‘I am truly ashamed,' says teen involved in Vancouver riot,

‘I am truly ashamed,' says teen involved in Vancouver riot,

While Nathan Kotylaka, once-rising star on Canada’s junior water polo team who was caught on camera as he appeared to hold a lighter to a rag stuffed into the gas tank of a Vancouver police car in the violent aftermath of the Canucks’ Game 7 loss to the Boston Bruins made an emotional public apology over the weekend for his role in the Vancouver Stanley Cup chaos, one is left to wonder why the G20 riot organizers who exhorted the crowd to violence on that fateful Saturday morning in Allan Gardens one year ago remain unrepentant? Do they not share responsibility? As vandals face their justice, G20 riot leaders remain conspicuous by their absence!

While Vancouver's Police Chief may not have prepared as well as Chief Bill Blair did, Vancouverites are to be commended for taking their images that separate the innocent bystander from the rioter for there’s nothing illegal about being in the streets but not when you are trying to set taxpayer property on fire!
