised or even upset by this news.  The truth is… I am NOT suprised, Im not upset… im disgusted and sadly nothing suprises me anymore.  I’m only 32yrs old with a family of my own.  It’s amazing how people are so worried about one thing… Greed!  Selfish is an understatement… it has been said if you were a “wise” person, you need/would “live like you never lived before, so you can live like you never lived before” (i think i got that right). Bottomline… we(society)have lost common sense, respect, loyalty and humanity in general! My this family find some peace after such a loss and those who just walked along… well, that is something they need to live with for the rest of there lives and then after!

    This tragedy deeply saddens me. I work at a store where the customers are, usually, very nice and
    respectful, even on Black Friday. It makes you wonder though, when so many
    Americans complain that they don’t have any money, that the lines are all the
    way through the store at midnight Black Friday. Aaaahhhh, credit the answer. The credit
    cards that I’m expected to sell to our dear customers. We try to fill empty
    lives with stuff and more stuff and then return what we bought a couple years
    later because we’re broke. Yes, we’ve seen many people return things – even
    jewelry that they bought 2 years ago, because they need the money. In the meantime, truckloads of stuff are being delivered to the stores
    all throughout our city every single week so that we can buy, buy and buy more
    of the perfect sweaters or perfect socks or perfect tablecloths. What would
    Jesus think if he saw how much money was spent to get the “perfect Christmas” at our house if he could grace us with his presence at the celebration of
    his birth? Is that why he came down to save us? We’re missing the point. What
    else could be done with that money? What happened to our priorities? Trust me,
    I really really would like to get my daughter the pink Christmas tree just
    because it is so pretty and we didn’t have pink Christmas trees when I was
    little. What would be the harm in that? What more of a gift would it be to
    spend the 45 minutes it would take to drive to the store, pick out the tree -
    not to mention all the time and money I would need to spend to decorate it –
    wait in line to buy it, you can see where this is going… What if I spent that
    time with her reading Bible stories? When people are more familiar with Santa
    Claus than Jesus Christ, it’s no wonder that it’s come to this.

    cproud,  Won’t tear your comment apart because I agree.  We have become a very materialistic

    nation because God has been replaced by — what?   Prayers are no longer allowed in schools and

    even some sporting events have banned them.  There has been a ”war” on Christmas in some parts

    of this country—in stores and in some communities.  It’s seldom you will hear a public person invoke

    the name of God.  Your statement is true: This country has been so blessed.  I just pray it lasts.

    Sorry, Glen. I am so very sad to say America is NOT good. When we have Moms who so obviously murder their kids and walk away scott free, when people are murdered in their own homes, and medical care has become something that’s for sale to the highest bidder, when “education” means nothing but political indoctrination, when gay activists are allowed to bend the school curriculum to massage their egos, when more babies are aborted each year than are allowed to be born, how can we say America is good? When we have military Chaplains who aren’t allowed to pray in Jesus’ name, we are truly rotten to the core. I could go on for hours listing all of the corruption this nation has succumbed to, but I think most of us realize that somewhere along the line, we have turned into a selfish, evil culture; one that can walk past a dying man because, after all, we’re shopping! Still others who might have wished they could help were probably afraid to do so for fear they would be sued for breaking some unknown rule or law. It just doesn’t pay to help anymore, but thank God for people who aren’t afraid to get involved. I hope that if that ever happens to me, there will be a nurse, doctor, EMT or just a good Samaritan to call an ambulance for me and hold my hand, but I don’t know, it’s getting to be such an alien world out there.

    I agree with you, Daniel. We have permitted the legal system to hamstring anyone who’d offer to help, from medical personnel to concerned bystanders. As I said before, lots of those people probably thought about helping, but changed their minds for fear of some kind of legal retribution. What a sad state of affairs we have come to.

    That’s true, though I think it would be pretty hard to actually kill someone with CPR (notice I didn’t say impossible). I think that every school should go back to requiring students to learn CPR, I remember that when I was in school we used to have health classes where that was one of the things that were taught. Do they still do that, anyone? Anybody who wants to be prepared should look up CPR classes in the area where you live, they are usually free. I received my BLS/CPR card in nursing college, but you can get one without having to go to college. Do it ASAP, you never know when you might have to use it on one of your own loved ones, friends, etc. Red Cross, American Heart Association, and some of the larger hospitals will often have courses available. Trust me, it is worth it. If you’ve never saved one person’s life, then I can’t describe how wonderful it will make you feel, and even if you never have to use your skills it can bring you a little peace of mind just to know you can.

