David Dorn murder: St. Louis man found guilty in death of retired police captain during night of looting
Stephan Cannon, 26, faces life in prison without parole for gunning down retired St. Louis Police Capt. David Dorn during a night of looting in June 2020.

A Missouri jury found Stephan Cannon, the 26-year-old accused of gunning down retired St. Louis Police Capt. David Dorn during a night of looting and rioting in June 2020, guilty on all counts Wednesday.

"Justice has been served," his family told reporters outside the courthouse in videos posted online.

The trial had gone to the jury just hours earlier when the defense rested its case.

Court records show jurors twice asked the court questions before returning the verdict after just over 3 hours of deliberations.

Cannon was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, stealing $750 or more, unlawful possession of a firearm and three counts of armed criminal action - all felonies.

Dorn, 77, was responding to a burglar alarm at a friend's pawn shop when he encountered a group of looters outside.

Cannon, the man who prosecutors say shot Dorn dead and left him on the sidewalk, was among a half dozen men charged in connection with the incident.

The aftermath was allegedly caught on video that had been shared to Facebook Live and later removed. Prosecutors played it in court.

Cannon's public defender Brian Horneyer had argued in his opening remarks that there was no physical evidence linking his client to the killing and said the state's main witness, also charged with a slew of felonies, had told detectives he would say "anything" to get a plea deal and escape a murder conviction.

However, prosecutors said Cannon was the only person standing on a nearby corner where the shots came from, when they were fired.

After the slaying, investigators reportedly recovered a pistol, televisions and pieces of Cannon's dreadlocks from an apartment where he was staying, but did not locate the handgun that Cannon is believed to have used in the shooting.

Cannon's sentencing was set for Sept. 13. He faces life in prison without parole.

Dorn had served 38 years in St. Louis' Metropolitan Police Department and six more as chief in Moline Acres.

"I'm very glad that justice was served for Capt. Dorn," said Paul Mauro, an attorney and former NYPD inspector who has been closely following the case. "But make no mistake - the conditions that allowed his killing should never have occurred."

Dorn should have been enjoying his retirement by now, he added.

"The summer 2020 riots resulted in some 15 times more injured police officers, 30 times as many arrests, and estimated damages in dollar terms up to 1,300 times more costly than those of the Capitol riot. George Floyd rioters were found to have used more sophisticated and dangerous tactics than did the Capitol rioters, and in some cases weapons of greater lethality.

-Authorities have pursued the largely Trump-supporting Capitol rioters with substantially more vigor than suspected wrongdoers in the earlier two cases. Many accused Capitol rioters, unlike accused participants in the other riots, have been held in pretrial detention for months – with one defendant serving more time than the maximum sentence for the charge to which he pleaded guilty. Some allegedly endured solitary confinement and other mistreatment.

-With authorities applying lenient prosecutorial standards in many major cities torn by the summer riots, the vast majority of charges last year were dismissed, as were charges in the Inauguration 2017 unrest. Charges have to date been dropped in only a single Capitol riot case."

Not I...Real Clear Investigations did an in-depth analysis and they found that the two things weren't even equal, rather: the infamous "summer of Love" was far worse.

It's in the article and you can click on the report.

It makes for good reading.

Why did you have to dig up this garbage from over two years ago?  Obviously all you have is old news.  

Deflection, projection and denial from the criminal acts of #45 leading up to and on 1/6/21.

#45 is still asking people to decertify that election.

Because the trial just concluded. Which shows you didn't read the article like normal. Maybe you are afraid of catching cooties from a Fox website?

So here- from a regional media source.

This one murder alone puts the total from the "Summer or love" total above the amount of police killed by Jan 6th rioters.

This has nothing to do with the President. This murderer was convicted of killing a retired police officer, in what the media couched as peaceful protests.

This looter and criminal (dog whistle) was not a part of any protest.  

If he looted and killed a police officer, he's a criminal, not a protester.

This person obviously wasn't involved in any protest.

He was looting and shot a police officer.

That's not a protest.   Those were criminal acts by someone.

It IS easier to just pretend that sources aren't provided, or don't say what they actually say, than it is to read them and comprehend them.

"Uh uh!" is the go to response to the truth when it destroys a leftist narrative.

I'm sure its just coincidental that this story is emphasized by the right wing of Newstalkers on the same day Trump will be savaged again by the facts of Jan 6 at the latest committee hearing.

Let’s all hope that he does receive life without parole. One less piece of murderous shit walking the streets!
