Many of the "civil disturbances" on that wiki page are click-able and you can read up on them. Google is your friend for the ones that aren't.
Don't forget to go to the footnoted source sites for more information on the click-able items.
I've always found that doing the research for myself helps me to learn more. Don't you agree?

There have been problems in cities after the home team won, super bowl, world series, NCAA national championship. With the way people are thinking now this is just another "big game". You put 100,000 people on the street and all it takes is 5% to cause a really big mess. So to think that we will not have a problem in some cities is thinking the best of people. To think that we may have problems in some cities is prudent. I think that I will stay home that night.