    The Good Samaritan Act is different in each state.  For your Peace of mind, check with your state on Laws.  In most states, medically trained (nurses, doctors, anyone that has to have a valid CPR Certification Card) are held to a higher standard under the law.

    As a nurse I am held to the higher standard, but I stop in spite of my advanced age and limitations.

    I can’t believe anyone really thinks this group going by or stepping over this poor man were thinking about the Good Samaritan Law. All they were thinking about was to get the Black Friday bargain they came to get and that was more important to them, not someone on the floor and in trouble. What has happened to our country that we don’t care about our fellow man in trouble. My heart goes out to his family and their loss. May God comfort you for your loss.

    Whether you know CPR or not is not a good reason to not stop and help your fellow man. We must bring back America’s moral standards and to care about each other again.
    May God help us all to wake up and get back our America to what it used to be.

    Shame on you Glenn Beck. Sensationalized headline is very deceiving.  How do you know that people just walked on by and did nothing? Do you know for sure that some of those passerbys didn’t call 911?
    If you don’t have the training to assist someone, you don’t touch them, you call 911.  I took a CPR course recently. Our instructor told us that 3/4 of people with CPR training do not use it on someone because of the possibility of being sued if the person ends up dying.  And if you see someone helping the victim, what good does it do to stand around and watch.  Move on and stay out of the way.  Your headline is bogus.  I am so disappointed in you Glenn.

     The real reason they don’t want to abandon Afghanistan is, because of the Exxon Mobile’s pipeline pumping oil from Afghanistan. George Bush Jr. brags he went to Iraq for the oil, to show off to his affluent friends. So instead of half the national deficit, we have it double, they want to build permanent bases in Iraq and Afghanistan, so big oil, and the Republican’s can get rich. So why do they want to make Afghanistan a permanent duty station so they can protect the interest’s of big oil and the pipeline, before they started drilling and pumping oil out of Afghanistan, the country was considered the largest untapped oil resource in the world. They don’t talk much about the pipeline now because the Billionaire’s and corporations have silence everyone. I don’t vote and support neither party, nor will I be a registered voter, ever, because I never register to vote. George Bush Jr and the Republican party wanted to control the oil infrastructure of Iraq, and Afghanistan to enrich themselves, Billions traded for the corporations, while America accumulated Trillions in national debt, not such a good trade off, but it was for 1% of the population. The people of Afghanistan live simple lives as farmers and ranchers, living off of mountain goats, and sheep’s, and simple crops, too stupid to realize what they have an abundant source of natural resources that they do not benefit from, while Hamid Karzai hordes over 100 Billion in secret accounts for himself. The people of Afghanistan use horses and donkeys, and pick up trucks, as their main weapons, while military contractor’s keep building new weapon system’s for themselves and get richer, America goes down hill in debt. China owns 11% of the national debt, and Japan owns 10% and they are over 200% over GDP in national debt. So who owns most of the national debt Private Security Firms profiting off the national debt of the U.S.  They want to go to war with Iran that will cost the U.S. 90 Billion a year, instead of executing precision strikes.  Like Iraq, they always have known, since they have too much oil, no economic sanction will work, and only by declaring a full scale war can they actually bring about change.The real reason they don’t want to abandon Afghanistan is, because of the Exxon Mobile’s pipeline pumping oil from Afghanistan.

    Your instructor is wrong. The Good Samaritan Laws throughout the country vary, but generally hold those who render aid immune from criminal or civil liability. In this case, the following apply:

    West Virginia

    W. Va. Code Ann. §55-7-15 (1966)(Gen. Stat.)W. Va. Code §16-4D-4
    (1999)(AED User limitation on Liability)W.Va. Code §16-4D-1 (1999)(Legis.
    Findings)W.Va. Code §16-4D-2 (1999)(AED Def.)W.Va. Code §16-4D3
    (1999)(Early AED programs)W.Va. Code §55-7-15 (1999)(Gen. Stat.)

