ST. LOUIS — A retired St. Louis police captain and municipal chief was shot to death by looters at a St. Louis pawn shop early Tuesday, and his killing apparently was broadcast on Facebook Live.

David Dorn, 77, was shot in the torso about 2:30 a.m. He died on the sidewalk in front of the shop, Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry, at 4123 Martin Luther King Drive.

Police have made no arrests and said they have no suspects. Authorities have announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

The killing north of downtown happened on a night of violence and destruction in St. Louis, as rioting followed protests over the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Dorn was at the pawn shop to protect it from looting.

" Maybe the rich owner of that business will use his voice and privilege to call for change.
Or maybe the people will have to remind him again. Black lives are more important than cars.



It is apparent to me that the only pressure that politicians will cave to is economic pressure. Perhaps continued economic pressure caused by rioting will be enough to get something meaningful done on a systemic level.

9. Who here said "looting is a justified reminder of black oppression"?

 

You should post a link or delete this post.

Or you could just save time and delete the post because no one said any such thing.
