Is the Comcast Xfinity Theater in Hartford putting concertgoers in danger.
The attached video originally posted on twitter would seem to answer that question as YES.
The video was shot during a melee in the parking lot before the recent Rascall Flatts concert in Hartford. The Comcast Xfinity Theater has seen violence over the years by concertgoers who arrive early and many drink heavily in the parking lots. Many of those drinkers are underage juveniles dropped off by their parents. This "babysitting" process then puts an undue burden and strain on Hartford Police and EMS and local hospitals who must deal with the results of the problem. As well as endangering the safety of decent concertgoers

At the very least this behavior highlights the need for additional Police and Security coverage to ensure the safety of Comcasts customers. If this was any other entertainment venue, the City would be moving to shut them down until the problem was corrected
This behavior also endangers the handful of Hartford Police Officers assigned to patrol the parking lots during these events. Those numbers need to be increased to ensure orderly behavior for all attending.
