Sucks to be Amy Cooper

The genuine hysterical fear of the woman in the video is obvious to me, but there are thousands of comments at the NY Times article, and just about every single one of them is against the woman. They say the hysteria is just a cold calculated act in order to get the police to arrest the innocent black guy.

But as reported by a newspaper in the U.K., the woman has a proven track record of being a liberal. She donated money to Barrack Obama, Pete Buttigieg, and John Kerry. So it’s very unlikely that this was an intentional act of hatred against black people. Had this happened to someone else, she may very well have been part of the mob condemning that other person.

Unfortunately for her, because her genuine hysterical fear of a black man (whom she politically correctly calls an “African American”) was caught on video, she has lost her job and may never be able to get another one because the crowd on media, both social as well as traditional, have “canceled” her.

So if you need yet another reason not to live in New York City, as if massively high prices for everything and susceptibility to dying from viral disease weren’t enough, you can add in the possibility of having what happened to Amy Cooper happen to you. It’s hard to imagine something like this happening in Phoenix, Arizona.

UPDATE

So maybe the hysteria was an act after all.

However, it can still be intimidating to be in a part of Central Park than can feel very desolate and deserted (if it’s early in the morning) and then encounter a big muscular black man who’s inappropriately telling you what you should be doing like he’s a cop or something except he’s not a cop. I’d be extremely on edge too, and Amy looks like a small skinny woman who would easily be physically overpowered.

I see people every day (before the pandemic that is) violating the rules in Manhattan, and I never butted in and acted like a cop.

      • “A tanning salon owner, Bobby Catone defies NYS’ PAUSE order and opens his business regardless of the consequences.”

        JS, maybe Mr. Catone opened his business not because he thinks tanning is an essential service, but because he’s a business owner who needs to make money to keep his business open. Can’t you pass up ANY chance to take a shot at Staten Island? What should Catone do? Lose his business, see his family starve, get addicted to oxycontin to dull the pain of his crisis, see his wife divorce him,………and then become an example of “guidos gone bad” so that you could write on LOTB that his sad decline was due to the lack of a cultured environment in Manhattan and a value transference career?

    Central Park this morning: This woman’s dog is tearing through the plantings in the Ramble.

    ME: Ma’am, dogs in the Ramble have to be on the leash at all times. The sign is right there.
    HER: The dog runs are closed. He needs his exercise.
    ME: All you have to do is take him to the other side of the drive, outside the Ramble, and you can let him run off leash all you want.
    HER: It’s too dangerous.
    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.
    HER: What’s that?
    ME (to the dog): Come here, puppy!
    HER: He won’t come to you.
    ME: We’ll see about that…

    I pull out the dog treats I carry for just for such intransigence. I didn’t even get a chance to toss any treats to the pooch before Karen scrambled to grab the dog.

    HER: DON’T YOU TOUCH MY DOG!!!!!

    That’s when I started video recording with my iPhone, and when her inner Karen fully emerged and took a dark turn…

    —————————————————————————————————

    Why isn’t this being reported? Wasn’t a white woman murdered in a park in NYC recently, by some black men? He said to her “I’m going to do what I want, but you’re not going to like it.” and apparently he thinks its ok to say this to a women he encounters alone in a park. No wonder she was so panicky,
    I hope she gets her dog back. 😦

      • I go walking with my dogs in a large urban park 2-3 times per week. Dogs are loose all the time. Bicyclists violate the rules all the time. Pot smokers violate the rules all the time. Everyone violates the rules all the time. The only thing I’ve ever done in response was to learn to modify my behavior to adjust to the circumstances or to drive to another less convenient park.

        This lady should not have reported him but she clearly had an overactive puppy on her hands who likely had been kooped up all day and required exercise. Then this prima Donna comes along acting like he’s making a citizen’s arrest. Unlike the jogger in GA, she doesn’t assault the would be sheriff but instead calls the cops. Exactly what the jogger in GA should have done.

