CHARGES DROPPED For GA Woman Who Called For Black People To “RISE UP AND SHOOT EVERY WHITE COP”…UPDATE: GA COP SHOT In Face By Black Man During Traffic Stop

Ebony Dickens, the woman who called on all blacks to rise up and kill white cops has since apologized…saying it was meant to be “satire”…

But OOPS…maybe not everyone thinks it was so funny: 


A Georgia sheriff’s deputy was shot in the face after pulling over a car on a highway southwest of Atlanta Saturday night, police said.

Deputy Jamie White was wounded once above his left eye as he walked up to the blue Chevrolet sedan on I-85 southbound around 7:30 p.m., Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley told WTVM-TV.

One suspect in the shooting, Joe Lee Garrett, 24, surrendered to police across the Alabama border in Phenix City hours later, authorities told the TV station.

Deputies and state troopers had searched late Saturday for all three suspects they said were inside the vehicle as the wounded deputy received treatment in a hospital.

An Atlanta-area woman who called for black people to “rise up and shoot every white cop” apologized for her Facebook post Friday.


Prosecutors charged Ebony Dickens with terroristic threats and inciting a riot after they said she wrote, “I condone black on white killings. Hell they condone crimes against us,” and “death to all white cops nationwide” under her Facebook name Tiffany Milan last April.

Yet they dropped the rap in exchange for her offering of remorse while surrounded by law enforcement officials at a news conference Friday, WSB-TV reported.

“It was not meant that way. I would never advocate for anybody else to be harmed by anyone. I wouldn’t push that upon my worst enemy. It’s not the person that I am,” said Dickens, 34, a small business owner with a master’s degree in criminal justice. “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, who is African-American, said she meant the post as satire but understands why she was arrested after East Point police said she predicted that she “might kill at least fifteen tomorrow.” She wanted to write something preposterous in hopes of starting a conversation during protests and riots in Baltimore after the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, she said.

“I’m apologetic because I would’ve been devastated if something had happened to an officer at the time that this happened,” Dickens said. “That would’ve killed me because I didn’t think about that.” Via: NY Daily News
