Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Public Advocate Jumaane Williams called on the NYPD to file a lawsuit against a white woman who called police to a black man who asked her to release her dog in Central Park.
On Monday, Amy Cooper’s dog ran free in the Ramble park when Christian Cooper (no connection) said his dog must be tied.
He became hysterical and accused Chrisitian Cooper of threatening him and calling 911.
Video part of the interaction between the two became viral on social media.
Now, Adams and Williams want the NYPD to file a lawsuit against Amy Cooper for reporting a crime that never happened.
Both officials said if the video never circulated, Christian Cooper could be in jail now.
“Those who responded to police officers should have seen the tape and immediately arrested Amy Cooper,” Adams said
“Where do you reach out and know that your actions are illegal and that crime did not occur,” Williams said. “Then, ‘We have bigger fish to fry, how dare you! How dare you!’
The police said no complaints were filed from either party.
They were reviewing the incident and contacting the Manhattan District Prosecutors’ Office.
The Human Rights Commission is investigating.
