I'm sick of that douchebag in the blue taunting police and beating people.

If I was there, I'd make a citizens arrest and hand him over.

The police/people overseeing the viewing party at georgia and hamilton are partly to blame for this. I know people are responsible for their own actions, but it was WAY TOO OVERCROWDED!!!! I have been there for the other games and it wasn't never that bad. They should have stopped letting in people way sooner. Even before the game started people could barely move and were arguing when people shoved through each other.

At the 2nd intermission I left. I knew it was going to get brutal. Edited after removing unconfirmed sources about the viaduct incident... :( People in the ER, I hope you make it out ok.

Well, Price on 1040 said there was a 17yr old kid from the Fraser Valley who was severely hurt and his status as of now is unknown

These are the worst kinds of riots. I mean that they don't have any purpose. Its just over a game and not something like an expression of rage something serious like the Rodney King riots or the weekly riots in Greece started by anarchists.

Pretty stupid to assume that means dead.

Almost as stupid as these idiots I am watching on TV...

I guess that would be unconfirmed sources. I heard critical condition awhile ago, but then other people said the person who fell from the viaduct died. I wasn't trying to assume someone died. Either way, very sad.

It sucks that 100,000 people go down there to have fun, and 99,900 of them are going home peacefully, but the 100 or so are being absolute douchenozzles and ruin it for everyone.

It's just something you don't want to jump to conclusions about. Until you see an official report.

This is so damn embarrassing! Why are they ruining our beautiful city? :( Why couldn't the fans be more mature about this situation. It's not like we don't have any chance of making it into the playoffs again.
