As rioters rampaged across Baltimore Monday evening, a Georgia woman decided it was the perfect time to go on Facebook and announce that “All Black ppl should rise up and shoot at every white cop in the nation starting NOW,” police allege.
After being alerted to the online threat--which appeared on the page of “Tiffany Milan”--investigators tracked the post back to Ebony Dickens, a 33-year-old mother from East Point, an Atlanta suburb.
Dickens, pictured at right, was arrested yesterday for making terroristic threats. During a search of her apartment, police seized computers and a handgun, cops reported.
“I condone black on white killing,”
“I’ve 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 fifteen tomorrow. I’m plotting now.”
Apparently aware that the post would draw law enforcement scrutiny, Dickens allegedly wrote,
“They reading this shit too right now. Freedom of speech tho.”
She added that the post would be deleted, but only after
“you can absolutely show me in the 1st amendment where it explicitly says you can’t say ‘kill all cops’...Other than that... NOPE!”
The post concluded, “Death to all white cops nationwide.”
A judge today set Dickens's bond at $10,000 and ordered her to cease using her social media accounts.
