The ACLU now claims threats of terrorism is covered by free speech. Nheru Littleton, an employee at the Ford Rouge Plant in Detroit Michigan, decided to show his support for #blacklivesmatter by posting death threats against white people and police. The post came after the shooting death of Alton Sterlin, an ARMED Black man:
“F them racist a** 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!!!” – Nheru Littleon
Initially, prosecutor Kym Worthy refused to press charges against Littleton and several others who made similar terroristic threats online, as she believes it’s ok for African-Americans to threaten acts of terrorism. Later Attorney General Bill Schuette announced he would press charges, claiming that Littleton’s post endangered the lives of police.
“These charges are solid and substantive. I stand with the cops. These threats are serious. They provoke violence. We filed these charges; they’re solid, and this is a fight worth fighting for.” – Bill Schuette
Littleton, 40, is charged with making a terroristic threat and using a computer to commit a crime, both are 20-year felonies. That doesn’t stop the ACLU from claiming that it’s a Constitutional right for African-American’s to threaten to kill white police officers, because they apparently don’t mean it. The ALCU should explain that to the families of the deceased Dallas Police officers who died last year in the shooting:
“If there’s one thing that distinguishes a free society from a police state, it’s the ability to sometimes offensively condemn the police in the harshest manner without risking arrest and prosecution. We have to think about what was going on last summer in this country … we were collectively traumatized by act after act after act of police brutality. They were often captured on camera, broadcast on television. I will never be able to truly understand what it must feel like for a young black man to see that happening in this country; to hear about death after death. That’s the real-life context for the rage, the frustration, the anger that someone like Mr. Littleton has, He didn’t lash out with acts; he lashed out with speech.” – ACLU attorney Daniel Korobkin
Littleton is due in court on Wednesday. According to the Detroit News, a Detroit judge is considering a motion to throw the case out.
