Blood in our streets. I saw people on the ground, bleeding. Shattered glass everywhere. Police cars set alight. Major bridges are now closed, preventing public access into the downtown core. Transit is plugged up, theres no way out. More police and fire crews are arriving, from the suburbs, but again, it seems too late. And as I write this, the sun has just set. Vancouver, what a disgrace

Boston won 4 games out of 7.
Boston also won championships in all 4 major sports in 7 years.
Who knew modern Canadians had it in ‘em?
I get the feeling it was all planned, win or lose.
I wonder if people who know the people in the photos will turn them in. Morons. Especially the one lighting the police car. They caught him “In flagrante delicto”, so to speak.
Well, they are just upset about Tory cuts to health care....
Now playing: “White Riot” by The Clash.
So much for moving to Canada.
Maybe we should make Canada annex Detroit as punishment.
Alberta is much better, than the rest of Canada.
Let white people burn their own neighborhoods. See if we care.
Heh heh. I’m ready for the next Canadian who talks down on the USA.
Goes to show that riots are not the result of any ethnic,racial,or religious “injustice”—they are simply the result of either mischievous or malevolent throwbacks looking for any excuse to loot,burn,steal,rape,rob or murder.
IOW Alinsky’s armies.
I was expecting this to be satire with pictures of morose Canadians milling about, but I found other sites talking about it. Yikes. Just imagine if they had a soccer team.
Vancouver is lost. We need to withdraw now.
Those riots are nothing compared to what we’re going to see here this summer.
It's all on the Pats now.
They now represent the longest championship drought among the 4 major sports teams.
Way to go Bruins!
We’ll see what happens today in Dallas, huge crowds downtown 100+ degree temperatures, busses and trains overflowing...could be a very interesting day here.
Boston did something Vanc. couldn’t do: win a road game in the finals. Had Vancouver won either game 3, game 4, or game 6 at the TD Garden, they would have been hoisting the Cup instead.
Indeed, Boston domination this past decade.
Vanc. also had riots when NY Rangers beat Canucks in S Cup in 94. I saw footage on World’s Wildest Police Videos. Remember seeing footage of riots/burning cars in Oakland when Raiders lost Super Bowl. Rioting/looting went on in Montreal when Canadians WON. I’d like to hope that most Canadians aren’t
like this, only a “few knuckleheads” as Menino would say.
It does give them a bad name, esp. the footage I was seeing. What if they’d WON? This was Canuckistan supposedly taking out their frustrations at losing (”Boston sucks!”, went some chants) Would it have been jubilant looting instead?
There were a couple fatalities related to Boston team wins/celebration in past decade, true. But any vandalism, etc. was kept to a minimum. I think I heard some people tried to overturn a bus in Bos., etc.
