It's a good thing Dori Cooperman is rich and white
The 1% behaving badly, and don't they always:
According to the criminal complaint against her, [Dori Cooperman, 41,] had taken a cab from 61st Street and Fifth Avenue to 14th Street and Ninth Avenue and refused to pay the $22.50 fare. Instead, she repeatedly slammed the cab’s passenger door, shattering the glass, the complaint says.
“There’s nothing you can do to me!” cops said she hollered when they arrived at the scene. “Get off me! What are you doing? I’m going to call my father! You don’t know who I am!”
Society blogger Cooperman [is the][/is] daughter of Edwin Cooperman, former chairman of Travelers Bank Group who is known to foot her bills.
Yesterday, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Erika Edwards allowed Cooperman to withdraw her previous misdemeanor plea and replead to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct, a violation.
Of course, if Cooperman had been a black man, and especially a poor black man, she'd already be in jail for the next decade or so.
Two-tier system of justice.
