90. That shit tells you
that there was no one outside working the crowd. The crowds were permitted to, or encouraged to start gearing up the excitement, the competitiveness. It's not hard to turn a crowd into a mob.

If they'd had a few decent security people outside working the line, just bullshitting with people, keeping them calm and friendly - distracting them from their singular fixation it could have made a huge difference.
