Cop Killer FINALLY Sentenced…Justice is Served

Stephan Cannon, 26, convicted murderer of retired St. Louis police captain David Dorn, 77, during a 2020 BLM Riot was sentenced on Wednesday in Missouri.

Cannon, has been sentenced to life in prison as well as an additional 30 years for his other crimes according to The Daily Wire. In addition to first-degree murder in the death of Dorn, on June 2 during the BLM Riots, Cannon was convicted of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, theft of $750 or more, unlawful possession of a firearm, and three counts of armed criminal action, all of them felonies under Missouri law.

As reported by Christine Byers of NBC affiliate KSDK-TV via Twitter, Judge Theresa Counts Burke dropped the hammer on Cannon inflicting the maximum possible sentences for all of his crimes. She imposed a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of parole as well as the maximum allowed sentence for each charge to be served concurrently.

“This is the maximum sentence the law allows,” Counts Burke said to Cannon at sentencing, adding, “Your life does continue on and this is a choice you have to make, how do you continue on?”


In the July conviction, a jury found that Dorn was murdered while protecting a friend’s pawn shop from looters and rioters during the 2020 BLM riots that ravaged 200+ American cities. They found that as Cannon approached the store, he fired ten shots at Dorn striking him.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported that Cannon has maintained his innocence. “To the family, I am sorry for their loss,” he said and denied killing Dorn. His attorney said he planned to appeal.

Dorn’s family members said they were pleased that “justice was served,” according to the Post-Dispatch.

Lisa Dorn said in court that her father, “was murdered by the same type of gentleman my father tried to set an example for his entire life,” adding, “Our father was a good cop, but more importantly, he was a good man.”

Dorn’s widow, Ann Dorn, told the judge during sentencing. “He became a victim of the very thing he fought against,” she said, she added also that Cannon would have to seek God’s forgiveness because she could not give him hers.

“Today I chose to be a survivor. I cannot live my life as a victim,” she added. She also told the court that the incident had left her with PTSD which has led her to retire early from the police force.

Looking to Cannon, Mrs. Dorn said: “I’ll never give you a second thought.” She then asked the judge to hand down the maximum possible sentence, and Judge Counts Burke obliged her.
