Dorn wrote a withering op-ed on Fox News blasting the Black Lives Matter movement and leftist radicals for dividing America.
She is a retired sergeant from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and is the widow of Capt. David Dorn. Dorn published the piece on Fox News Tuesday asserting that her husband’s murder was the fault of Democrats and left-wing activists promoting an anti-law enforcement sentiment across the nation.
“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,” she stated.
“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,” Dorn charged.

Married 14 years to her late husband, she recalled how he died in June 2020 during the riots in St. Louis. Dorn noted that her husband may have been retired at the time but he “never retired from serving his community.”
“One of our friends owned a pawn shop, which was only 10 minutes from our house but nearly an hour away from where our friend lived. Because of this, David was the point of contact for the alarm system and would check on the shop whenever the alarm went off. He had been doing this for 30 years,” she recounted.
“On the night of June 1, 2020, St. Louis erupted in violence as Black Lives Matter descended upon the city. Buildings were burned, businesses were looted, and rioters shot at firefighters and police officers,” Dorn said.
“In the early hours of June 2, 2020, David got the call that multiple alarms had been tripped and someone was in the pawn shop. He went to check on the shop, knowing that the city was consumed by violence and chaos,” she continued.
“When he arrived at the shop, David confronted a few of the rioters outside, one of whom was a man named Stephan Cannon. David told them it wasn’t worth it, that there was little of value in the shop that wasn’t tightly locked up. Moments later Cannon shot David in the chest. He bled out on the sidewalk. A third rioter live-streamed the entire incident, and we later learned that one of the many viewers who watched David’s murder unfold was David’s eldest grandson,” Dorn added.
Cannon was found guilty of first-degree murder in the police captain’s death in July.

Dorn told how her husband wanted to be a superhero as a child which drove him to become a police officer.
“And he was a superhero,” she commented. “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,” Dorn remarked. “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.”
“If a foreign organization were tied to nationwide rioting in the U.S., we’d probably call it a terrorist organization,” she said, alluding to Black Lives Matter.
The late police captain was black but he did not support the Black Lives Matter movement. Dorn claimed her husband did not understand it 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,” she wrote. “Their livelihoods mattered. My husband was a black man who selflessly served his community for over 40 years. His life mattered.”
