Misdemeanor Prices Dismissed Towards Amy Cooper After Graduating from Racial Bias Schooling Program (Replace)
Roommate, remember last May when Amy Cooper was caught on camera calling a black man’s police station after asking her to put her dog on a leash while they were in New York City’s Central Park ? Well, it looks like the charges she faced have been dropped.
According to CNN, Manhattan prosecutors dropped charges against her Tuesday after completing an education and therapy course on racial justice.
Deputy Prosecutor Joan Illuzzi said in court: “Given the problems at hand and Ms. Cooper’s lack of criminal background, we have an alternative solution for her, in line with our position on many initial arrest offenses the restorative justice offered. designed not only to punish, but to educate and promote healing in the community. “
Illuzzi went on to explain that Amy took her classes at the Critical Therapy Center and said they “focused on the way Ms. Cooper can see that racial identities shape our lives, but we can’t use them to help ourselves or cause harm to others. “
In July last year, it was officially reported that Amy would be charged with the incident, which immediately went viral on social media after a video of her encounter with Christian Cooper was shared.
At the time, District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr said, “Today our office has opened a criminal investigation against Amy Cooper for falsely reporting a third degree incident. We are determined to hold the perpetrators of this behavior accountable. “
After the charges, it became known that Christian Cooper did not want to participate in the investigation and stated, “On the one hand, she has already paid a high price. Isn’t that off-putting for others? Bringing more misery to her just seems to pile up. “
Amy completed a total of five sessions before charges against her were dropped.
