A security guard loses his life trying to control a crowd of shoppers after Christmas savings.


What has our world come to that hundreds, yes I said hundreds of people stormed the WalMart doors and stepped on this security guard.  No one tried to help him, or keep people away from him, they just stepped on him and it killed him.

Police said about 2,000 people were gathered outside the Wal-Mart doors before its 5 a.m. opening at a mall about 20 miles east of Manhattan. The impatient crowd knocked the employee, identified by police as Jdimytai Damour, to the ground as he opened the doors, leaving a metal portion of the frame crumpled like an accordion.

I saw an interview and the man said that they tried to limit the people coming in and the crowd got mad and stormed the door.  He said, ” WalMart had flat screen TV’s for 400.00 and it was a tragedy that this security guard lost his life over electronics.”

People worship their TV so much they are willing to step on and kill someone to make sure they get a bargain.

This security guard has a name.   Jdimytai Damour was only 34 years old.  What should his family do?  How do you think they feel that their son was lost to a crowd of shoppers wanting a bargain.

Please join me in praying for this family.  Please pray for the people who trampled this man to death.
