Innocent Lives Lost: Rioting, Looting and Chaos Continue Nationwide

Published

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.

DOJ charges eleven pro-life protesters ‘aided and abetted by one another’

Published

DOJ

Eleven pro-life protesters were charged with violating federal law by the Department of Justice Wednesday for blocking abortion clinics. The individuals, “aided and abetted by one another, used force and physical obstruction to injure, intimidate, and interfere with employees of the clinic and a patient who was seeking reproductive health services” said the DOJ.

According to a summary of the indictment, seven of the demonstrators were charged with conspiracy against rights secured by the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, which prohibits obstructing the entrance to an abortion facility. The remaining four were charged with violating the legislation.

Pro-life activist AJ Hurley told Live Action News  the FBI raided the home of Chester Gallagher, the organizer of the protest and one of the accused conspirators, on Tuesday with guns drawn. He said Gallagher’s neighbors told him Gallagher was out of state when the FBI showed up and entered his home.

National Review reports that Hurley also told Live Action News that the FBI reportedly recently called a few of the charged individuals to tell them they had arrest warrants and that they must turn themselves in. If convicted, those charged with conspiracy could face up to eleven years in prison and fines up to $250,000, the DOJ confirmed.

National Review writes:

Gallagher allegedly advertised a series of pro-life events on social media for March 2021 in the Nashville area. The indictment claims he and other coordinators recruited participants to travel to the city and erect a blockade, which Gallagher allegedly called a “rescue,” at Carafem Health Center Clinic in Mount Juliet, Tenn., to prevent pregnant women from pursuing abortions.

A livestream of the stand-in shows activists chanting and singing prayer up the stairs to and along the hallway outside the abortion clinic, located in an office complex. Police officers eventually appeared in the video urging them to take their protest outside to the sidewalk.

“This is not allowed guys. Asking you to leave the property or I will call the police,” a security guard can be heard saying. The indictment alleges that the group prevented a patient and an employee from entering the facility. After they refused to leave the premises, the activists were reportedly escorted away to jail by police on misdemeanor trespassing charges. One pro-life activist wroteon March 6, 2021, on Facebook the claim that one “rescuer” was held on $1,000 bail, six, including Gallagher, on $1,500 bail, and two on $2,500 bail.
