Hearing on Wal-Mart Death Yields Proposals

Retailers luring shoppers with deep discounts should have at least one security guard for every 200 shoppers, erect barricaded corrals 100 feet from entrances and consider other crowd control measures to prevent a repeat of this year's "Black Friday" tragedy, a top police official said.

Inspector Thomas Krumpter offered the proposals Wednesday at a hearing of the Nassau County Legislature's public safety committee — the first legislative review since the Nov. 28 trampling death of a Wal-Mart worker.

Jdimytai Damour, a temporary employee, had been on the job for about a week and had no training in security or crowd control, according to a lawyer for his relatives.
