Media on the hunt for Vancouver riots hero

The hunt is on for the brave man in a cap (inset) who tried to prevent at least some of the unbridled violence that took place in Vancouver. All across the TV spectrum, news people are calling on the man to make himself known so that he can be thanked -- and they can get the story. The Toronto Star called him "one good man in the middle of the madness," as he tried to defend his city and stop the looting. In video showing his unsuccessful attempt to stop the rampage, the man shouted out to the crowd, "this is my city," with an expletive added in the middle. The mob responded by turning on the man, beating him. It is among the most chilling scenes recently seen in Canada.
