Retired police officer cruelly killed after being shot during U.S. protests

Since George Floyd’s death, the United States has seen property destroyed, innocent lives endangered and violence resulting in many deaths.

They claim that his death was caused by thugs and not by protestors.

Violent protesters have reportedly set fire to houses, destroyed businesses and killed unsuspecting victims.

Among the murder victims is a retired police captain from St. Louis, Missouri.

David Dorn was viciously shot dead early Tuesday morning by people who broke into a pawn shop where he was staying.

The officer’s body was found on the sidewalk in front of Lee’s Pawn Shop and Jewelry. His wife told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Dorn was a friend of the store owner and that he frequently checked the store when the alarm went off.

The 77-year-old man joined the police academy in November 1969 and graduated months later. He was assigned to support patrol when he retired from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department in October 2007.

Authorities express their sadness

Dorn’s personality was “bigger than life,” says former St Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch. “He was a funny guy, a happy guy.”

Fitch tweeted:

In a tweet, President Donald Trump also expressed his sadness at the death of this officer, and thanked law enforcement officials for their work.

According to CBN News, the robbery and the shooting were apparently broadcast on Facebook Live, but it seems that the video has been removed.

Mike Parson, Governor of Missouri, argues that the “criminals” were responsible for Dorn’s death, not the protesters.

“The people who shot him should be held accountable. And, no, they’re not protestors. They’re criminals and thugs… And, hopefully, they’re persecuted,” Parson said.

So far no arrests have been made on the basis of this crime, but believers are asked to please keep the Dorn family in your prayers.
