DETROIT (WNEM) -

Criminal charges have been slapped against a Michigan man accused of making a terrorist threat towards the lives of police officers.

Nheru Littleton, 40, of Detroit, allegedly posted the threats on social media.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, along with Detroit Police Chief James Craig claim one of the posts from July included the following: “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 this s    stop!! Why you ask? Because white people will be dropping like flies!!!”

“Threatening the life of a police officer is a threat against our entire community.  We take these threats very seriously,” said Chief 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.”

That post, and others allegedly made by Littleton, caused the Dearborn Police Department to issue a Law Enforcement Information Network to agencies in the area indicating that a significant threat had been made to the lives of officers in the area.

The threats allegedly posted by Littleton are listed below:

7/8/16: “To those sniper’s in Texas, I commend your bravery and actions!!! #blacklivesmatter.”

7/8/16: “All lives can’t matter until Black Lives matter!!!!  Kill all white cops!!!”

Schuette’s office said Littleton described himself as a “Former Killing Machine at United States Marine Corps” on social media, and has a valid Concealed Pistol License and owns a Smith and Wesson .45 caliber firearm.

Littleton is charged with making a terroristic threat, a 20-year felony and using a computer to commit a crime, also a 20-year felony.
