Personally, I'd have been all for shooting the rioters. Not all of them, just one every few seconds until the crowd realized they were going to die for a hockey game if they continued acting like animals. Nothing says "behave yourself" like a bullet to the head.

They were overturning and burning cars, beating people, looting and burning businesses. You don't tear gas that level of violence. You kill it.

For those that dont know, understand, or care about hockey, Vancouver is generally upset about hockey because their team joined the NHL in 1970 and they have never won the Stanley Cup ever.

On top of that, this is the second time Vancouver failed to win the Stanley Cup in a game 7.

Higher on top of that, Vancouver actually made a run at it being the #1 seed in the league.

At the tippy top of that, this is their 40 year anniversary in the league.

 

monkiga, my hats off to you.  Being a NYR fan, we were rooting for your team.  Hopefully your team wont have to tie our 54 year pity party.

Freaking pigs.   It's also not a Canadian or American thing or any specific country.  Alcohol + people + emotions + mob mentality can = rioting over anything, anywhere in the world.

You really think they are hockey fan?!  Next time I will ask them to pick a jersey from one of the team in MLB or NBA before they start a riot!!!

I'm in Edmonton, but these images of the riot after Vancouver lost make me ashamed right now to be Canadian. This is absolutely disgusting that people did this. Why? Its a goddamn hockey game, nothing more!

 

And yes, it was a small group that did this, but a city is judged based on its loudest group. And right now, and for a long time, Vancouver is going to be judged by this group.
