Concert shooting

You people commenting are DISGUSTING! The man who was shot was a father and he was defending his daughter. Thank goodness he didn't lose his life. It would have been traumatic for his daughter to witness the death of her father, but I guess that you kind of people of used to seeing that in ghetto.

thankful for some real people left in this world

thank you so much for actually finding out what happened and not assuming it was some ignorance. i am happy to know there are still good people out there in this world.
