Write something up.

I'm proud of the people in Vancouver who are trying to
trump shameful stupidity with kind words.

Which of the two contrasting sets of images get more attention from the international media? The damage has been irreparably done to Vancouver's image.

A great reaction to what's happened.

Well done Vancouver!

Seen this bad behaviour on the t.v. news down here in Oz and it reminded me of soccer hooligans doing the same thing because there team didn't win, just bad sports i say :-).

Without good people, who would clean up after the knuckleheads?

Prior to last week, I had never heard anything but positive things about Vancouver. People I know LOVE Vancouver. Unfortunately, that all changed so there is some work to do.

The thing that gets me about the riots is all the people posting on facebook, reveling in what they've done. The stupidity boggles the mind.

I love the picture, and I'm glad to see people taking their city back.

May calmer minds prevail.

@DSWS Such a good point. Reported yesterday there's a website that provides a 360 panorama view that puts you "right in the middle of the riots." wtf? Exploitation much? It's sickening.
@Alistair I agree.
@Windsmoke Pathetic isn't it?
@CC I've never been to Vancouver but my friends love it.
@Tim I agree; so mind-boggling!
@Munk Always.

I never understood how people get so worked up over these things. Good to see something positive take the spotlight after.

Vancouver will come out of this with pure class, it is how you all handle things up North.

Love this. There's also a picture from the next day of a bunch of apology notes taped to a police car. I don't understand the impetus to burn something because I was disappointed (otherwise I would have burned my website a thousand times over).

I'm amazed at the ability of people to swing in the worst and best directions humanity allows. But grateful for the desire many of us feel to make gestures to right wrongs.
