If you’re going to preach Black Lives Matter you better include every damn one of them.

A person shot to death David Dorn, a retired St. Louis police captain. Dorn responded to an alarm at a pawn shop, which was being looted during riots.

President Donald Trump remembered Dorn. Where is Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, etc?

David Dorn mattered as much as George Floyd.

The police department and his son Brian Powell remembered Dorn as a man who had a passion to help “help young people and would have forgiven those behind the violence on the city’s street.”

Dorn had five children and ten grandchildren:

Dorn had been passionate about helping young people, Powell said, and he believed his father would have forgiven those behind the violence and tried to talk to them.

“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,” Powell told KTVI.

“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 said.

Powell’s reflections were echoed in a tweet by the Ethical Society of Police, which read, “(Dorn) 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. RIP Captain!”
