I first saw this video on Twitter and rarely do I see something that simultaneously makes me so angry and so sad. You just have to watch this video to believe it. A white American woman who called the police after a black man asked her to put her dog on a leash in New York City has been suspended from her job with an investment firm. The man, described as an "avid birder", was concerned the dog could endanger wildlife in Central Park. The rules for the wooded area of the park, which is called the Ramble, state that dogs should be on a leash. "I'm going to tell them [police] there's an African-American man threatening my life," she told him. Had the man not recorded the interaction there was a real risk that armed police could have shot him based on her lies.
