In Some Ways This Was to Be Expected

Man Shot While Waiting in Line for Playstation 3.

This is an awful story. However, I would say that it is to be expected in our society. Consider this, from the "thugs" point of view. There are 20 people standing outside at 3 AM waiting to buy a game console that costs nearly $600. I'm no math major but that equals a lot of money and not too many people who are gonna put up much of a fight since they've been sleeping and eating in the line for probably 2 or 3 days...easy pickens? Of course. Two problems occur to me. One; our society finds video games SOOO important that people have taken this entire week off of work just to stand in line for a video game console. Two; that people in this society would think in the way that I state above.
