    Why Did Fans Flee Wiz Khalifa Concert In Indianapolis?

    Music concerts in the US have been disturbed over the summer by false reports of mass shootings. Massive chaos erupted at the Wiz Khalifa and Logic’s concert on Friday, in suburban Indianapolis, after there were false reports of mass shootings on the premise. This caused the audience to leave the venue, urging them to flee home or to the nearby open fields.

    The authorities had the situation hastily in control. They reported, “Security staff responded quickly, and all the subjects nearby began exiting the area on foot. The emergency action plan was initiated and followed, and all gates including non-public exits were opened.” Even with the right precautions, there were a few hospitalized with minor injuries.

    This is not the first time that false reports on shooting scores have caused chaos at music concerts. This is the third time over the summer in the United States. At the Lovers and Friends music festival in Las Vegas, there were fake reports of security incidents that led hundreds of fans to exit the venue. It was reported that three were injured in the chaos. This was in May.

    Earlier in August, a Lollapalooza security guard was charged with making false terrorist threats by sending two fake mass shooting messages to her supervisor so as to leave work early. With false reports in the circuit, it would be better for administrations to tighten their supervision.
