Amy Cooper, better known as “Central Park Karen,” is now facing criminal charges for placing a bogus 911 call as a threat to a black man who asked her to put her dog on a leash.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance announced the charges against Amy in a statement:
Today our Office initiated a prosecution of Amy Cooper for Falsely Reporting an Incident in the Third Degree. Our office will provide the public with additional information as the case proceeds.
At this time I would like to encourage anyone who has been the target of false reporting to contact our Office. We are strongly committed to holding perpetrators of this conduct accountable
After the video of Amy sounding the white woman dog whistle on Christian Cooper, went viral she lost her dog, her job, and her reputation. I heard she got the dog back…Poor Henry.
Amy attempted to issue a half-hearted apology and argued she isn’t a racist, but the damage was already done.
Everyone who uses 911 as tool in their racist shenanigans and tomfoolery should be charged accordingly.
Amy, Karen, and Ken gone learn today!
