Amy Cooper Made 2nd 911 Call to Falsely Accuse Black Bird-Watcher

Source: New York Times


Amy Cooper, the white woman who called the police on a Black bird-watcher in Central Park, made a second, previously unreported call to 911 in which she falsely claimed that the man “tried to assault her,” a prosecutor said on Wednesday.

Ms. Cooper, who appeared in court remotely to answer misdemeanor charges that she had filed a false report, was negotiating a plea deal with prosecutors that would allow her to avoid jail.

Joan Illuzzi, a senior prosecutor, said that Ms. Cooper in her two 911 calls in May had used the police in a way that was “both racially offensive and designed to intimidate” and her actions were “something that can’t be ignored.”

Still, Ms. Illuzzi told the court that the Manhattan district attorney’s office was exploring a resolution to the case that would require Ms. Cooper to publicly take responsibility for her actions in court and attend a program to educate her on how harmful they were.

4. What happens if she doesn't have service?

All Black people in Manhattan should start carrying smelling salts at all times for her.

5. They should have her do talks to young people about

What it means to discriminate against another person for whatever reason, & what happens to u when u do. OR they can have her do volunteer work to help the homeless. Throwing her ass in jail just means the public has to pay for her incarceration &she w be even more hardened in her raciat ways. This way at least the public w be able to benefit in some way from shaming her.

9. That's only IF we can fix her broken mind.

Of course, if she starts saying the wrong message, there are shock collars.

We need to find the root of her hatred and paranoia. Did this come from poor parenting or a bad encounter on the streets somewhere? When the cause is found, rehabilitation can begin.

7. Some jail time would be very helpful

in educating her on how harmful her actions were.

10. For most wealthy repugs it is all a joke until it directly affects them

Jail time usually gets their attention.

8. Wild that assessment of the severity of her acts depends on viewing the NYPD as

a violent and racist gang.

Cool cool. Cool cool.

14. Yep, she wasn't finished with Mr. Cooper after what we saw...

on his video. She made another call to get him in even more trouble.

What a nasty piece of work she is.
