The following article, ICYMI: Retired Black Police Captain Murdered During Violent Riots, Protecting Friend’s Shop, was first published on Flag And Cross.
He retired in 2007 after 38 years in law enforcement. Retired Captain David Dorn was 77-years-old. His life did not matter to the violent George Floyd protesters.
And why not?
Because none of this protesting is actually about George Floyd.
From Daily Mail:
A retired St Louis police captain has been shot dead Tuesday by looters who had broken into his friend’s pawn shop.
David Dorn, 77, was found dead on the sidewalk in front of Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry in the early hours following unrest that followed a peaceful protest over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
The shooting and theft at the pawn shop apparently was posted on Facebook Live, but the video has since been taken down.
Police have not released details of what led to the shooting about 2.30am Tuesday and no one has been arrested.

This is one of the toughest videos I’ve watched since the one of George Floyd being killed, but people need to see it. Especially those who dismiss the damage from these riots as just property.
David Dorn’s life also mattered. This needs to end. https://t.co/6KYvughBuv

One of the people murdered last night was a retired St. Louis City Captain. He was murdered by looters at a pawnshop. He was the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to.
Violence is not the answer, whether it’s a citizen or officer.

Our highest respect to the family of David Dorn, a Great Police Captain from St. Louis, who was viciously shot and killed by despicable looters last night. We honor our police officers, perhaps more than ever before. Thank you! pic.twitter.com/0ouUpoJEQ4
