"Frequent faller" tries to scam Wal-Mart
People like this need to get beaten senseless, and force fed UPN's prime-time line up. On Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving, for those of you who haven't heard the term), news broke that Patricia Vanlester was knocked unconscious and, her sister said, "trampled by a herd of elephants," a stampede of shoppers reaching for DVD players that went on sale at 6 a.m.
Pundits and media outlets nationwide stated that the incident was just another example of greedy Americans who don't give a rip about the holidays and are just trying to score a deal.
But leave it to journalists to crack this lady. This lady has been "trampled" several times, filing 16 other claims of being injured at work or at a business. Veteran journalist Al Tompkins interviews the reporter who followed up on the anonymous e-mail tip, and how he broke the story. Good read, and if it weren't for guys like this, we'd all feel sorry for the lady. I know I don't.
