People arrived in the parking lot of Marathon Clothing to mourn Nipsey Hussle. However, things reportedly got a bit out of hand, and police showed up in riot gear.
This is utterly ridiculous. Actually, it's completely shameful. N***as can't stop being "n***as" for one moment of the day??
According to Veronica Miracle of ABC 7 - Los Angeles, a huge stampede began after hearing a loud noise at Nipsey Hussle's vigil, on the 3400 block of Slauson Avenue.
CBS - Los Angeles reports that two people were shot while attending the memorial. Likewise, the source indicates that 6 people were stabbed during the gathering.
Here's footage showing the stampede, after alarming noise sent the huge crowd scrambling for cover.
Nipsey Hussle Hasn't Been Dead 48 hours Yet...
The disrespect is sickening. Nipsey was known for helping people in L.A. become better versions of themselves. Those who are hurting show up to his memorial, only to find there's more ignorant violence on-location??
Not only were there adults at the vigil. There were also several kids. In the video, you can clearly see parents scrambling with their children.
At some point, civil "decency" has to show up...
This is ultimately embarrassing. Really...not only is the alleged suspect reportedly a Black man...but people are still acting a fool, even at Nipsey Hussle's memorial.
Where does unfiltered ignorance draw the line in its blatant audacity?
Here's an aerial view of the stampede.
Nipsey Hussle Memorial: At Least 50 Emergency Officials Treating Multiple Injuries
According to CNN, several dozen firefighters were on-scene and medically treating victims of the stampede.
Also, the situation got so out-of-control, Los Angeles police arrived at the scene in riot gear. The source reports as follows.
Officials are currently trying to remove all patients to a safe location in order to transport them, the department said. It's unknown how many people are injured. Most of the injuries, the department said, are people who were trampled.
Via Twitter, LAPD headquarters responded regarding the situation.
"Our men and women are on scene and making every effort to protect everyone in attendance at the Nipsey Hussle vigil," the department mentions in its public tweet. "We understand the community is mourning and we feel your loss. We are asking for everyone to follow the officers directions and disperse from the immediate area."
According to the department: "Reports of shots fired at the vigil do not appear to be accurate."
However, CBS - Los Angeles has reported specific numbers...as aforementioned, two shooting victims. As well, allegedly six stabbing victims.
Nevertheless, it's all completely disgusting that this type of behavior would occur at Nipsey Hussle's vigil. The man was murdered in cold-blood. "N***as can't stop the foolery... ...even to mourn the dead?
