Christian Cooper, the birdwatcher who was confronted in late May by a woman who became known as the “Central Park Karen,” is refusing to support the District Attorney’s criminal prosecution of Amy Cooper. Amy Cooper became infamous after her unhinged rant to the police was captured on video in late May.
In the video, Cooper can be heard hysterically claiming that an African American man was threatening her and her dog. The bizarre incident led to Amy Cooper losing her dog for a short time, losing her job permanently, and coming under harsh criticism from much of the general public.
It is the fallout that is causing Christian Cooper to withhold his support of the DA’s pursuit of criminal charges. Cooper said:
“On the one hand, she’s already paid a steep price. Adding, “Bringing her more misery just seems like piling on.”
Amy Cooper has apologized for her over-the-top response to her interaction with Christian Cooper. If she is prosecuted and found guilty for the infamous 911 call, she could face up to a year behind bars.
