A plea from Kelly Thomas' grieving father, Ron Thomas, was posted September 29, 2011 on youtube. Mr. Thomas is succinct: simply asking demonstrators to be respectful, to stop using profanity; because Kelly wouldn't have liked it. It is my hope that his request is honored. It is my prayer that Kelly's family be loved and supported in seeking justice; while still grieving their loss. May all of us who support their noble quest for justice, remember to honor Kelly as his father has asked; with integrity.
