Mail Online UK ^ | 6-18-10

Posted on 06/18/2010 1:45:33 PM PDT by kirbyu

Dozens of arrest were made as troublemakers in several locations threw rocks and bottles, set cars on fire, got into fights, and in some cases harassed motorists trying to leave the area, police said. ‘As the crowds left the area, we had some groups that decided to celebrate irresponsibly,’ LAPD spokeswoman Mary Grady said.

The sport is no more a hoodlum sport than other pro sports. These people were just criminal idiots looking for an excuse.

Its L.A. A place where "fans" riot when they win. They also riot when they lose. They riot when they tie. We expect it.

Only two people were arrested and I hope they were the ones who smashed that poor guy's windshield.

Who do you mean by “we?”
Interesting how you just signed up a couple of days ago and now posting articles.... oooohhhhh.....

Yes, let’s rely on media sensationalism for the truth. What I saw last night was tame. Why shouldn’t people celebrate a victory?

There was a huge police presence. I saw them shoving and grabbing people for no reason I could see.

There were some jerks set a car on fire, etc., but most wanted to celebrate in a happy way.

Exactly. They would have done the same thing if the Lakers had lost, and the media would have reported “fans letting their disappointment show in inappropriate ways.”

Last night, I was thinking of one of the biggest, most violent sports riots in U.S. history... the Detroit Tigers fans, back in the '70s or '80s, I think. Does anyone else remember?

Boy when we celebrated the Yankee championships in the late 70’s we ran on the field, grapped some turf, did some cartwheels and hugged each other....What a difference....

Did you see riots for the Stanley Cup winner?

These are people that are looking for an excuse to destroy and loot..

This is the society that Thomas Dewy liberal education has built... no one can read or write, but they can all express their feelings and frustration.. IT IS ALL ABOUT ME

I’m with you. Seemed like a pretty mild “riot.” The press just wants to sell papers.

Dig the tagline. Congrats!

Thank you. I saw a couple of dudes working out in the park while I was walking today. One was waving his Lakers hat at passing traffic, so he and I and his bud high-fived. I guess that was our “riot.” Haha... too bad the news people didn’t see it.

Now THERE’s a surprise - not. LA joins Detroit and Chicago in the “celebrate with class” losers’ bracket.

I love my Spurs and my San Antonio. 4 championships, no riots.

25 mm M242 Chain Gun, followed up by 7.62mm work to take care of any stragglers. Snipers would clean up the crumbs. Leave the bodies in the streets for three days pour encourager des autres.

One time would be enough to end these riots forevermore.

LOL. Keep telling yourself that. There's a reason basketball is called "ghettoball".

Yikes! Detroit. I seem to remember flashes of overturned police cars and streets on fire, but I guess that could be any city after a play-off game. Usually somewhere on Martin Luther King Drive.

The new police chief, though a friend and supporter of the last great chief, Daryl Gates, is himself not nearly so "law & order" when it comes to knocking heads together and suppressing the law breakers. But then this is the result of having a mayor, city council and other local worthies who will pull out the race card at the first opportunity.

From what little I saw, the cops were far too easy on these jackasses. They act the way they do because they know they can.
