Dan Bongino: Earlier this week, a retired St. Louis police captain was shot and killed protecting his friend’s looted pawn shop from rioters. 77-year-old David Dorn was found shot dead outside of Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry store at around 2:30 AM Tuesday.
“He was murdered by looters at a pawnshop. He was the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to. Violence is not the answer, whether it’s a citizen or officer,” the Ethical Society of Police of St. Louis wrote.
According to KMOV4, Dorn was murdered during a looting while “exercising law enforcement training,” said St. Louis Police Chief John Hayden. “David Dorn was a fine captain, many of us young officers looked up to him,” Hayden continued, and said that officers will be wearing their mourning badges in memory of Dorn. read more
