17 killed in mass panic at Germany's Love Parade
Furthermore, Sunday it's been reported that this "LOVE FEST" has been canceled forever more.. No more Peace and Love apparently..
First things first as we extend our condolences to the families' loss and the German community who's no doubt in mourning today as are all..World news - Europe - :"BERLIN— A stampede inside a tunnel crowded with techno music fans crushed 15 people to death and injured dozens at Germany's famed Love Parade festival on Saturday.
Thousands of other revelers kept partying at the event in Duisburg, near Duesseldorf, unaware of the deadly stampede that started when police tried to block thousands more people from entering the already-jammed parade grounds.
Police are still trying to determine exactly what happened, but the situation was 'very chaotic,' police commissioner Juergen Kieskemper said.
He said police closed off the area where the parade was being held because it was already overcrowded. They told revelers over loudspeakers to turn around and walk back in the other direction before the panic broke out, he said.
German news agency DAPD reported the victims were crushed in the large tunnel leading to the event site and that emergency workers had trouble getting to them. continue reading at msnbc.com
Now for the rant......Pre paid ticket sales would have prevented this....DOH! you greedy promoters.
We saw this in Cincinnati with the WHO stamped 31.5 years ago on Dec 23 1979, and now we see it again today because liberals want to re - write history, and thus no one can ever learn from it because no one under 30 knows it anymore. And that's because they're not taught it.
After the deadly WHO concert that fateful evening, General Concert admissions were stopped worldwide for decades for this very reason.... but NOOOOOOO, these liberals of today think 'they know better' and since 'it hasn't happened in SO long' they drop their guard, lift what they see as a 'no longer needed curtain of protection' and now 15 are dead in all ironies of ironies, at a festival deemed the LOVE PARADE.
Unreal. It's so so sad and predictable it's almost comical but far, far from it when death results.
All to see a bunch of no name musicians just like me, when all surely went figuring on spending what they deem an afternoon of '"getting harmlessly wasted and showing the 'capitalist pigs' we know better than they do"...Peace love and all that jazz. Gee where've we heard that before?
