Police in Clayton County, Georgia are investigating threats against officers made by a woman in videos posted on the internet.
According to police, the woman lives a mile and a half from the Clayton County Police Department.
The woman in the video, Latausha Nedd, who also goes by Eye Empress Sekhmet, calls for war on white people and advocates shooting police officers.
In an interview with WSBTV, Nedd said, “I say let’s have a take a gun day and start walking up on these untrained cops and stealing their weapons.”
When asked by a reporter for the television station if she really wanted people to kill police officers, Nedd said, “I never said that.”
The television station was at her home when the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service, and a joint terrorism task force arrested Nedd on Thursday.
“She was watching your news broadcast,” Clayton County Police Chief Michael Register told the reporter. “A lot of people talk on the Internet and YouTube, but most people don’t make threats against segments of the community.”
While she was being led away in handcuffs, Nedd had a few things to say.
“This is about a YouTube video? I’ve seen worse on YouTube,” Nedd said from the back of a police cruiser. “All I said was defend yourself against people who want to kill us. That’s all. I never said anything more than that.”
She also claimed to be harmless, but according to the police, her words were as dangerous as any weapon.
“It’s also the reaction she solicits, or anyone solicits from people who may be listening,” Register said.
Nedd was charged with making terroristic threats and transmitting those threats through social media.
