Found: The Vancouver riot kissing couple (5 Photos)

Meet Scott Jones and his girlfriend, Alex Thomas. As the story goes, Alex had been knocked to the ground by the riot police. The situation was far from romantic. Alex recalls being, 'completely freaked out.' To calm her down, Scott ran to Alex's aid and covered Alex to protect her. Then, in the heat of the moment, he kissed her. AP photographer Richard Lam snapped two photos of the couple as he was being ushered away by the police... and the rest is history.

    • bluejazz87

      Obviously you do since you have the time to post a complaint about it. Just saying is all.

      • Fuck Canada

        No, obviously I don't, that's why I'm asking 'who does?'. *derp*

        • bluejazz87

          So you don't care, yet you're going to take the time out of your day to ask who does?

          Yet you say you don't care. Alright….

          • Fuck Canada

            Yeah, pretty much. I know right? It's absolutely INSANE how somebody could take 30 seconds out of their day to pose an inquiry why they should give a fuck about something they don't. Woah, show me the way out of Wonderland!

  • Skedaddle

    Ah, anarchists in love.

  • Phil

    sounds made up

    • Coldzilla

      YOU sound made up


  • Chris Arabian

    Good for him to come and help her in her time of need. There are still gentlemen out there. Shitty thing is, now that the truth is out, all the women out there are going to expect a lot more from us in terms of being valiant, guys. Next time you leave the toilet seat up or didn't wash the dish she brought your sammich on or put away the beer bottles after drinking them instead of leaving them where they dropped from your hand, she's going to say, "Why couldn't you be more like the guy in Vancouver who put his LIFE on the line for his girlfriend? All I am asking of you is to …." Wait, now I really HATE that guy!!!

  • Miguel Angel Ortega

    She´s hot

  • Coldzilla

    Um……… hate to say it but they were "found" a long time ago… CBC had an interview with that last week

  • absolutcarcrazy

    #1. nonetheless… still a good photograph. It will last a lot longer on the net than the troll comments on this post.

  • Dirty Dingus

    He incited the riot, just for an excuse to kiss her. Heck, I think he put a hex on Luongo to ensure that the Canucks would lose.

  • ssstoopid

    What if she was eating crackers?

    • Randy Marsh

      Graham or saltine?? Because any girl who eats Graham crackers is already in my book.
