“When Amy Cooper, a white woman, called 911 from an isolated patch in Central Park where she was standing with her unleashed dog on Memorial Day, she said an “African-American man” was threatening her, emphasizing his race to the operator.”The New York Times
According to a report from the New York Times:
“The Manhattan district attorney’s decision to charge a white woman with filing a false police report against a Black man in Central Park does not have the support of one key person: the victim himself.
The man, Christian Cooper, has not cooperated with the prosecution’s investigation. The woman, Amy Cooper, lost her job and was publicly shamed after a video Mr. Cooper made on May 25 was posted online; it showed her calling 911 to claim an “African-American man” was threatening her. Those consequences alone, Mr. Cooper said at the time, were in his view perhaps too much punishment.”
In other words, since Amy Cooper lost her job and was publicly shamed Christian Cooper believed she had suffered enough for filing a false police report that could’ve cost his life or his freedom.
This is outrageous. These “Karens” will never learn until they truly have to pay for these kinds of racist actions. In fact, the reason why they harass black people so much is because they usually NEVER suffer the consequences for their actions. It’s not until recently where “Karens” have been exposed left and right on video all over America. Nobody believed us before, we were accused of just playing the “race card”. Even with that, most people like Amy Cooper just lose their jobs, but never suffer any more than that.
At the end of the day, what’s new…
One way or another for the last 400 years or so racist white people in America have found a loop hole around the protocols of justice, and were permitted to continue on their reign of terror without chastisement.
Christian Cooper had an opportunity, unlike others, to manifest some sense of Justice and he dropped the ball. What a shame.
