Ok, so this biatch calls the cops, falsely accusing a black man of 'threatening' her (when all he was doing was asking her to keep her dogs on a lease), and in the publicity of it all, she was let go by her boss.

Now she wants everyone to feel sorry for her because SHE is the one who was discriminated against

I really dislike how the article tries to paint the birdwatcher as some sort of troublemaker for having the unmitigated gall to ask dog owners to follow the park's rules about leashing their dogs in that area.

Her gender?

"Wimmin be scared of black men"?

Her race?

"White girls hate black people"?

Yeah, the only racist is you, Becky, and you just hate getting called on it.

If this was in At-Will state, the case would be laughed right out.

The problem for this AW is, not only did she lose her job but any opportunity for future employment in the financial field. As so as anyone would hire her, the Twitter Trolls would brand that employer as racist and fascist for hiring her.

That part's not the fault of the article, that's directly stating what her attempt at a lawsuit is claiming.

[Fark user image image 500x279]


She's on video telling the guy that she will be believed over him when the cops come because she's white and he's just a black man. She gave him a "know your place, [insert slur]" speech.

The company for which she worked, would not only be facing an immediate public relations problem due to the video going viral. Down the line, if they ever get accused of hiring or promotion discrimination, and a lawyer was establishing a pattern, the firm will include Central Park Karen working there as evidence of the wrongdoing.
 
2021-05-27 8:49:43 AM  
She was the one breaking the rules by having her dog unleashed in an area where it isn't allowed.
I'm both a birdwatcher and a dog owner, and I've let my dog offleash in areas where its technically not allowed - and my dog has good recall and we watch and put him on his leash when we see people.  That being said - if this particular area is known for good birdwatching, I'd not let my dog off leash there - Central Park is big enough to find another place.

This lady was TOTALLY in the wrong. And she's making it worse with this lawsuit.
Dummy dumb dumb.

"I'm calling the cops ... I'm gonna tell them there's an African American man threatening my life".

There is an African American man-I am in Central Park- he is recording me and threatening myself and my dog. Please send the cops immediately!

She admitted that she "reacted emotionally and made false assumptions about his intentions." And ". I've come to realize especially today that I think of [the police] as a protection agency, and unfortunately, this has caused me to realize that there are so many people in this country that don't have that luxury,"

The lawsuit alleged that Amy Cooper was "characterized as a privileged white female 'Karen'" . And "Even a perfunctory investigation would have shown that Plaintiff did not shout at Christian Cooper or call the police from Central Park on May 25, 2020 because she was a racist."

Forget the irony tag. My head exploded.

It's not an outrageous case. She has a valid complaint that they didn't investigate it or know what happened before the recording started. Essentially the internet declared this an outrage and she lost her job and that is the end of the story. Maybe before the camera started rolling everything was a lot more heated and scary but we don't know because all we ever see of these incidents is what happens after someone decides to record it.

It's always somebody else's fault, says the party of personal responsibility.
 
2021-05-27 8:53:33 AM  
I could easily argue that you were fired because you were captured on camera lying and making false accusations and that a liar who makes false accusations is good reason to fire you from a corporate finance job.  You're a risk to both the company and your coworkers, but especially your supervisor.  I'd be terrified to hire someone who makes known fraudulent accusations.

They don't have to investigate.  They can fire her because she farted in the elevator.  They can fire her for any non-protected reason.  "Being a coont" is not protected.

But don't you see?  We have to give her the benefit of the doubt - a benefit that we in no way have to extend to him.

This makes perfect sense if you assume that she was justified in everything that she did for some reason that is totally not related to assumptions about behavior based on race.

None of that explains the alleged thesis of her tort.
She doesn't actually seem to have one. Nobody was under any obligation to "investigate" anything. her actions are a matter of record, and the very legitimate basis for her former employer's quite reasonable actions.
In the unlikely event this piece of frivolous and vexatious litigation sees a courtroom, I see it having little chance of succeeding.
What jury would be sympathetic to her position?
They aren't going to be trying this in Oxford Mississippi.
But I imagine her intention is to try to get a settlement out of them for going away.
Who knows - they might, but under these circumstances, I doubt it.
I'll be really surprised if she recovers anything here.

Man, I actually felt sorry for her, because her life fell apart so hard and so fast. Even the black dude in the recording thought she'd suffered enough.

She committed fraud for spite.  There was no real personal gain to her.  It wasn't something she did under duress or for money.  She only did it to try and fark up someone's life - because that someone had the gall to tell her that the rules applied to her.  She's done worse and she will do worse in the future.  This wasn't a one-off.  People don't just stumble into fraud for spite.  They practice it.  Her life was and will be a series of frauds.

Ah. The "All racism is explained by Jussie Smollet" argument - always a sign of a brilliant mind.
Protip: Don't cite exceptions that prove the rule.
When your whole "fake racism"  argument revolves around a single incident in a nation of 330 million people - it might be a pretty weak argument.
And other people might notice how weak it is.

She was an investment banker. While Fraud has specific legal meaning, I would be willing to bet a house that many of her clients have lost huge sums of money "investing" in things she recommended.

This. I had a boss once who was a "Ain't nobody gonna tell me what to do" conservative. Now I never saw him once be racist or the like, and he was an excellent boss. But when the company we worked for was bought by a larger company with a real HR department, they asked everyone to sign the company nondiscrimination statement, and he refused, based on some "Mah rights!" argument. Refused multiple times.

They fired him. Which was a big loss, but even if he isn't racist or actively discriminating, the fact that he refused - repeatedly - in front of witnesses - to sign a form saying he wouldn't discriminate and yet was kept on would be fodder in any future lawsuit against the company, even if it was a BS lawsuit.

Yes, and Donald Trump took out a full page ad in The New York Times calling for the "central park five" to be executed for a crime that they Didn't commit.
The 5 Innocents weren't executed, but they served 6 to 12 years in prison, each, for a crime they had nothing to do with.

Whites accuse blacks Far more often than the other way around. And even if those accusations are groundless, blacks often pay with their lives. When a black person accuses a white person, their case better be Air Tight - because they Will be punished for accusing their betters. And that's why Smollett's life was ruined, and Trump went on to become President.

There is NO data regarding what happened before the video began. That is public fact. Her claim must, in a just society, be given as much weight as his.

You are making a blatant assumption based on sex and race here, the same actions you accuse her of.

The cynic in me suspects that this is the entire purpose of the lawsuit.  It gets her name in the news and a chance at some publicity where she simultaneously gets to push for the redemption story, while also subtly claiming to be a victim of "cancel culture", or "woke Twitter mobs", or something.

Thing is, I'll bet it works.  Her previous employer was a big-time Wall Street investment firm.  Surely there's somebody in that world willing to hire her, if only out of spite to own the libs.
