From the New York Times news section:

Amy Cooper Faces Charges After Calling Police on Black Bird Watcher

Ms. Cooper was captured on video calling the police after Christian Cooper asked her to keep her dog on a leash in Central Park.

By Jan Ransom, July 6, 2020

A white woman who called the police and falsely accused a Black man of threatening her life

Falsely? The gay black male Karen made a bizarre and not surprisingly frightening threat against the white woman: “Listen, if you are going to do what you want, I am going to do what I want, but you won’t like it.”

Knowing that he is a gay birdwatcher with an expensive education, we can now say for sure that he wasn’t a rapist-murderer on the prowl for women in Central Park’s woods. But how was the woman he was threatening supposed to know that?

after he asked her to put her dog on a leash in Central Park faces a criminal charge, the Manhattan district attorney said on Monday.

Amy Cooper, the woman in the park encounter — which was recorded on video, touching off intense discussions about false police reports made by white people about Black people — will be charged with filing a false report, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.

“Today our office initiated a prosecution of Amy Cooper for falsely reporting an incident in the third degree,” Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the district attorney, said. “We are strongly committed to holding perpetrators of this conduct accountable.”

The episode occurred on Memorial Day. Ms. Cooper, who had been walking with her dog, encountered Christian Cooper, an avid bird watcher, in the Ramble, a semi-wild part of the park where dogs must be leashed.

Mr. Cooper asked Ms. Cooper, who is not related to him, to leash her dog, he said. When she refused, he said, he tried to lure the dog with treats in hopes of compelling her to restrain her pet.

That’s pretty weird. The black Cooper’s behavior carrying around dog treats to do something or other to other people’s dogs reminds me of Tom Lehrer’s song Poisoning Pigeons in the Park.

The encounter turned ugly when Ms. Cooper told Mr. Cooper that she was calling the police and planned to tell them that an African-American man was threatening her life.

As I explained back in 2018 when the War on Becky/Karen first got geared up:

Our ability to think statistically about the trade-off between Type I and Type II errors seems to go on the fritz when race is involved. When the participants are all white, everybody more or less intuits that if you want the cops to question fewer innocent people (fewer Type I errors), you’ll have to put up with more guilty ones committing more crimes (more Type II errors), and vice versa.

But thinking statistically is hard. The distinction between Type I and Type II errors was only invented by Jerzy Neyman and Egon Pearson between the Wars. (And we still need a better mnemonic name than Type I/Type II.)

It’s much easier instead merely to automatically castigate the people your culture designates as vile and deserving of abuse, which in 21st-century America is increasingly the white race.

  1. These stories are always based on a video that starts halfway through the encounter and the aggrieved negro is the one who provides context. We’re just supposed to take the word of the negro for what happened before phones were out and it always turns out to be unsubstantiated bullshit meant to legitimize black fragility.

    The problem with going forward with this is the law doesn’t presume punishment via Youtube and twitter. The woman has lost her job, as well as future prospects beyond midnight shifts at 7-11. She apparently lost her dog, that was a rescue dog in the first place. The “victim” has already stated he’s not interested in ruining her.

    So… why do it? To further destabilize an unstable woman? For what purpose? To create enough negative circumstances in her life so that killing herself becomes a reasonable consideration for her?

    I’ve found you can’t convince someone to be better by acting worse. That strategy always turns into a tragic shitshow.

    I know this country has become fractured as fuck, but going from memory, letting her off the hook with the ass-kicking she’s already received would be the American thing to do, going from back when it was generally agreed upon that we were in a country we wanted to be in.

    I immediately thought of Tawana Brawley, who made a very serious false police report accusing police officers of rape. She was never charged with a crime. Unz readers are aware of many other false rape accusations that never result in the lying accuser being charged with a crime.
    And this woman wasn’t lying – whether she was being threatened is certainly open to interpretation.

    As with Philando Castile, the problem wasn’t profiling, but insufficient profiling. She was hung up on black stereotypes, while totally ignoring færie and birdwatcher stereotypes.

    I went through this as a teen. I passed driver’s ed within weeks of my 16th birthday. But I was so put off by the jacked-up insurance rates that I put off taking the state’s test for eight years, when the rates finally came down to earth.

