Woman indicted for Facebook post threatening white cops

An East Point woman was indicted Friday on charges of terroristic threats for alleged Facebook posts threatening to kill white police officers.

Ebony Dickens, 34, was arrested April 28 after allegedly posting on Facebook that she wanted to kill white police officers out of frustration with recent controversial police shootings in the United States. The posts also allegedly suggested that other people should “rise up” and join her, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release Friday.

Dickens was arrested after authorities executed a search warrant for her home and electronic belongings and reportedly found a firearm. She is charged with terroristic threats and inciting to riot, and is out on a $10,000 bond.

The case will be assigned to a Fulton County Superior Court judge and scheduled for trial.
