Where did the story say anything about "urban" youth or their education level. Your assumptions betray your prejudice.

I also hope that young person is o.k. I am embarrassed I did not say that first.

REALLY?? - A 2 line "story"!! I am pissed, I bought 4 tickets to this show for my kids, and they say there was a fight before the show, so they did not even go in. They were smart enough to leave, as it turns out with a shooting after the show. Where were the cops? $86 bucks wasted, because people do not know how to act, and the police cannot contain them. We will NOT spend anymore $ on events in Chattanooga.

Since music is a subset of "the arts" & since anything within the City limits connected with art in any way is boderline sacred territory, we have a duty to our Ciy: perpetually pretend that all is well at every artistic/musical venue in the City, that no one was actually shot (or was ever shot any time in the past) at a within-City music event, and continue to praise & thank your beneficent betters for all the Public Art they see fit to bestow upon us....

Well what do you expect when you get a bunch of these gang banging thugs together? I heard an adult over a loud speaker saying, "y'all shouldn't be fighting each other. Y'all need to be attacking the other color." As for the cops, the city's numbers are down...there were only so many cops that could respond and still leave some protection for the rest of the city. There were at least 30 down there. I for one am so sick of the racist venom that comes out of my own people's mouths against the white men.
