I was right in the middle of the WTO riot in Seattle in 1999 with my wife and kids. Purely by accident. One minute we go into a restaurant to get some lunch, an hour later there's cops in riot gear everywhere and chasing protesters down the street. It was a pretty weird experience. I had been to some protests before but never with rubber bullets and tear gas being used.

Oh, this reminds me that I've actually seen a small riot before and had to breathe some tear gas. I was a bystander, but wind blew the gas around.

There's already a Wikipedia page for this riot: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Vancouver_Riot

A man was taken to hospital with a head injury. Police say several fans wearing canucks attire poured 7 jerry cans filled with gasoline over a black Honda Civic parked in front of the stadium. The vehicle was said to have Boston Bruins flags surrounding the car.

This was a great playoffs by far the most non wings games I have watch in any playoffs ever. Yeah it sucks the Red Wings couldent win it but I was very impressed how they came back from down 3-0 games 4,5, and 6 were some of my favorite games. I can't wait for nhl network to start replaying all the series especially the sharks series so I can watch 4,5,6 again.
