What\’s Wrong With America

That isn\’t a question. And if it were, here\’ the answer: ‘Lottery winner’ causes riot at Ohio coat store

In case you are reading this after the link is no longer active, the short version is that a woman entered a Burlington Coat Factory store in Ohio and declared that she had just won the lottery and would pay for everyone\’s purchases up to $500. Turns out she didn\’t actually win the lottery and in fact had no money… a riot ensued.

This says it all:
By the time employees realized Brown didn\’t have any cash to pay, police said, she already had taken off in the limo.

That\’s when angry customers, realizing they weren\’t getting free coats, began throwing merchandise on the floor and grabbing clothes without paying for them, Nace said.

\”Everybody was like, \’I still want my free stuff,\’ and that started the riot,\” he said. \”It looks like (Hurricane) Katrina went through the store.\”

That\’s what is wrong with America… \”I still want my free stuff… so I\’m just going to take it\”.

    A dangerous combination of stupidity and a false sense of entitlement. Apply this to any aspect of US life you please, and you’ll be right 90%+ of the time. I’m not at all surprised at this event.
