The First Vancouver Rioter Is Going To Jail

20-year-old Ryan Dickinson becomes the first Vancouver rioter sentenced, a 17-month jail stint for his part in the destruction following the Canucks' Stanley Cup Finals loss in June.

In court Tuesday, Crown prosecutor Patti Tomasson showed video and still photographs of Dickinson in the 700-block Nelson Street repeatedly throwing a newspaper box at an unmarked police car.

The footage also showed Dickinson attempting to flip an unmarked police car with others and tossing a mannequin and another newspaper box into an already destroyed Black and Lee tuxedo shop on Richards Street. Dickinson also used the leg of a street barricade to smash the rear driver's side window of a police car, Tomasson said.

In total, prosecutors have brought 141 charges against 52 people identified as taking part in the riots.