    I understood fully well at the time that male drivers were statistically more likely to have an accident. But I was way on the far end of the caution curve, possibly safer than a majority of girls. Couldn’t they discriminate a little further and give me a break?

    So I could steer 327′ cutters in the North Atlantic, and 180′ ones through busy, convoluted New York Harbor. But I can’t be trusted to drive in my small hometown?

I could take pleasure in figuring that the “Karens” of Manhattan are nearly all neurotic woke liberal Democrats, but this sort of thing will likely spread. It’s not like mainstream Republicans are a stone wall of resistance.

    I’ve thought the breakup of the country was inevitable for some time. But I think, given the population mix in the Southern States, there isn’t a critical mass to secede. The result will be more like Russia after the defeat of the whites, than the exConfederate states during Reconstruction. When that guy says he wants to put his boot on your neck, take him at his word.

  27. The gist I’m getting from woke commenters around the web is that Ms. Cooper should go to prison for years over this. The charge: attempted murder. (At which point they trot out the completely sensible and totally not insane argument that cops kill black men for sport; therefore, summoning cops = accessory to murder)

    These folks keep this up, they’re gonna lose the educated liberal white women vote. Say what you will about liberal white women, they do take their personal safety rather seriously.

    Well, perhaps you can take a little solace in that many of them are probably just virtue signaling hypocrites. They don’t think she should actually be punished; they’re just in competition to show how they’re the most anti-racistest of them all.

    So they might not be dumb and deluded per se, and they are instead sniveling, unprincipled keyboard warriors who would actually do the same thing she did.

    As with Philando Castile, the problem wasn’t profiling, but insufficient profiling.

    I get your point RC. But this is stretching. The problem in the Castile case was simply stupid incompetent Hispanic cop–Jeronimo Yanez. There was zero reason for Castile to have been shot.

    In contrast, however one might critique the cops in the Michael Brown and Floyd George–precious be his name–cases–Darren Wilson for getting out of the car, instead of waiting for backup; Derek Chauvin for the neck hold–basically those guys were dealing with big black assholes trying to get killed. How the heck was Chauvin supposed to know that Saint Floyd had shot up a potentially lethal dose of fentanyl and had heart issues–and wasn’t just faking it?

    In contrast, this idiot Yanez just blasted Castile cause he panicked. Not remotely close to Mohamed Noor level affirmative action reckless stupidity … but still ridiculous.

  32. Once upon a time, I lived right off Central Park West on a street very close to the Ramble. One feature of this part of the park are a number of narrow footpaths overgrown with brush. These were known at the time to be frequented by gay gents looking for anonymous sexual encounters. I have no idea if the custom still persists there in Year 1 of the Corona Experiment.

    From the coverage I’ve seen of Ms. Cooper, she probably confined herself to an adjoining clearing with her unleashed little pooch. She just had the bad luck to run into Mr. Cooper, who was probably going to explore the footpaths and his ornithological interests.

    Castile, like Floyd, was on controlled substances at the time, in violation of his carry license. (Which is why local gun rights groups, while initially sympathetic, dropped his case like a hot potato. “What!? You think drug addicts should be armed!!??”)

    So the officer was justified in stopping, searching, etc. Shooting was extreme. It was like a Lusitania-on-land.

    The Noor incident is instructive in yet another way. Australian women frighten me, too. (It’s the accent, which is not so scary in men.)

    I’ve known a lot of Somali women, and they remind me of Australians– loud and vigorous, but, unlike American women, more matey than hostile. But the race and culture difference overwhelmed any similarities in their respective womenfolk, just as Miss Cooper didn’t recognize a fellow uppity yuppy in Mr Cooper.

    When teens get into high school clique fights, as blacks and Mexicans in L.A. or Somalis and German Catholics in St Cloud, I take a step back and refuse to blame either side. It’s the fool adults that pitted them together who are at fault.

Of course, they don’t. Blacks, especially black women, hate them as much as they hate White men, maybe more – for a variety of reasons.

    I live in the land of Karens and Beckys, and you’ve never seen such a collection of pampered, delusional people. Protected in their safe, very White suburbs, they can’t shut up about racism and systemic injustice and BLM. I – and many other White men – are sick of it. Let’s bring the diversity to their doorstep. Give them diversity good and hard.

