Anticipating more demonstrations Saturday, the band U2 canceled its evening concert in St. Louis because the police department said it wouldn't be able to provide its standard protection for the event, organizers said. "This mob was intent on destroying or damaging property, assaulting police officers and setting fires", he said.
In his first public comments since the verdict, Stockley, 36, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Saturday it felt as if "a burden has been lifted, but the burden of having to kill someone never really lifts".
