Astroworld police were unaware of the drama: They reportedly filmed the event 19 minutes after the mass movement alert

Sharing is caring!

The death toll from the AstroFest tragedy now stands at nine. As the accounts of the drama emerge, the responsibilities gradually become clearer. 

TMZ shared footage earlier this week showing a group of Houston. Police officers standing near the stage during Scott and Drake’s performance . The time stamp of the agents’ video situates the capture of the environment and the show at around 9:57 p.m., while the fire department reportedly reported the seriousness of the event at 9:38 p.m.

Scott and his team could be cleared

Based on these details, it appears law enforcement was completely ignorant of the drama unfolding near them, which bodes well for Scott , who also claims to know nothing about what was going on in the audience. though. even some participants attempted to inform the organizers of the situation, even going so far as to rush at a cameraman, but they were dismissed and left to fend for themselves.

The site also points out that there have been a lot of inconsistencies in the information released so far. The rapper’s legal representative, Ed McPherson, said: “  Houston Police Chief Troy Finner was quoted by The New York Times as saying, ‘You can’t shut down when you have 50,000 and over. 50,000 people. We have to worry about the riot, the riots, when you have such a young group. Yet soon after, Chef Finner declares that the onus of stopping the show lies with Travis. “

He also added: “  Investigations should start instead of pointing fingers, so that together we can identify exactly what happened and how we can prevent such a thing from happening again. “

Until the light is definitively shed on this tragedy, we reiterate our condolences to the families of the nine victims.
