Nice inning.

I wouldn't call it a riot either, but a cop did get injured due to a brick thrown at him and others threw bottles, bricks and rocks at cops. Hell, one even threw a gas canister back @ the cops. Also, personal property and storefronts were damaged. I just don't understand that mentality. OMG OUR TEAM LOST, LET'S GO OUT AND DESTROY OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. Derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..

It was a tiny % of the people who hit the streets though, and the police reaction was very measured considering the stupidity displayed.  That said, I have to agree with some people who say that if you go out dressed in full riot gear, you're kinda begging for something to happen.  I don't think anyone would've thrown a brick at a cop in regular uniform.  But who really knows.
