The infamous white woman walking her dog who called the police during a videotaped dispute with a Black man in Central Park was charged Monday with filing a false report.
Amy Cooper- now known as ” White woman dog walker racist” drew widespread condemnation for calling 911 to report she was being threatened by “an African-American man” when bird watcher Christian Cooper appeared to keep his distance as he recorded her rant on his phone. District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said in a statement on Monday that his office had charged Amy Cooper with falsely reporting the confrontation, a misdemeanor. She was ordered to appear in court on Oct. 14.
After the backlash, Amy Cooper released an apology through a public relations service, saying she “reacted emotionally and made false assumptions about his intentions.”
Many criminal law experts express their disappointments regarding the misdemeanor charge due to the fact that her actions were criminal. The public is now demanding for more fair treatment of racist whites who find it fun to call police on African Americans for eating, swimming and even reading at the library.
