Riot Victim’s Widow Blasts ‘Supervillains’ BLM, Soros And Kamala

In a Fox News op-ed, Ann Dorn condemned Black Lives Matter, George Soros and Vice President Kamala Harris as “supervillains” who contributed to the murder of her husband, David Dorn, during the summer of riots in 2020.

David and Ann Dorn were together for 30 years and married for 14 of those years, but that all ended on the morning of June 2, 2020, when David was gunned down at the height of the Black Lives Matter Riots that raged across the country that summer.

“Although David was retired from the police force at the time, he never retired from serving his community,” Ann explains, noting that her husband agreed to be the “point of contact” for his friend’s pawn shop alarm at his store just ten minutes away from their home.

“On the night of June 1, 2020, St. Louis erupted in violence as Black Lives Matter descended upon the city,” she adds.

Early in the morning on June 2, several alarms informed David that someone had broken into the pawn shop. Despite knowing that rioters had been shooting “at firefighters and police officers” and “that the city was consumed by violence and chaos,” he still chose to head down to the shop to do his duty.

When David arrived at the scene, he discovered rioters inside the store and simply asked them to leave. Instead of complying with his request, a man named Stephen Cannon — who was just found guilty of first-degree murder — shot and killed David.

“David told them it wasn’t worth it, that there was little of value in the shop that wasn’t tightly locked up,” Dorn wrote. “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.”

“David became a cop because when he was a little boy he wanted to be a superhero,” she added. “And he was a superhero. But if real life superheroes exist, so do supervillains.”

Dorn went on to state that those supervillains “are people like the man who killed my husband” and others who supported the violent rioters, specifically mentioning the Black Lives Matter movement, Democrat donor George Soros and Vice President Kamala Harris, who was a California senator at the time.

“They are people like billionaire George Soros, who use their power and influence to promote extremist politics and fan the flames of division,” she wrote. “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.”

Dorn noted that her husband didn’t support or understand the BLM movement because the movement didn’t actually seem to care about the lives of black Americans, especially because they destroyed black-owned businesses during the riots and refused to show up when black people, especially children, are shot in cities like St. Louis when it doesn’t fit their anti-police agenda.

“David didn’t agree with or support Black Lives Matter,” she added. “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.”

Dorn concluded by asserting that her husband was murdered because the government barred police from doing their jobs.

“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… 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,” she concluded.

This is not the first time Ann Dorn spoke out about the incident. She also appeared at the Republican National Convention in August of 2020 following David’s murder, giving an emotional speech about her husband and in support of law and order.
