    White woman Amy Cooper fired after calling police on black man who told her to leash dog in New York

    White woman Amy Cooper fired after calling police on black man who told her to leash dog in New York’s Central Park | South China Morning Post

    In viral video, investment firm employee tells phone operator ‘there’s an African-American man threatening my life

    New York mayor condemns her actions as ‘racism, plain and simple’
    ================================================== =======
    The black guy did not have his dog leashed in Central Park, so she made this outlandish call to the cops. She got what shedeserved.

    Ummm...

    The black guy isn't the one who had the dog. The lady had the dog off its leash. Just saying...

    You've got your story mixed a bit there.

    I couldn’t find the video, but this is sad. The insult apparently done to the black person is possibly one of several he’s experienced, something white people may have trouble imagining. But the woman apparently apologized for being such a jerk. Why couldn’t her employer just assign her to some consciousness-raising session w/o pay rather than fire her? When things like this happen, the idea should be to make a better citizen out of the offender, to have her confront her own prejudices. This may make her unemployable and bitter.

    Why is this even a news story? The lady should have put her dog on the leash, but the man did threaten the dog so it isn't unreasonable for her to be scared.

    On a a national stage, she came off as
    • a dangerous liar,
    • a racist, and
    • a puppy-choker.


    That's a serious PR liability.

    The firm really had no other reasonable choice.
    I may be wrong.

    Because the woman lied trying SWAT the guy.

    Did you miss that part where she told potentially lethal lies?
    I may be wrong.

    From the article:

    Her words to the operator, “There is an African-American man, I’m in Central Park. He’s recording me and threatening me and threatening my dog"

    His words to her that prompted the call, "Look, if you are going to do what you want, then I am going to do what I want and you aren't going to like it."

    That is clearly a threat......

    I agree, they both could have handled the situation much better. My opinion, 60 - 40 on the woman. All she had to do was leash her dog. I'm a dog owner and frequent walker, if she is off leash when hiking its my responsibility. On leash when walking in public.

    Yep, completely agree the woman is at fault her for not putting the dog on the leash and overreacting. The guy shouldn't have made the threat though as that was obviously going to escalate the situation, it wasn't his place to enforce the rules. If it had been a man instead of a woman he made that comment to he likely would have got punched in the face, but then again he likely would not have threatened another man.
