Smith has asked TTU fans to wear blue in honor of Officer East and his family, as well as, show support to all law enforcement during this tragic time. 

"I encourage everyone just to show their support to Officer East to their family and local law enforcement and law enforcement all over the country and world, and send a message that we support our local law enforcement here in Lubbock and Texas Tech does as well," Smith said. "We are not a city of hatred towards our police officers."

His petition has almost 9,000 signature as of Friday evening at 8:45 p.m. Find it here: Blue Out the Jones v.s. ISU
