“C’mon home, man. One day it’s gonna be you & God. You’re going up or you’re going down…”
David Dorn was 77. He spent four decades protecting people as a police officer in St Louis and then came out of retirement to keep serving as Moline Acres' police chief.— Nate Madden (@NateOnTheHill) June 2, 2020
Looters shot him in the torso & he died bleeding on a sidewalk

My radical take:
I thought what happened to George Floyd was unjust but likely unintentional.
I also believe what the looters did to David Dorn was unjust and that it was murder.
Finally, the virus which has killed over 108,000 Americans was a monumental tragedy that isn’t even close to being over. I don’t think the people who are rioting care about any of this.
Note: The rapper Drake contributed $100,000 to pay the bail of rioters. #BlackLivesMatter
