Here’s a quick rundown for those who MAY have forgotten what happened on the very first day of Astroworldlast last year on November 5, 2021. Eight people lost their lives with hundreds being severely injured. Two more people, including a nine-year-old boy, passed away following the event from their injuries. It was named the worst music event tragedy to ever occur in the united states and now the FBI is involving itself in securing justice for the victims of the tragedy at last year’s festival.
Several lawyers are actively representing more than 1000 victims in numerous civil cases, with one suit alone asking for $10 Billion. In addition, the FBI has begun an investigation of their own to potentially file criminal charges for individuals who contributed to the violence.
Dr. Darrin Porcher, a former NYPD lieutenant and an adjunct professor at the Pace University of Criminal Justice, said: “I think this took far too long. They should have hit the gas immediately upon starting the investigation.” He continued: “For the life of me, I can’t understand why this wasn’t done immediately, because they clearly understood the police department only has so many people. You’re investigating with 50,000 people at one location.”
Porcher is currently “serving as an expert to Hilliard Martinez Gonzalez LLP, a plaintiffs’ law firm already representing more than 700 Astroworld attendees,” as per Rolling Stone. “[The FBI] has a large field office covering the Houston area with resources that would be well-known to local police,” Porcher added.
