Christian Cooper says he doesn't want Amy Cooper charged— says he won't cooperate with the Manhattan DA. "She’s already paid a steep price— that’s not enough of a deterrent to others? Bringing her more misery just seems like piling on.”
Why Christian Cooper Won’t Pursue Charges Against Amy Cooper
Christian Cooper says he will not participate in the prosecution of the white woman who threatened to call 911 on him:
FAKE CALL CHARGES TWIST: Christian Cooper, the Black birdwatcher who filmed Amy Cooper calling police to report he was threatening her life in Central Park, says he will not cooperate with the DA, citing a "steep price" she's paid. @DavidMuir reports.
Christian Cooper is trying to be forgiving in the worst way. Make an example of that woman.
A reminder: What happened to George Floyd is what Amy Cooper hoped would happen to Christian Cooper.
George Floyd’s life mattered. Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor's lives mattered. Christian Cooper’s life matters. Black lives matter, and we have a lot of work to do to achieve true equality and justice for all. Join @ColorOfChange to become a part of that work today.
A white woman was put on leave from her job after she was filmed calling the police on a Black man who asked her to leash her dog, per Central Park rules. #AmyCooper said: "I'm going to tell them there is an African American man threatening my life." (Photos: Christian Cooper)
