“One of the people murdered last night was a retired St. Louis City Captain,” the Ethical Society of Police tweeted Tuesday morning. “He was murdered by looters at a pawnshop. He was the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to.  Violence is not the answer, whether it’s a citizen or officer. RIP Captain!”
