Looters don’t care who or what they hurt in their pursuit of what they think they are owed. In an undeclared war there will be casualties and those who wind up being collateral damage. Although he was retired, St. Louis City Police captain David Dorn was responding to an alarm after a shootout. His passion to help others proved fatal. The family is looking for answers.
St. Louis Regional Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest of anybody associated with Dorn’s murder.
David Dorn was all about family
Family is the backbone of America. He was the father of five and had 10 grand children. He would have happily sat down with the person who shot him to just have a conversation.
He loved helping kids, those who might not have their own family. If he could have redirected that confusion and anger, he would have done it.
His son Brian Powell said, “Because he was real big on trying to talk to youth. And mentoring young people as well. He tried to get them on the straight and narrow and everything.
“The person who pulled the trigger, my message to them would just simply be, just step back from what you’re doing. Know the real reason that you’re protesting. Let’s do it in a positive manner. We don’t have to go out and loot and do all the other things,” Powell explained.
Trump loves our law enforcement
Because Trump also believes in family. He tweeted, “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!”
Dorn helped more than one person out of poverty and into doing something meaningful. David Ellison said, “Dave Dorn was a great man. He was fair, the sharpest, cleanest guy.”
Powell said police work ran through his veins, he couldn’t retire. That’s common. We’re defined by our work. Many people feel lost without what they’ve done all their lives.
