DETROIT – A Detroit man is due in court for a preliminary hearing for allegedly posting threats against police on social media.

Nheru Gowan Littleton, 40, is charged with making terroristic threats and using a computer to commit a crime. Both are 20-year felonies.

“Threatening the life of a police officer is a threat against our entire community. We take these threats very seriously,” said Detroit police Chief James Craig. “I’ve made a commitment to the men and women of the Detroit Police Department; I will not ignore those who threaten their safety. I refuse to let threats against officers go without a response.”

Littleton allegedly posted numerous direct threats to law enforcement officers on social media. The post was reported to the Dearborn Police Department.

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 thuis s- stop!!! Why you ask? Because white people will be dropping like flies!!!”

Dearborn police issued a Law Enforcement Information Network message to all area law enforcement agencies about the threat.

Police said Littleton has a valid concealed pistol license and owns a Smith and Wesson .45 caliber firearm, according to the attorney general’s office.
