I don't know if I ever want to visit Dodgers Stadium.



How come for a Stadium in California, a state that is supposed to have chill, there are is such a violent culture. It seems every few years something like this happens.

From ABCNews.com
"Last night, an altercation occurred suddenly between two men who were leaving the stadium," the Dodgers said. "One of the men was injured as a result of the altercation. A witness immediately reported the incident to stadium personnel, and emergency medical technicians were promptly dispatched to provide medical assistance at the scene. The matter is now being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department, and the Dodgers are cooperating fully with the investigation."
It seems to get violent over there pretty quickly. People have speculated that it's the gang culture out there. Is it just people don't care about other humans anymore? Do people realize this is just a game? Is it the alcohol? Don't forget this incident from seven years ago.

The Dodgers stepped up security outside Dodger Stadium following a much-publicized fight on Opening Day in 2011. Bryan Stow, an off-duty paramedic and San Francisco Giants fan, was attacked by several men in Dodgers jerseys. Stow, who was placed in a medically induced coma after the attack, hit his head on the pavement and was repeatedly punched and kicked, according to authorities.Two men involved in that attack pleaded guilty and were sentenced to prison in 2014.

If a few hundred of us Mets fans go out there one year, is there going to be a problem?
