A woman’s decision to post her feelings of Black Power and hatred of White people and cops has led to her arrest. Latausha Nedd, aka, Eye Empress Sekhmet, posted a series of YouTube videos that caused the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service and a joint terrorism task force to arrest the Clayton County, Georgia, woman. Nedd was actually in her home watching a news broadcast about her YouTube video when the police showed up to arrest her.

As she was being led out of her home to a police car she stated, “This is about a YouTube video? I’ve seen worse on YouTube. “All I said was defend yourself against people who want to kill us. That’s all. I never said anything more than that.”

Clayton County Police Chief Michael Register disagreed with the assertion that Nedd’s statements weren’t as dangerous as a weapon. “A lot of people talk on the Internet and on YouTube, but most people don’t make threats against segments of the community. … It’s also the reaction she solicits or anyone solicits from people who may be listening,” he said.

Nedd is now facing charges of making terroristic threats and transmitting those threats through social media. The  video, which contains graphic language, can be viewed on the next page.
