I dealt with a line of around 1000-1500 people this morning, no issues. Nobody rushed the doors, nobody got hurt, nothing. I have done that for 5 years now, and I have never had an issue. Every year, there are people in my line telling me how terrible things were at walmart, people were telling me this morning about how there were fistfights at walmart, and that things were absolute chaos.
Its sad that people have to get hurt, because all it takes is talking to the people that are in line and making your expectations known. In 5 years, one time I have had kick one person out of line for trying to rush the doors, other than that, I have never had a problem.

I think people should be prosecuted, not for murder, but for being disorderly or rioting or something.
