    One thing to clarify, 95% of the a-hole that are rioting and not Habs fans they are just using the victory as an excuse to burn police cars and steel from the stores on Ste-Catherine street.

I used to be against the use of tasers, now i'm starting to change my thinking about them!

    What an embarrassment for Montreal!!! These disgracious incidents will probably be replayed all over North America today!

    Doc

    I agree this is another embarassement for Montreal. However, I saw a report that the people who started this were there specifcally to start this so-called riot. In fact, it appears to have been staged as the there were people there who were filming the rioters and were obviously together. None of the initial rioters appear to have been attending the game. Look for burning cop cars to show up on Youtube. Personally, I would like to see a video of these idiots being clubbed senseless by the cops. BTW, the real story here is what happened to so-called preparedness the cops claimed they had for such an event.

    Unhappy Rioting in Canada

    Montreal has a history of riots: anti-conscription,St.Jean Baptiste, Police Strike in 1969, St.Leonard, various labour strikes, Maurice Richard in 1955,to name a few. Provincially you also had the Asbestos strike in 1949 amongst others.

    Calgary has the "Red Mile" when the Flames are in the play-offs, Edmonton when the Oilers went to the finals had disturbances. Regina and Winnipeg had violent riots in the 1930's - labour.

    Just a short list.

    Disgusting....

    Don't understand why wins are celebrated this way... and it certainly isn't limited to Montreal...

    It simply isn't necessary. You don't see this after EB wins a ping pong tournament....

    Do you always put everybody in the same bag?

    Do you really imagine if 25 000 fans start rioting. Montreal would look like Bagdad!!!

    It's alway the same. A few trouble maker start the shit and it catches on like frenzy on a few idiots.

    When you hear of cocktails molotov, you know that it was planned.

    No city is free of the kind of events.

    The cops should maybe learn to be there but in a discreet way.

    Times are changing.

    We live in the Era of facebook and youtube. It's an event. Ugly but still something to tell stories about for this virtual generation.

    I am not sure a discrete police presence is the solution, probably more police, a lot more, early on. Also closing a large perimeter to cars would maybe help, avoiding that cars be stuck in the crowds.

    I too feel ashamed of how those neanderthals behaved. I can understand those who wish the Habs lose the next round... (sadly).

    It is quite obvious from the images we saw last night on TV and from the police reports and various news reports this morning that last night's events were not a riot by the habs fans but rather a small group of young idiots who decided to take out their anger for the MTL police on all the cop cars they could get their hands on.

    If it had been a riot, a real riot which is basically a huge crowd (like 20 000 people getting out of the Bell center) that bashes everything on their path (like store fronts, civilian cars and other public property), then you could blame the Habs fans or the hype behind the Canadien this year.
