I love how half of the people that were actually involved weren't even hockey fans, they just wanted to steal electronics and other schwag. Good times.
That's how most bigger riots in North America are. In the LA riots here in the States, it seemed everyone and their brother hopped in their cars and trucks to go down and steal some TVs, electronics, furniture, etc. Race was the scapegoat, but 99.9% of people that participated just wanted to steal sh*t and tear things up.
