    U2's concert scheduled for Saturday night at the Dome at America's Center is canceled.


    Live Nation and U2 announced the news in a joint statement. "We have been informed by the St. Louis Police Department that they are not in a position to provide the standard protection for our audience as would be expected for an event of this size. We have also been informed that local crowd security personnel would not be at full capacity.


    In light of this information, we cannot in good conscience risk our fans’ safety by proceeding with tonight’s concert. As much as we regret having to cancel, we feel it is the only acceptable course of action in the current environment.” - Live Nation and U2
    Good work scum.

    These people like to chant about justice. They don't want justice. They wanted an ad hoc guilty verdict. That is not justice. Just because the verdict isn't what you wanted doesn't mean justice wasn't served.

    I'd love to imagine that U2 and the whole production crew would make the connection between this VERY expensive cancellation and the thug-rioters. I'm not that optimistically credulous.

    A savvy and smart band/promoter will probably ensure that U2 gets paid anyway. Especially for a band of their stature. Sad for the fans, because they do put on a good show.

    Today so far the thugs are marching around
    indoor malls and it seems quiet and not violent.

    That will probably change tonight.

  7. #27 Here’s why a judge acquitted a St. Louis cop of first-degree murder

    A judge’s decision to acquit an officer of murder in the death of a black suspect came down to two major questions: Did the officer plant a gun, and did his outburst about killing the man seconds before the shooting signal premeditation?
    St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson determined Friday that prosecutors failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Jason Stockley’s use of deadly force was not justifiable self-defense. Anthony Lamar Smith was killed in the 2011 encounter.
    “Ultimately when people argue about this case, they are going to be arguing whether the judge drew the right conclusion from the evidence and probably less about the law,” said Ben Trachtenberg, an associate professor of law at the University of Missouri.
    Here’s a look at how the judge parsed those arguments in his ruling:
    DID THE OFFICER PLANT THE GUN?

    The officers were investigating what appeared to be a drug transaction in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant. The car sped away and a high-speed chase ensued. Police slammed their SUV into Smith’s car. Stockley then got out and fired five shots into Smith’s car, killing him. A handgun was found in the car after the shooting.
    Prosecutors argued the presence of Stockley’s DNA — and absence of Smith’s DNA — on the gun proved the gun must have been planted by the officer.
    But the defense countered that Stockley heard his partner yell “gun” and saw the driver’s hand on a gun as the car sped by him. Stockley testified he did not draw his service revolver and fire until he saw Smith reaching around inside the vehicle after it was stopped. He said Smith changed his demeanor, suggesting he found the gun.
