The only thing its remaining leaders — Rebecca Ficklin and her husband, Jeremy — can do is attack the messenger. Rather than pony up documentation or answer any questions at all on-the-record, they’ve resorted to nasty personal attacks, threats and intimidation.
That’s just the sort of thing normal people do when running a non-profit organization that’s supposed to be focused on compassion.
They seem to have no concept that creating anonymous screennames in an attempt to malign the character of others, to harm their businesses and their personal lives is a slippery slope. Spoiler alert: we have more money, better attorneys and have a history of doing the right thing by our sources. I.E., filing suit when necessary.
Unlike the Kentucky Humane Society and other organizations (even Metro Animal Services) that have faced scrutiny over alleged mismanagement or fiscal irresponsibility, the remaining shell of an organization at NKL has turned into an unprofessional hate machine. Every other organization that’s faced questions has handled them with grace and professionalism. This bunch? It’s like dealing with a pack of trailer park dogs that have no leader, no sense of direction and no concept of dealing with people on any level.
It’s safe to say the days of No Kill Louisville having respect are over. Behavior like this, allegations aside, illustrates the organization’s true colors. No one wants to deal with a charity that is flat out nasty to others.
So, Ficklins: consider this formal notice. Full Signal Media Group will press charges/pursue legal action if you continue to threaten, intimidate, harass and frighten sources, former volunteers or former board members. That is not a road you want to go down. Unlike other media outlets, we protect sources.
Suggesting that what your former board members have provided is “lies”? Here’s the deal… keep spinning. Because all the emails, screenshots, government documents, 990s, bank records, receipts, minutes, details about animal negligence, Amazon wish lists, threats to volunteers and officers, the loss of Blue Buffalo and Rescue Bank partnerships, fraudulently gaming another charity by rigging their vote system, the bogus financial statements that you published, the license plate mess and photographs aren’t “lies” or “untrue” – they’re a reality you could have escaped had you started answering questions honestly instead of attacking people. Now you’ve also created a reality wherein you and your direct volunteers are threatening, demeaning, attacking and intimidating people who dare question a popular charity organization.
Every bit of that is on you.
