Let it be said that the internet outrage for her treatment of the dog is not at the same levels for how she treated Mr. Cooper, whose life she put in danger by calling the police and saying that he was threatening her when he was not.
The organization Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue said in a Facebook post that Amy Cooper "voluntarily surrendered the dog" after the public reached out to them about the incident. "The dog is now in our rescue's care and he is safe and in good health", they write.
Shortly after the video was posted by the man's sister on Monday, someone who said they had been the white woman's dog walker identified her.
"I'm gonna tell them there's an African American man threatening my life", she says.
"It was unacceptable. And you know words are just words and I can't undo what I did. It's not excusable, it's not defensible". "We do not tolerate racism of any kind at Franklin Templeton". "While we're in the process of investigating this situation, the employee in question has been placed on administrative leave".
The incident is being pointed to as another example of white people calling the police on African Americans for mundane things. "And I understand why they do", she said.
"When I think about the police, I'm such a blessed person", she said.
She then does just that and becomes hysterical while on the phone with police, meanwhile Cooper continues to record the incident, remaining calm through the entire experience. According to Melody, Christian is an avid bird watcher so he likes to frequent parks. With its rocky outcrops and thick canopy, the area makes for an especially inviting stopover for birds on their northward migration, he said. "It's on the Atlantic flyway", he said.
Around 7:30 a.m., he spotted rowdy, 2-year-old Henry grazing through the brush, as his human, an investment banker in yoga trousers and a face mask, was standing right by a sign saying all dogs must be leashed.
The novel coronavirus shut down the city this spring along with its busy dog runs.
"He was running in an open field". A man is handcuffed underneath a auto and people are pleading and we're watching a man die.
She repeats herself once more, though Christian Cooper never appears to come any closer to her.
Christian Cooper said his encounter is not an uncommon experience for many black people in the U.S.
ME: Look, if you're going to do what you want, I'm going to do what I want, but you're not going to like it.
He says he then offered the dog some treats, as a way to encourage it to leave the woodland.
Christian Cooper described the beginning of the encounter, which was not recorded, in a post on Facebook.
By the end of the video, Amy Cooper's dog appeared very distraught.
He asks her not to approach him.
That's when Amy Cooper says she's going to call the police.
In the video, which has more than 21 million views on Twitter, the woman later identified as Amy Cooper tells the man behind the camera to stop recording her, and threatens to call the police on him.
Cooper is not heard making any threats on video. "I did not mean to harm that man in any way, ' she said, adding that she also didn't mean any harm to the African American community". I'm being threatened by a man in the Ramble.
"I'm in the Ramble, and there's a man, African American, he's got a bicycle helmet".
"Please call the cops", Christian Cooper says. "Thank you for your understanding".
