An article in the newspaper last week revealed that one of our local 
law enforcement officers has been arrested and charged with fraud in 
not only lying to the GBI but actually falsifying documents in regard 
to the qualifications of the narcotics agent that, in my opinion, 
murdered Pastor Ayers last year in Toccoa.

DA Rickman was the leading defender of the rogue cop, declaring that 
his actions were appropriate.

He now seems to allude to this latest arrest as being an example of 
how the idea of "cops protecting cops" does not apply in his 
jurisdiction. After our "grand jury debacle", I feel led to address 
my neighbors in the most basic way.

Do you not understand that DA Rickman is only doing what he is 
absolutely forced to do?

Do you really believe that any of these actions would have occurred 
had Mrs. Ayers not hired out-of-town attorneys to handle her case?

They in turn initiated their own investigation. They certainly knew 
not to rely on locals.

Rickman is no longer able to ignore abuse of the law. He is under a 
microscope, as is anyone involved in the Ayers Case.

You will never see him more available to offer assistance.

I would advise you, my friend, that when you see him accepting 
credit, as he is prone to do, just remember that he no longer has a 
choice. This is just my opinion. Thanks for listening.
