I thought filing a false report was already a crime.

Which makes it that much worse that his name is now being dragged by twitter observers.

He didn't have to say anything, did he? What was there to gain by doing that? Again, words have consequences, his is that he has to not search his name on twitter for a couple of days, boo hoo.

My word he's just a guy caught up in a viral video.  He was asked a question and answered it, he didn't go through some kind of cost/benefit analysis before giving that quote. 

And you think the twitter Karens can't stir up enough controversy to make a guy like Christian unemployable solely because he's now controversial?  It's not just his feelings at stake.

Stop man, people are disagreeing his thought process, no one is going after him, this is ridiculous.

It is and that's the point people are making about the bird watcher. The proposed CAREN act in San Francisco takes this a step farther because often these calls to the cops don't actually lead to a report being filed.

They should change their name to the Power Rangers. Have 9 different colored uniforms on the field at all times (would probably have to create a couple of new rangers to do this) and alter the batting helmets to look more authentic.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

It’s really not too hard if you consider the green and white rangers as two different rangers. That gives you 7 of the original rangers.


What about the other two you ask? Alpha 5 and zordon of course. What a stupid question lmao.

It's pretty obvious this dude is a stupid eff.  What kind of response is "I don't know what color are you?"  as an answer to the obvious question "Are you following me because I'm black?".

How the hell don't we have a master Karen thread? Anyway

That guy was put in such a crummy situation.  Sounds like he just wanted to go out and watch some birds, and then he was thrust into this cultural flashpoint that he never asked for.

I ain't mad at him, he can feel however he wants to feel but his opinion on whether or not she should be charged for this crime is as valid as mine or dax's.
True.  His willingness to cooperate though is up to him.

Good thing is the prosecutors won't need his cooperation.

Wonder how Christian Cooper feels now, actually I still don't give a eff. This woman is a threat to the public, and there should be sharp legal consequences to deter this crap. Using harsh sentences as a so called deterrent has been used for generations, no need to suddenly reverse course now.

Wonder how Christian Cooper feels now

He's got it all figured out.

Quote
In an interview on Wednesday, Mr. Cooper declined to answer specific questions about the second 911 call or about Ms. Cooper’s potential plea deal. For him, the encounter in Central Park is “not about Amy Cooper,” but about a larger societal problem, he said.

“My response is very simple: we have to make sure we don’t get distracted,” Mr. Cooper said. “We have a very important goal — and we have to stay focused on it — which is reforming policing, getting systemic change to the structural racism in our society.”

She’s literally going through the justice system right now. How are you seriously pissed at the victim?

You think I'm pissed at the dude because I pointed out that his statement is a false equivalency? Forget about me, what's your angle here?

I’ve got no angle. You just seem to upset at the guy and I’m not sure why. Your last two posts were about not caring what he has to say and that he’s drawing false equivalences.

Well I'm not upset and it isn't the least bit controversial that someone could have an opinion about this woman and still want to end systemic racism. The two things have nothing to do with each other. It's like someone asking him whether he likes chunky or creamy peanut butter and he responds "I'd rather we focus on eliminating childhood hunger." Like 75% of the posts on this board are dedicated to making fun of our holding someone account for saying something stupid, it's weird that you're choosing this to draw a line.

This dude keeps weighing in publicly to literally avoid the question he's being.asked because his entire world, his job, his hobby, his schooling, and probably his personal relationships are surrounded by people who more identify with her than with him and being the one black guy in the group and that black guy throwing a well heeled white woman under the bus to advance a greater cause puts him in a very bad spot. You definitely need to trust me on this one.

What he's doing is meant to make people like you, who are in his life, comfortable, it's why you're working so hard to cape up for this cornball.

Just came to post this and it's definitely racist. That dude definitely knows how to say Kamala's name, he's served on committees with her. He knew he'd get a pop for mispronouncing her name, a sad, but accurate commentary on maga.

Also we haven't discussed the panties that the trump staff has handed out as masks this week.