    God help me, I sound a bit like Whiskey (outside of the Zionism), but the Karens and Beckys are the last White hold-outs.

    The frequency of surname Cooper is 1:1,000 in the US according to forebears.io so the chance of two Coops meeting randomly is (1000^2) =1-in-1,000,000 Ceteris paribus.

    Most meetings are not hostile, say 10:1 chance at best so a hostile Cooper-Cooper meeting is more like a 1-in-10 million chance.

    There are less than 10 million inhabitants of NYC so I’d maintain this is very unusual and unexpected.

    Yes! Vance Jr. was Morgenthau’s top ADA towards the end.

    Morgenthau was a racist, anti-Semitic monster. ‘But he was white and a Jew!’

    He was an aristocratic, German Jew. The only thing worse than a German, is a German Jew. (The Stixes were German Jews, and I’m part Nazi, er, German Jew.)

    Morgenthau was the ringleader of a criminal conspiracy to violate the civil rights of, engage in a malicious prosecution of, and suborn perjury against Bernhard Goetz, a working-class Jew. Although Goetz did “only” eight months in prison, I get the imprison that he came out a broken man.

    Morgenthau then gave his blessing to the Central Park Five Hoax, although not even Morgenthau would go so far as to assert that the police had coerced the five convicted attackers to confess to their crimes. (He was about 83 at the time, and was, I believe, obituary-shopping.) He denied that charge. So compared to prosecutors today, Morgenthau was a moral paragon!

    Like Morgenthau, Vance Jr. is fond of violent, racist blacks. Early in his tenure, when faced with a racist, black riot and hate crimes at the New York Auto Show, he announced that he was going to come down like a ton of bricks on the felons, but instead he waited it out, and swept the whole thing under the rug, just like his predecessor had done with the racist, black, Central Park II riot of June 2000 (during the Puerto Rican Day Parade).

    The irony is that feminists have now spent several decades encouraging women to believe that All Men Are Rapists, and that females walk the earth in fear every day because of the overwhelmingly violent nature of the patriarchy. But for some reason, we are not hearing much from them on this issue. They are afraid to stand up for themselves or any other women in the face of black bullying for fear of social death, which is further evidence that feminism must be, in current parlance, smashed.

    Me and the first definition that popped up on Google disagree with you.

    Karen is a pejorative slang term for an obnoxious, angry, entitled, and often racist middle-aged white woman who uses her privilege to get her way or police other people’s behaviors.

    Saying that a middeaged black queer man cannot identify as a Karen is, of course, racisttransphobic cis normative hate speech, but the real point here is that a Karen is not first and foremost the first person in an argument to call the police. A Karen “uses her privilege to get her way or police people’s behavior’s.” That black dude was a CLASSIC Karen. The white woman was just genuinely scared of a black weirdo who threatened her and her dog in a secluded area of a park.

    “Amy Cooper was abused and then freaked out when she was being taped.”

    She was already terrified by his threats to her and overtures to her dog with a suspicious substance, and freaked out the moment he turned on his cellphone camera, because then she knew her life was over. She was aware of all of the blacks (and in some cases, Whites) who had already destroyed the lives of White women in Chicago, St. Louis, Philly, California, etc. Some of the racist blacks claim, after they’ve destroyed their White victims’ lives, that they don’t seek to harm them.

  84. I read the long loving profile of Mr Cooper in the NYT Sunday magazine. He is a large fit muscular man despite being well into his 50’s He’s been married to his husband since gay marriage was made legal. He is a frequent early morning visitor to the Ramble, a part of New York’s Central park that has been landscaped to appear wild. He is an avid birder. He is known to carry dog treats to lure unleashed dogs away from their owners. Supposedly to discourage their owners from bringing dogs there and scaring off the birds. He admits this in the article saying his practice is controversial among his fellow birders. He carries $2000 Svarovski binoculars given to him as 50th birthday gift by his late father. He is a gay rights activist who has written articles for the Times long before this incident

    The woman in the story seems like a nasty piece of work but I suspect she did genuinely fear the large AA man trying to lure her dog away.

    There’s a lot that doesnt add up here.
    $2000 binoculars?
    Early morning visits to the Ramble while his husband sleeps in??
    Carries dog treats to entice unleashed dogs???