    • I’m not sure I agree he’s the Karen here (isn’t there a male name for that now?). He told her to obey a clear rule she was indisputably violating, and didn’t make any attempt to “go over her head”. She’s the one who thought she was entitled to do whatever she wanted, and demanded assistance from another party to force somebody to let her. Also, SWATting somebody, and that’s exactly what she was doing, is contemptible behavior that needs to be smacked down hard. Apparently that happened in this case.

      • Pretty sure the Black guy IS the Karen in this particular situation. He was the one trying to enforce the rules on his own. If there had been a “manager” for this situation, he would have called for him. Her call was about the threat he made to her dog.

        Not saying I’m still not enjoying the woman getting cancelled since she’s tripped by her own cancel culture rules, but she’s not the Karen.

      • In this society, it is highly inappropriate for civilians to tell, let alone compel, strangers to obey rules. If that were the case, we could let the rednecks run wild in every negroville in the nation: commanding them to obey every ordinance.

        I would suspect someone of borderline mental illness if I witnessed them trying to force rule obeying on a stranger as if we live in some high trust, low violence Mayberry where everyone is no more than three times removed.

        That is the duty of the police and other similar government employees, and no one else. Neither this man nor anyone else has the training, let alone the authority, to compel behavior from strangers short of saving another from harm.

        This mentally ill faggot went looking to pick a fight with a stranger, and to harass someone else’s pet as evidenced by the fact tat he was carrying dog treats but has no dog.

        His behavior is that of an unstable individual, which is especially dangerous coming from a member of the statistically higher violent crime Black group. No men should have hostile interactions with strange women on the street or their dogs. If they do, the cops should be called. Anyone with any sense would have called them.

No “normal” guy would be such a do-gooder and so narrow minded as to call out someone in an obviously large and empty space to leash an obviously harmless yuppy dog (its not like it was a pit bull). The guy’s insistence on getting a stranger to comply with a regulation in unnecessay circumstances shows me there’s something wrong with him.

But when she was actually on the phone with 911 she said an African American man (wearing a bicycle helmet) was threatening her and her dog. .

    • Arizona is in the top 10 in the US overall crime, 16th in violent crimes and 20th in murder. It is not particularly safe. Maine is the most peaceful state. Crime rates generally do not correlate with gun laws, but very much with “demographics”. A state (or country) that has liberal gun laws generally does so because the dominant population is scared of violent minorities. Racially homogeneous countries are safer, and tend to have more restrictive gun laws because gun ownership is seen as a privilege to be earned rather than as a necessity for self defense.

  13. She does sound like she’s in near-hysterics here, and at that point you really can’t expect clear-thinking from anyone. She’s doing some bone-headed things that a calculating person would not do, no matter whether that person was a racist or a good liberal. Saying “African-American blah blah” just begs for blowback. Don’t do it, stupid.

    The “you’re not going to like it.” comment can be interpreted as “I am going to poison your dog”, at the very best. This guy is super creepy, and unlike her is just as calculating as can be. He’s keeping all his threats implicit and so acceptable.

    I’ve been confronted by Pit Bulls and other genuinely dangerous dogs in parks and have considered buying a baton or pepper spray. Dog treats would be last on my list. That’s long-term planning for someone trying to cause trouble, not protect himself.

Both groups are displacing his people at an alarming rate. I have no further comment, but he answers to his constituents who aren’t his kind.

  16. But as reported by a newspaper in the U.K., the woman has a proven track record of being a liberal. She donated money to Barrack Obama, Pete Buttigieg, and John Kerry. So it’s very unlikely that this was an intentional act of hatred against black people. Had this happened to someone else, she may very well have been part of the mob condemning that other person.

    The left would just say that the fact that even an avowed liberal can behave this way just shows the power of systemic, structural, institutional racism in a racist nation built on white supremacy. I.e., she might genuinely believe she’s not racist, but racism is so much a part of the air we breathe that it’s baked in the cake and even white liberal can’t help but behave in racist ways. There’s no solution other than for whites to die off and hand over the reins to numinous NAMs who will usher in a new era of peace and prosperity.

