Horrible news from the Love Parade in Druisburg, Germany, on Saturday: 19 people were killed and hundreds were injured in a stampede near a tunnel. Organizers say it will be the last Love Parade.

The Love Parade tragedy is definitely something that could have been avoided only if the organizers were keen on their crowd control plans/ strategies. This event has been going on for several years and so far the event has been running without a hitch.

What went wrong this year? Is it the change of venue? Or was the crowd rowdier than the previous years? At any rate, whatever change implemented, this should not have happened. Memorials are now being offered to those who died. Germany and other countries are in mourning because of lives lost. What’s sad is that these people went to the Love Parade to show their love for music and for life. It is such an unfortunate event!

I, with my team at PeopleBrowsr have come up with a similar report representing sentiments of the general public on different issues, topics and interests. Visit for more information.
