Central Park (Typhoid Mary) Amy Cooper Bramble Scenario Eerily Familiar And So Close to Home

The NYC Commission on Human Rights is announcing an investigation on behalf of the City into an incident involving Amy Cooper, following video footage of Ms. Cooper calling the police on Christian Cooper (no relation to Ms. Cooper), a Black man bird watching in the park, claiming Mr. Cooper was threatening her life.

The available footage of the incident, however, shows no evidence of Mr. Cooper threatening or approaching Ms. Cooper.

“At a time when the devastating impacts of racism in Black communities have been made so painfully clear — from racial disparities in COVID-19outcomes, to harassment of essential workers on the frontlines—it is appalling to see these types of ugly threats directed at one New Yorker by another,” said Sapna V. Raj, Deputy Commissioner of the Law Enforcement Bureau at the NYC Commission on Human Rights.

    Unfortunate that New York City Human Rights Commission can’t investigate Hunter College!
