Looters in St. Louis murdered a 77-year-old retired police captain as he was trying to defend a pawn shop early Tuesday. As The New York Post reports:
David Dorn, a 77-year-old former cop who had spent half his life on the Missouri force, was shot dead on the sidewalk in front of a pawnshop early Tuesday amid violent protests after the Minnesota police-brutality killing of George Floyd — and several people, including a state pol, said they watched Dorn’s murder unfold in a clip on the social media platform, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said.
“I just seen a man die on live man! Smh,” state Rep. Rasheen Aldridge wrote on Facebook.
Another person suggested that as Dorn lay dying, no one helped him, instead choosing to record his death.
“What I just witnessed on several lives has me sickened to my stomach. The man just was shot and killed outside of Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry,” wrote Marquaello Futrell, whose profile says he is a former city cop.
Our highest respect to the family of David Dorn, a Great Police Captain from St. Louis, who was viciously shot and killed by despicable looters last night. We honor our police officers, perhaps more than ever before. Thank you! pic.twitter.com/0ouUpoJEQ4

Dorn’s murder is just another example of the violence and chaos engendered by the radical left in America during the current wave of rioting and looting.
