Innocent Lives Lost: Rioting, Looting and Chaos Continue Nationwide

Eights days of continuing riots throughout the United States, has led to the deaths and injuries of numerous people, including police officers and innocent civilians.

Floyd’s brother, Terrence, has begged the nation to “stop looting and throw up the peace sign.”

Law enforcement officials, along with local and federal authorities, are struggling to gain control of city streets amidst the growing violence. While some people have peaceful intentions and truly want equality for all, others are part of groups like Antifa and seek to create unrest.

In one instance, retired police captain David Dorn, 77, was shot to death by looters outside of a St. Louis, Missouri pawn shop early Tuesday. His killing was broadcast on Facebook Live and is currently under investigation, according to a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Dorn was shot in the torso at approximately 2:30 a.m. He died on the sidewalk in front of the shop, Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry, located at 4123 Martin Luther King Drive.

Police have made no arrests and said they have no suspects, the Post-Dispatch reports as of Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. The Ethical Society of Police, an organization that represents black officers in St. Louis, said Dorn was “the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to.”

Flowers and a teddy bear sat outside the shop next to a handwritten sign that read, “Y’all killed a black man because ‘they’ killed a black man??? Rest in peace.”

David Dorn dedicated nearly four decades of his life to protecting his community. He retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007 after 38 years on the job, starting as a rookie patrol officer in 1969 to becoming a captain. He was the deputy commander of the Bureau of Patrol Support, which is responsible for operating traffic and mounted patrols, commercial vehicles and the tactical unit.

Upon his retirement, Dorn then became police chief in Moline Acres, a small city on the outskirts of St. Louis in which black Americans comprise of over 90% of the population.

A memorial fund for his family has been established.

Tim Fitch, current councilman St. Louis County councilman and a former St. Louis County police chief, remembered Dorn as a “true public servant.”

Moreover, another black officer was killed in riots over the weekend in Oakland, California. A federal officer who was providing security at a U.S. courthouse during a protest was murdered upon someone firing shots from a vehicle.

Dave Patrick Underwood, 53, was fatally wounded and another officer was critically wounded. No one has been arrested.

Underwood and the other individual were contracted security officers employed by the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service. They were monitoring a nearby protest.

Underwood was the brother of Angela Underwood Jacobs, who recently ran as a Republican candidate for California’s 25th Congressional District seat.

In Davenport, Iowa, police are investigating the deaths of 22-year-old Italia Kelly, who was shot Monday while leaving a protest outside of a Walmart, and of a man, whose body was found near where suspects engaged in a firefight. No arrests have been made.

Her sister released an emotional video, telling those who watched it that Italia was killed by a looter.

Decent Americans all over are begging for the violence to end.

Our leaders have one primary job: to protect their constituents. It’s time for them to do that.

Adviser to Fauci bragged about helping him evade FOIA, ‘he is too smart’ to get caught

The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic published evidence ahead of a hearing that explains the senior scientific adviser to then-National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci actually bragged about helping Fauci evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

The adviser, David Morens, admitted in his own communications to intentionally evading FOIA by using a Fauci’s private Gmail address or just handing him documents in person, according to the newly disclosed emails.

The 35-page report on Morens includes previously unreleased emails including:

An April 21, 2021 email shows Morens contacted EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak, whom Morens has described as his “best friend” and a U.S. taxpayer conduit for the Wuhan Institute of Virology, as well as Boston University and New England Biolabs researchers.

The subject line references “CoV research in China, GoF, etc.,” referring to EcoHealth-facilitated coronavirus research at WIV that could make a virus more transmissible or dangerous. The National Institutes of Health recently admitted it funded gain-of-function research under that definition but not a stricter regulatory definition.

“PS, i forgot to say there is no worry about FOIAs,” Morens wrote. “I can either send stuff to Tony on his private gmail, or hand it to him at work or at his house. He is too smart to let colleagues send him stuff that could cause trouble.”

A May 13, 2021 email to the same recipients referred to “our ‘secret’ back channel” by which Morens connected Fauci to a journalist named “Arthur,” apparently to discuss the feds’ preferred narrative that SARS-CoV-2 emerged naturally rather than via lab leak. The email cited an article on the message board Virological.

Gerald Keusch, associate director of the National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory Institute at BU, emailed Daszak Oct. 25, 2021 to relay a phone conversation with “David,” who is “concerned about the privacy of text” and email sent and received on his “government phone” because they “could be FOIA’able.”

“Tony has told him not to be in touch with you and EHA for the time being,” Keusch wrote. Morens relayed that Daszak should get his story straight on EcoHealth’s claim that NIH locked it out of the system when it tried to file its year-five progress report that disclosed an arguable gain-of-function experiment.

Earlier in the day, Morens told Daszak “i will be meeting with Tony about this later on.” The subject line of the thread was “Draft response to Michael Lauer,” deputy director for extramural research at NIH.

Morens also told Daszak that Fauci and then-NIH Director Francis Collins are “trying to protect you, which also protects their own reputations,” apparently meaning against allegations that U.S. tax dollars passed through EcoHealth funded research that may have led to SARS-CoV-2’s emergence.

The subcommittee said it found emails that revealed “likely illegal” practices, including an April 2020 email in which Morens shared a “new NIAID implementation plan” with Daszak and an August 2020 email in which Daszak mentioned a “kick-back” to Morens after NIH awarded $7.5 million to EcoHealth.
