Despite Amy Cooper‘s highly publicized attempt to ensure harm came the way of Christian Cooper when she called the police to file a false report of his intent to harass her (as we reported here), he is doing everything he can to ensure she doesn’t suffer the fate she once wished for him.
Over a month after going on a media blitz to defend her and publicly accept her apology (as seen here), Christian – after learning Amy is set to be prosecuted for the crime – is now going on record to announce he will not cooperate with law officials’ investigation of the incident.
Taking to press recently, Christian revealed his belief that prosecution is too much punishment for the crime for the woman dubbed #CentralParkKaren by social media users.
“On the one hand, she’s already paid a steep price,” Cooper, a Manhattan resident and member of the New York City Audubon Society, told the New York Times Tuesday (July 7) about Amy Cooper, who was publicly shamed and lost her job after the May 25 racist rant was posted online. “That’s not enough of a deterrent to others? Bringing her more misery just seems like piling on.”
“So if the DA feels the need to pursue charges, he should pursue charges. But he can do that without me,” he added.
