Culture of Death on Long Island

Worker dies in crush of shoppers at Green Acres Mall

"According to detectives, Queens resident Jdimytai Damour suffered an undetermined death when shoppers knocked him to the ground of the Wal-Mart. The man was transported to the hospital where he died around 6 a.m. His exact cause of death will be determined by a medical examiner."

"Police describe the scene as "utter chaos." When fellow Wal-Mart workers tried to help Damour, they were shoved and pushed by customers, as were police when they arrived. "

"Police say a 28-year-old pregnant woman, as well as three other shoppers, were injured at the mall and taken to hospitals."

I pray for the day when Long Island will make national news for something good but I will not hold my breath. I would never go anywhere near this Mall, which was the site of a Christmas Eve shooting in a movie in which one person was killed, to list just one of many crimes that have occured there. Imagine the kind of life these people must live to line up at 4 AM to charge into a Wal-Mart for so called bargains.
