They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
But do any of those words contain the truth?
This picture, to me, screams “horny morons making out during the recent Vancouver riot“…
However, according to the father of the mystery male, Australian Scott Jones, the picture screams, “heroic boyfriend”.
“They were between the riot police and the rioters, and the riot police were actually charging forward, and Alex got knocked by a [police] shield and fell to the ground,” Brett Jones told CBC News. “[Scott] was comforting her and gave her a kiss to say, ‘It’s going to be OK,’ and the photographer just took the shot at that moment.”
What he fails to mention is the fact his son is a budding stand-up comic.
Personally, I’m not buying this “comforting boyfriend” story, the couple’s body language doesn’t support that theory at all. But it doesn’t matter what I think. People all over the world will look at this shot and form their own opinion.
That’s simply how the world works.
The couple, Australian Scott Jones and his Canadian girlfriend Alex Thomas, have carved themselves a place in Vancouver riot history.
But was this their plan all along?