    In the Pacino movie Cruising the gay serial killer found his victims in (among other places) deserted wild sections of Central Park but those encounters were always late at night. Such parks are notorious venues for anonymous gay encounters. Many people remember Wham’s George Michael’s misadventure in an Beverly Hill park bathroom.

    Baltasar Gracián, S.J. (d. 1658) The Pocket Oracle and Art of Prudence (Penguin Classics):

    Don’t offer an apology to someone who hasn’t asked for one. And even if one is asked for, an over-the-top apology is like an admission of guilt. To apologize before it’s necessary is to accuse yourself, and to be bled when healthy is to attract ill health and ill will. An excuse in advance awakens suspicion. Nor should a sensible person reveal their awareness of someone else’s suspicions–this is to go looking for offence. They should try instead to refute these with the honesty of their actions.”

    From the late mathematician Warren Weaver’s book Lady Luck dealing with probability:

    “My next-door neighbor, Mr. George D. Bryson, was making a business trip some years ago from St. Louis to New York. Since this involved weekend travel and he was in no hurry, since he had never been in Louisville, Kentucky, since he was interested in seeing the town, and since his train went through Louisville, he asked the conductor, after he had boarded the train, whether he might have a stopover at Louisville. This was possible, and on arrival at Louisville he inquired at the station for the leading hotel. He accordingly went to the Brown Hotel and registered. And then, just as a lark, he stepped up to the mail desk and asked if there was any mail for him. The girl calmly handed him a letter addressed to “Mr. George D. Bryson, Room 307,” that being the number of the room to which he had just been assigned. It turned out that the preceding resident of Room 307 was another George D. Bryson, who was associated with an insurance company in Montreal but came originally (see the next paragraph) from North Carolina. The two Mr. Brysons eventually met, so each could pinch the other to be sure he was real.

    There is a sequel. My friend George D. Bryson (the New York City—Connecticut one) tells me, “Later I discovered that my father’s father (my grandfather) had gone into the Civil War from a little town in Indiana, just before his son George (my father) was born. When the war was over he was reported missing. Later, he returned to Cincinnati and died there and at that time showed a relative from his hometown a picture of a second family which he said he had in North Carolina where he found himself after the war. It could be that the first-born of that family was also named George, and that just as my father had named me after himself, this other George in North Carolina named his son after himself. That would have made us both grandsons of the same man, but his father illegitimate. Hence, I never explored the possibility with the other George D. Bryson, although I did continue to communicate with him for some years after the coincidence.”

    I feel sure that it’s definitely still Drudge’s site, or at least he still has a major hand in it. For 20 years now I’ve been checking it out often daily and I still very often see there the sort of idiosyncratic articles that he always gravitated to or in some cases perhaps thought his base would like to see – I can’t think of any examples right now except stuff on things like fashion industry figures, or ‘signs of the end times’ – tedious items to me but which he always liked to post. And I can’t articulate it, but I also just recognize the familiar way stories are positioned and which headlines are highlighted in red text, ect.

    I guess Harry Baldwin is implying frustration with the site for no longer being sufficiently pro-Trump. But Drudge was as enthusiastic as anyone for him at first and for a long time. I suspect the style of coverage lately reflects partly Drudge’s disenchantment and disappointment which most supporters feel as well as a desire to convey the reality of the tough circumstances Trump is now facing. It leans right, but it isn’t and never has been a bubble, and it would have little value to me at least if it was. The reality of being in power means a lot of scandals and flak come your way, and Trump has generated plenty for himself as well as now confronting challenges not of his making. I think Drudge’s coverage of Trump simply reflects the disheartening current climate for him, no more and no more less.

    Anyone who says that Gay Harvard Birdwatcher was at risk of arrest, let alone physical harm, if they had has never visited let alone lived in NYC. Wacky lady would have been warned to keep fluffy on a leash and Birdwatcher would have been similarly on notice that he cannot feed other people’s dogs without permission, particularly after issuing veiled threats to their owners.

    There would be a police record of the encounter if either or both didn’t learn their respective lesson.

    That’s called police officers keeping the peace. Particularly in NYC, with 40K well-trained cops, that’s what they do innumerable times every day.

    You’re a sick misogynist if you want to make women fearful of calling the police. If they succeed in the instant case, make no mistake, they will return to seeking punishment for not just women but children for calling the police when they encounter a man in a dress in the women’s bathroom.