    Provides immunity for rescuers
    Provides immunity for acquirers and enablers
    Encourages/requires training at CPR & AED training at AHA Standards

    Check your own state’s statutes and be sure…

    I think that it is sad that commercialism has taken yet another family holiday. It used to be fun to get together on Thanksgiving as a family, look at the ads & husband & wife or family decide who was going to go where on Friday morning. Now the sales start two weeks in advance. The stores are open on Thanksgiving & it’s another day that the family is torn apart and that is unfortunate.

    And here I thought I was the worst man in stores on Black Friday! I had a knee injury and so I asked someone for a cart before he was done with it to give it to me after he was done, but he just grabbed his stuff and gave it to me, which was very nice. I then took this cart, put my cane in, then, using it something like a walker, I moved hurriedly through the crowded place, eventually running over someone’s ankles.

    I immediately cursed myself and apologized profusely, and I still feel bad about it.

    I guess the point is, this is inexcusable; even what I did was pretty horrible, but I was definitely a bit out of control. Oddly enough, I also was in West Virginia, though not in this particular store. I would have freaked out if I saw this, I would’ve called 911 to come, and asked those there to help if they knew how.

    . I believe there is a connection between the man dying and Obama in the fact that people just don’t care anymore. Care if a man dies right in front of them or enough to get off their couches and vote for a decent Godly leader. If one doesn’t care the subject also becomes irrelevant, so we end up with a crooked and skewed society, as we have. Oh, and in Texas if you DON”T render aid YOU CAN be charged for FAILURE to render aid. Just a thought for the more “progressive” states to consider

    I think the first report of this story mentioned that this might have been the case but the nurse who gave him CPR states that she did not see anything  like this and he was getting help when she arrived.  The follow-up to this story is on the WSAZ website and she is quoted at length which makes a point to counter this rumor from what appears to be either one person or a reporter making the story bigger than it was. http://www.wsaz.com/news/headlines/134507443.html  this is the story with the follow-up

  • http://www.facebook.com/Mark.Allen.Spears Mark Allen Spears

    I think everyone needs to read the real story and not one that is added to by staff.  The follow up to the real story tells what really went on as opposed to the first version and a more accurate one from the nurse who was there and gave CPR.  http://www.wsaz.com/news/headlines/134507443.html

    Most folks do not need to be in the way or watching like a show esp if they have kids.  The man was taken care of by people as well as the store staff who blocked of the isle he was in.  NOTE he was not in the door way of the store and people walked over him like they made it sound when the story broke.  I heard the story on the news since I am here in WV and it sounded worse than the follow-up that has an actual witness as opposed to someone said something!!

    Always do your own research and never believe all that you hear or read.. THIS IS WHY IT IS NEWS!! 

    I hope and pray his friends and family handle this well and are able to cope and adjust through this difficult time during the holidays.

    So why was Glen and his other mouth piece bashing the nurse… ‘she didn’t get her dvr, was she part of OWS, etc.’.  The nurse is the one who stopped to help.  Don’t use her as sarcasm.  I guess I don’t get Glen’s humor on the radio.  I never missed his TV show, but have never enjoyed this stuff.  Just my opinion…  I do think our country has become self-centered and selfish.  Just look at all the sitcoms that are popular.  We need to turn back to God in order to change.

    No, I can honestly say I have never made such comments because it is just not my nature and those things just don’t come into my thoughts.  All I could think of was the family of that poor man will spend the rest of their days and Christmases without their loved one.  It just was not an appropriate statement to make at that time, if ever.  I’m sorry if I came on too strong with you.  Please forgive me.

    Yes Max, and we know the actual facts of this travesty because they showed the video footage of the actual events as they unfolded.  It broke my heart to see that little child lying in the street.

    Good to know the facts, for sure!

    Actually, nobody can truly judge what anyone else is thinking, or what motivates them, and I wasn’t trying to do that. I was simply stating that a lot of people with good intentions who maybe would have helped in bygone times, have now been discouraged because of our legal system, and that goes for anyone who would, as you suggest, even clear a space or put a jacket over someone. It’s not hard to imagine some lawyer accusing someone of negligence for not having done even more than they did. Courts, juries, lawyers, they do it all the time. Defendants have their motives for doing something second guessed as a rule. I was not making excuses for those who didn’t care, just pointing out that we have no way to tell who did or did not do something for what reason.

    Did any of you see this? Elk rescues drowning Marmot. It goes to show, that animals are more civilized than a lot of humans.

