The charge against a white woman accused of falsely reporting that a Black man had threatened her during a wild caught-on-camera confrontation in Central Park last May was dismissed Tuesday after the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office agreed to put her through a restorative justice program meant to address racial biases, officials said. Erica Byfield reports.

This is what I expected white doesn't have to do right . I guess the some of the people at the DC Capitol will get the same treatment. Business as usual.

The problem is only one: People see media like the formal justice center. It's only one system of justice, trust on it, that's democracy, is the law. Respect Police Officers, Prosecutors and all the people who are professionals on their jobs. Learn to understand when you're wrong, or have a false perception of reality. That's it.

If we’re Amy Cooper, I’d tell her attorney to just shut the hell up for her sake. It tells us her so-called apology was insincere. She’s learned nothing if she still wants to make excuses and be the victim. If she has a job, I’d fire her again just because of that.

In fuckin real...and guess what people ? Nothing happened to her for this..only some counseling ..I didn’t know we now had counseling to treat white people that hate and fear black people..if this was 80 years ago this man would have been hung..she literally became frantic and acted as if she was actually being physically attacked..I disagree that she didn’t have to sit in jail for false allegations and abuse off 911...but I’m sure it was a white judge that set this racist free

She lied to the police and said she was being assaulted, she was raising her voice as if someone was about to k!ll her. Police could've k!lled that guy because of her blatantly lying and putting on a big ACT. Like the lady that jumped on the kid she falsely accused of stealing her phone. Oh what about the 1 that pulled a gun on 2 ladies about a parking issue. So when the lady put her gun away IF the other 2 ladies had a gun too, what would have happened? when someone's life flash in front of their eyes from a RACIST.

The damage created ??? No that is not enough !! She literally was recorded lying on the phone about an assault using color as a motivation to urge cops to come faster !! Point is she lied on an emergency line & that is against the law ! She should be in jail especially with everything going on... I’ve heard families lose their kids over prank calls to the police stations so how come she isn’t losing her freedom which ultimately would have ended those things anyway 🤔 I’m pretty sure a trump supporting company would hire her no problem 🤷🏽‍♂️💯

Yes they are two very different types of cases but the media is always saying when it's a black victim and a white perpetrator but they don't say it when it's a white victim any black perpetrator the last event with the Asian person oh not person persons elderly who were knocked down or punched by a black man they won't even call it a hate crime they did say Asian victim but they didn't say the perpetrator was black I blamed the media and the people that listen to everything they say on all this stuff that's been going on in our country

It really grinds my gears the way some people can just dismiss what this woman did and say "well she's been through enough already" knowing that if the roles were reversed, the black man would be under the jail. There REALLY needs to be some legislation passed that says if a person (regardless of color) calls the police on another person without just cause, they should face a penalty. Jail time or a hefty fine should be the punishment for such a heinous and deliberate crime. That man could have been killed for nothing!! all because she took offense to him reminding her of the LAW.

She will speak publicly to profit off on the damage she did to society
She did an awful thing, but she’s paid dearly already. She’s been publicly shamed and lost her livelihood. She probably won’t ever be able to get another job in her industry (finance) bc of the reputational risk involved. Anyhow, more punishment at this point is just piling on.
codebrker24 11 days ago
No, it's not. She made a false report. That is a crime. I want to read the judgement of the judge to understand why it was felt charges needed to be dismissed. I also want to see what Ms Cooper was actually charged with. This also makes it possible for Ms Cooper to sue to get her job back. I am sure her former employer is currently meeting with the legal team to discuss if, how, and or when a suit against them by Ms Cooper will be forthcoming. By having charges dismissed, she can effectively argue that she was wrongfully terminated because under the court of law she didn't do anything wrong.
Shih Tzus Rule
Shih Tzus Rule 11 days ago
he did threaten her. All you had to do was read his transcript of the portion of their conversation before he started filming and his admission that he and his birder friends who didn't like other people in that part of the park and especially not with dogs had a practice of filming people with dogs and harassing them; of the videos he showed of that, only one was a man and he knocked his phone out of his hands, a dog walker not in the mood. And he admitted to taking treats to the park to lure people's dogs for just such "intransigences". She should have sued her boss Franklin Templteon, who promoted an employee who was a wife beater and gave out far too much information over the phone to the public about her. The mistake Mr. Cooper made this time was pulling his stuff early in the morning, when no one else was around, and picking on the wrong woman. Instead of getting up in his face and arguing with him, she got scared AFTER he did threaten and try to intimidate her and tried to lure her dog with his treats "he carries for just such intransigences"- which is why she shorted out on his video, that's when he started recording or he cut the first part. I would have described what he was wearing. and the NY cops were NY cops and barely bothered investigating. It was already decided early on - too flammable to touch.

@Nikki4MW how many innocent blacks are killed at the hands of other blacks but that is never talked about and its the biggest threat to the black community when is the discussion going to happen.
Nikki4MW 8 days ago
@james thomas it’s not victim mentality when it’s been proven over and over again that racism and false claims have been made against black people. Whether a person votes for the Democrat or Republican Party or not, the issue of racism is still here alive and well. How many unarmed black men, women and children have gotten killed because of hate and false assumptions that were made about them? The only way people’s attitudes will be changed is when they receive harsh punishments for committing hate crimes against black people. If you can’t seem to grasp that, then you’re also part of the problem.
james thomas
james thomas 8 days ago
@Nikki4MW it's the narrative you have been feed all your life it's the victim mentality you are told blacks can't do this or that because of their skin color. Joe Biden said the other day that black and Latinos do not know how to use computers and yet blacks vote democratic every election even though that party historically has held the black race down. Change will never come with democrats in office don't get me twisted I'm not pro trump but he was not the big racist the liberal media would have us believe. I would love to see the divide in this country end we are stronger together but they want us separated it's easier for them to control us.
Nikki4MW 8 days ago
@james thomas Like I had stated before, how many blacks have falsely accused a white person of a crime that was never actually committed? When black folks call the police on a white person it’s for a reason not because of their skin color. It’s definitely a one sided situation. Whites are more protected and believed just on the strength of their skin color. That’s not division that’s facts; that a lot of people just refuse to accept.
