Innocent Lives Lost: Rioting, Looting and Chaos Continue Nationwide

Published

David Dorn retired police offier

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.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father

Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”

Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”

It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”

Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
