Vidéos. États-Unis : des violences à Saint Louis après l’acquittement d’un policier

Le groupe de rock irlandais U2 a annulé in extremis son concert à Saint-Louis ne voulant pas "risquer la sécurité" de ses fans dans le contexte des manifestations violentes qui agitent actuellement cette ville du centre des États-Unis.

Le groupe U2 en concert, le 23 septembre 2016 à Las Vegas.

"La police de Saint Louis nous a informés qu'elle ne sera pas en mesure d'assurer la protection habituelle à notre public (.) À la lumière de cette information, nous ne pouvons pas mettre la sécurité de nos fans en péril volontairement". Bien que nous le fassions à regret, l'annulation est selon nous la seule issue acceptable dans l'environnement actuel. Les fans pourront se faire rembourser leur billet.

La police de la ville a en effet d'autres chats à fouetter.

Des heurts ont éclaté à Saint Louis après l'acquittement, vendredi dernier, d'un ex-policier blanc, Jason Stockley, qui était jugé pour le meurtre en 2011 du jeune Noir Anthony Lamar Smith, qui était âgé de 24 ans.

Lors des manifestations de vendredi, la police a fait usage de bombes lacrymogènes lorsque les événements ont pris un tour violent, en fin de journée. Au moins 23 personnes ont été arrêtées et dix policiers blessés, selon les autorités de la ville.
