Only in America

Only in America would the following events occur:

"Black Friday" is the day after Thanksgiving and known as the biggest shopping day of the year for retailers in the United States. On this day at the Long Island Wal-Mart in New York a man was trampled to death by the 2,000 people waiting outside at 5 am to get in. Another woman suffered a miscarriage after being pushed down by her fellow shoppers. In Palm Desert, California two men shot each other and were both killed in a Toys R Us fighting over toys.

What the hell is wrong with America??!!! ONLY in American would this kind of thing happen. People killing each other so they can get a TV for half price or buy two TVs so they can sell it on ebay and make a profit. Meanwhile people are being killed in a tragic terrorist attack in India, but here we are fighting and killing each other over toys and saving $5.
