I watched those videos in the wrong order, and it looks like black jacket guy is just trying to pick a fight with some passer-by. Then I watched the first video and saw that passer-by (KTFO) guy was trashing the car.
Still doesn't make it right that he got KTFO. The guy who KTFO'd him was probably just trying to sucker-punch someone.
Here's a better vid showing black jacket guy trying to stop the trashing of the car. Dude has some serious cajones.
Something we're going to be seeing from now on - in situations like this in first-world countries, everyone has a phone with video, or at the very least a camera. There are going to be TONS of arrests made from these videos. I wonder if that will have any affect on people committing casual crimes like this?
So, after a little rioting himself he suddenly got religion? Interesting.
Here's a bit about identifying these schmucks/canucks:
Chris Schneider, a sociology professor at the University of British Columbia who specializes in criminology and mob behaviour, followed the riots through social media, keeping an eye out for seemingly incriminating posts and pictures. There were a lot of both.
"In a way, the police don't have to do much of anything … there's so much data out there," Schneider said.
"These people are going to get nailed. The police are going to have to make an example of them."
Schneider said a mob mentality, where people let personal responsibility slip, took over on downtown streets as well as online.
He kept screen-captures of people using social media to organize riot activity, and to identify what stores had been broken into. He also witnessed many bragging about committing criminal acts in Facebook posts — many of which have been turned into image files and shared online.
Schneider said this publicly shared information will likely become police evidence.
He expects the investigation into the riots will be "cumbersome" for police, due to the sheer amount of information they need to collect and verify, but said it's important the police don't let rioters off the hook.
If they're perceived as soft, Schneider said, there's a risk this behavior will happen again the next time the Canucks fight deep into the playoffs.
Watch the 2nd one again. The sucker punch is delivered while talking on the cell phone That's talent.
I'm not sure why you labeled the black jacket guy as a douche. He's got a lot of guts standing up against those dudes and almost took a skate board in the face. No one else in the crowd would stand up to them.
I imagine the other pic you posted of him trying to Olley into the flames of a burning car was photo shopped by someone trying to harm his reputation?
