What Does Justice For Ricky Ball Really Look Like?
Ricky Ball will NEVER hold his daughter again!!! This is the point of reference we must start from to deal with every person involved in his death! Including; but not limited to, Canyon Boykin, Yolanda Young and Johnny Branch. These three incompetent criminals actually have the nerve to ask for their jobs back, as if they have done nothing wrong. We will outline here what we know they have done wrong, even without the MBI investigation report.
A. Canyon Boykin: He has been telling more lies than the law should allow. In this case he has literally been obstructing justice from day one! (1) He was seen threatening Ricky the week before he killed Ricky. (2) He lied like he stopped the car that Ricky was riding in for careless driving and some other mess, when he was really stopping the car because a narc agent told him to stop the car BECAUSE Ricky was in the car. So if he (and his former police chief) started off lying to the public, then what else is he/they lying about?--a lot-- (3) He lied like he tased Ricky before he started shooting at Ricky, but that was impossible. The company that makes the TASER product for law enforcement advertises an effective range of 15ft. That's about 5 steps for the average person. Everyone that knows Ricky Ball knows that Ricky was lightning fast! Witnesses say that Ricky was out of the car and running before Boykin even opened his car door. There is no way Boykin ever got within 5 steps of Ricky until AFTER he had shot Ricky! (4) On top of this lie, Boykin said he knocked Ricky down with a TASER, but like a machine, Ricky supposedly got up while having electricity running through him and had the strength to start running again, oh yeah, and decided to just point a gun at Boykin, but not shoot Boykin (who does that??)...before we even get into why this is scientifically impossible; we are going to point out the obvious...Boykin wants you to believe that all of this happened WITHIN 10 SECONDS! His former police chief has already said at the Oct. 20 city council meeting that one of the three officers radioed that shots had been fired 10 seconds after the initial traffic stop. So, when you take off the seconds it took just to talk, let alone get out of the car, Boykin wants you to believe he chased Ricky, tased Ricky, but Ricky somehow recovered from the TASER, started running again, then supposedly pointed a gun at Boykin...ALL WITHIN 3 SECONDS!!! Canyon Boykin should already be in jail based on these facts ALONE! Also, the TASER company says the TASER breaks the communication between the brain and the muscles and that it takes SEVERAL MINUTES for a person to recover from a TASER shot. According to the company who makes the TASER, it was scientifically impossible for things to happen the way Boykin said they happened. Surely, we are not the only people who are aware of this fact. (5) When Boykin did finally turn on his recording equipment, he is on camera saying that some man that he does not know pointed a gun at him before he started shooting...Now, how do you NOT know who someone is when you threatened them a week before and was told a few minutes earlier by a narcotics agent to stop this person??? The Real question is why is Canyon Boykin not locked up somewhere already?
B. Yolanda Young: Besides the fact that she has been going onto Ricky Ball's family members jobs harassing them, Yolanda Young has had enough recording equipment violations in the one week that Ricky Ball was killed to have been fired several times. For several days, she did not even wear a body camera and audio recorder! CPD policy clears states that audio recording equipment should be used BEFORE engaging the public. Also, The policy does not say you have to work your way up to more severe punishment. Having someone killed on your watch and there be no recordings of what happened because you and your gang CHOSE not to follow police policy is as good a reason as any to fire Yolanda Young without a doubt. Termination was an available option for the city council when Young was first disciplined, but the council decided to be spare her. Why?
C. Johnny Branch: Branch is probably the least guilty of this gang, but he is guilty just the same. He, along with Boykin and Young, had several recording equipment violations on the day that Ricky Ball was killed as well. His failure to follow recording equipment policy also ensured that no immediated proof would exists to contradict Boykin's lies. He also said nothing about the lies that were being told about why the car that Ricky was in was really stopped. He could have also made sure that Ricky was taken to the hospital right away, instead of allowing Ricky to lay on the ground forever and in the back of the ambulance as police entered and exited the ambulance waiting on Ricky to die. If he would have arrested or even attempted everyone that was there ensuring that Ricky bled out, then we could say spare him. But, since he wants to ride with his team they all should suffer the same fate. TERMINATION AND PRISON!
This is just part of what we mean when we say Justice For Ricky Ball. Ricky was somebody's son, somebody's brother and somebody's friend. This post is proof enough that Canyon Boykin, Yolanda Young and Johnny Branch, along with their former police chief, Tony Carleton, should have been fired, at minimum, the next day after Ricky Ball was killed.
Please leave your comments and share our blog. We have got to keep these persons from returning to our police department at the end of their suspension on Jan. 5, 2015. The city council is meeting today 12/30/15 to talk about giving them more slaps on the wrists. Let's make sure that our city council understands the time is over for slaps on the wrists. It is time for them to execute JUSTICE FOR RICKY BALL AND HIS CHILD!!! #iamrickyball #justiceforrickyball
