trampled woman has crazy grifter history
December 7, 2003 04:15 PM

In interesting turnaround, the Walmart trample victim has a history of filing personal injury suits - under a variety of last names, at that. So, the iconic story of holiday shopping frenzy could turn out to be a show of greed on at least two levels. And quite possibly a testament to how effectively one person can talk a group into a raving mob.

Karl goes on to imagine how she may have incited the crowd of people around her into a buying frenzy in order to ensure her own injury. It does, indeed, sound like a movie. Creepy. [I was thinking more Lifetime than Coen brothers, but the latter would certainly be more watchable.]
