UPDATE***: Okay, so this video was all over fb and other social media, along with pictures for the past hour. However, messages/statuses are being passed around that these are not of riots from TODAY these are old videos of something different...anyways here was the video, and this is the message dispayed not on #riots on facebook:  "

FAKE VIDEO going viral stating Miami ‪#‎riots‬ -- It is an old video of Stanley Cup ‪#‎riot‬ in Vancouver http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBtSN7-zoj0&feature=youtu.be

"

Nothing on MSNBC or even FOX NEWS. What is your source? No pictures, it didn't happen.

Where are you seeing this, Amy? Because I have access to CNNs live feeds for affiliates across the country, and the only protest they've put out was a peaceful march in San Francisco. APVideo has nothing either, nor does FOX. The AP newswire has not published any additional urgents since the verdict, and they are quite good at publishing everything.

I'm just not finding anything about actual riots.

I'd be interested in a source...the media has been anxiously awaiting riots to cover, and all I've seen is a peaceful march in San Fran on CNN.

I'm hearing a lot of different things about rioting on social media and forums like this one but nothing concrete or confirmed.