    Thank God for you Glenn Beck.  For what you do and what you say takes a tremendous amount of
    courage.  I admire you and I have learned more about our country  and its history than I ever learned in
    school.  What possibly could have been more important than a man fallen to the ground with a heart attack, was it the waffle maker, or the blue sweater, or the electric toothbrush?  One day the person or persons walking over him will be haunted by that memory when faced with a similar situation.  Maybe it
    will be when they are eating the waffle.  My heartfelt compassion to the family  of that man..

    Vinny, no point flagging SoThere, you know.  No one here has provided more disinformation and deformation than you.  YOU should be flagged.  You’d rather trust the Turks and Russians for news concerning America than ACTUAL news sources.  Go back to your Young Turks morons or whatever they are now, okay.  You do realize that NOTHING they will ever say will ever be relevant, don’t you?

    Vinny, you call SoThere’s attack on you an unwarranted deformation of character and then attack this website to be a Freemason’s website.  Talk about an unwarranted deformation of character.  We can ALL sue you for that outright lie, you know.  And concerning that it is extremely easy to prove the lie, taking everything you have won’t be very difficult to do.

    Forgive them Father for they know not what they do, these were the words of Jesus Christ, I pray our Father in Heaven forgive all those that chose to put more importance in an item, than in a human life, what has happened to us, what if that would have been your father, your brother, your son. Would any of you have done the same NOTHING to help him??? What ever you do, to the least of my brothers, you do unto me. We all need to drop to our knees, and ask his forgiveness, turn back to God, ask his blessing, knock on his door, ask his forgiveness, beg for his wisdom, and knowledge in his word..I can’t believe this sort of thing can happen in our country.

    To Oakcreek1, you are correct.  The very name alone turned me off in the begining and I have never gone out shopping on this day.  I want nothing to do with “darkness”.  (has nothing to do with the color black, in case someone is inclined to think I am racist.  This is begining to be a trend also.)  This Nation needs to turn back to God rather than trying to allievate Him from sight and mind.

    I am an R.N. and I wish I had been there and seen him. I might have been able to do something in those first few minutes to save his life. I would have talked to him and told him he was not alone.Im so sorry. Those people are doomed. What has happened to people??God help us all!!

    I do not think it is wise to scare the general public about helping someone like the man who fell and died. Most people are scared already because they think, what if I dont know what do,maybe someone else will help, besides what if they try to sue me(Ive heard of that).
    People dont have to be trained professionals to help. They can call 911 and stay with him and so he would not be alone.(That is called compassion) If people were stepping over his body, that also could have been stopped.

  • Daniel Martin Gray

    Ruth, I hope I didn’t scare anyone. If you read my posts carefully, you’ll see that I was reassuring people that they would NOT be liable to lawsuit for helping.

    You don’t have to be a professional to be trained. I have taken Red Cross and other first-aid and CPR classes many times over the years. It’s not that hard to help, if you want to…

  • http://www.facebook.com/cellphone20 Brian Eppstien

    As long as you have manufactured scarcity you will always have violence and lack of compassion. Sales forcing limitation on amount sold in a very compressed time frame are designed to tap into the primal fight or fight instinct that switches peoples brains into the mode of I must look out for myself above all others and all else.

    I could never do this-not help.  Can’t help it.  I pray for the broke down truck on the side of the road or the  people involved when the ambulance, firetruck or police car go by.  How awful?  BLESSINGS To this man and his family. Thanks for letting us know so that we can pray for his family and BLESS them all.

    Dear Downyounder,
    I am not racists either and I don’t want anyone thinking what I said was because of that. I just really think it’s to out of control. This is not the first person who has died due to Black Friday. That one year that poor lady who got trampled to death and she was pregnant. It’s just sad and there is nothing that is on that good of a sale that I can’t live without during that time. My life and my family and my daughter are way more important and come first, than trying to get something on sale like that. It will just go on sale after Christmas anyway and if they are still wanting it I can get it then. I do my shipping and put it on layaway just in case someone changes their mind. Christmas has gotten way out of control. We don’t even celebate the true meaning of it anymore and our kids don’t even know what the real meaning stands for. It is Jesus’ birthday and we need to celebrate that. I made the decision a couple years ago that I was going to teach my daughter the true meaning of Christmas. She would get presents but I want her to know who’s birthday it is and why we have Christmas. She is able to tell me everything she gets the next day or the day after that when I ask her, Some can not even remember what the got the day after. She has really enjoyed it since we started celebrating it the way it is meant to be and is suppose to be celebrated.
    God Bless you and your family. May the rest of the year and all next year bring you a blesssed year. :o)

    The word “luck” brings up a red flag.  Perhaps using the word is a bad habit that has sprung out of the vernacular from lack of vigilance.  Still, no excuse.  Be mindful of the source of all blessings.

