Ann Dorn, widow of slain St. Louis Police Cpt. David Dorn, published a scathing op-ed on Tuesday in which she blasted Black Lives Matter and Vice President Kamala Harris for their role in stoking racial and political tensions nationwide.

David Dorn died in June 2020 when Stephan Cannon fatally shot him, with onlookers live-streaming his death as he bled out. Cannon was found guilty of first degree murder in July of this year.

"David became a cop because when he was a little boy he wanted to be a superhero. And he was a superhero. But if real life superheroes exist, so do supervillains," Ann Dorn wrote in a Fox News piece. "Those supervillains are people like the man who killed my husband. They are people like billionaire George Soros, who use their power and influence to promote extremist politics and fan the flames of division."

"They are people like Vice President Kamala Harris, who raised money for the rioters’ bail funds, and the CEOs of prominent companies who blindly gave their support and money to this," she continued. "If a foreign organization were tied to nationwide rioting in the U.S., we’d probably call it a terrorist organization."

Dorn went on to berate Black Lives Matter for failing to recognize an array of black individuals who died or suffered damages due to riots or crime.

"David didn’t agree with or support Black Lives Matter," she continued. "He never understood Black Lives Matter, because it never actually did anything to help Black lives."

"The same year David was killed, over a dozen children were shot in St. Louis, and never once did Black Lives Matter show up," she lamented. "Their lives mattered. Fifty-five businesses were looted or destroyed the night David was murdered, many of them Black-owned. Their livelihoods mattered."

"My husband was a Black man who selflessly served his community for over 40 years," she concluded. "His life mattered."
