VIDEO: Georgia Woman Apologizes for 2015 Facebook Post Threatening Officers

An Atlanta-area woman accused of threatening police in a Facebook post in 2015  has now apologized, and the district attorney is planning to drop charges against her.

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.

She held a news conference with law enforcement officials Friday to apologize, WSB TV reports. 

Dickens says the post was taken out of context. 

Based on acceptance by law enforcement of the apology, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard is planning to ask for the case to be dismissed.

Oh hell no. Apologize once a day for 364 from jail. Out of context, nice try but I would love to hear the intended context.

OK then @ 5/10/2016 4:18 PM

Taken out of context? Would like to hear her explain what the proper context was.

Out of context??? No way that could be taken another way. Dropping the charges is a terrible idea. Why let her get away with this crime?

It's not a good idea to drop charges. Let her do community service, talk to students, do things for police, in her town. Then , if everything is done, have her stand in front of a group of police and make her apology.

All she is sorry for is that she got caught and prosecuted. Criminal intent can be shown based on her statements and her using a false name and her statements are clear and not even able to "taken out of context". What "context" other then this could there ever be to use those words. If she is so very educated ("Masters") then she certainly knows what she is writing and saying. If the Prosecutor drops the charges they are either anti-police or so political that they are afraid to do the right thing, either way the prosecutor should resign if they drop these charges. IF they do, how about the Feds stepping in to charge her under terrorism threats? But we know that wont happen under this DOJ she is Black and not a cop so they could care less. If a cop had made those same statements off duty about killing Blacks etc etc you can bet they would be fired, prosecuted by the State and the Feds. tell me I'm wrong! She has a "Masters" Degree, in WHAT (what the hell is "legal services"??)

KevcopAz, you're right.

I certainly agree with all of the above. Where will all this insanity end. "Based on acceptance by law enforcement of the apology," they will drop the charges. I just wonder who in the LEO community thought it is a good idea to drop charges. Did all cops in the nation make this decision????
