The wife of a retired St. Louis Metro Police captain killed during a Black Lives Matter riot blasted “supervillains” like billionaire culture destroyer George Soros and Vice President Kamala Harris for his death.
In a column for Fox News, Ann Dorn, a retired police sergeant herself with 20 years’ service, talked about her husband David, who was murdered at the age of 77 when he was investigating alarms going off at a friend’s pawn shop in the city, writing that his death resulted as local police “were ordered not to do their jobs.”
“David became a cop because when he was a little boy he wanted to be a superhero,” Ann Dorn wrote. “And he was a superhero. But if real life superheroes exist, so do supervillains.”
“Those supervillains are people like the man who killed my husband. They are people like, billionaire George Soros, who use their power and influence to promote extremist politics and fan the flames of division. They are people like Vice President Kamala Harris, who raised money for the rioters’ bail funds, and the CEOs of prominent companies who blindly gave their support and money to this,” she added.
David Dorn served with the St. Louis MPD for 38 years, then for a stint as police chief in nearby Moline Acres. As he approached Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry shop the evening of June 2, 2020, after an alarm was set off, he was shot 10 times by 24-year-old Stephan Cannon, who was eventually convicted of first-degree murder.

“David didn’t agree with or support Black Lives Matter,” Ann Dorn wrote of her husband. “He never understood Black Lives Matter, because it never actually did anything to help Black lives. The same year David was killed, over a dozen children were shot in St. Louis, and never once did Black Lives Matter show up. Their lives mattered. Fifty-five businesses were looted or destroyed the night David was murdered, many of them Black-owned. Their livelihoods mattered. My husband was a Black man who selflessly served his community for over 40 years. His life mattered.”
“Ultimately, David was murdered because the people who are supposed to protect our streets — active-duty police officers — were ordered not to do their jobs. It is clear that the anti-law enforcement sentiment that has been fueled in this country by Democrat and left-wing activist rhetoric has gone too far. Yes, there are bad cops out there, but addressing bad policing by ordering no policing at all is not a solution. It is extremist, it is dangerous, and it cost my husband his life,” Ann Dorn concluded.
As noted by The Daily Wire:
Soros has spent $28 million to support leftist candidates for district attorney in cities across the nation in cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, The Daily Mail noted.
Harris publicly supported the Minnesota Freedom Fund during the summer riots of 2020. She tweeted, “If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.”

The next year, in the summer 2021, the fund bailed out George Howard, 48, who was being held on charges of domestic abuse. Weeks after he was released, he was charged the murder of a driver in a road-rage incident.
“The Republican Party did reach out to me, several of them, just to offer their condolences,” Ann Dorn noted in a past interview. “Donald Trump did call; Donald Trump has a history of calling law enforcement and first responders’ families when somebody is lost in the line of duty; to offer his condolences, offer his help; that was nothing new. Dave was actually known in the community and he worked with a lot of Democrats, and I didn’t get one phone call or any condolence from any of them.”
No Dem friends reached after husband, Police Capt #DavidDorn was killed in BLM riots:
"You'd think a friend would call or offer condolences and they did not. They made it a very political issue." —#AnnDorn
