STANLEY CUP RIOTS
 

When the Vancouver Canucks lost to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup playoffs in 2011, hockey fans, encouraged by the mayor to convene in the downtown area to watch the game on jumbotron screens, started smashing windows, looting stores and lighting cars on fire. The chaos was oddly celebratory, as only a small number of people in the downtown area were actively rioting. Most cheered them on amidst a party-like atmosphere,  recording the events for social media.
