Rioting idiots, not just an American phenomenon

Seen the Vancouver riots? The fire starts around a minute in. More popping up across the net as we go.  (for those not usually sports fans, yes, this is over losing the Stanley Cup)

  • I didn't know people thought rioting was just an American thing, lol, seems kind of ignorant to think it is only Americans that riot.....

    Oh I know... I was watching it live. They were classless inside too... booing and tossing stuff on the ice.
    Talk about sore losers & poor sportsmanship. Pathetic really!!

  • People can be so classless sometimes. IT"S A GAME! It's not life or death! Why destroy something that doesn't belong to you over a GAME!

  • I just watched a couple of the other videos and can't stop thinking...what if I was in one of the portilets (sp) that they were knocking over, what if that was my car, my business. Everything that I had worked for someone else was destroying just because they were mad about losing a stupid game. That's worst then someone breaking into a store and robbing it! At least the robbers were going to use what they stole. Riots are simply about destroying something that belongs to someone else because they're mad.

  • LMAO... and the vote down would seem to indicate that some of that poor sportsmanship has carried into today, even here on CM!!! LOL

    So true baconbits... it's just a game.... not worth wrecking something someone else worked so hard for... no matter where you live or who wins & looses! It's nuts.
