A disgusting display
Minutes after the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup Final, rioting erupted in the downtown core.
Mindless morons, immature punks patrolled the streets, lighting cars on fire, breaking store windows and attacking fellow pedestrians. There were an estimated one hundred and fifty thousand people watching the game from the streets, and the police obviously had no way of containing them.
This is my short open letter to the idiots that felt like the loss of a Stanley Cup meant rioting.
After celebrating the Gold Medal one short year ago, the city of Vancouver had never looked better on a world stage. People from far and wide were raving about the city, it was a must see destination. In one short evening that image was tarnished forever. In a complete mimicry of the 1994 Vancouver riots, worthless pieces of trash began violently rioting throughout downtown Vancouver, proving, perhaps once and for all, that the city of Vancouver doesn't deserve a Stanley Cup.
I for one am now glad the Bruins won the cup. Anybody that acts like the fans did tonight deserves any amount of success. All i can hope is that these pin heads will be rounded up and herded into prisons like the sheep they are.
Why loot a Shoppers Drug Mart? Why loot a Chapters? One man rushed into a London Drugs and emerged with an armful of Pringles containers. That, my friends, is called looting for the sake of looting. It's called mob mentality. My one question to all these hardcore gangsters who decided to light cars on fire and overturn trucks. Why hide your face from cameras? Why attack people from behind? Because you are pathetic cowards who at the end of the night will return to your mothers basement suite while you upload pictures of these riots to facebook and comment, "LOL i was there! I so looted. I'm such a rebel!" I hope you don't mess your underpants too much when the police come knocking to give you your just desserts.
Fuck you and the horses you rode in on. You're a disgrace to your city, your province, and your hockey team. The city of Vancouver needs to grow the fuck up. And I mean now.
