Judge Sentences BLM Rioter Convicted of Killing Police Captain to Life in Prison without Parole

A judge has thrown the book at the Black Lives Matter rioter convicted of shooting and killing retired police captain David Dorn during the BLM riots.

In July, a jury found Stephan Cannon, 26, guilty of first-degree murder.

On Wednesday, Judge Theresa Counts Burke sentenced him to life in prison without parole.

Dorn’s widow, Ann Wood-Dorn, said: “He became a victim of the very thing he fought against.”

Dorn’s daughter, Lisa Dorn, said he was “murdered by the type of young man my father tried to save.”

She previously ask the judge to give Cannon life in prison as a birthday present for her father.

His birthday is October 29.

Dorn’s son, Brian Powell spoke during the sentencing.

“I hope your eyes are woke,” he said.

“You still have time to get everything together and make amends with your maker.”

Dorn, 77, was responding to a burglary alarm at a friend’s pawn shop when he came upon a group of looters.

He was struck four times and died from his injuries.
