I just read this myself and I suppose I should be immune to shock regarding Jackson’s bullshit, but I guess I’m not.
Lemme get this straight: The owner of the nightclub failed to bring his building up to code. The owner of the club is Jackson’s friend’s son. 21 people died there. But it’s the CITY’S fault??
Also in the article: ‘‘This is open use and the city is 100 percent aware of it, and in fact management has asked consistently and repeatedly the city to assist with crowd control,’’ he (an attorney for the owners) said."
Excuse me? Since when is the city supposed to help you manage your crowds in your private business? This wasn’t city property - it’s a NIGHTCLUB. And if you’re having that much trouble with crowd control, perhaps you should take a closer look at a) your clientele and b) THE FACT THAT YOUR BUILDING CAN’T ACCOMMODATE SO MANY PEOPLE.
Honestly, that man is going to make my head explode.
