Detroit man facing felony charges after Facebook threat against police officers arrested

A Detroit man who was charged with felonies for reportedly made threats of violence against police on Facebook has been arrested at the Comfort Inn in Southfield.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has announced felony charges against Nheru Gowan Littleton Wednesday. He was arrested hours later by Detroit police and the US Marshals Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team.

Littleton, 40, has been charged with Making a Terroristic Threat and Using a Computer to Commit a Crime.

Police say Littleton posted a message on Facebook on July 8 that encouraged killing police officers. The threat on Facebook read ““F*** them racist a** white cops!!! Kill them ALL!!! Black Lives Matter!!! Black people should start killing all white cops just like they are killing us!!! Then and only then will this s*** stop!! Why you ask? Because white people will be dropping like flies!!!”

This message was reportedly posted shortly the day after shootings in Dallas where five officers were killed.
