A memorial fund raising money for the family of a retired St. Louis police captain who was murdered by looters during Monday’s race riots has raised $50,000 as of Monday night, just hours after it was created by Jack Posobiec.
Dorn, who retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007, was found dead around 2:30AM on Tuesday morning. Surveillance camera footage revealed that he had been shot and killed by a looter as he was defending Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry.
His wife, Ann Marie Dorn, who still works for the police department, stated that David was a friend of the pawn shop’s owner and would secure the premises when the burglar’s alarm went off at the property. Dorn was 77 years old.
President Donald Trump mourned for Dorn in a Tuesday Facebook post, pointing to the senior citizen as a tragic casualty of the nationwide race riots that have resulted in widespread death and destruction following the death of George Floyd.
Our highest respect to the family of David Dorn, a Great Police Captain from St. Louis, who was viciously shot and…
The Ethical Society of Police in St. Louis described Dorn’s death as a senseless, vicious murder in the pursuit of stolen goods.
“He was murdered by looters at a pawnshop. He was the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to. Violence is not the answer, whether it’s a citizen or officer.”
Posobiec, who created the fund in Dorn’s memory, expressed his surprise that so many Americans proved generous enough to donate in the name of his memory. The widespread support from across the nation may be indicate of a silent majority incensed at the senseless death of the senior citizen, who had served his community with distinction in his career in law enforcement for more than 30 years.
We just broke 50k for this man's family

Giuliani’s 9/11 Charity Stepping Up to Host Light Memorial Ceremony After Coronavirus Canceled It
It’s a New York tradition.
A charity linked to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is preparing to hold a light memorial event commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, stepping up to host the event after social distancing concerns led the society that normally stages the event to cancel it.
Frank Siller, the President of Tunnel2Towers, confirmed that the group will be staging a memorial event that is “almost identical” to the annual Towers of Light commemoration that the Municipal Art Society sets up on September 11th every year.
It had appeared that Bill de Blasio’s city government was integral in convincing the Municipal Art Society to cancel the memorial, raising questions as to why New York’s mayor is actively seeking to prevent 9/11 memorial events while actively promoting Black Lives Matter riots, protests, and the installation of street art intended to glorify the far-left movement.
If the Towers of Light memorial had been effectively cancelled, it would’ve been the first year since 2002 that the identifiable lights are absent from New York’s skyline on the night of September 11th. The Towers of Light are visible for many miles.
“The ceremonial Towers of Light that shine from NYC in tribute to those lost on 9/11 are an iconic symbol of hope,” stated Tunnel2Towers in a Friday statement confirming their plans. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who presided over the mayoralty during the terrorist attacks, has been described as a leadership figure of the charity.
“It’s going to be a magnificent tribute to those who died,” said Siller on a Friday radio segment. “We have already secured the lights, and by Monday or Tuesday we will have finished securing the location which is right down by Ground Zero.”
New Yorkers and Americans cannot forget the heroism and tragedy of 9/11, especially as a left-wing Democrat Mayor seeks to essentially replace commemoration of the event with worship of the Black Lives Matter movement.
