Not having heard details I assumed the problem was people trying to crash into the concert. Now I hear "the surge" was people trying to escape the arena as though something scared them.

There's a theory floating around it may be related to graphene in the vaccine and 5G experimentation. Vaccine was mandatory and some say the sound coming from the stage did not resemble music. Theory is a microwave hotspot cooked a handful of people causing the stampede.

I wouldn't know about any of that... But sure it is strange times.

Two more are apparently brain dead, but still alive, so I assume the death total will be 10, not 8, at some point. I don't know if they're keeping them alive for possible transplant purposes, or if the families just can't accept reality and are fighting the pulling of the plug.

You have to be brain dead to go to a rap concert.

Music is like candy.... You can't enjoy it until you remove the rapper.

If you are a dumbass to go to one of these events thinking you're going to hear "music" then you deserve to die "just because". cRAP is just that, nothing but CRAP.

Metal's got 4 decades of mosh pits with nobody dead. Rap is such silly stuff. Darwin loves it.
