Angry BMW M5 falls to the wrath of Vancouver rioters

Didn't know people were this bloody uncivilized in Canada.India is way better I guess. And that poor M5 , my only thought was why didn't the woman just get in that M5 , turn on that V10 engine do a donut and run over all those idiotsPlease be warned this video is very disturbing to watch.

Buddy - people are uncivilized everywhere (more so when they are intoxicated fans of a losing team)- its only the Indians who get noticed by the one eyed media.

In US / Canada - its the strict enforcement that keeps the crazy people in check - remember what happened after hurricane Katrina hit? all the looting and lawlessness?

Wow! What hypocritical views! Please look at the violence inwards before you look at international events. Imagine what would have happened if India would have lost the world cup.

I guess it already did in 2003 - and last time I checked - there was nothing like this.

Oh cmon cyrus: What Blackasta tells is true. Accept and suck it up. Making comments about india in a thread which is about vancover will surely get you some comments and argument and nothing else!

The videos are being used to track people down.

Maan, now that's a sick video. changed my whole view towards Canada,thought it was calmer and non violent compared to it's southern neighbour.
Always wrongly though that India is not suited for exotics but hell Indians wouldn't touch one or come near it if it's above or looks expensive than a normal compact executive sedan.
What could be so exciting about sports to warrant doing this???
Heck i couldn't go past the first video let alone seeing the second one. The chinese owner destroying his Lambo was far less sick to see.

Vijay and Sidhharth Mallya will disagree with you. Their cars were scratched end to end when they were parked at Chinnaswamy stadium during one of the IPL games.

Anyway, its not an uncommon phenomenon in Americas and Europe for fans to go crazy.

Well ,if you have a very expensive car and even if a whole town comes against you, you would do anything to protect it.
Even if it is not expensive, your car is YOUR car, would you keep quiet if anyone tries to destroy it.
Anyway they didn't have any killing weapons or anything did they?

If the whole town come against me for my car, I better give it to them!
Let it be a super car or an old car.

I was impressed by her attitude, beating up all of them who was attacking her car.

Actually she's got company. There are two girls doing the defence if you watch closely!
I so wish they'd caught the gutless guy in the white hoodie! The video, to me is unbearable! Couldn't help but post twice! :(

If the owner was a guy he would have been badly hurt by the mob. She got away because she was a girl.

Must say, a very brave girl. And I hope that she had kicked those idiots hard and if possible have hunt them down with the help of law. Those guys should be taught a lesson that they can't go scot-free after creating such anarchy.