  17. It was a harmless cocker spaniel that wasn’t bothering anyone. But she still broke the leash rule.

    As for him, going around with dog treats to harass dog owners is asinine. Not to mention recording a stranger is creepy. And he does threaten her. “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.” is absolutely a threat.

    He says he only meant “dog treats”. He probably did. But how is someone supposed to know that? If a woman (or a kid) is alone in the park and some strange man comes up, harasses them, records them, threatens them then, yeah, they should call the police. Now, he didn’t actually “threaten her life”. But there’s no way to really know what he meant. I’m sure she was nervous about what he might do as well as aggravated by the confrontation. So she embellished.

    On the other hand, he was angry so he posted it to Facebook to get back at her. Everyone knows there’s a twitter mob just looking for their next target (like Hana Kimura). I don’t know what can be done about public figures. But there definitely needs to be some privacy laws against posting video and personal information about private citizens on the internet without their consent.
    ***
    There are “influencers” on social media who are organized and paid to make stories go viral and whip up mobs. We saw one with the Covington High School student wearing the MAGA hat at the Lincoln Memorial a couple of years ago. In fact, several countries have “call centers” full of people who’s job it is to do that. For a few hundred thousand a year they can employ dozens of people to cause a lot of mischief. I’m sure there are billionaires and groups in America doing the same thing. They’re paid to manage dozens of accounts and probably hundreds of bots. You can sometimes tell a comment section is being spammed because of the thousands of generic insults and wisecracks aimed at someone mentioned in the article that aren’t actually about what was discussed in the article.

    Don’t misunderstand. I’m not saying this guy is an influencer. I’m saying that influencers are always looking for stories to push. That’s the “red meat” that attracts views, followers, subscribers, etc. And they need lots of followers to influence. Because it’s their followers’ retweeting and sharing their stories that gives them the influence. Sort of like a multi-level marking / pyramid scheme only with social media.

      This.

      Two people acting like jerks find one another, leading to an ordinary and unpleasant encounter. Not even police blotter stuff and completely un-newsworthy.

      Most blacks reflexively jump to racial solidarity — support the black person.
      Most white progressives and mainstream media are reflexively tribal — condemn the badwhite.

      Liberal whites abhor To Kill A Mockingbird racism. Instead, they are entranced by the idea that they are the moral superiors of people of their own race.

      I watched the video with a Nice White Lady friend, who makes nothing of the fact that that Ms. Cooper had impeccable lefty bona fides, prior to her downfall. It’s inconceivable to my friend that something like this might happen to her.

Moreover, the Espenshade study shows the most discriminated demographic is actually working class whites. They’re the ones paying the affirmative action toll. Even asians and upper middle class whites receive preferential treatment at the expense of poor whites.

Pretty much the only times it’s acceptable to bring up is if an authority asks you for a physical description, or if you’re using it to score status points against badwhites by bashing their racism and pointing out how enlightened you are. You don’t just volunteer the description.

      This was a liberal woman working a high-powered corporate job in NYC. She clearly internalized these rules very well and played by them. She intentionally broke the rule because she was scared and believed, according to her liberal worldview, that the cops operate by a different playbook if a black man is in the picture, and that he would recognize the threat.

  21. Another reason not to live in NYC: you can actually have a yard, or possibly even some serious acreage, rather than feel compelled to let a dog run around unleashed in a leash-only area of a park.

    Also, this means you can let the dog outside to do its business without riding down an elevator or walking down several flights of stairs.

    I had a dog one time while living in a 4th floor apartment, which probably also involved close to a quarter-mile walk from my door to a place the dog could go. I love dogs, but in retrospect, I don’t think owning a dog was really worth it under those circumstances.

    But this woman doesn’t seem to have a husband or kids, which starts to become a pretty sad lifestyle in your 40s (though a lifestyle that NYC encourages), so of course she wanted a dog. Apparently she lost the dog now, along with her job.

        I wonder if that means she was just fostering it (but perhaps for a while, with the intention of adopting it, as she seemed to be treating it as “her” dog), or even if she adopted it, she might have signed something that said the foster agency can “claw back” an adopted dog if there is evidence of cruelty.

