Not an active threat

Last night there were gunshot wounds at a White Sox game in the third inning, and two women were hit by bullets. The police and security deemed it not “an active threat” even though they had/have no leads as to what happened. Game rolled on.

I was surprised to see the number of fans in the bleachers for an OAK-CHW game (picture midway down the page). Then I got to the bottom of the page and saw there was supposed to be a Vanilla Ice/Tone Loc concert after the game, which was cancelled for “technical reasons.” That’s why.

Technical reasons? Technically Vanilla Ice didn’t want to get shot.

Good. Lord.
