David Born, A black American police man was shot and killed outside of a looted shop on tuesday due to the ongoing protest in US.
David Born is a 77 year-old retired police captain. He died triying to stop the looters.
Today makes it exactly eight days since the protests for the murder of George Floyd began on the 26th of May, 2020. The protest started in response to the death of George Floyd after a Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck till he gave up the ghost. According to reports he died due to asphyxiation.
Since the inception of this protest, there have been many collateral losses due to the violence perpetuated by some of the Protesters in the ongoing peaceful protest. David Born is one of such losses.
The body of the police officer was found outside of the shop where he was killed at about 2 A.M on tuesday while trying to stop the looters. His death was an unfortunate one, especially to his family. He was a husband, a father and a grandfather. He will be greatly missed. The police officer, David dorn joined the police force between 1969 and 1970. He retired in October 1007 as a captain.
According to reports, David always helped shop owners in the locality fend off thieves and criminals. And that is what he tried to do when he was shot yesterday. His death was a painful loss, not just to his family but to the residents and shop owners of st Louis.
The news about his death was also posted by Donald Trump on Twitter. He regretted the death of the police captain and sympathized with the family.
“Our highest respect to the family of David Dorn, a Great Police Captain from St. Louis, who was viciously shot and killed by despicable looters last night. We honor our police officers, perhaps more than ever before. Thank you!” – Donald Trump. https://t.co/0ouUpoJEQ4
Many of such violence against police officers have been recorded during the protest.
Yesterday, In St. Louis, four police officers were shot during violent protests just after midnight on Tuesday, June 2nd. Two days ago, a police officer was rammed by a car by an unknown protester, Two officers were seriously injured and subsequently hospitalized.
Personally, I think the protest should be peaceful rather than violent, because, hurt cannot pacify hurt. No matter the amount of police officer that is killed or injured, the life of the victim, George Floyd cannot be brought back. God bless America.
