David Dorn killer

St. Louis police arrested a man Sunday in connection with the killing of a retired police captain who was trying to stop the looting of his friend’s store during protests last week.

24-year-old Stephen Cannon was charged with the murder of retired St. Louis Police Captain David Dorn, who was gunned down while attempting to stop looters at a pawnshop 5 days ago.

The fatal shooting was captured on live video on Facebook, but has been taken down. The video showed David Dorn, 77, sprawled out on the sidewalk bleeding as looters continued to go into and out of the store he was trying to protect.

CNN and other media have failed to mention David Dorn by name on air and in their digital coverage when the news broke. As if David Dorn’s life didn’t matter.

Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Buys Entire Texas Town

‘No Plans Yet’, Cuban Says About His Purchase of Abandoned Texas Town of Mustang

Forget becoming Mayor of a town, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is now the owner of a town.  Cuban reportedly purchased the entire town of Mustang, Texas. The town is virtually abandoned with no current residents, “and it’s been several years since the last two businesses, Wispers Cabaret strip club and Lion’s Den adult bookstore, operated” reports NBC News.

In a brief email explaining the purchase to NBC News on Friday, Cuban wrote “did it to help out a friend. No plans yet!” The town of Mustang is roughly 65 miles south of American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks.

According to Mike Turner, president of Dallas real estate firm J. Elmer Turner, the town had been for sale on the market about four years, listed after the principal owner Marty Price became ill and decided to sell.

Price was an attorney who died this past August; a devoted basketball fan with Mavericks floor seats. “Mark Cuban stepped up, and it was a natural for him to buy it” Turner told NBC News. “With his resources and imagination, I’m sure there are endless possibilities.”

Turner did not reveal the final sales price but admitted it closed last month for less than the $4 million asking price. Jerry Newsom, chief of the volunteer fire department in the neighboring town of Angus, told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth “we’re excited to have him as our neighbor here, and we’re excited for the growth and the potential it has.”
