Stanley Cup Riots by David Lang

Defgrip contributor David Lang has a very impressive photo series on his site from the riots that went down in Vancouver yesterday after the Vancouver Canucks lost the final game of the Stanley Cup Finals to the Boston Bruins.

“On the 15th of June 2011, the Vancouver Canucks hockey team lost 4-0 to the Boston Bruins in a much-anticipated final round of the Stanley Cup 2011 series. Riots broke out quickly as the Vancouver Police Department struggled to control the crowds. People were injured, cars were overturned and set alight, and shops were broken into and looted. It was gut-wrenching to see this deplorable mob behaviour cast an ugly mark on the night and the city.”

Check all the photos out here.

    Maybe the radiation from Japan had something to do with it.
