One of the manny unwritten rules you learn early on as a photojournalist is to be prepared but to expect the unexpected. Guess I'm still learning. I was just finishing my edit from the Canucks Hockey team's loss in the Stanley Cup final and was packing up my camera equipment and laptop when word started to spread of a riot. At first I dismissed the idea believing the rioters were just a small handful and the police would have them under control quickly. Looking back now I guess I was as naive as manny others in Vancouver in my belief that a riot wouldn't happen. (John Lehmann/The Globe and Mail/John Lehmann/The Globe and Mail)

Crown lays more charges in connection with Stanley Cup riots Add to ...

The Crown has approved charges against another of Vancouver’s alleged Stanley Cup rioters.

A 17-year-old male - who can’t be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act - has been charged with one count of participating in a riot and three counts of arson damaging property during the June 15 incident.

In B.C., police must recommend charges and forward their files to the Crown for approval. Vancouver police have recommended 215 charges against 80 alleged rioters.

The Crown has now approved riot charges against 28 people.

None of those investigated by Vancouver police have been convicted for their role in the riot.

The police department has been much criticized because it didn’t forward its first major batch of case files to the Crown until Oct. 31 - more than four months after the riot that left millions of dollars in damage.
