@UpstateCait: I’m not a Vancouver bee but GOOD GOD I was horrified by this. I would be so mortified if I were from Vancouver, and was “represented” by these fools!! eessshh!!

It makes me absolutely sick to see the images from the riot.  Not only the property damage but hearing things about people being injured.  They said one police officer had around sixteen stitches because someone hit him with a brick.  I just don’t even understand why they thought this was logical at all. I also can’t imagine what it would have been like to walk out and see your car on fire or walk out and be attacked.

In the UK,a lot of people in any sort of riot are usually out to cause trouble,as in, they had it organised regardless of the outcome. Those people are idiots.

I just feel for the people caught up in it all,it must be pretty scary stuff to be in the middle of it all,

I don’t understand this behaviour. It’s a fucking game, I agree. I mean give me a break. It’s not worth hurting other people over, seriously!

I’m from Vancouver and I’m not ashamed in the least. A few fools act out and y’all think I’m now embarrassed to call this home. Not a chance. I think the rioting idiots are just that but to say or even suggest that we’re represented by them is just silly.

Moreover I’m more embarassed at the idiots who think the Canucks let us down or embarrassed us. Are you kidding? They went all the way to to finals! With all the refs against us, with all the hate from other cities, with all the inguries we encountered you don’t think those boys left it all out there? I certainly do! It just wasn’t enough this time around. Those boys gave it all they had it just wasn’t enough. I’m so proud and I still love this city.

@mandb122- we had a march over here a few months ago which ended up turning into a riot,one of my friends was working in an ambulance which rioters were trying to tip over because they were treating people from an opposing march.he said it was one of the mosy genuinely scary moments of his life an thought he was going to get killed that day!

Why they let two opposing,organised marches happen on the same day is beyond belief!

I’m not from Vancouver, but I am from BC and I’m totally horrified and disgusted with what happened. I’m ashamed and embarrassed too. I just can’t believe that people would do something like that. Those poor people who had their property damaged or were injured, all because of a few trouble makers.

I’ve been in large crowds in Vancouver and Victoria before, and it can be kind of scary. You never know what people are capable of when they’re in big groups like that. Mob mentality is a frightening thing.

@kimbo89: No, it doesn’t make sense at all to let those happen on the same day.  I just don’t get acting like that.  And actually, I’m really surprised after seeing those videos that no deaths have been reported.

I’ve lived in Vancouver for a few years but not anymore. I really don’t think these riots were a result of the game. Honestly, I think the “Hooligans” as the mayor called them were going to riot like idiots no matter the outcome of the game. I don’t know if you watched much of the news coverage of the riots but there is a group of “anarchists” that were in black bandanas organized to hit the Hudson Bay Company and they have looted the store in the past. 

What bothered me the most were all the idiots that were eager to tell the news crews how disgusted they were but they stayed out in the streets for a few hours. They needed to go home and let the police focus on the rioters and not have to worry about people being picture or twitter happy to be out in the danger.

I thought people in Boston rioted too. Just silly.
