Once again, an American city is in ruins after Black Lives Matter protesters unleashed their farcical fury on St. Louis.
This time, as with many incidents before it, the impetus was a matter of “social justice” somehow being valued more highly than actual justice, as the court of public opinion weighed in on the acquittal of former policeman Jason Stockley. Officer Stockley was on trial for the 2011 death of Anthony Lamar Smith after a high speed pursuit instigated during a drug investigation.
Unsurprisingly, the racial makeup of the incident incensed the Black Lives Matter domestic terror organization as they insinuated that the entire judicial system involved was perpetrating a bigoted conspiracy to acquit Stockley due to his caucasian heritage. In reality, of course, there was no mention of racial motive by the judge who acquitted Stockley. This fact has seemingly been ignored by the rioters.
Due to the increased need for police in other parts of the city, rock band U2 was forced to cancel their performance as the law enforcement was unable to adequately provide security for the concert.
“U2’s concert scheduled for Saturday night in St. Louis has been cancelled because St. Louis police told the band they can’t provide the usual level of security because of protests that have erupted in the city.
“‘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,’ Live Nation and U2 said in a joint statement.“The statement added that because ‘local crowd security personnel would not be at full capacity’, they ‘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,’ the statement concludes.”
U2, whose lead singer Bono is one of the more outspoken members of the liberal elite, have yet to announce plans for a rescheduling of the tour date.
Once again, the people of the United States have been under siege by these racist, violent organizations who believe that their perception of fairness somehow supersedes that of the United States court system.