        Though this seems like the kind of thing you could fight, if you wanted to, and probably win (possession being 9/10 of the law and all). Maybe she doesn’t have any fight in her at the moment — her serotonin levels are probably crushed.

  22. I don’t think either party acted particularly well. The woman shouldn’t have been there with her dog unleashed. When the man told her she should go elsewhere, she should’ve done that.

    The man, however, shouldn’t have made it appear he would poison her dog. He shouldn’t have recorded her on his phone after that. She shouldn’t have called the police and make a big stink about how he was black. He shouldn’t have called her a Karen afterwards.

    Finally, I don’t think this story deserves national or even international attention. It’s just a warning to white women that they’re not allowed to ever call the police on black men – or else!

    • “It’s just a warning to white women that they’re not allowed to ever call the police on black men – or else!”

      Yeah, the moral that they seem to be drawing for us here — not necessarily even this case, but the whole “Karen” crusade — is that white women shouldn’t travel about unescorted. Except in areas where the dangerous men are overwhelmingly likely to be white. So, maybe West Virginia and Wyoming?

      Probably a key factor in her stupid behavior was that this guy (despite being a gay bird-watcher) was way more physically intimidating than she. She’s accustomed to the idea, as a single white gal in the city, that the police are on her side, they’re what even out the odds for her. So she felt compelled to invoke them the second she started to feel physically threatened.

      The ability of women to feel confident calling the police when they feel physically threatened by people bigger and scarier than they, without a large risk of their entire lives being ruined as a consequence, is a crucial underpinning to female independence. Yep, the key cases are mostly women who overreacted. But the more you point the needle towards telling white women not to call the police, the more power you give to the sort of men who would seek to physically intimidate them.

      I keep thinking back to Glubb, and how he pointed out that in the late days of the Abbasids, women gained all sorts of unprecedented privileges and traveled about unescorted — rare for an Islamic society. But the Abbasids, of course, grew too decadent to stop the Turks. When their empire collapsed, the social order broke down somewhat, and women once again couldn’t go outside without an escort (and with their privileges consequently reverting to the Islamic mean).

      • The MET is a non-profit after all, so the employees aren’t making much money, but like Harvard, they have a large pot of gold at the disposal of their upper staff.

    • The liberals say we should believe all women, so it’s impossible for a woman to be a crazy hysterical vindictive bitch.

      But seriously, the article puts a whole new weird twist on this story.

      • The woman is clearly somewhat imbalanced and eccentric. But not THAT imbalanced — again, she had a seemingly successful corporate career. People who are super-weird, that no one likes, tend not to rise in corporate jobs. And her work sounds like value transference within value transference — she worked for an investment management firm, but she was a “VP of Investment Solutions”, whatever the hell that means, not a portfolio manager.

        So my first guess is to say there’s probably SOMETHING to the story with this married man. She wasn’t so crazy that she had schoolgirl daydreams about this guy for 4 years that she confused with reality. And she probably didn’t go after him just because he, a married man, spurned her advances. But the probability is also near-100% that she has exaggerated and embellished quite a lot.

        I read somewhere that she is an actuary, or at least she studied that. (my parents wanted me to become an actuary, because I was good at math in high school. They told me it was something to do with insurance which sounded very dull. I wanted to be a veterinarian, but there was no vet school in Vancouver, and I was too scared to move away on my own.)

        I wonder if Amy Cooper will move back to Canada. I hope she gets her dog back. Apparently she kept an Instagram account for her dog that had 6000 followers, but it is closed down now. People keep harping about her choking the dog, but I think she only did that because she was in such a panic after that man threatened that he “was going to do what he liked too, and she is not going to like it.”. She doubtlessly thought he was going to hurt the dog , at the very least. She was too distraught to put the dog’s leash back on, which is why she was holding him by the collar. She finally put the dog’s leash on when she was on the phone, and realized she couldn’t hear or be heard over the noise the dog was making. I think before that she was in such a panic she didn’t realize the dog was in distress.

