Did You Know About Kinder, Gentler Crowd Control?

Did you know about "kinder, gentler" crowd control?

When I think of crowd control I tend to think of barricades and men with sticks. But there is a kinder, gentler form of crowd control that I never realized or even thought of as controlling crowds. I have often seen the stanchions and velvet ropes at theaters, concerts and sporting events. This seems like the nice way to shuttle crowds where you want them to go and also add a nicer look and feel to an event. I am sure there are times and places that call for more stringent crowd control but I hope to stick to the events that have the kinder, gentler forms.
