The news is out: [The “Soho Karen”, who police said assaulted a Black teen she falsely accused of taking her cell phone in a New York City hotel on Sunday, has been identified.
NYPD sources told the New York Post that the suspect is 22-year-old Miya Ponsetto.
Surveillance footage of the incident released on Wednesday showed the woman tackling 14-year-old Keyon Harrold Jr to the ground. The teenager, who is Black, is the son of jazz trumpeter Keyon Harrold.
The elder Mr Harrold shared his own video of the incident, which took place in the Arlo Hotel in Manhattan, to Instagram. The clip has since been viewed almost three million times.]
After the criminal charges, Miya Ponsetto should be sued in civil court. That’s the only way to stop these heifers.
