  1. I believe Travis is to blame for this. He's had a history at concerts of telling people to rush the stage and jump barricades. So of course people are going to see that as acceptable behavior at his concerts and that's exactly what happened at this one. He saw the carnage taking place and didn't do anything to stop it.

  2. I am 60 years old. When I was 18 years old my buddy had tickets to Supertramp. I had to sneak to the concert because my dad would have forbid me going. We were in the seats section. That is one of the reasons I went to the concert. When we sat down in our seats, I looked around to see the exists in case something happened and I had to get out quick to safety. I remember looking at the people on the ground from the stage back to the starting of the seats and I thought to myself, I could be down there, too risky. When I read and see terrible tragedy like this concert…..I think to myself….my dad was not old fashioned. Rather, he was wise because he knew bad things can happen when you are in the crowd of thousands and thousands. You immediately loose control.

  3. HOLY BIBLE——– 3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

  4. If there’s anything I’ve learned over the last two years is The amount of news coverage on this is getting.. something is really fishy. Like they’re trying to distract you

  5. Travis Scott KEPT playing while people were dancing on top of the ambulance trying to get in the crowd and help people! It's friggin' inexcusably egregious.

    I've been to MANY concerts and festivals, some getting pretty rowdy, (Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth and Alice in Chains wasn't exactly a "sitting down" show lol) and NEVER have I seen bands, (or their security,) allowing things to get that out of hand.

    I've seen musicians stop their entire shows because they witnessed a woman in the audience getting assaulted, sexually and physically, or threaten to stop the show altogether and leave town because a "Mosh pit" got too violent.

    There are plenty of things an artist can do to maintain everyone having a good time, while keeping everybody as safe as possible, as well.

    Nobody should have to fear for their life just to go see one of their favorite artists perform live, on stage, and have fun with friends.

    The fact that he saw what was going on, was aware of what happened, that multiple fans had DIED that night and he just continued like nothing happened at all, I'm sorry but that's simply NOT okay. Not just in my book, but by ANY standard or metric.

    (I'm just sayin' ✌)

  6. This has happened so many times, it's called "surge" its a wave that forms when tightly packed body's move in one direction, momentum builds and the wave crashes against the barriers. I've seen it multiple times from a spotlight chair.

  7. The Nonsensical nature of mixed up Phoenician alphabet soup, the Shirley temple of animal crackers. Demon derelict, the strain around the edges of the chemically altered eyes have it. The faltering sputtering of the Fauci cult brain. In and out of hokus poke poke poke poke us focus. Make up your dystopian nightmary mind
