Georgia woman allegedly threatens white cops on Facebook, lands in jail
A fake name on a Facebook post can still get you in real trouble, especially when you’re threatening to shoot every white cop you see.
Ebony Dickens of East Point, Georgia, posted her Facebook rant under the name Tiffany Milan, police said.
“All Black ppl should rise up and shoot at every white cop in the nation starting NOW,” said the post made on Monday. “I condone black on white killings. Hell they condone crimes against us.”
The post was removed a day later, just before Dickens was arrested, CNN affiliate WSB reported.
“I thought about shooting every white cop I see in the head until I’m either caught by the police or killed by them. Ha!!!! I think I can pull it off. Might kill at least 15 tomorrow, I’m plotting now.”
Needless to day, it got law enforcement’s attention. Not only the East Point police, but the FBI and Homeland Security, too.
“That’s 15 people that she’s talking about killing within a day or so, so whether she is serious or not that’s something that we have to take seriously,” East Point police Lt. Cliff Chandler told WSB.
Dickens, 33, is in the Fulton County Jail after being charged with disseminating information related to terrorist acts.
She’s being held on $10,000 bond and has been banned from social media.
Perhaps Dickens should have known better.
Her public defender, Tracey Moran, said Dickens has a master’s in “legal studies,” CNN affiliate WXIA reported.
