How will that stop the animals that jumped the gates for hours? How do we know the one's that got in free weren't the cause for overcrowding? Why not start enhancing gate video to hold those accountable for jumping the gates!?! It could be TV reporter video that was shown too.

So much wrong happened that could have been avoided! C’mon there needs to be and must be better crowd control. Who was over seeing that and why continue a show when you know there is beyond over crowding? Who calls those shots??? This is another sad example of the show must go in at the cost of people’s lives…. So sorry to all the families that lost their loved ones. Watching this made me cry and scared for all those in that moment. Been to concerts myself and scary to think that something like this could’ve happened. This was outside plenty of room for people. Make the venues bigger!!! Higher more staff and make easy existing.
