Justice Finally Served For Officer Killed During 2020 BLM Riots

It didn’t take long for the Missouri jury to serve justice to the officer gunned down by a thug. David Dorn was just protecting a friend’s business during the riots of June 2020. In only three hours, Stephan Cannon, 26 was found guilty of murdering Officer Dorn. His family members were satisfied at the outcome. Dorn confronted looters at Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry when one of the looters shot him.

Justice against Cannon

Cannon was the only one standing on the corner from the direction shots were fire. Among the things police recovered was a handgun, televisions from the pawn shop and parts of Cannon’s dreadlocks where he was staying.

The event was filmed and briefly done Facebook Live. Prosecutors played this in court. Paul Mauro, an attorney and former NYPD inspector commented on the case, “I’m very glad that justice was served for Capt. Dorn. But make no mistake – the conditions that allowed his killing should never have occurred.” There was no reason for any of this.

Some justice in the riots

The unrest in St. Louis and other large US cities followed George Floyd’s death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer in 2020. Black Lives Matter rioting ripped apart cities, causing billions in damages.

Dorn wasn’t the only officer shot that night, four other cops met their end as well. Dorn’s widow remembered that night in a speech at the 2020 Republican National Convention.

Justice can be hoped for in the future

Ann Dorn spoke, “As I slept, looters were ransacking the shop. They shot and killed David in cold blood, and then live-streamed his execution and his last moments on Earth. David’s grandson was watching the video on Facebook in real time, not realizing he was watching his own grandfather dying on the sidewalk.”

Dorn worked for 38 years in the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and six more as Chief of Police for Moline Acres. The previous year Dorn received the Congressional Medal of Honor Citizen Honor Award that’s only given out to a handful of people each year for actions above and beyond the call of duty.
