The tragedy in Manchester in the United Kingdom yesterday was VERY SAD to hear about. People were exiting an Ariana Grande concert as it happened. This morning, I was watching an interview that Robin Roberts was conducting with two of the young ladies that had attended the concert. I don’t recall the exact answers that the concertgoers gave to whether just one of them had attended a Bruno Mars concert a couple of weeks ago at the same venue, known as Manchester Arena, or they both had, but an interesting comment was made.
The comment was made that the security at the Bruno Mars concert was much more intense, and much more thorough, than the Ariane Grande concert security was. My question is: why was this the case? Were different security companies used? Did they feel one concert brought rowdier fans than another?
I know it’s probably difficult, at large concerts, to be thorough, but I think it’s a necessity. Police and security personnel cannot allow discrepancies to occur. In this day and age, I think that CONSISTENTLY STRICT AND STRINGENT security procedures need to be adopted in every nation, at every venue, and in every situation that people are gathered in large numbers.
