This is what happens in Vancouver when we lose at hockey: 100,000 drunks ripping up the streets.
Just wait until the revolution comes here!
PS: watch the video in the link for some awesome video. It looks like a zombie film with all of the fire/crowded streets/riot police/looting/etc.
This is why I love my province

So let me guess this straight. The cops moved AWAY from the crowds as they approached? WTF? Im going to assume that the Vancouver Police Service does not train their officers in crowd control or that their training is heavily outdated. Real cops once practiced the hands off approach with a riot from the 1960s - early 1990s and it led to the LA Riots of 1992 - the worst riot in American history all because the crowds were emboldened by the lack of action from the LAPD who quite literally ran away. Police 101 says never show cowardice in front of a mob, it will only make them even more violent and cause even more property damage and looting.
