Time had ran out...
Still proud of our boys...
Then mayhem struck...
|2 Police cars set on fire by idiotic individuals|
Once we got back to our apartment we turned on the news, images started pouring in of crazed individuals making a mess of our city. No longer was our mind on the hard fought game instead it was strictly focused on the mayhem that had befallen our beautiful
. I cannot express in words my absolute disappointment with what I was seeing. Individuals vandalizing and burning cars, garbage cans, and porta-potties... Fights erupting between fans, between fans and police officers... Windows being smashed, planters being destroyed, stores being looted... These are the types of things you see in the movies not outside your front door. Vancouver
The site of the Community Centre in front of our place getting newspaper bins thrown through its windows, riot police marching down the street towards our building with a loud speaker informing the crowd to disperse within one minute was completely surreal. I was overcome with a feeling of utter helplessness, I just wanted to scream at these people. At one point I actually got worried that these nutcases may start to break the windows in our building. As I sat there glued to the television seeing the faces of these people behaving like morons I could not help but wonder, “what is your mother going to think when she sees her sons face plastered all over the news for behaving like an idiotic criminal?” Do these rioters have no conscience? Do they not think that they are going to get caught? As I always say it all comes down to respect, and in this case the lack there of. These idiots do not respect themselves so by no means are they going to respect the beautiful city we call home or its citizens.
And just to make it clear, these WERE NOT TRUE VANCOUVER CANUCKS FANS!!! These were degenerate, ridiculous excuses for human beings with the soul intention of causing destruction. No fan comes prepared with Molotov-cocktails and black ski masks to watch a hockey game. These malicious intentions along with the drunk individuals caught up in the action (thinking it funny to see such mayhem) turned the city into a war zone. Thanks to these individuals our city has been tarnished, our game has been tarnished and our reputation as Canadians has been tarnished. It is the actions of a select few cheered on by many that has now turned June 15, 2011 into a dark day in
’s history.... Vancouver
My final words are:
I hope you idiots all get caught,
I hope you idiots all get fined,
I hope you idiots all get sentenced,
I hope you idiots all get paraded through the downtown centre on a chain gang so you can be shamed.~ April
