‘It’s sending the wrong message’: Daughters of slain police captain disagree with widow’s decision to speak at the RNC


    (KSDK/NBC News) On June 2, retired police captain David Dorn was shot and killed by suspected looters while responding to an alarm at a St. Louis, Missouri pawn shop.

    Captain Dorn retired from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department in 2007 after 38 years of service. He became Chief of Police for the Moline Acres Police Department in 2008.

    Dorn’s daughters are making passionate pleas. They believe Ann Dorn, their father’s widow, is now politicizing their father’s death.

    “I miss most about him, our talks. We talked almost every day and I just think about him all the time,” says Lisa Dorn.

    “He was just there for us. He was a great dad,” says Debra White, another of Dorn’s daughters.

    The daughters worry “their dad is being used as a poster child for violence against police officers.”

    “There were tweets from the president, calls from the White House and then came the invitation to the White House,” Lisa Dorn says.

    Tropical Storm Laura strengthened into a hurricane Tuesday morning as it moved past Cuba and toward Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico.

    The storm pounded Haiti, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic with heavy rain over the past few days, killing at least 13 people, according to reports.

    KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — The father of a Black man who was shot, apparently in the back, by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, says his son was left paralyzed from the waist down.

    Jacob Blake’s father told the Chicago Sun-Times that he was told his son was shot eight times during the Sunday evening confrontation with police, which was captured on cellphone video and led to two nights of unrest in the city between Milwaukee and Chicago.

    It’s out of fear of what’s being dubbed a “Twindemic” – flu and coronavirus pandemics happening at the same time.
