What Does Justice For Ricky Ball Really Look Like?
Lady Justice as used on our Facebook page's profile picture is an icon long associated with the fair/equitable execution of the law of the land. She wears a blindfold to show that she will not prejudice the scales of justice because of what you look like or who you appear to be. She will hear the facts and if your facts are outweighed by more substantial facts according to the law, then the heat of her sword's blade is your punishment because justice is, essentially, the proper execution of the law.
The Raised Fist has long been a symbol of solidarity and support. It also expresses strength and defiance in the face of an oppressive condition. We specifically use the raised fiery fist on our website because fire is a purifying element and a symbol of will power.
On the night that Ricky Ball was killed more justice could have been executed by the Police Chief and senior city officials who knew the details available on the night of October 16, 2015. Canyon Boykin, believed to be the shooter, reported that he shot Ricky Ball after Ricky pointed a gun at him, so Ricky would have been shot from the front if that was the truth. First, who just points a gun at someone like a police officer when they know the officer is going to try to kill them for such an act? Secondly, Ricky was shot from behind according to the coroner's report. This fact shows that Ricky was not facing Boykin when Boykin shot him. Tony Carleton, the former Chief of Police in Columbus, MS, has trained with the FBI, a federal agency known for training investigators on an expert's level. Normally, after hearing that you shot someone from behind, an expert investigator would naturally know that you were not facing the person that you shot. This is why Tony Carleton should have been on the scene to arrest Boykin for murder that night. If a non-uniform person told a law enforcement investigator that he shot someone in the back because the person was pointing a gun at him, that non-uniform person would not be allowed to leave the custody of that investigating official without posting bond for murder charges. This is what should have happened to Canyon Boykin the night he killed Ricky Ball if Tony Carleton was interested in executing Justice in his official capacity as the Chief law enforcement official of the city. Instead, Tony Carleton worked the crime scene over the phone and never came to the crime scene, a very uncustomary move from a police chief, even though he was reportedly in the city that night.
Our aim is for the national and state laws related to murder, conspiracy to murder and crime cover-ups to be properly executed against all persons involved in the death of Ricky Ball.
We, the People of Columbus, MS have united our combined strengths to ensure justice is served in honor of Ricky Ball's life. We fully understand the political climate of the day related to punishing officers properly when they have abused the use of deadly force. It is going to take a fiery will from the people and judicial officials to overcome the complacency in the justice system when it comes to punishing police officers who act unlawfully. We can see why prosecutors and legislators have been reluctant to provide an appropriate legal matrix to properly punish outlaw law enforcement persons. Legislators and prosecutors depend on law enforcement persons for revenue and strength. Nonetheless, the gun and badge give a person an extremely high level of power. What should also come with that high level of power is a high level of punishment and accountability when the power of the gun and badge is abused by any officer. Good police officers are always appreciated and are a necessary element of governments around the nation; however, criminally-minded persons using the gun and badge to commit murder are a national security threat that creates instability in any civilized government and society. #justiceforrickyball
