A Georgia woman whose April, 2015 Facebook post called for "death to all white cops nationwide," issued a public apology on Friday, ending a year-long saga in which she had faced criminal charges over the perceived threat.

Ebony Dickens, who used the pseudonym Tiffany Milan on social media, posted the inflammatory statement during the height of controversies surrounding a number of police involved shootings.

The statement was sufficiently threatening, according to local prosecutors, that they sought charges against her; however, an agreement was reached whereby charges would be dropped if Dickens issued a public apology.

She did so on Friday, offering an apology and stating, "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 further stated, "I’m apologetic because I would’ve been devastated if something had happened to an officer at the time that this happened. That would’ve killed me because I didn’t think about that.” The statement was recorded by multiple television stations and media outlets. 

Here is Dickens's original April, 2015 statement:

All Black ppl should rise up and shoot at every white cop in the nation starting NOW. I condone black on white killings. Hell they condone crimes against us. I’ve thought about shooting every white cop I see in the head until I’m either caught by the police or killed by them. Ha!!!! I think I can pull it off. Might kill at least fifteen tomorrow. I’m plotting now. They reading this sh** too right now. Freedom of speech tho. So when you can absolutely show me the 1st amendment where it explicitly says you can’t say “kill all cops,” then I’ll delete my status. Other than that…NOPE! Death to all white cops nationwide.
