Not sure if anyone saw this, but Jim Rome was discussing this earlier...

Computer chaos drew 5,000; handling questioned

By From NBC12 News
WWBT-TV

More than 5,000 people stood in line yesterday morning at the Richmond International Raceway, hoping to buy a $50 Apple iBook laptop computer. Several people were hurt in the rush to get through the gates. One father grabbed his 1 year old daughter just before her stroller was trampled and destroyed. One grandmother suffered cuts and bruises after being trampled.

Henrico citizens complain that the county could have done more to prevent the mad dash for computers by having more police or better organization.

County officials say they did everything necessary and despite the chaos, would do it all over again in the same way.

Paul Proto with Henrico County Schools said having more officers and staff would not have created a different outcome.

"You still would have had the same crowd same issues to deal with," Proto said.

An Henrico Police official says while another sale is not expected, if a similar situation comes up, the police department will step in to handle it.

The school district was selling the surplus computers because it is switching from Apple to Dell computers.
