Thank God the Post-Dispatch had the institutional knowledge to publish this story. Creve CoeurRead More hasn't really changed. Leaders wanted to do stupid things then. Leaders want to do stupid things today.

Thanks, for doing such a wonderful and complete coverage of a Strong, Black, Family man. RichardRead More Dockett was all of this and more he did so much that most people didn't even know about, and yet he pushed on. Many people called upon Richard and received the benefits of his help without having to beg or pay. Richard asked only that they would try and do better, nor would he exploit what he did , he just continued to do.

PLEASE!!!! let me clear up something about Mr. Dockett, he cared about ALL YOUTH & ADULTS, NORead More MATTER the color of their skin. He helped the community, neighborhoods and the schools. So please don't think like that of him. I have known Mr. Dockett for over 30 years and their was NOT a racist bone in his body. Please let him R.I.P. He was a positive man in this community. He stood up for all when needed be. No matter of the age or race.

This conversation between the commenters is going way too far, Richard and I both are positive forRead More youth and the community. It is a disservice to his memory to continue with this diatribe and I will not continue to refute people who want to turn every word I write into negativity. Let me finish by saying my record in this community and for the betterment of all youth would stand head and shoulders above most citizens in U. City. R. I am well aware of The Patch policy, when they started it was you needed to use your name and when they changed about a year or so ago, it was, indeed, a low point of a good publication. The St. Louis Post doesn't let riff raff (people who are afraid are ashamed of their views) like you, post editorial comments, not that it is the greatest newspaper.

Holston- Your own words were negative and racist, no one but yourself is to blame for that, no oneRead More turned your words into anything else. By consistently using the terms "Black role model", "our people", "our youth", "Black causes" and calling me a klan member for not using my last name on Patch, was the only negativity, and these were all your words. As far as the Patch policies of not requiring full names, you are welcome to not read, post or blog on the Patch if it's policy changes were such a low point of a good publication. It took a while, but through your last post, we finally get something that doesn't refer to the skin color of the person that you and Mr. Docket are positive for and doesn't refer to the youth of the community as "our youth", "our people". Thanks for finally coming out from under your rock Holston.
