Brickbat: Panic at the Disco

|

Thirteen people died after police in Lima, Peru, raided a disco that was open in defiance of restrictions the government says are needed to fight the coronavirus pandemic. The raid set off a stampede for the door, causing people to be trampled or trapped in the tight space and suffocate. Some witnesses accuse police of setting off tear gas, but police deny doing so.
