Why would you assume its because he is black?! Most of the people I know that are standing up for him including some parents from the school are WHITE!

Very funny mocking me. He has been charged with one count of child molestation. Watch your words and mince them carefully. If he didn't do anything then he wouldnt be charged for no reason.

Their is a detective on the case and My son knows him quite well and it's a shock especially to me. I receive my information from VERY credible sources not just a Bubba down the street.

I have known Ricky for YEARS. The way ALL the kids love him should be proof enough that he is innocent. I know my children as well as my friend's children love him to death. They are old enough to know the difference and if they had noticed anything out of the ordinary with him, they wouldn't respect him as much as they do. They are upset and in disbelief of these allegations. My family will support him and be behind him 100%. I agree with canecoach and supporter, he will have to tell me to my face he is guilty before I will believe it.

Our kids go to Wiregrass and we LOVE Mr. Rickey and support him completely. We would trust Mr. Rickey with either of our children. I can't imagine anyone accusing him of something like this if they know him. He is so GOOD with those children and is 100% dedicated to them. I wish that there was something that we could do. Not only have these selfish people slandered his name, but he is not able to work to support his family. This is truly heartbreaking. " good deed goes unpunished..." very very sad.

Did your source tell you that the director of the school has found ABSOLUTELY NOTHING on the video tapes and supports him 100%. I have sources also and it ain't Bubba! Hard to pass a polygraph when your guilty! I have family not just a friend thats a detective so don't think I say anything thats not credible.

Well if the detectives on the case r letting out crediable information....maybe they need to be behind bars too. I hate that so many ppl r on here talking trash about this young man when NOBODY knows what is really going on including me. So all i can say is instead of bashing ppl on here get on ur knees and pray for not only the family that is accusing but for the accused and his family.

I promise you there are a myriad of people in this community who support Coach Rick! He has dedicated his life to the youth of this community. Every child he has coached adores him and every parent appreciates him for the confidence he builds in their children.

Hey let's all find something else to do and let the judge and jury decide and if he isn't in jail then still find something else to do! This is just as messed up as the rest of this place. I hope someone reports this or deletes it.

This is OUR CHILDREN at stake and a POSSIBLE CHILD MOLESTER. The public has a right to know. I pray he's innocent. THIS IS TOPIX, a free discussion forum. If this isn't your cup of tea, YOU need to find somewhere else to surf. I choose reality.

What did the paper say he did?

Oh and posting it on Topix is doing nothing for your children. Anyone involved are in the know. This is just an angry lynch mob. Sure hope its not true but this isn't solving a thing blaming someone without any information.

An old tale well illustrates the consequences of spreading hurtful gossip. A man went about town slandering the town's wise man. Later, the malicious gossiper realized he was wrong and went to the wise man to ask for forgiveness, offering to do whatever was necessary to make amends. The wise man had one request: The gossiper was told to go and take a feather pillow and cut it open, scattering the feathers to the wind. Though puzzled by the request, the gossiper did as he was instructed and then returned to the wise man. "Am I forgiven?" he asked. "First, go and gather all the feathers," the wise man responded. "But how can I? The wind has already scattered them." "It is as difficult to repair the damage done by your words as it is to recover the feathers.?

Do you get the lesson? Once spoken, words cannot be retrieved, and it may be impossible to undo the hurt they cause. Before spreading a bit of gossip, we are wise to remember that we are, in effect, about to scatter feathers in the wind.

Don't ruin anyone's life with gossip.

Well like I said its not a lynch mob but a concerned person and I'll be damned if a suspected child molester isnt know. About. If he's innocent and cleared and it's proven, great. As for the videos, the incidents could have taken place OUTSIDE the daycare. Just keep that in mind. Pedos come from all walks of life, rich and poor, black or white.

@Simple GALL and "Concerned" parent. Regardless of your denial you are acting as a self appointed judge and jury. That act is the act of a lynch mob. Instead of waiting on Due Process, you have slandered and wronged someone with your actions, someone who may be innocent. You have lowered yourself to the level of the very accusations you are making.

I think that you all need to stop all the fussing because don't any of us know the truth and who knows we may not never find out the truth of this which i pray that well all do and it's not true so what we all need to be doing is getting down on our knees and praying asking god to not let this be true and praying for all the one's that have something to do with it and the families and last but not lease the kids that attend the daycare.

I hope it isnt true because i went to school with Rick and think the world of him. Everyone should just wait and let the courts do their job....innocent until proven guilty and IF truely guilty then punishment must be given. Blessed child why does race have to come up everytime? Does it really matter if this child was black or white? Either way this child has been put in a terrible situation. Whether its true or she is being told what to say, either way i feel for her and Rick's family.

I'm sorry I just am a mother first and defenses kick in especially my child going to the same daycare. I have judged harshly and so sorry. I hope he's not guilty.
