Charges against ‘Central Park Karen’ Amy Cooper dismissed
NY Post, Feb 16, 2021

Misdemeanor charges were dismissed Tuesday against Amy Cooper — the so-called “Central Park Karen” who falsely accused a black birdwatcher of “threatening” her — after she completed a handful of therapy sessions.

She had faced up to a year in prison on a single charge of falsely reporting an incident in the third degree.

Instead, a judge granted Manhattan prosecutors’ request to toss Cooper’s case after she completed five therapy sessions “designed for introspection and progress,” Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon at a brief virtual hearing.

“They sent her to Critical Therapy Center … who provided psychoeducation and therapy services which focused on the ways in which Ms. Cooper could appreciate that racial identities shape our lives but we cannot use them to harm ourselves or others,” Illuzzi-Orbon told Manhattan Criminal Court Justice Anne Swern.

“Psychoeducation about racial equality is woven into each therapy session to prompt understanding and reflection.”

Asked if she wanted to be heard, Cooper, dressed in a black turtleneck, told the judge, “No, your honor.” Her lawyer also declined to speak, saying he agreed with prosecutors’ assessment.

Swern then dismissed and sealed her case.

Sure looks like reeducation camps aren't a joke.

A false police report is serious. I'm not sure 5 "therapy" sessions are proportional to the crime.

So voting for Biden actually pays off?
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.
