  1. She’s a sad little bigot. I’m sure Donnie will defend her.

    • This man never takes time to actually think before he does or tweets something.
      I think he doesn’t really care if he doesn’t get re-elected. He’s just being a comedian at this point and I don’t really care. Both sides, Left or Right, have tons of biases. I don’t support either right now. I can’t vote for the lesser of two evils because both of them are evil. Trump says what he wants, he exercises the first amendment, but in a way that people can find it stupid or hateful. Others don’t want him to express what he says, trying to call it hate speech, restricting his first amendment right.

      My point is, neither democrat or republican is helping here. They’re just battling and opposing each other for no reason at all. Politics will always be like this. Personally, I love that this country was built and progressed by all races of decent human beings, building up from all of their past mistakes, building a free country that we now have today, and as a country, we could do much better. We have a lot to fix and a lot to heal and get done and over with. Being obsessed over one another and how much we hate the opposing side gets us NOWHERE. I see videos of Biden talking about Trump. I see videos of Trump talking about opposing people and how people spread lies and hoaxes. It’s all a joke. It’s like they’re obsessed with arguing with, and bashing one another, like a damaged couple.

      Being the president nowadays is like being in a reality TV show, or has it always been this way? I don’t really know, if you know, tell me. Neither Trump or Biden are fit for a presidential role. But it’s sad, that people tend to vote for the most popular candidates, instead of a candidate who actually wants unconditional and EQUAL healing for the people that live within this country.

    • V
      Yeah but he can’t pardon her!

    About time, she called in a false police report and abused her dog.

    • @Louise 99 yeah! Your feelings for me are shining through!

    • @William H Music 2020 – Yeah … but according to Brookings Institution, liberals provide 64% of the GDP, which is a good thing because 9 of the 10 states with the highest poverty levels are red states.

    • @William H Music 2020 – Hey willy … you hate socialism .. right? Check this out. Biggest socialist states are red states. From Business Insider. This is called “balance of payments”. CA residents pay $348 in federal taxes for every $1 they receive in federal funding. N.Y. residents pay $1,216 in fed taxes for every $1 they get in funding. Alaska residents receive $6,355 in funding for every $1 they pay. Kentucky residents receive $5,984 in funding for every $1 they pay. That’s called welfare.
      OUCH! And that isn’t fake news.

    Good Job, though why did it take more than a month to file charges?

    • Hahaha, and they say america isn’t racist. Hahahaha

    • Kristi Marie | July 6, 2020 at 5:31 PM | Reply

      I probably already went to grand jury.

    • Roald Shakleton | July 6, 2020 at 6:34 PM | Reply

      ‘Cuz they’s racist.

    • Roald Shakleton | July 6, 2020 at 6:42 PM | Reply

      @frictionRx9 People like Amy were too busy collectin’ welfare; sellin’ meth, oxycodone and moonshine to each other. Gosh Dang hillbillies.

    • The Courts Are Probably Over Flowing. Have You Seen How Many Karen Cockroaches have Come Out from Under the Cracked Rottening Woodwork. . Clearly, this One Is Definitely Raw. She Could have Caused this man Minding his Own Business Life. . And the Dog.,

    nice to hear that finally some of these people can be held accountable for false accusations on anybody without any repercussion whenever they lie

  5. Alex Cremers | July 6, 2020 at 3:46 PM | Reply

    She’s so full of anger and hatred that she almost strangled her dog.

  6. sandra olajide | July 6, 2020 at 3:46 PM | Reply

    she is so caught up in her hate rant that she almost kills the dog in the process…

  7. Finally some consequence for our actions, its long overdue. All these Karens should be charged for threatening getting cops on minorities.

  8. JessieBanana | July 6, 2020 at 3:47 PM | Reply

    Good, this needed to happen. This wasn’t the case of her bias against Black people making her feel threatened when she wasn’t. That is still a problem, but it isn’t the same as weaponizing the police deliberately against Black men and then escalating the sound and panic in your voice to raise alarm for your situation. We saw her act that all out.

    • Dave Schultz | July 6, 2020 at 5:32 PM | Reply

      @ihave35cents , Im sure they were collecting money for tuition or to donate to a local food bank. Its about giving back to community ya know. Forced reparations will be legal soon if Democrats are elected.

    • @ihave35cents Fine. But she wasn’t being mugged or beaten. She just acted as if she were. So who is playing “little victim” here?

      If you were in fact mugged, what does that have to do with this man watching birds in the park? Should a man be punished for what those who look him do? If so, God help us all.

    • ihave35cents | July 6, 2020 at 5:40 PM | Reply

      @Dave Schultz why didn’t I think about that

    • @ihave35cents Too bad they only mugged ya…

    • IAmaPersion | July 6, 2020 at 6:55 PM | Reply

      @Dave Schultz LOL! Reparations will never happen. Nobody alive today in this country was a slave or a slave owner. At some point, blacks have to realize blaming whites for all their issues will never fix anything. They need to take some self responsibility and work on their own communities. Just this past weekend in Chicago there were 67 shootings and 13 fatalities. But they still blame whites for police shootings which rarely happen in this country.

  9. She should be charged with animal cruelty as well! Look at the poor dog being yanked by the neck and dragged around as she rants.

