The violence that has erupted after the death of suspect George Floyd after a Minneapolis police officer used his leg to pin him down by the neck for nearly nine minutes, has claimed another innocent life.
Retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, 77, was found dead on the sidewalk in front of a pawn shop early Tuesday morning. He was murdered by rioters who broke into the store when protests turned violent.
Dorn was said to have been "an outspoken leader who mentored youths and insisted on strict ethical conduct among his employees."
Dorn's murder was reportedly posted on Facebook Live, but the video has since been removed. Four police officers were shot, and rioters threw rocks and fireworks at them. Scores of businesses were vandalized and burglarized.
No arrests have been made in Dorn's death, so far.
"...when protests turned violent." I don't think for the most part the people protesting are the same people being violent. I suggest reading a July 2019 study from Michigan State and watching the following:
Todd Pellegrin says
Please work on compiling a list of the dead and injured in these riots. you are the only journalist who would be interested enough in the truth and the story and honest enough to keep a list of those innocent folks who have died at the hands of the rioters -- many of rioters who are white, and many of the victims in the riots who are black -- like Mr. Dorn above. But the MSM will not report on the deaths or injured occurring in the riot and nobody except you would keep a running list of all of them in the USA -
you are a hero --

FENTANYL......DEADLIEST DRUG IN THE WORLD THAT'S HOW MANY OF LISTING SAY IT ON GOOGLE MANY PEOPLE OVERDOSING ON IT ..WITH..respiratory depression the cause of death. ITS A EPIDEMIC.....THIS IS BAD FOR FLOYDS CASE ...TO SAY IT HAS NO BEARING IS RIDICULES.....FLOYD SAID "I CAN'T BREATH "THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS IN respiratory depression. I CAN GIVE YOU HUNDREDS OF CASE'S.respiratory depression.FROM fentanyl...... They are trying to sweep this under the rug to say it is meaningless in coroner's report ....THIS IS RIDICULES AND A LIE..... ITS.... ( DON'T LOOK HERE )....WE DON'T WANT ANOTHER RIOT ....SO LETS RAILROAD FOUR COPS FOR MURDER SO MR. CRUMP AND HIS PAID FOR CORONER'S REPORT'S CAN MAKE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN LAWSUITS AND LIBERAL MEDIA WILL BE HAPPY WITH THEIR ( IF IT BLEEDS IT LEADS RIOTS ) .... you call yourself an investigative reporter ... these are facts in the case even if they are unpopular
Are you an investigative reporter? How can it be that they're trying to railroad four cops? Did you not watch the videos? The cause of death was that his heart stopped....which will cause every single one of us to die. You, sir, don't know "the facts" in this case anymore than I do, but what I do know is that this case WOULD have been "swept under the rug" had it not been for those videos. What I do know is Captain David Dorn's death IS being "swept under the rug" because it doesn't fit the "narrative" of the BLM movement. AND...you, SIR, owe Ms Attkisson an apology. She IS one of the VERY FINEST Investigative Reporters in our lifetimes.

In the video, I saw a man die in front of my eyes ...as unpopular as it is.... OF AN OVERDOSE OF FENTANYL... WE ALL SHOULD WAIT for the FACTS IN A TRIAL (DUE PROCESS) THE OPTIC LOOK BAD BUT OPTICS ARE NOT FACTS.... ...IT IS LIKE IF YOU WALK INTO YOUR BOSSES OFFICE...HE IS DEAD ON THE FLOOR FROM A KNIFE WOUND...... YOU PICK UP THE KNIFE.... ..AT THAT MOMENT THE POLICE BURST IN …….. OPTICS LOOK BAD... BUT YOU ARE INNOCENT.
So, you're saying this whole thing is a ruse, not unlike the Michael Brown "Hands up! Don't shoot!" ? If that's true, then we've all been had. I've never witnessed any kind of overdose except on TV. Like when Uma Thurman overdoses on "China White" heroine in Pulp Fiction which shows her experiencing convulsions with white froth spewing out of her mouth. I assume that is vomit. She's not begging for her Mama, she's not crying out "They're killing me". She's too busy convulsing with her eyes rolling up into her head. Are you saying that overdosing on Fentanyl is somehow different than the way Hollywood depicts every single overdose they portray? I don't know....seriously? Perhaps I've led a very sheltered life (not). Maybe I'm easily duped by actors, but you're saying what you saw was a Fentanyl overdose not a homicide. Was that the first thing that came to your mind after you saw the video, or after you heard the ME's phony report? I know how you feel , though.....we are getting extremely skeptical about every thing these "authorities" tell and I think that's thanks to the James Comeys, the Andrew McCabes, the Susan Rices of the world.

MSM JUST reported Mr. Floyd had covid19 also reported the county's earlier summary report had listed fentanyl intoxication and recent methamphetamine use under “other significant conditions” but not under “cause of death.” The full report’s footnotes noted that signs of fentanyl toxicity can include “severe respiratory depression” and seizures. and seizures.respiratory depression is found with .........Overdoses of fentanyl.......It is the most dangerous drug in the world, an epidemic of overdoses, he had all the symptoms of overdosing.... while standing outside of the police car he said '" he can not breath "many time..... he upright not on the floor yet