    I might be taking “police” as in behaviors too literally.

    In the incident in question, Ms. (Certainly not Mrs.) Cooper elected to ignore the rules with her unleashed dog, acting like an “entitled… white woman who uses her privilege to get her way,” I.e. to violate clearly defined rules because she felt like it. Mr. C., rather than calling the cops on her, asked her to leash her dog. I assume to this point you feel Mr. C is in the right.

    After that, Ms. C has the option of backing off and walking away. That’s what people in the wrong DO when they simply don’t want to admit they’re wrong. She instead approached a larger strange man of another race, which I think Uncautious, almost privileged behavior. After that, he made a statement that we know now wasn’t a threat, but could be perceived as a threat; she then, completely oblivious to the society we live in, says to a rolling camera that she is going to report an African American.

    She has had a jarring impact with reality. Getting fired was too much; I think Mr. C only intended to humiliate, but things took on a life of their own, and he, by reporting the incident as if she was endangering his life by calling the cops on a black man, went too far.

    Sometimes changing the trajectory of a process by 1% in the right time, leads to a 100% different outcome down the line. Let’s hope there’s still time for maneuvers like this.

    In the high school demographic whites are already a minority in the USA. The 60% white thing is fake, due to the many boomers still alive. Once they’re gone, it’s coloreds who will take their place. 15 years from now the US will be 50% white, and in 10 more years–40% white.

    Either this process is managed rationally, or it will lead to a horrifying mix of South Africa and Mexico. Waking up at least some of the Karens and their soy hubbies/admirers can only help.

    I’m with you. The black guy could have handled it better, but he was fully within his rights to request Amy to leash her dog. Having dog treats is not a crime. Luring an unleashed dog is not a crime. Possibly, he was going to hold the dog and call the animal authorities on an unrestrained animal. Amy certainly wouldn’t have liked that, but it involved nothing illegal.

    Does her call to the police qualify as a false report? As I recall, she said she was being threatened, which she was not. So, one would have to conclude she provided false information in the report. But, does that justify charges? I think not. That was simply punishment for calling inconvenience on one of the privileged classes.

    Derek Chauvin and Amy Cooper Are One and The Same
    Bogus allegations waged by white women are just as dangerous as police brutality—and come from the same callous privilege.

    BY CHANDRA THOMAS WHITFIELD
    As anguish and rage exploded on the streets of America and across the globe, I imagined Amy watching the unrest on her flat screen TV, curled up on the sofa of her posh apartment*, smiling smugly; an organic snack in hand. I suspected that she was relieved that the brief fallout she’d faced, including the media attention that purportedly “destroyed” her life, had suddenly become eclipsed by the round-the-clock attention now being given in the wake of Mr. Floyd’s modern-day lynching recorded in all its gore for the world to see.

    The news cycle had moved on, and rightfully so, but I hadn’t. Even as my heart ached for Mr. Floyd and his family, especially his 6-year-old daughter, I found my mind drifting back to Amy. I couldn’t shake the disappointment and anger, that she somehow would get the privilege of slipping back into obscurity, almost completely unchecked for her heinous crime,

    * She was effectively evicted from that apartment. What she is charged with is punishable with imprisonment for 12 months. No small possibility that she will end up doing time.

    That’s right, so he’s definitely getting plenty of the black pill perspective from people he knows personally.

    But I don’t think Drudge himself has soured on Trump nearly as much as she has, or at least he’s being scrupulous in his professional capacity not to let it show on his site. It seems to me he’s still very much doing what he can to position Trump in a positive light whenever it’s halfway plausible to do so or tout his successes to the extent possible without becoming an out-and-out partisan. And he certainly hasn’t wavered in showcasing the failures and glaring hypocrisies of the left.

    I think people on our side just get irritated when they click and see any of the current wave of bad news for new Trump displayed. But that’s the reality of what’s going on now, and Drudge in my view is fair about giving those sorts of items pretty much the prominence and significance they objectively deserve. I want Trump to win too, and of course I’m disheartened by the challenging outlook of late, but I respect Drudge for not insulating his audience from knowledge of the wider and fuller picture.

    And I don’t think it has anything to do with needing to maintain traffic – he’s doing as fine. I think he’s just playing it fairly straight while leaning right as he always has.

