It’s a bad idea on every level imaginable, especially in a place like Houston, Texas where things are running out of control. For some reason common sense is no longer common in the United States.
Are people being forced to attend? No. It’s called free-will, and if people are allowed to demonstrate, loot and riot by the hundreds and thousands without consequence (especially after the country was shut down), why can they not attend a baseball game where safety guidelines will be in place?
You are correct, there is no more common sense.
So, you would welcome people to buy tickets to attend a baseball game all because other people (protesters) protested against police brutality?
I’m saying that you cannot condemn a person or people from trying to have any semblance of normal life, like attending a baseball game, and condone large gatherings of demonstrations.
I’m not talking about the cause, which is just, I’m talking about public health. Sporting events would have health checks and safety protocols to adhere by, while large crowds in the streets are a free for all. It’s a comparison in safety, not issue.
