crab in a sack
 n.— «They climbed on top of each other, and when the sack was opened, there were always a few dead ones, as the bigger and stronger ones crawled on the smaller ones, sometimes killing them. Hence the phrase �crabs inna sack.� When someone was ruthless and selfish, he was referred to as �crabs inna sack.�» —“A nostalgic glance backward” by Lydia Humes The Reporter (Belize City, Belize) July 7, 2006.
