    Most likely the accidnt could have been smaller if:
    1. the security doors were unchained
    2. if not maybe more exits doors
    3. or those upstairs had an easy way out without going downstairs
    4. if their was a sprinkler system
    5. if the security guard limited access to a much smaller crowd
    6. if onstage fireworks were outlawed
    7. if anyone gave a hoot about safety
    8. if the owner wasn’t trying to make a revenue killing for the new years
    9. if the fire department showed up quicker
    10. if there were smoke detectors and a sound system that could reach all parts of the building
