Man Charged With Murder of Retired St. Louis Police Captain David Dorn

Man Charged With Murder of Retired St. Louis Police Captain David Dorn

The suspect faces many charges, including first-degree murder and first-degree robbery.

Authorities announced they have arrested and charged Stephan Cannon, 24, for the murder of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner said Cannon faces charges of first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, felon in possession of a firearm, and three counts of armed criminal action.

Dorn died after Cannon allegedly shot him while looting Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry on June 2. Riots broke out in St. Louis and around the nation in response to the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.

Dorn was friends with the owner and checked in when the alarms went off, even in his retirement.

Dorn’s wife St. Louise police Sgt. Ann Marie Dorn still works for the department.

Everyone had words of praise for Dorn. Cannon sounds like the kind of person Dorn would have reached out to and helped get on the right track:

Former St. Louis County police Chief Tim Fitch knew Dorn for 30 years and said they became close friends when Dorn and his wife were leading the St. Louis police department’s Explorers program for young people interested in law enforcement careers, while Fitch was leading the county’s program.

“He was very dedicated to youth, especially disadvantaged youth,” said Fitch, who led the St. Louis County Police Department from 2009 to 2014. “He wanted to see them succeed. He wanted to be a role model for those young men and women to go into law enforcement.”

Dorn’s personality was “bigger than life,” Fitch said. “He was a fun guy, a happy guy. You never had to wonder what he was thinking when somebody did something incredibly stupid like a crime because he would just say it as he saw it.”

When he took over as chief in Moline Acres, Dorn made it clear that his officers would be held to the strictest of standards, Fitch said.

“He wanted them to do the right thing all the time,” Fitch said.

Rest in peace, Dorn. Thank you for your service.

I’m glad that they caught the alleged culprit.

But, note how the plethora of black homicide victims whose lives were taken by other blacks, doesn’t seem to inspire much protest from either the black community, or, the self-congratulatory, narcissistic and sanctimonious white Dhimmi-crats we see strutting around and patting themselves on the back for their alleged “wokeness.”

When black lives matter to blacks, then come and talk to me about black lives matter.

    I respond similarly concern so-called global warming, “When you lefties and Hollywood celebs personally start acting like it’s a problem, then I’ll think about taking you seriously.”

    Stephan Cannon is an example of a black life which does not matter, it is a shame that there are so many black lives cut from the same cloth as Stephan Cannon. Over a seven fold higher than average crime rate!!

    Rather than misrepresenting the nature of Thugvon and so many others like him, people should stand up for David Dorn. Stop glorifying those whose lives do not and should not matter.

    And Minneapolis is exactly the city in which the Defund-the-Police movement needs to show us knuckle-dragging, cave-dwelling, law-and-order/family-centered rubes how today’s Dem-Left model of a viable and effective political party would get this done — as indeed, BLM — universally and robustly.

    (And just SIERRA-TANGO-FOXTROT-UNIFORM, ya’ll, with that tired and ignorant retort, ” . . . But ALL lives matter if we believe in Equal Justice Under Law — by definition!” We HATE law! they’ll reply. And you better agree if you know what’s good for you.)

    Let Chicago and St Louis quickly follow. Their data-rich environments, especially sans police, just can’t miss at proving their method sound. I guess.

    “Prepare to be put to shame, oppressor-racists [that’s everybody else who questions their theory],” the soon-to-be-dystopia-denying Midwest Utopians are thinking today; “we’ll show the rest of you how it’s done humanely, holistically, with the necessary empathy you obviously lack.” (It’s all in Marx-guided, feminists’ handbook).

    Their byword? F**K male justice, female compassion rules!

    You go, girls! I mean, however you self-identify as humans! Show the dumb, non-post-modernist guys and gals (in God, and biology, we trust) what you can do. Prove us wrong!

    I dare ya.

“You never had to wonder what he was thinking when somebody did something incredibly stupid like a crime because he would just say it as he saw it.”

Hmmm. I wonder if he would refer to black juvenile gangsta-wannabees with some cute euphemism like “disadvantaged youth”.

Show the little cowards just how much this black life mattered.RIP captain.

Saw a picture of Stephan Cannon. There goes the “perp was a white nationalist MAGA Nazi goon” narrative the MSM/DNC axis was planning to use.

I suppose the MSM/DNC axis will be forced to fall back on the less effective “Cannon was just as much a victim of AmeriKKKan injustice as Dorn was” narrative.

The only question that remains is: will Soros-bought Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner cut Cannon loose in a show of racial solidarity, or will she crush him? Either way, the media will lick her jackboots.

    Gardner will prosecute. SLPD is beyond POed about this. This should never have happened. The city government failed too control organized mayhem through the organized use of police force. And, politicians do not want to deal with a police force which is out to get them. Politicians hate honest cops, because those cops’ job is to lockup people who do what politicians do daily; lie, cheat and steal.

    The arrest of the man reportedly responsible for Captain Dorn’s death is a travesty. This should never have happened in the first place. And, the political leadership of St.Louis and Missouri are just as responsible as the criminal who committed the actual crime.

Televised public executions need to come into vogue.

They’ve also arrested a second person involved in the case. And the scumbag who killed David Dorn had the TV in his house and the serial numbers matched the records in the store. A witness also identified him as the shooter.

There will be no escape for this scum. All for a TV. His cell should be lined with TV’s that show nothing but Dorn’s life 24 hours a day.

why no mug shots? scared of something?
if comments allowed it I would post them.

Isn’t 1st degree murder overcharging?

    I don’t know about Missouri, but in many states murdering a current or former LEO gets you an automatic upgrade to first-degree murder.

We need to start posting and pushing liberals to move their families to the inner cities to fight their white privilege. NO EXCUSES.
Either they’re racists or they’re not.
They have no excuses NOT to move down to the inner cities and fight their inner racist.
No more white flight, liberals have to live their beliefs or they’re still the same old KKK members of the Jim Crow era.
