Innocent Lives Lost: Rioting, Looting and Chaos Continue Nationwide
Upon his retirement, Dorn then became police chief in Moline Acres, a small city on the outskirts of St. Louis in which black Americans comprise of over 90% of the population.
Tim Fitch, current councilman St. Louis County councilman and a former St. Louis County police chief, remembered Dorn as a “true public servant.”
Moreover, another black officer was killed in riots over the weekend in Oakland, California. A federal officer who was providing security at a U.S. courthouse during a protest was murdered upon someone firing shots from a vehicle.
Dave Patrick Underwood, 53, was fatally wounded and another officer was critically wounded. No one has been arrested.
Underwood and the other individual were contracted security officers employed by the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service. They were monitoring a nearby protest.
Underwood was the brother of Angela Underwood Jacobs, who recently ran as a Republican candidate for California’s 25th Congressional District seat.
In Davenport, Iowa, police are investigating the deaths of 22-year-old Italia Kelly, who was shot Monday while leaving a protest outside of a Walmart, and of a man, whose body was found near where suspects engaged in a firefight. No arrests have been made.

Decent Americans all over are begging for the violence to end.
“There are human beings that live in this neighborhood!” A New York City woman’s impassioned plea to a group of looters to stop what they were doing is resonating with people across the country. https://t.co/UGmkYrbO5S pic.twitter.com/LnGMFNbNET
