Georgia man accused of urging people to kill police
Macon, Ga. — Police say a Georgia man has been charged after he urged people to kill white police officers.
An arrest warrant states that 19-year-old Derrick “De De” Hudson of Macon, Georgia, wrote “Just kill all white cracker cops” in his online response to a Facebook post by Macon station WGXA-TV last Wednesday. The warrant says Hudson was charged with criminal solicitation.
The Telegraph reports that the comments were linked to the TV station’s post showing a video of Alton Sterling’s 15-year-old son speaking out about his father’s death. Sterling is the 37-year-old black man killed by white Baton Rouge officers after a scuffle at a convenience store on July 5.
WGXA’s news director declined to comment Monday. Bibb County Jail records do not list an attorney for Hudson.
