19-year-old Derrick “De De” Hudson
MACON, Ga. (AP) — 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 (http://bit.ly/29Xd868) 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.
