The original title of this blog was “Love Regardless Dedicated to Ricky Ka’mel Wilson” but after reading a comment left by Ricky’s mother I think the title should be justice for Ricky Ka’mel Wilson. Ricky’s mother painted a picture and told a story of something that happens to often to African American males where the deaths are not properly investigated , what really happened to Ricky?
Comment from Ricky’s Mother
“I CAN SAY WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT THIS WORLD WILL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER A KIND, LOVING, SHARING, EVEN SO MUCH LOVE AND SUPPORT OF HIMSELF, THAT HE LOST HIS SELF LOVING AND GIVING SO MUCH OF HIMSELF!. RICKY WAS LOVE, AND LOVED EVERYONE.. EVEN (sorry to say, but keeping it real) TO THE POINT OF BEING USED BY SOME! HOW MANY TIMES DID I SEE HIM GIVE OF HIMSELF, AND AT TIMES WHEN HE NEEDED SOMEONE, HE USUALLY WAS ON HIS OWN. BUT HE HAD A LOVING, AND SUPPORTING MOM. OF COURSE, MOM TRIED TO TELL HIM, SON, SLOW DOWN WITH ALWAYS RUNNING WEEK TO WEEK, WHEN YOUR SO TIRED, TAKE CARE OF RICKY. OF COURSE RICKY WAS NOT STREET SMART, HE WAS RAISED IN THE CHURCH, YET COULDN’T WRAP IT AROUND HIS MIND THAT THERE ARE SOME NOT NICE PEOPLE OUT THERE, AND ALTHOUGH I KNOW HE HAD MANY FRIENDS WHO LOVED HIM, THE COIN WAS NOT LIKE THAT ON ALL SIDES. RICKY WAS IN GOOD SPIRITS WHEN HE LEFT HOME ON THAT TUESDAY, AND THE DAYS BEFORE THAT.. HE LEFT ME A NOTE, MOM.. I WILL BE HOME ON WEDNESDAY,UNLESS IT GETS TO LATE, THURSDAY FOR SURE. THERE WAS NO INVESTIGATION, I MEAN NOTHING WAS DONE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED TO MY SON!!!!! THEY ONLY WENT BY ROAD DET.. SENT NO ONE TO ROOM, CALL NO ONE TO QUESTION ANYONE, NEVER CALLED ME WITH TO ASK QUESTIONS, NOTHING!!!!!! WHAT HAPPENED WHEN HE LEFT ROOM TO GO MEIJERS?? DID SOMEONE PERHAPS FOLLOW HIM WHEN THEY SAW MONEY ON HIM AS HE PAID FOR ALLERGY MEDS WHEN HE LEFT STORE?? I’LL NEVER KNOW, BECAUSE, THE DETECTIVES DECIDED DECIDED NOT TO INVESTAGATE!!! WHY???? A DEAD DOG WOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN MORE INQUIRIES AS TO WHAT HAPPENED!! FOR THE RECORD, WHILE EVERY ONE IS TALKING AS THEY HAVE MOVED ON (as they should, my baby is dead now,), SAYING SUISIDE… ITS JUST NOT THE FACT!!!!!! OMG, AND IT IS TEARING ME APART. CORONER SAYS RICKY DIED FROM ASPHYXIA, DROWNING AND TOX. REPORT CONFIRMS THIS!! NOT FROM PILL,OR NOT FROM ALCOHOL!!!! AS SOME ARE RUNNING AROUND SAYING. MY SON WOULD NOT HAVE SAT IN A TUB (LOVES, AND TAKES SHOWERS) AND DROWNED HIMSELF, CHOKING, AND GASPING TO TRY TO CLEAR HIS LUNG TO BREATH!! NO WAY. IF HE HAD WANTED TO GO HE COULD HAVE EASILY JUST LAID IN BED, AND WENT TO SLEEP, NOT GO OUT IN SUCH A HORRIBLE WAY AS TO DROWN HIMSELF!!! AGAIN, THE DETECTIVE DIDN’T TAKE ONE STEP TO INVESTIGATE, EVEN KNOWING SAYING THEM SELF IT WAS SUSPICIOUS!!! I GOT NONE OF HIS BELONGINGS BACK…SOMEHOW DISAPPEARED IN THIN AIR!!! NOTHING, NOT EVEN THE CLOTHING HE WAS WEARING!!!! I CAN TELL YOU THIS…. I KNOW MY SON, AND HE NEVER WOULD HAVE LEFT MOM WITHOUT A NOTE, NEVER!!! HIS NEWER CAR WAS CUT AND SCRATCHED ALL AROUND, AND NOT ONLY CIG HOLE ON BACK SEAT, WHICH SOME GREAT FRIEND HAD DONE A WHILE AGO, BUT THE FRONT PASSENGERS SEAT LOOKED LIKE SOMEONE HAD TRIED TO SET IT ON FIRE!!!!! ALL THIS SUSPISION, ALL THESE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS, LIKE WHO TOOK HIS MONEY AND BELONGINGS, (RICKY WAS IN VERY GOOD SPIRITS, AND STARTED ON A REVISED RESUME, HAPPY, PLAYING HIS MUSIC, COOKING, GOING OUT WITH FRIENDS…. COME ON NOW!!!! SOMETHING WENT HORRIBLE WRONG, AND NO ONE CARE ENOUGHT TO INVESTAGATE NOT ONE THING!!!! OR ONE PERSON!!! MY BABY IS DEAD, OMG..OMG, AND IT IS UNBEARABLE FOR ME, ESPECIALLY EVEN HARDER HOW HE WAS TREATED!!!MY GOD IN HEAVEN,, I CAN BARLY BREATH, AND IT GETS HARDER AS EACH DAY GOES BY, AND REALITY SETS IN THAT MY SON WILL NEVER BE COMING HOME AGAIN!!! THERE IS SOMETHING SO WRONG WITH THIS, AND I’M NOT JUST SAYING THIS AS A GRIEVING MOTHER, THIS IS A FACT!!! OH MY GOD, THIS JUST CANT BE!!!! MY BABY JUST CANT BE DEAD!!! NO WAY. GOD KNOWS THE TRUTH, AND MAYBE SOMEONE ELSE DOES TOO.. MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL, AS GOOD AND KIND AS RICKY WAS TO EVERYONE!!!` p s… anyoone can feel free to inbox me with any thoughts, information, who was he last with ect. ty”
I urge you all to contact the local police department and demand a thorough investigation it is important that if something happened to Ricky that his family knows so that they can have closer. If you have any information please come forward.
I Love You your heart was so pure and so good and its so sad that others wont get to experience that now. R.I.P
You changed my life in 30 sec with something so simple as getting up and giving me your seat that simple act of kindness that I knew was so pure changed me in a way that you will never know . I can’t believe that you are gone and because of something that truly could have been avoided.
The bible says that he without sin should cast the first stone but in this society we have been casting stones for so long our hands are turning gray but today I am wiping mines clean and starting over. I know that I cannot help this judgement inside of me but I can consciously make the decision to love regardless.
It does not have to be this way, we can prevent these senseless loss of lives we don’t have to be this way we can love regardless.
Regardless of sexual orientation , regardless of the clothes a persons wearing, regardless of how someone does their hair, regardless of what scene someone is in, regardless if you have a gay son or daughter, regardless if your son or daughter didn’t choose the right career path…………..keep going.
We can love without bounds and we can change the world one person at a time that starts by loving regardless
this is what Ricky taught me because he loved you no matter who you are or where you came from.
