I thought that police training included things like crowd control. They say it does. And they spend so much time justifying their actions based on their assumed expertise in these areas, after all. But now I read about this, and evidently said expertise amounts to the incompetence you would expect from a syphilitic fruitfly.
They had 1.4 million people funnelling into a huge techno-trance-house party in Duisburg, Germany. Through a tunnel. The police decided that the festival grounds were overcrowded, so they closed the tunnel.
At the exit, not the entrance.
There are 19 dead.
Crowd control expertise my ass.
