White woman who called police on black man charged with false reporting

The White woman who called the police on a black man who was watching birds at a park in New York, has been charged for filing a false police report to the Police.

On May 25, in New York’s Central Park, Amy Cooper became upset when a black man named Christian Cooper asked her to put her dog on a leash in line with the park’s rules to protect the birds.

In reaction, Amy threatened him that she would call the cops and tell them that there’s an “African American man threatening my life”. True to her threats, she called the police, and even cried during the call, in addition to almost strangling her dog.

Subsequently, she was fired from her job (read here) and her dog was taken from her temporarily.

On Monday, July 6, the Manhattan district attorney said Amy Cooper faces criminal charges for falsely accusing a black man.

    “Today our office initiated a prosecution of Amy Cooper for falsely reporting an incident in the third degree. We are strongly committed to holding perpetrators of this conduct accountable,” Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the district attorney, said.

Ms. Cooper, who was issued a desk appearance ticket on Monday, is scheduled to be arraigned on Oct. 14. If convicted, she could receive a conditional discharge or be sentenced to community service or counselling rather than jail time.
