A Facebook event has also been created to help deal with the aftermath of the riot. The page asks for pledges to go into the city centre and help to clean up. More than 10,000 people have signed up to get involved.
Concerned Canadians have turned to social media to name and shame people behind the riots in Vancouver. A "riot criminal list" was created on the Tumblr photo blog site to gather images of those claimed to be involved. It gathered video of the ongoing trouble as well as pictures of individuals breaking shop windows, helping to flip cars and attacking riot police. Dozens of pictures were posted within hours of it being set up.
Similar pages on Facebook have attracted thousands of supporters.
Identify Vancouver rioters: Facebook and Tumblr groups set up.
Vancouver Police Department have put out a call for people with photos and videos of the incidents to hang on to them so they can be used to try and identify people later, and at least two Facebook pages and a Tumblr page has been set up to do just that.
One Facebook page is called Vancouver Riot Pics: Post Your Photos, www.facebook.com... and another is called Report Canucks RIOT Morons. www.facebook.com... The first group already has almost 10,000 people and both are growing rapidly. Another page has also been set up on Tumblr called Vancouver 2011 Riot Criminal List. vancityriotcriminals.tumblr.com...

You don't need to be ashamed just because some a##holes decided to use the loss as a way to to destroy and steal personal property. We have the same kind of a##holes in the states! You can't control some people who think they have the right to act like spoiled brats. I hope they catch these idiots, fine them, give them some time in jail to think how stupid their behavior was, and than have them do some hard physical labor work in the community, like maybe cleaning up the city and public restrooms.
I've had many visits to Canada and met some of the friendliest people there! Canada, you're a'ok in my book.

Clearly, people go with the intent to riot.
I would like to see blow ups of all the people who can be seen, and it published. Then people can name the idiots, and hopefully some of it will lead to charges.
