Meet Ebony Dickens.
Dickens, 33, posed for the mugshot above after she vented about killing police officers on her Facebook page.
Dickens deleted the rant from her page, but the damage had already been done
The post, which called for “death to all white cops nationwide,” was also shared on a local news station’s page where it was reported to local police and the FBI.
In the midst of the Baltimore riots and on the heels of several police shootings, Dickens post was taken seriously and investigators swiftly took action to determine her identity.
According to WSBTV:
An East Point woman accused of making serious threats against police officers on her Facebook page is in jail.
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.”
In the post, Dickens also says she condones black-on-white killings. She deleted the post on Tuesday, just hours before she was arrested.
The post was also shared on the WSB-TV Facebook page Tuesday. We took it down immediately and reported it to Atlanta Police and our FBI contacts.
It took authorities less than 24 hours to locate Dickens. They searched her condo and took her into custody.
While executing the search warrant police seized computers, a cell phone and a firearm.
“I don’t think she anticipated that we would respond as quickly as we did,” Chandler said.
Dickens has been charged with disseminating information related to terrorist acts.
East Point police say their investigation is ongoing and there could be more charges. The FBI is conducting its own investigation.
Dickens was transported to Atlanta’s Fulton County Jail where she awaits a bond hearing.
