    Downtown Vancouver rocked by Stanley-Cup post game riot

    Downtown Vancouver rocked by Stanley Cup post-game riot

    VANCOUVER -- Angry Canucks fans are on a rampage, smashing windows, looting and torching cars and dumpsters on the streets of downtown Vancouver.

    More than three hours after the Stanley Cup final loss, police are moving up Howe St. toward the crowd massed at the Chapters book store on Howe and Robson.

    They are very gradually pushing the crowd North up Howe.

    Police spokeswoman Jana McGuiness warned earlier that police are about to escalate their response.

    She said they will be igniting flash-bangs, which make loud noises and spray.

    "What we're doing right now is bringing in hundreds of police officers."

    The message is, you need to leave."


    Yes, I'm going to make this political. What is it with blue cities and liberal bastions rioting immediately after championship games? And usually, it's the winning team that riots, which is odder even.

    And yes, it does seem to follow certain cities with particularly pent-up angst. And they tend to be among the bluest out there.

    I watched that live for an hour or so last night... What do you mean by bluest?

    I think it's ridiculous, but seeing how the police handled a random riot, I don't see them doing very well when the apocalypse hit.

    That and the interview with the chief of police in Vancouver, he must have said "we want people to be safe and get home" like 20 times in the 5 mins he was talking...

    No matter how hard they try, the Canadiens will never upstage Los Angeles. That city riots when they WIN!
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Then why does this always seem to happen in LA, Boston, Detroit, Chicago, DC.....?

    Didn't happen in Dallas or San Antonio. Not Pittsburgh, which does have a strong conservative contingent mixed in. Same for Indianapolis, St. Louis, Tampa, ......

    Every city has ther hanful of thugs that take the risk of wreaking havoc when "opportunity" arises. It have nothing--I mean nothing--to do with lean.
    I can't believe someone is asinine enough to make this political. Jeepers.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    It's not like it's really unique to his posting history.

    Apparently, flipping over cars, setting them on fire, and grabbing some TVs out of the storefront window is quite the way to celebrate an NBA championship or whatnot for you guys.
