Ebony Dickens was the face of an angry cop-hating public when she wrote on Facebook "All Black ppl should rise up and shoot at every white cop in the nation starting NOW."
Not good. Not good at all.
Ms. Dickens, an IT consultant, now claims her online diatribe (there was more) was just an over-the-top rant to show how angry and ridiculous public dialogue had become. But the FBI Counter Terrorism Task Force people don't always notice nuance or sarcasm. Dickens was arrested last year on charges of making terroristic threats.
On Friday, she stood in front of TV cameras to face some police officers.
