EAST POINT, Ga. — The 33-year-old East Point woman who was locked up in city jail after she allegedly said on Facebook that she wanted to kill 15 white police officers has been given a $10,000 bond and banned from social media, Channel 2 Action News reported Wednesday afternoon.
Ebony Dickens, posting under the name of Tiffany Milan, called Monday for "death to all white cops nationwide."
The post read: "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."
The post came down Tuesday, just before she was arrested, Channel 2 said.
It is not clear how authorities initially learned of the post, which was also shared on the Facebook page of Channel 2 Action News, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's news partner. Channel 2 took the post down immediately and reported it to Atlanta police and the FBI.
The FBI, Homeland Security, the District Attorney's office and the New York Police Department assisted East Point police in the arrest, according to Channel 2.
Police searched Dickens' condominium and found a firearm. She was charged with disseminating information related to terrorist acts.
"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 Channel 2 Action News.
The posting and arrest come as Baltimore police and officials deal with riots that broke out in the city after an African American man died in police custody.
