Ebony Dickens threatened white police nationwide with a call to action to ‘kill’ them. She is in a world of trouble now, but she is retracting her statement; claiming ‘that is not me or something I would do’. Question is, so why did she do it?
A woman accused of threatening police in a Facebook post is now apologizing.
Ebony Dickens is accused of writing a Facebook post 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.”

Dickens is a 34-year-old mother of a teenager, a small business owner and has a master’s degree in legal services.
She faces charges of terroristic threats and inciting a riot.
Dickens says the post was taken out of context.
“It was not meant that way. I would never advocate for anyone to be harmed by anyone. That is not the person that I am,” she said. “My apology is genuine and sincere because I know for a fact that I do not want anyone’s lives taken, anyone being harmed by something that I put on Facebook.”
Dickens said the post was not meant to be taken seriously and was only to start a conversation among friends.
