Video of Man Severely Beaten by Vancouver Mob

Vancouver was rocked by riots yesterday as thousands of “hockey fans” went berserk in celebration of their team’s loss. I put the term in quotes because it’s clear from various reports that Black Bloc was there specifically to cause mayhem and many of the people on the street were young hipsters – who I doubt were at a hockey game.

During the riot a few good Samaritans tried to stop the mob from looting a building. One member of the enraged mob eventually attacked one of these people with a stick. When the good Samaritan got the upper hand and defended himself the mob descended and brutally beat him. Hard to watch but it has to be seen:

The crowd is not your friend and they are not rational. If riots break out in an area leave. If you are in your home barricade it and prepare to defend your property. But unarmed in a country like Canada which looks down on self-defense it was madness to confront this crowd. Brave and laudable, but still madness.

Here in America things aren’t much different. Even people with carry permits cannot face down mobs like this out in the open. Get indoors and then do everything you can to keep your shelter secure. That’s the only way to survive a riot.

    I was shocked when I heard about this, but this is the first time I’ve seen the footage. There was also an incident of rioters overturning cars, and when one man tried to protect his truck, he was beaten. I haven’t seen that footage, either.

    I hope that LE uses these video clips to identify vandals, looters, and those involved in the beatings, and prosecutes them all to the fullest extent of the law.

    So much for Canada being such a “peaceful” nation… if they get all riled up like this because a team lost a game, one can hardly consider them more “enlightened” than the US.

    The cops are blaming it on “anarchists” or whatever.

    It’s drunken idiots… just like the soccer riots in the UK and Europe. Just like the idiots who caused trouble when the Pats won the Superbowl in 2001, 2003, & 2005. Just a bunch of drunken losers. (See that? You’re right… drunks really do suck.)
