Georgia mother arrested for making Facebook threat against 'white cops'

EAST POINT, GA (KTRK) -- Police have arrested a woman near Atlanta over a threatening Facebook post calling for "death to all white cops nationwide."

Ebony Dickens, 33, is accused of writing a Facebook post Monday using the name Tiffany Milan, ABC affiliate WSB-TV reports. The post called for "death to all white cops nationwide" and 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," East Point police Lt. Cliff Chandler told WSB-TV.

Police say the 33-year-old mother deleted her Facebook post just hours before her arrest. She now faces a charge of disseminating information related to terrorist acts.

The FBI and Homeland Security are also investigating the threat and say additional charges are possible.
