In a scathing opinion piece, the wife of a murdered black police captain in St. Louis accused Black Lives Matter and other progressive activists like Vice President Kamala Harris of dividing America, calling them “super bad guys.”
Anne Dorn, a retired sergeant of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and widow of Captain David Dorn, wrote in an op-ed published with Fox News on Tuesday that her husband’s death was the product of Democrats and left-wing activists who advocated against them. Law enforcement sentiment across the country.
“In the end, David was killed because the people who were supposed to protect our streets – active duty police officers – were ordered not to do their jobs. It is clear that the anti-law sentiment, fueled by the rhetoric of Democratic and left-wing activists in this country, has gone too far,” Dorn wrote.
“Yes, there are bad cops, but tackling bad cops by not ordering the police at all is not a solution. It is extreme and dangerous and it cost my husband his life.”
She thought about her 14-year marriage to a police captain, until his death in June 2020 during the St. Louis riots.
Dorn revealed that her husband had retired from the police at the time but had “not retired from his community service”.
“One of our friends owned a pawn shop, which was only 10 minutes from our house but about an hour away from where our friend lived. For this reason, David was the point of contact for the alarm system and would check the shop whenever the alarm went off,” Dorn said. He’s been doing this for 30 years.
She wrote that as the Black Lives Matter protests were “falling down on the city,” leaving buildings torched and businesses looted, her husband responded to the pawn shop’s ultimatum, “knowing that the city has been consumed by violence and chaos.”
When he got to the store, David encountered a few hooligans outside, and one of them was a guy named Stephen Cannon. David told them it wasn’t worth it, and there was little value in the store that wasn’t tightly closed. Moments later Cannon shot On David in the chest. He bled on the sidewalk,” the widow continued.
“A third rioter broadcast the entire incident live, and we later learned that one of the many viewers who watched David’s murder unfold was David’s great-grandson.”
Cannon was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of a police captain last month.
In her article, Dorn went on to detail why her late husband became a police officer, saying it was because he wanted to be a superhero as a child.
“He was a superhero,” she said. “But if there are superheroes in real life, then superheroes also exist.”
These bad guys are people like the guy who killed my husband. It’s people like billionaire George Soros, who use their power and influence to promote extremist politics and fan the flames of division,” Dorn continued, before criticizing the vice president.
“It’s people like Vice President Kamala Harris, who raised money for the bailout money for the rioters, and high-profile corporate executives who have blindly given their support and money for this purpose.”
“If a foreign organization is linked to nationwide riots in the United States, we might call it a terrorist organization,” Dorn added.
The retired sergeant revealed that her husband, a black man, did not support or understand the Black Lives Matter movement because she claimed she had “never actually done anything to help black lives.”
“The same year David was murdered, over a dozen children were shot in St. Louis, and the movie Black Lives Matter never came out. Their lives mattered. 55 businesses were looted or destroyed on the night David was murdered, many of them owned by blacks. Dorn wrote. Their livelihood was important. My husband was a black man who had selflessly served his community for more than 40 years. His life was important.”
Black Lives Matter and the vice president’s office did not immediately respond to The Post’s requests for comment.
