Default Brazil night club fire --- when will these bands get sense?

What a ****ing tragedy! So many young people dead, and all because some stupid **** in a band thought it would be a good idea to let off a flare in an enclosed space! Are these people mentally deficient or what? If they survived the band member(s) responsible should be charged with culpable manslaughter or something.

BBC News - Brazil nightclub fire in Santa Maria kills 233

I remember when this happened in Ireland (Stardust Nightclub) in the 80s, but there the cause was not completely ever determined, and the main thing there was that all the emergency exits were blocked so that people couldn't slip in without paying. Jesus, can you imagine the panic? And now here we are, thirty years later, with another tragedy born of a fire in a night club. When will people learn to take precautions and not be so stupid? I weep for those who lost their lives, but I grind my teeth in anger for the idiocy of those who inadvertently started the fire.

It's ridiculous and sad. My mom said this happened in Montreal in the 70's sometime, in some club that was on the second floor of a building and all there was only one exit which was blocked. Nobody got out.

There was also the fire at the Great White concert in West Warwick, Rhode Island here in the US in 2003. Killed 100 people. All because of the band's pyrotechnics and the club's flammable acoustic foam.

Type 'Station nightclub fire' into Youtube, that one is bad. EDIT - It's the same one Janzsoon is talking about sorry.

Think at one point you see the doorway blocked and it's just bodies upon bodies that tried to get out. Grim as ****.

It's shocking how quickly it spreads though.


Bradford City Football Club Stadion Feuer! 11.Mai 1985 - YouTube

This is bad too. Stand burns down live during a televised football match. That video is still used today in fire safety to show how quickly it spreads. Both tragic and fascinating.

Flammable foam and pyro? Whoever organised the venues events wanted fired from that job, for sure.

Ah how I wish that had been an intentional pun. Sadly I am not that bright a spark.

When will dudes in bands grow up and get sense? Good luck with that.

Disturbing video.



No doubt, lots of pain and suffering were involved before they went unconscious. 60 bodies inside the toilets alone? Ugh.
