What? Is this a Panamanian Soccer Game?

I am a guy who acts smart. But I cannot tell you the rip tide that subsumes such mindless and self destructive actions.

I can understand it when there is a fire or some other eminent  threat. But the precipitating factor in this instance is a road blocked.

The incident took place when two crowds converged at an intersection where one of the thoroughfares had been blocked for official use. My question is this why hasn’t anything like this happened here? Not once in the history of the U.S. has their been a stampede like this .

 It is telling that it was during the “stoning of Satan” activity which involves symbolic violence toward Satan (throwing rocks at a pillar.)