  131. I like to use the terms “false negative” and “false positive” as opposed to Type I and Type II.

    We used this term in the Army when running candidates through special forces training. A false negative was someone who would have been a great green beret, but his performance in the Special Forces Qualification Course didn’t reflect that. He had a bad day or was ill during an important event, which affected his performance. Applying this to police work, it would be someone who appeared to be a miscreant based on the police officer’s intuition, but turned out to be an upstanding citizen.

    A false positive was a candidate who was somehow able to keep his act together during qualification and became a green beret, but turned out to have problems. In police work this would be the guy who dresses nice and speaks well, has a conservative haircut and no visible tattoos, but turns out to be a drug dealer.

    The raw silent video taken from the corner camera when Floyd is first arrested and placed up against the wall. Most news channels showing that video cover up the bottom right corner of the screen with their station logo. So you can’t see the second baggie drop.

    But the raw video shows (1) he drops a white baggy near his car when being walked to the curb, and (2) he drops a second white baggy from his left hand when seated against the wall. He then appears to pick the second baggy back up, and keep it in his handcuffed left hand when the proceed to walk him to the police car parked about a block away.

    My suspicion is he somehow was able to swallow the fentanyl in the second baggy when being shoved into the police car and struggled with the rookies. No video of that.

    Chauvin shows up 5-10 minutes later after the rooks can’t handle the gentle giant in the car. Chauvin looks like the senior backup officer called to restore order to an ineffectual arrest and immediately takes charge.

    Is there an activity gayer than bird-watching?

    You’re wrong there. The more surprising adjective before “birdwatcher” is “black”. “Birdwatching” (“birding” is what birders/birdwatchers call it) is like most outdoor activities quintessentially a White thing. Also predominantly male. Back in the sixties and seventies, when I was dragged along with my parents on birding trips, it was well over 90% male. Mostly chemists and engineers (this was in Delaware during the golden years of the DuPont Co.). Probably more like 70 to 80% nowadays. I remember girlfriends accompanying their boyfriends on birding trips while the relationship was fresh. Once they had it secured, the ladies tended to leave their boyfriends/husbands to their crazy outdoor pursuits, which often begin in the early hours well before dawn (owls and rails) and extend well into the afternoon. I don’t recall meeting any gay birders, although I’m sure they exist. Back then they would not have been openly gay, but thinking back I cannot recall any who displayed mannerisms that I learned later to be gay affectations. Most were married. Or divorced (not all wives are willing to allow a husband to spend that much time on such a hobby). Of course, birding in Manhattan is probably atypical.

    The behavior of protected, sacralized groups must never be stigmatized.* Just as any increase in the spread of Wuhan/COVID virus caused by the rioting, looting, violent savages Peaceful Protestors (TM) must be blamed on “systemic racism”, so too any increased transmission caused by public buggering in the bushes must be blamed on “homophobia”.

    Those interested will find below a concise summary of many of the essential positions and policy proposals with regard to homosexuality that I have been articulating for some time.

    [MORE]

    – Buggery (anal penetration) and other forms of typical male homosexual behavior are inordinately disease-promoting and, consequently, inordinately costly to society.

    – All nations should, at a bare minimum, follow the example of Russia in using the Law to protect minors from pernicious “LGBTQ” propaganda and proselytization and recruitment efforts[1].

    – This needs to be coupled with a proactive humane, compassionate, comprehensive prescriptive response to those with homosexual proclivities. The following three options, in order of preference, should be strongly encouraged: (1) attempt to re-orient toward normative heterosexuality (while being fully honest that such an endeavor will not be easy and has no guarantee of success); (2) celibacy; (3) Restrict sexual activity to non-penetrative, non-brutal forms (such as FROT[2] and intercrural intercourse) that are far safer than buggery.

    NOTES:
    [1]Proselytization and recruitment occurs as follows. Steering toward homo those whose sexuality is still fluid; convincing young males with homosexual proclivities that only through submitting themselves to being buggered will they be accepted and fulfilled, and that said act is entirely natural for them– while at the same time assuring them that only through persistent practice, practice, practice (and perhaps the aid of anesthetizing drugs) will the experience become one of pure, ultimate ecstasy. These are but some of the many hideous realities that pro-buggery propagandists (i.e., Big Gay/ The LGBTQ Lobby) carefully obscure from the public.

