Vancouver Police Department really believes that they did an outstanding job in policing the night of the riots. But its more than that! VPD missed many warning signs, and clues. Police missed important clues days before Game 7 … like the conversation with the Liquor Board Boss. It’s clear that anyone down in the FanZone noticed the tension in the air and the undercurrent by the crowds. I’d say that VPD’s early response system was broken. Just like it is now. That’s why they continously give each other “Barneys” and “high-fives”.
