You would think that these people never learn.
A New York woman, Miya Ponsetto, accused a young 14-year-old of stealing at that Arlo Hotel in Soho, New York. It just happened that the young man was the son of Jazz musician Keyon Harrold.
The woman loudly accused the young man of theft over a cell phone. These types of actions are almost mainstream now, especially when you think of Amy “Central Park Karen” Cooper and Jennifer “BBQ Becky” Schulte. Both incidents show the ugly side of Americans who want to get people in trouble and feel like acting out as if their lives are in danger, most times because of skin color.
From the NY Post:
Miya Ponsetto, 22, was identified by NYPD sources as the woman caught on camera falsely accusing the 14-year-old son of jazz trumpeter Keyon Harrold of stealing her iPhone.
Photos posted online with Ponsetto’s name also appear to match the young woman who melted down in the lobby of the Arlo Hotel in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood and tackled Keyon Harrold Jr. in a vestibule.
Public records show there’s only one person with the name Miya Ponsetto in the US. That person is 22 and has a last known address in Sun Valley, Calif.
The @NYPDnews is requesting the public’s assistance locating the suspect in this video.
Anyone with information in regard to the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS(8477) or DM @NYPDTips

This woman has a history of problems that some may even think she is mentally unstable. On February 28, the Daily Mail reported court records logged that Ponsetto was arrested in Beverly Hills for public intoxication on Feb. 28. On May 28, she was arrested for drunken driving in Los Angeles near Calabasas.
According to another report, Ponsetto has been booked on four misdemeanor counts, including driving under the influence of alcohol, one for driving with a suspended license, and one for unlawful use of a driver’s license.
New York Mayor called the act racism. I don’t know if that was the issue, but it has those optics.
We went through this in 2020; let’s try to be better in 2021. How many of you agree?
