Mayor F. Richard Jones M.D.
UPDATE, 2:08 p.m.: An official with the city of Fullerton tells us that the KFI reports of Fullerton Mayor Dick Jones stepping down are false.

"The Mayor is not resigning," says Public Information Officer for the city of Fullerton Sylvia Palmer. "When he left city hall today the media was outside and he was asked point blank 'was he resigning.' His response was 'no, we still have a lot of work to do.'"

According to Palmer, KFI's report may have stemmed from a conversation between Ron Thomas, the father of Kelly Thomas, and the mayor in which the mayor said "he had considered retiring."

ORIGINAL POST 1:43 p.m.: KFI News is reporting that besieged Fullerton Mayor Dick Jones is planning to resign according to talk radio station KFI.



Jones has been under constant fire from Fullerton citizens and other public figures since the death of homeless man Kelly Thomas at the hands of Fullerton Police. According to the talk radio station Jones told Kelly Thomas' father Ron of his plans to step down this morning. Check back for details as they develop.

My vote is for someone new and it had better be about someone who supports Peace Officers... we don't need Police, we need Peace. ☼

You know, they like calling him F. Richard Jones a "medical doctor." I'm sure he's got a degree. But do you know what kind of doctor he is: HE'S A BOOB DOCTOR! YEs, that's right, hundreds of OC women have, over the years, started Dick Jones in the face as he augmented the sizes of their breasticles. Just thought the world would like to know that.

Your immaturity is showing.  Dr. Jones devoted many years in the Air Force and in private practice to repair facial injuries (and other serious disfigurements) as part of his practice.  His patients will tell you (as will his medical staff) that he is one of the most compassionate men they have known.  Seeing the injuries that young man sustained most assuredly evoked that same deep compassion.  I suggest you delve further into the life of a man of service to his country, his patients and his community before making insulting and ignorant comments.

You took the words right out of my mouth, Brandon. Marjorie, your stupidity is showing. ANYONE with half a brain knows Jones was not compassionate whatsoever about the horrific injuries Kelly suffered at the hands of those monsters. Not only did he not give a flying f*ck...he tried to downplay and hide the truth. If you actually believe the drivel you posted in that comment- then I truly pity you.

Yeah, he showed a ton of compassion when he downplayed Kelly Thomas' injuries by saying he'd seen worse. Perhaps some of the negative comments would stop if he would publicly admit that the murder and subsequent cover up attempt were not of his doing instead of trying to protect the FPD's reputation by insulting the Thomas family.
