There is no comparison between a crowd crush and civilization collapse. A crowd crush can happen any time with poor crowd control management.

I'm speaking in terms of a thumbnail or microcosm of the lack of mentality and disregard for order, but I think we understand each other.

If these animals do this at a concert, imagine what'll happen when there's no food on the grocery store shelves and no heat and electricity ... but that's fodder for another conversation.

They're not animals, any more than those people trampled to death at the Who concert several years ago. They're just people caught up in the mob. Large crowds...mobs...take on a life of their own. Best to stay out of crowds. My Dad always told us, "if you see a crowd, walk the other way."

It didn't take long.

Astroworld Tragedy Triggers Lawsuit Against Travis Scott, Drake & Live Nation

The suit asks for more than a million dollars and claims the rappers “incited the crowd” into actions that left him “severely injured.”

Knew this would be coming fast on the heels.

Fixed it for ya!

Based on the video of the crowd hurtling through the gate, I'd say it was 60%+ white, 10%-15% black, and 20%-30% Latino.

80% stupid fucks

EDIT: Breakdown of overall attendees, not being taken out by security.

fyp...your welcome

Thank you. Your figure does seem a little low, though.

i left the 20% for those that just have not been exposed to actual music possibly...so there may be hope for them
