A 19-year-old Macon man was arrested after he allegedly posted comments on a TV station’s Facebook page telling the public to “kill all white cops.”
Derrick “De De” Hudson, of a Roosevelt Avenue address, is accused of typing “Just kill all white cracker cops LLH” (laughing like hell) on a post by WGXA-TV about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to an arrest warrant. He is charged with soliciting people to commit murder.
Others on Facebook rebuked the comments, which were linked to a TV station post showing a video of Alton Sterling’s 15-year-old son speaking out about his father’s death.
Police shot Sterling July 5 in Louisiana in an incident captured on video and widely circulated on the internet.
A Bibb County sheriff’s sergeant took a screen shot of Hudson’s alleged threats, according to an incident report.
Hudson was booked in the Bibb County jail about five hours after the comments were posted.