        I am really disgusted at the way most people are saying horrible things about this woman. People aren’t looking at the facts and thinking things through. The threat the man made was menacing, and she was alone with him—no one else around. The woman may have a nervous personality, but the man is creepy weirdo. I wonder if he has done this before.

        I doubt it’s an IT job. She’s almost certainly some sort of middle manager within a division there, but I don’t know what exactly she oversaw. It’s not like she was telling portfolio managers what to do, she wasn’t their Chief Investment Officer, or anything like that. Corporate business division titles can be highly misleading. I once knew a girl who worked for a large company’s Business Analysis division. They were sort of rivals with the Business Analytics division. I don’t know that either division ever analyzed anything about businesses.

        @Rosenmops:
        She seems to have worked directly with insurance products at one point. Probably highly specialized and possibly innovative stuff — not home and auto. I feel like I could have enjoyed being an actuary, except that I’m too entrepreneurial and don’t do well in large bureaucratic organizations. But I like the idea of estimating the probability you’ll wreck your car in the next 6 months or die at a given age, based on a bunch of questions that I get to ask you and some facts that I get to dig up.

She probably believes Hollywood propaganda that she could take this guy in a fight. The guy was doing his best to discipline a disrespectful little Karen about the bird sanctuary. This bitch doesn’t deserve the punishment she has brought on herself, but she is just a smug little Karen at the end of the day. If she was too stupid to see by his yuppie style of dress, his slightly effeminate voice, and his likely effeminate mannerisms that he’s not a thug type guy then she along with the commentators here lack all social awareness as well as the ability to subtly differentiate between people within an ethnic strata. No wonder Hbd is taboo. Even supposedly educated people immediately begin making unworkable generalizations. “I’m going to do something you don’t like” means throwing a dog treat over a rock to make the dog run away from her. There were likely tons of people walking around who she could have yelled for help from. She called the cops because she was “calling the manager” in this instance.

        PS: I hope she sues her employer who is likely liberal as well.

        I don’t think she ever thought he was a thug. Thugs don’t wear bicycle helmets. He probably said “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.” in the same quiet, effeminate voice. I think she thought he was some sort of psycho. I don’t see anyone else in the video. I don’t believe he would have threatened her like that if there had been anyone else around.

        I think she approached him at first to try to stop him recording her, but she quickly thought better of it and backed off. She seems to get more scared as the encounter continues.

  34. she was a “VP of Investment Solutions”, whatever the hell that means, not a portfolio manager at Franklin Templeton.

    What does a job like that in Manhattan pay? What are the education requirements?

    • I think people found her pay was $175,000. Which seems low to me — it’s probably just base, with a typical bonus of at least $100,000 on top of that.

      Education requirements — in the corporate world, you need a Bachelor’s. An MBA is pretty optional, for the most part, assuming you get a good start out of undergrad. If you work directly in the investment process, a CFA is more highly regarded than an MBA, which is a (very difficult) self-study program.

  35. On the one hand, I believe someone who 1)is a liberal, 2) thinks she’s entitled to let her dog off-leash in an area where that’s against the rules, and 3) is a single, city-dwelling, “independent” career woman who has replaced the husband and children she should have with a dog [no doubt she calls herself a “dog mom” and the dog her “fur baby”] deserves what she gets. On the other hand, it does suck that if you’re alone in a park, and a large black man approaches you and says “I’m going to do what I want, but you’re not going to like it,” you have no recourse, because to attempt to do anything about it would be RACIST.

    As a commenter at Sailer’s said, the main narrative push here is the promotion of the idea that to threaten to call the cops on a black person is literally tantamount to a direct death threat, because the SJW conventional wisdom is that cops are nothing more than assassins who kill every black person they see on sight.

    • Living alone in the big city in your 40s is its own punishment. I don’t think you need to wish additional harm on these people. I don’t know that you can blame them; blame the system that led them there.

      She probably made some foolish choices when she was younger (though likely everyone around her cheered her on as she made the choice to prioritize her career over building a family). But it’s too late for her to have kids or a good husband now.

