CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A suburban Atlanta woman was arrested by two different agencies within the U.S. Department of Justice for allegedly producing a highly-inflammatory video calling for the killing of white people and police officers.
Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Marshals Service closed in an arrested Latausha Nedd, who allegedly made the Internet threats, and who lives a mile-and-a-half from a Clayton County police station, WSB reports.
Nedd is the second Atlanta-area black woman in the last six months to be arrested by federal agents for reportedly threatening police officers. Ebony Dickens of East Point, Ga., another south Atlanta suburb, was arrested by the FBI and Homeland Security – with assistance from the District Attorney’s office and the New York Police Department – for allegedly writing a Facebook post under the alias Tiffany Milan in which she called for “death to all white cops nationwide.”
Nedd, who goes by the name Eye Empress Sekhmet, allegedly calls for a war on not only white people but also shooting police officers in the YouTube video.
“I say let’s have a take a gun day, and start walking up on these untrained and stealing their weapons,” Nedd said.
As she was arrested, Channel 2 asked Nedd: “You really want people to kill cops?”
“I never said that,” Nedd retorted.
The FBI and Marshals were part of a joint terrorism task force that moved in to arrest Nedd Thursday afternoon.
Nedd had a lot to say as she was put into handcuffs.
“This is about a YouTube video? I’ve seen worse on YouTube,” Nedd said from the back of a police cruiser, according to the station. “All I said was defend yourself against people who want to kill us. That’s all. I never said anything more than that.”
Nedd says she is not a threat to harm anyone. But local and federal agents said her words were just as dangerous as a weapon.
A portion of what Nedd had to say can be found on YouTube and SendVid.