    It makes me positively SICK when I see how people behave all in the name of Christmas for a day that is not the birthdate of Jesus, and he doesn’t get any gifts, not even the respect of these horrid people who call themselves Christians !  The date, Dec. 25th comes from the Roman Saturnalia and had nothing at all to do with true Christianity. All the celebrations are pagan in nature, not bringing any glory to Jesus or his Father, Jehovah. So someone had to die for people to show their nature of greediness so they could buy something before everyone else.  God help them when the day comes for judgement to be given to all these hypocrites whose actions certainly are not what Jesus taught us to be. I hate it when all these pagan holidays begin with Halloween, and every month has something to get people to buy a bunch of stuff they don’t really NEED anyway.  I’ll be so happy when all of them are over forever !

    So deeply sorry for the family of Walter Vance. What a tragedy. Where is security from the store in all this? I simply cannot believe people would just walk around or step over a human being to do ANYTHING. Just wrong. I am a Retail Store Manager and I can tell you that would NEVER happen in my store. WE ALL CARE for Human life

    they need to ban black friday all together.It just shows how unfeeling people are.

    Glenn, you are absolutely right…this country is filled with greed to a point human life doesn’t matter any more. God has blessed this country more than we can ever imagine…do we still deserve it???!!!

  • mdkrause

    They don’t have to ban it, people just need to clue in. All because it’s black Friday doesn’t mean you have to buy like crazy when you don’t need it and kick and fight people over a video game.

    But I understand where your coming from.  It really is stupid

    This is what happens when HOLY days become “holidays” and then holidays are lowered to
    Sale-A-Days. The only thing that many retailers and shoppers care about and now WORSHIP
    is the “Almighty Buck”! I work in a major department store and have worked in clothing and/or
    department store retailers for decades and it is getting WORSE. Luckily I work for a FAMILY owned Department store chain that still LIKES their employess enough to NOT make them
    work insanely, unGODly, UNfamily friendly hours. The other major retailers ( and YES, I know
    the economy SUCKS! ) are MIS-treating their employees, all for the sake of satisfying the “needs” of a minority of sales slobs. Where I live, the majority of customers are decent people.
    But more and more are getting to be LAZY, APATHETIC, SLOBS who could care less about
    their fellow shoppers, the sales staff ( who may have to work these kind of jobs due to lack of
    education or the job market ), people in the parking lots, etc..
    It’s only been a few years ago that a Wal-Mart worker in New York was trampled to death by
    uncaring sale-a-holics who wanted to keep shopping AFTER the store had been declared a
    CRIME SCENE!!! Then this tragedy at Target and the pepper spraying shopper?!? Where does it end? Or more appropriately, where will WE LET IT END??? Some states still have “blue
    laws” in regards to liquor stores and car dealerships NOT opening on Sundays. Will the insanity
    and GREED of continued “Black Friday” madness eventually push us to bring BACK similar
    laws so that retailers won’t be able to MAKE their employees work on what we USED TO CALL
    holidays ( HOLY days ) or early AM hours that TOTALLY screw up peoples natural sleep
    rhythms and possibly mess with their HEALTH??? Many retail workers like me are beginning
    to DREAD and even HATE the “holiday” season whos REAL meaning has been lost to sales.
    Don’t let JESUS CHRIST turn into the CHEAPEST PRICE holiday. And BTW…Merry CHRISTmas!

    Being focused and being inconsiderate are two different things. Being down right unconcerned is in a league all by it self. I pray the people who turned their heads or, worse still, stepped over this dying man will have a visit from their inner man, or woman, and realize that when someone is having a heart attack every second counts. These people should be ashamed.

    I pray that this man`s family finds the peace and comfort  of God .It is a sad state of affairs indeed when we as a nation and people can simply just step over a person in need. God bless this poor man. My heart aches for him and his family.It shows how callous and uncaring people can be when they can commit such  an act as to just step over a dying person. If they really did this then they will be judged by God for it because in a sense  they have this mans blood on their hands. God help us all.
