God Bless the police and emergency responders for saving lives. I don't know why the country singer didn't warn people about the shootings because many thought it was fireworks. If he would have done so instead of run off, he could have saved people. Also, Aldean showed up on a alt leftish hate group called SNL and should have done tributes to the victims in Vegas.