    • Lisa Kennedy | July 6, 2020 at 8:57 PM | Reply

      @mm this sounds EXACTLY like reverse rascism

    • @Lisa Kennedy This sounds like white fragility. I said something that is true but that may portray white people and how they approach race issues in an unflattering way and you immediately get defensive and accuse me of racism.

    • Some Person | July 6, 2020 at 9:08 PM | Reply

      @mm then why keep talking trash about white people if you aren’t attacking? Most of them aren’t the problem, but you’re lumping them all together and getting angry for no reason.

    • @Some Person Talking trash? I am not talking trash. That would imply that my statements go too far and are somehow unjustified. Thats not the case. What i am saying is actually true albeit not flattering.

      And if most white people were as you say, there would be no racism issues like those displayed by Ms. Cooper and others on such a consistent basis.

    • @mm i can only imagine if we where blue and green instead of white and black

  10. Charge her for not having her dog on a leash, too.

  11. Franklin Hall | July 6, 2020 at 3:50 PM | Reply

    She is rightfully charged for overreacting and lying.

  12. Wonderful news. Hope they make an example of her. They should add a charge of animal abuse.

  13. I’m a 52 years old black American, Military vet, and I’m finally starting to feel like America is finally growing up a little bit. It had to be dragged Kicking and Screaming into the 21st century, but maybe it’s finally coming.

      There are many of us that have been on your side for ages David, it’s a disgrace that can’t be overcome by nationalism or flag waving, I am a fellow Vet, not that it means much after a lot I’ve heard from other Vets. While white America was momentarily quarantined long enough to actually understand a few recent outrageous instances of bigotry, few of us understand the full scope of the injustice, for that I’m so sorry. I can’t make people understand but like you I am encouraged that maybe, just maybe, you’re right. However I also know there are people that are working furiously to make anything good like BLM into terrorism. They also think the contraction for anti fascist “antifa” is a terrorist organization when it’s an American value. We’ll stand together or we’ll fall apart.

  14. She called the police, hoping to get a man killed, nearly strangled the poor dog, all because she didn’t like that a black man was telling her what to do? She made that threat and then carried it out with deliberate and indefensible malice.

      Yes and you could hear the change in the voice tone while talking to 911 operator. Almost in hysteria

  15. “I’m going to tell them there’s an African American man threatening my life.” is going to be one of her biggest regrets in her life 😛

    • Those first 5 words
      “I’m going to tell them,”
      I feel like that is interesting from a psychology point of view.
      Almost like what a small child would say…
      I’m going to tell them
      Obviously indicating that is NOT WHAT WAS REALLY GOING ON.
      Enjoy your falsification charges Amy Cooper.

    • This Chick Needs Help And Dont Know It. She Must have Some Deep Rooted Demons Inside that Wont Remain Silent Or She Hears Voices. . Either One Is A Danger.

    • @Isa He Loves Dogs Enough to Point to the Big Sign that Says. . DOGS MUST BE ON A LEASH. . That’s Probably What Put her Pamper In A Tail Spin. She Was Ignored. . Lolol. Heeeheee. The Dog Was Much Prettier. .

    • @Linda PS Yep Karen the Birdwatcher put her in her place. I am sure he is happy right now.

    • @Linda PS You need to call the police, and ask them to give the dog lady the death penalty. You’ll feel better.

  16. how differnt this would be if the Black guy had not filmed everyrthing.

    • @Nick Mithell Don’t claim things that aren’t true.

    • david w
      What about how different this would be if the guy had not filmed it “I know your a nice unbiased person right”

    • Nick Mithell | July 6, 2020 at 6:14 PM | Reply

      @Elvd Actually it is true.He admitted it in an interview.

      All we are seeing on video is her panicked response, not what he said to her before the response.

      This appears to be a modus operandi of similar types of videos.

      The videos are easy to make. A person just has to threaten someone, and then start filming the response.

      Oh the world be so racist, poor me…

      Yeah right…

    • So glad everyone had a camera now they can defend themselves and not be killed unnecessarily

    • @Jimmy Win and that’s why the whites will inherit the Earth.

  17. De'Andre Wilson | July 6, 2020 at 4:16 PM | Reply

    Good let’s keep this going, there are plenty more like her out there.

    • Plenty more annoying, stuck-up, self-righteous, Democrat Karens. I agree completely.

    • Well said.

    • Remove the one in the white house and you shut down many blatant acts.

    • IAmaPersion | July 6, 2020 at 6:58 PM | Reply

      @Jimmy Win LOL! People like you think Trump is to blame for all of this? Hilarious. You’re proof of the amount of stupidity in this country. There has always been racist white people and there are loads of racist black people as well. Whomever is in office at the time changes nothing.

  18. She needs to be cited for animal cruelty as well

    • Otakun The vegan | July 6, 2020 at 4:21 PM | Reply

      The dog wanted nothing to do with her, looks like the pup wanted to go with the man instead.

    • I agree. She only had the poor dog for a few days and returned it to the shelter just days after this incident. I hope a loving family adopted him/her.

  19. Elizabeth Ayres | July 6, 2020 at 4:31 PM | Reply

    Good. Her dog isn’t the only one who needs a leash, and a muzzle

  20. Couldnt have happened to a more deserving rasist.