    [2] Frot is the term coined by Man2Man Alliance founder Bill Weintraub for the phallus-on-phallus act that he advocates as the egalitarian, true form of male homoerotic intercourse. Extensive writings on frot and the larger, dissident view of homoeroticism that surrounds it of can be found– along with highly graphic imagery— at man2manalliance DOT org.

    I disagree that it is trivial. Not at all. Ms. C was willfully violating common rules and was called on it by a fellow citizen of her city. He didn’t first run to the cops or call 911; he confronted her directly, and asked her to comply with standards. A decent person, being told that s/he is violating the standard or the law sets about remedying the situation. Ms. C refused a proper request, meaning that the situation was now going to elevate. She went right for “I’m calling the cops” after it did; it means she has NO understanding of any sort of social control EXCEPT the law.

    If you have to depend entirely on the law to maintain order in your society instead of social suasion and norm following, your society is toast. Mr. C’s New York was a place where people weren’t afraid to call out bad behavior by others, and the people who won’t comply unless the cops get involved are killing that New York, and making it a far less civil place.

    Order in the city is mostly maintained not by police but by ordinary citizens engaged in their business. The police are there for extreme cases. Remove the ordinary people, empty out the city, and no number of police can keep order, as seen by the looting in early June.

    The standard is that the law is dumb and people don’t follow it; like jaywalking, speeding and underage drinking.

    In that part of the park, the Ramble, dogs must be leashed. Presumably because it’s supposed to be wild, and sanctuary for birds who might be hunted or attacked by unleashed dogs. And there’s this:
    https://www.dogsbite.org/dog-bite-statistics.php
    “In the 14-year period of 2005 through 2018, canines killed 471 Americans.” So, about 34 people per year, and I’m betting that most of those dogs were off leash. From 2015-2019, Police killed about 60 unarmed people per year, according to the Washington post, not even a binary order of magnitude greater than the number who died from dog bites.

    Jaywalking always struck me as a dumb law, but my guess is it’s there to prevent drivers who hit people mid-block from being held accountable. “He was jaywalking, so fair game.” A fair trade-off. Speeding isn’t dumb when done to engineering standards, which is just about never; that’s why everyone speeds, and it encourages disrespect for the law. Underage drinking wouldn’t be much of a problem without access to guns and cars; if adults are monitoring it or if it’s done around a family table, no one will bother. In some states, underage people can be served in a restaurant when with parents; one wonders if in loco parentis also counts.

    The leash regulation doesn’t look so dumb, then, overall.

    So… as was established up thread he’s the bigger Karen (for better or for worse).
    Well, no. Privilege literally means “private law,” a law that is not applicable to the public. He asked her to submit to public law and not assume that a private law allowed her to do as she pleased.

    Also, “do x or I’ll do something you won’t like” is the very definition of a threat. Yeah, that’s certainly threatening in context there. Blacks kill about 500 whites annually in the USA, according to US News, so about 250 white women are killed by blacks every year, if the sexes are equally divided. You can work the numbers versus unarmed police shootings and dog bites.

    The whole carrying around dog treats to lure people’s dogs is premeditated assholery and just weird. I guess you could call him a vigilante, which is also illegal and anti-social.
    I think odd better than weird. But he is a New York character we used to see more of. He might have a fear of dogs, and he might know that 34 people die annually from dog bites, so the dog treats might just be there to gain the favor of (illegally) unleashed dogs in the Ramble. More likely, he’s a bit of a prankster, getting people to follow the rules; this one blew up on him, and I think he did not intend for that to happen. I say this because:

    “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 said, adding that greater principles are at stake.

    A Karen would have demanded the law throw the book at an offender.

    It will mean that more and more black men will be able to rape White women with no consequences. It means a return to the Kill a Mockingbird days when it was near impossible to charge and convict a black man of rape.

    All you guys who hate White women need to realize that far more White men are the victims of street crime by blacks than White women.

    Jurisdictions that don’t prosecute blacks for raping White women are the same ones who don’t prosecute blacks for robbing and assaulting White men. She’s charged with hate crime for calling the police. Think about the charges against White men who defend themselves against black robbers. Attempted murder for a few punches.
