Cops Oblivious to Astroworld Deaths as They Recorded Travis Scott Performing

Members of The Houston Police Department calmly pulled out their cellphones and recorded Travis Scott’s performance at the Astroworld festival … nearly a half hour after it was declared a mass casualty event.

It’s a significant footage, because it looks like cops were unaware of the dire situation behind them, and if they didn’t know … how would Travis?

The Fire Chief called the calamity a “mass casualty event” at 9:38. Now check out the photo (above) of cops shooting cellphone video — the time stamp shows it was snapped at 9:57 … 19 minutes later.