      • Like 99.9% of women want kids. It’s just that a large percentage of white women have no idea how to make decisions that lead to that outcome.

        Personally, I don’t think single white liberal women/harridans can be punished enough for their sins. This can’t happen to enough of them. I hope the New York Human Rights Stasi give her a huge fine and exile her to the sea in a little dinghy.

    • Hermes, there is absolutely no shortage of women having kids or wanting to have a family. People need to adjust their aspirations based on their ability. Not everyone is a handsome millionaire or sexy supermodel. Not everyone is going to find their Brad Pitt or VS model. Key to happiness in life is managing expectations. Or so was I taught.

    • Yeah…let’s also not forget that a lot of this is staged for consumption and manipulation by Management.

      Turns out that cop that killed George Floyd knew him. They worked club security together in overlapping shifts. What’s the real story here? Something personal? Cabal staging a riot because something important is about to break in the media? Is the coronavirus theater ending and some new charade is needed?

      Is Floyd even dead? Is the cop really a cop?

      Then there is the St. Paul cop who was caught smashing windows. Hmmm….

      • I wouldn’t sink to the level of a conspiracy theorist and posit that this whole things was staged, that Floyd isn’t dead or the cop isn’t really a cop, but in the “obvious questions everyone should be asking but no one does” department, what exactly was Floyd’s cause of death? The media wants us to think his heart beat its last beat with the cop’s knee still on his neck, but we have no evidence of that. It’s entirely possible he didn’t die until he reached the hospital.

        No, strike that. George Floyd *is* D. B. Cooper. After the jump he changed his skin color and became decades younger.

      This semi-cutie and her older sister came down to Chassidim Heights in Brooklyn from the Catskills with Molotov Cocktails and bombed a police vehicle that burned into a husk last night.

      As some of you know, the Catskills region is very ripe with proles in the Hudson Valley as in the City of Newburgh is ripe with NAMs in the Hudson Valley.

  39. Non-blacks (especially Whites) not following John Derbyshire’s tacit and implicit recommendations years and years ago regarding Blacks will lead to further problems.

    The fundamental pearl of wisdom is:

    ***Avoid most Blacks as much as possible. If one absolutely needs to deal with a Black person, be very respectful and figure out how to extricate oneself from the interaction in as pleasant a manner as possible. For a number of reasons including the lack of attention many Black women get from non-Black men and higher status Black men and including the Black-White IQ gap, many Blacks have serious insecurities and have been repeatedly told the cause of many of their personal failures is systemic racism. Many (if not the vast majority) of Blacks are not especially forgiving of even minor faux pas from non-Blacks.

    But I’d also add:

    ***Avoid interacting excessively with most liberals- especially the White female type.

    There are always exceptions to either of the above rules- but the RISKS are ALMOST NEVER WORTH the REWARD regarding associating or interacting to any appreciable degree with Blacks or liberals.

    That said, what the cop did was stupid and excessive. I honestly don’t know if he was or wasn’t a racist because it’s also quite possible the cop was on a power trip and wanted to teach Mr. Floyd a lesson (from his perspective), especially if he felt Mr. Floyd was being irascible or intransigent. A lot of regular civilians don’t understand how many cops are prone to go on power trips like they think their badge makes them king or something.

    Ms. Cooper was also stupid and was likely also going on a White feminist power trip. There may or may not have been racism at play too. It’s tough for me to really tell. I’ve met White women like Ms. Cooper.

    Btw, the White cop in MN was married to an Asian and liked the Latino customers of the Latin bar and dance hall he sometimes did bouncer work in. He was occasionally replaced by (ironically) Mr. Floyd on nights when the clientele was mostly Black:

    • It definitely seems like the only people who become cops these days have antisocial personality disorder. It’s the perfect job for a natural-born bully. Get paid to do what you love!

      Derbyshire never had much of a career to be destroyed. Being a contributor to National Review doesn’t by itself pay the bills. Back when Derb was still there, some of the contributors publicly shared their tax returns. IIRC, Derb had a little nest egg from his years as a programmer, plus earned about $20k a year from his writings.
