Vancouver Kissing Couple: Make Love, Not War?

 

By Egotist / / If you haven’t seen it yet, the photo above was taken during the Vancouver riots after the Bruins won the Stanley Cup on Wednesday night (Go Bs!). Speculation was going around that the couple was turned on by all the violence around them (seriously?) or that the photo was staged. Of course, Facebook helped put all that to rest. Soon after Scott Jones was identified with girlfriend Alex Thomas, it was made clear that Jones was actually coming to her aid to comfort her after being knocked down by riot police. Jones was giving her a kiss, assuring her “it’s going to be OK,” as Getty Images photographer Richard Lam captured the moment. Via.
