Let me get this right...your hockey team loses in the final game of the Stanley Cup Finals and people decide that a riot is in order? Give me a break! With all the legitimate injustices in the world around us you would think that there would be other issues to revolt against. Cars were overturned and set on fire, including 2 police cars...stores were looted...and get this...Vancouver General Hospital officials said there were two major traumas, three stabbing victims and one head injury. Really?3 stabbings? C'mon folks, seriously....it's JUST A GAME!
I don't want to condemn all of Vancouver as I think it's a great city and I believe the vast majority of it's residents are level headed individuals who wouldn't think of ever acting this way, but those who partook in this riot should be ashamed. Since when does a sporting event loss justify an attempt on human life?!? The damage will likely be in the millions, but the actions of a few senseless individuals has given Vancouver a poor view that it doesn't deserve.
So now I ask...if you were in the general area during the riots, were you prepared? Did you have a way of letting your loved ones know you were OK? Did you have a route planned to get around the riot zone to get home? Think about it...it can hit the fan at any time in any place without warning.
