Tom Lake: “One of those guys you could rely on no matter the situation. He’s like the father we all wanted to be around all the time.”
(Reporter: “All he can think about is his friend’s last moments…”)
Tom Lake: “Probably how alone he felt after being injured and not having anybody there, because I’ve been there through that.”Interview with Tom Lake, former police Sergeant and friend of Dorn, (he was also shot in the line of duty).
There is not enough coverage about retired police chief, David Dorn’s murder. He was a 77 yr old husband, father and grandfather. He was known for trying to help especially young people to have a better future than they were exposed to in their neighborhoods. The same young, black men that he wanted to help, killed him when he was trying to protect a Pawn and Jewelry store that his friend owned. He was found bleeding on the sidewalk in front of the shop. Opportunistic scammers even set up fake Go Fund Me donations for his murder to benefit themselves not David Dorn’s family. How evil can people be?
If black lives really matter to Black Lives Matter why doesn’t His life matter? He survived for 77 yrs, half of those years were spent protecting lives while on the police force, and he was gunned down by opportunistic thieves. I don’t hear BLM mentioning the murder of black police, black shop owners or the black community, (black on black crimes). They only stress that property damage is unimportant as if that’s the only violence that’s happening. They conveniently don’t mention the extreme violence that’s been happening nationwide against innocent people. I consider them to be part of the problem, they create more racial divide with their misinformation.
Whether the victims were black or not, all of their lives matter. BLM is hypocritical, to them only CBLM (certain black lives matter), the ones that fit their political agenda. BLM could do the right thing by condoning the maiming and murdering of people in senseless riots and looting but they remain suspiciously silent. Defunding the police is not a solution, police reform is possible but eradicating the entire police system is stupidity. There are good and bad people, it’ll always be this way because you can’t control the choices that people make. We need good police to protect us, it’s not that complicated.
I live in the liberal state of California and I work in one of the most liberal institutions of the government; I’m surrounded by liberal rhetoric all day. I have to listen and pretend that I agree when my coworkers talk about defunding the police and how proud they are of the protestors. One coworker suggested that we march and protest the police. I mentioned the rioters and looting just once and my comment was mostly ignored. Rose colored glasses syndrome makes me feel like everyone’s been brainwashed by the liberal-owned mainstream narrative.
I don’t like Trump and don’t support him but everyone’s so distracted by their hatred of him that they can’t see anything but that hatred. The national guard was called because the local states would not or could not protect themselves, what’s so difficult to understand about that? All 4 cops who helped to murder George Floyd were arrested, the protestors act like nothing has been done. Why can’t people see this?
Because of the collapse of the economy first due to covid-19 and now due to the riots; I was told that my paycheck will be indefinitely cut. It doesn’t just effect me, all of my coworkers have to take mandatory leave without pay with no incremental raises. All the “temporary” employees were laid-off indefinitely too. We had to strike last year for a week for get long overdue raises and now what we gained has been taken away.
I think the covid-19 shut down was unnecessary. Most people would’ve recovered from this virus. They should’ve quarantined the elderly and medically vulnerable but not the entire world. I’m angry and tired of this situation. Rioters are too, I think they’re just using Floyd’s death as an excuse for anarchy and looting. When will this insanity stop? When the world’s been completely destroyed? Is that what the Elites want while they wait in safety in their luxury bunkers?
This is not a revolution, it’s potentially the demise of the civilized world. Are we going to let this continue? Our silence perpetuates ignorance. I’m risking people labeling me as a racist to get this information out. I’m not a racist because I seek real justice and change through peaceful methods. When will the voice of logic be heard loud enough to block out the screaming madness of the mob? We the people, are stronger than the rulers, but we need to unite under a just cause. George Floyd’s death was tragic but it shouldn’t cause the end of the world. That’s exactly what’s happening and good, well-intentioned people are helping to make it happen. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
