Ebony Dickens never imagined that venting her frustrations in a Facebook post would bring the full force of the law crashing down on her head.
The East Point single mom is now cooling her heels in the county lockup after she was arrested for making terroristic threats against law enforcement in a Facebook post.
Dickens is accused of plotting to kill at least 15 white police officers in retaliation for the death of unarmed black man Freddie Gray.
Gray is the 25-year-old Baltimore man who died one week after his spine was severed during a rough ride in the back of a police van.
From Channel 2 Action News:
Channel 2’s Liz Artz learned the FBI, Homeland Security, the District Attorney’s office and the New York Police Department assisted East Point police with Ebony Dickens’ arrest.
Dickens is accused of writing a Facebook post Monday using the name Tiffany Milan in which she called for “death to all white cops nationwide.”
The post went on 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.”
“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
In the post, Dickens says she condones black-on-white killings. She took down the post on Tuesday, just hours before she was arrested.
