AG charges Detroit man with threatening cops on Facebook

TRENTON (AP) — A Detroit man has been charged with making threats on Facebook against police officers.

State Attorney General Bill Schuette and Detroit’s police chief announced charges recently against Nheru Littleton. They say he used social media in July to encourage the killing of white officers after the fatal shooting of five officers in Dallas.

Detroit Chief James Craig says a threat against an officer is a “threat against our entire community.”

Littleton, 40, is charged with using a computer to commit a crime and making a threat of terrorism.

In August, Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy had declined to file charges, citing evidence problems and other issues.
