A woman in East Point, Ga has been arrested after making racist threats toward police officers on Facebook using a false name.
In her Facebook post, Ebony Dickens, under the name Tiffany Milan, called for “death to all white cops nationwide.”
The post continued to say, “I thought about shooting every white cop I see in the head until I’m either caught by the police or killed by them… Might kill at least 15 tomorrow, I’m plotting now.”
Authorities rightfully took the post very seriously.
“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,” said East Point police Lt. Cliff Chandler.
According to WSB-TV, Dickens deleted the post Tuesday just hours before she was arrested. In less than 24 hours, officers searched Dickens’ condo and took her into custody. Officers seized computers, a cell phone and a firearm while conducting the search of the home.
Dickens is currently being charged with disseminating information related to terrorist acts. The East Point police will continue to investigate the matter, so more charges may be brought against her. The FBI is conducting their own investigation as well.
On Wednesday, Dickens will be transported to the Fulton County jail.
