In an interview with NBC New York, the woman apologized for her behavior. "I sincerely and humbly apologize to everyone, especially to that man, his family," the woman, identified as Amy Cooper, told the station. She also addresses the problematic aspects of her being a white woman calling the police on a black man.
"When I think about the police, I'm such a blessed person. 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," she said.
