The Vancouver 2011 Riot Criminal List Tumblr was started late last night after the devastating riot that was fuelled by the Vancouver loss against the Bruins in the Stanley Cup final.

The site has become a hub for publicizing photos of the criminal activity. The site has allowed viewers to find and identify to the police who committed crimes such as looting, vandalism and violence.

The Vancouver 2011 Riot Criminal List was started by the founder because they wanted to "[...] hold people accountable for their actions! Alright everyone, lets start posting pictures of the idiots setting fires and looting. Let’s get identifying these criminals.”

One photo is a screenshot of Brock Anton, who openly admits to his crimes on Facebook. He has now become a Trending Topic on Twitter. Stats for Crowdsourced Criminal Identifiers Trending: Older & Popular
