From Yahoo:
Va. Laptop Sale Turns Into a Stampede:

A rush to purchase $50 used laptops turned into a violent stampede Tuesday, with people getting thrown to the pavement, beaten with a folding chair and nearly driven over. One woman went so far as to wet herself rather than surrender her place in line.

'This is total, total chaos,' said Latoya Jones, 19, who lost one of her flip-flops in the ordeal and later limped around on the sizzling blacktop with one foot bare.

An estimated 5,500 people turned out at the Richmond International Raceway in hopes of getting their hands on one of the 4-year-old Apple iBooks. The Henrico County school system was selling 1,000 of the computers to county residents. New iBooks cost between $999 and $1,299.
Ya' know - Come on people. A four year old laptop, used, and you rush in like Michael Moore-on after that last slice of pizza, willing to stomp the hell out of anyone in your way, or get the shit stomped out of yourself? Reality check here.

This definitely could have been handled better.
