Ron Thomas Pokes Fun at Michael Brown's Death

Ron Thomas, the father of police victim Kelly Thomas, is making fun of the murder of Michael Brown on Facebook. I am sure Ron, a former police officer, showed the same lack of human compassion to his dead son, which is probably why Kelly was homeless and left to be murdered as a "useless eater." People who disregard the right to life for minorities generally feel that handicapped people don't deserve to breathe, either. Read the history of Nazi Germany, which started its genocide by killing over 300,000 people with mental and physical disabilities BEFORE starting on Jews and Blacks. The same hatred that killed Kelly Thomas killed Michael Brown. Thank you, La Mesha Irizarry for pointing out Ron Thomas's very insensitive post about Brown wherein he actually made fun of Brown's murder. Thomas showed the video from the store (said to be Mike Brown stealing cigars) and wrote: 

"And heres little "Mikey Brown" as he is leaving the liquor store with his "5 finger discounted" smokes. All 290 pounds of him!"

Upon receiving criticism for his post, Ron Thomas then wrote:

"Because I re-post a publicly released video showing a 290 pound 18 year old robing and assaulting the clerk, I'm a racist.
Good luck with [that] one.
To make it clear, I DON'T LIKE BAD GUYS!
I don't care what the color of their skin is.
I didn't make any comment about the shooting, or the cop that shot him, and yet you can clearly think that I am a racist.
My whole point was (and you are not the only one too blind to see it) that he was not the little angel that so many are trying to make him out to be.
I never said that he should have been shot or anything like that.
You like so many others knew right away that Brown was "Murdered" by a white racist cop.
Share your proof and facts with me so I can also get on the band wagon and burn cars, rob stores, block freeways and major streets without even knowing why I am doing it.
All that I want is some proof that Brown was Murdered by a white racist cop as you think.
Can you give me that?
Anyone, tell me the facts, no making up crap just because you think so, but some facts. "


Ron Thomas, father of Kelly Thomas, on Facebook

Neither Michael Brown nor any other unarmed black teenager must prove to be a "little angel" to have a right to life, Ron Thomas. Insinuating that Officer Wilson had a right to kill Brown because of stolen cigars is ridiculous. Whereas you want sympathy for your son's death by police, you imply that police had every right to kill Brown, who was also unarmed and reportedly posed no threat to Wilson. It leads one to wonder how safe people's sons were while you were a police officer.

Luckily, there was a video of Kelly Thomas being beaten to death, but there was no live video of Michael Brown being shot to death. However, many witnesses came forward to assert that Brown was surrendered when he was killed, just as your son was as he begged for his life. It should not be hard for someone who watched his own son die at the hands of six merciless police officers to believe the same thing could have happened to Michael Brown. I remain a supporter of justice for Kelly Thomas, especially now that I understand why he was homeless. 

Thank you for giving Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill.
It would be illegal to keep a dog in a tight space 23 hours a day and gas or Taser him for barking. It would be illegal to put a dog in deadly restraint for control. That happens to mentally ill people routinely in the nation's correctional facilities. What happened to Larry Neal?

I want to remind Ron Thomas that the person called police on Kelly Thomas because it was believed that he was trying to find an unlocked car from which to steal personal possessions. That could be true or false. In any case Kelly did not deserve to be beaten to death, just as Michael Brown did not deserve to be shot to death (whether or not he had stolen cigars that Wilson reportedly did not even know made Brown a suspect).

and its known by the store employee's admission,that the owner had told them to do whatever it took to have police get kelly out of their area.

If so, I am sure the store owner had no intention of Thomas being beaten to death by police, Unknown. I hope the store's proprietor does not blame himself.

Furthermore, I regret implying that Ron Thomas caused Kelly's death by abandonment. Kelly's killers were police and only them. We are amazed there were none sentenced.

If Ron Thomas should have done more for Kelly than he did, I am sure he regrets that. But seeing Kelly being killed like he was should make people have at least an open mind about police fatalities. I was very disappointed that Ron showed so little compassion for parents in his same situation.

Ron Thomas accuses others of jumping to conclusions and saying a racist cop shot Michael Brown, but he jumps to conclusions about protesters by saying they set fires and looted. How does he know the cops did not set the fires, as this video seems to show?

"They" may have set most or all of the fires. For example, when the man dressed like a soldier used the flash grenade to ignite the car next to the Auto Zone, his actions probably caused the Auto Zone fire.

I'm so tired of hearing about the stolen cigarillos. Ferguson PD only showed a portion of the video to suit their agenda. Had they shown more, it shows Michael Brown paying for them. The store owner has also publicly stated that he paid for them. Regardless, Darren Wilson had no knowledge of any of this because it didn't happen. The events start at the point he pulled up on Michael.

On a side note, his interview with George Stephanopoulos showed he was lying from the start.
