Ed Payne et al., CNN, April 30, 2015
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.”
Police in East Point–a city of about 34,000 people just south of Atlanta–said in a statement that, in addition to detailing how many police might die and threatening white officers specifically, the posts “indicated that the acts were being plotted and were in motion.”
They took her into custody while executing that warrant. “A firearm along with three computers was located during the search,” East Point police said.
Dickens, 33, appeared in court Wednesday on a charge of disseminating information related to terrorist acts. A judge set a $10,000 bond for her and banned her from social media.
