The white woman dubbed online as a "Karen" after she was seen allegedly attempting to steal a CitiBike from a Black man who had already rented it has been placed on leave by her employer. Video of the encounter went viral after it was shared on Saturday, showing the unidentified woman, wearing a NYC Health & Hospitals uniform, screaming for help while the man attempts to stop her from taking the bike. NYC Health + Hospitals confirmed to The Daily Beast that the woman, who works at Bellevue Hospital, has been placed on leave, pending review, after the “disturbing” video surfaced. It has since been viewed more than 40 million times. “We are aware of the video involving a health care provider off duty and away from the hospital campus. The incident in the video is disturbing,” a spokesperson for NYC Health + Hospitals said. “The provider is currently out on leave and will remain on leave pending a review. As a health system we are committed to providing an environment for our patients and staff that is free from discrimination of any kind.” A DCPI spokesperson told the Post “the NYPD is aware of the video circulating online but nothing was reported.”

The lawyer (of the karen ) responded, before the video was released. My guess, is the lawyer is the hospital lawyer.
he video proves the young men were telling the truth. Therefore, she is going to be fired. She is on some sort of leave. The video also shows that the young men were cooperating with others there. There were other people at the scene. The young men were also speaking calming to others. Something that the crazy karen lawyers lied about.

She's already proved she paid for the bike.
They were trying to steal it from her.
This is like the old "Reverse pickpocket" scam.
Scammer slips a wallet with their id and a few dollars into the pocket of the Mark. Scammer begins screaming that the Mark has stolen from them. Crowd gathers, admonishing, police arrive and search the "robber" Mark. Find the wallet. Then Scammer screams "They stole 50 dollarsfrom me! Where is my $50?"
Police order the Mark to pay the scammer the $50 and then haul the Mark off to the station. Scammer leaves with $50.

UPDATED 5/19: My name is Bob Roe. Late last week, my niece, Sarah Comrie, a Physician Assistant at Bellevue, became embroiled in a much-publicized incident with a Citibike that unfairly painted her as a racist "Karen." The facts have since proven this is a lie, but the damage has been done. In fact, Sarah is a dedicated healthcare worker who is six months pregnant.

I'd like to say I can't believe there are still dumbasses on here insisting that she was stealing the bike herself, but DL is full of that kind of stupid person these days.
She and her attorney provided the receipt that shows her account reserved this bike and got a charge for it, though the charge was $0 because the bike got put back on the stand during the incident before being used. Her receipt matches the number on the bike.
It's very common for people to grab a rental bike from someone who has rented it just after they take it off the stand and run off with it, because they get it for free.
This was a pregnant woman who had just gotten off a 12-hour work shift, there's not much chance she was going to confront a bunch of teen boys larger than her, just to steal a bike.

So the real question is : Why is a 6 month pregnant woman who was on her feet for a 12 hour shift as a Physician Assistant at Bellevue renting a 'CitiBike' to go to her next destination ? That's certainly not the safest mode of transportation on NYC streets, and the pregnant woman must be physically exhausted at that point.
Why didn't she call a Lyft, Uber, etc. or seek some other transportation other than a bike ? It doesn't make any sense.

"she accused the teens of stealing her bike. It is not possible because it is a RENTAL bike, a citi bike. "
You wouldn't want to rent a bike and then have someone else take it any more than you would want to rent a car and then have someone else drive it away.
When you pay to rent something, that property is your responsibility and if someone takes it, not only are you now without a ride, you have all the headache, responsibilities and hassle of figuring out what to do, reporting the crime, contacting your credit card company, hoping you're not stuck with a huge bill if the person decides to trash it etc etc.
If she did indeed rent the bike and was starting to take it from the stand, it was hers in a significant sense, and in that context, her reaction would be understandable. It seems a more likely explanation for what we see on the video, rather than: she finished her shift and then decided to attack and rob a group of five males of a rental bike?!
Or are people here saying that if she paid to rent the bike, and then some guys come along to take it, she should just quietly accept that's what happened and pay for another?

What's important here is her acting all hysterical/fake crying over the incident and trying to get the young men in trouble, even if she did rent the bike.

This was probably a roving group of either con men or pranksters videotaping themselves for SM.
There are now young men filming themselves "pranking" people at the airport accusing them of stealing their luggage. But they're really nasty about it.
Or how about the pranksters pretending to pour gasoline on people's cars and saying they're going to burn their cars. One guy pulled a gun in the merry pranksters. One of the videos showed the gasoline guy chasing someone pretending he was going to dump gasoline on him.
I have predicted increased home invasions for a while now and I saw something like that in the UK where they just come into someone's house with the people right there and act like they live there as a joke and I wouldn't be surprised if it happens here. Of course here they'd get shot so they'd have to be careful what states they did that in.

I see we have a real troll here.
Christian Bird Watcher DID threaten her and her doggie, too. Go read his own SM account where he admits to what he said. LOL You don't ever do that to a female alone in an isolated part of Central Park or anywhere. He knew he was wrong which is why he backed off her in the media and tried to sound all gracious about it. Women who find themselves confronted by men in such situations are advised to do and say anything you can to scare the guy away.
But here it's so obvious what these guys are doing. A guy came into the scene and suggested they lock it and start from scratch and the guys refused. Though it did get relocked. The man pushed against her belly to cover the code on the bike so she couldn't do anything. You can see he keeps his arm extended over her belly covering the code almost the entire time.
These were physically aggressive men trying to rob her or con her out of that bike. Anyone who can't see this has an IQ lower than those who couldn't spot the horse. We'll call this spot-the-thief.
Now even 6 months pregnant women in hospital uniforms are fair game for thugs.

I've heard a few Brit female journalists criticize this trend but I can't recall any mainstream American journalist doing so. Either they're too afraid or they just don't give a fuck. Maybe they think if they're docile and sweet all of the time they will never be victimized. They talk a lot about rape ( which should be discussed) but they never ever want to talk about the larger societal hatred of women that makes sex misconduct possible and accepted. They just want to talk about it in a vacuum. Never will they mention how encouraging women to be silent and docile connect to that culture.

Where's their receipt? Huh? Where's the receipt from these innocent "kids" ? They don't have one. She has 2 -- the one from the initial attempt to leave with the bike she took out, and a second from the bike she rented afterwards. 0.00 proves this because it shows the bike was rented, but never taken anywhere (immediately put back into the dock). I think too many people defending them are unaware of how it works or they wouldn't say she should've just rented another one, or that it wouldn't matter if they had taken it. It would've very much mattered. $1200 loss in fact.

"In reality," you're a fucking drama queen acting like white people everywhere are being persecuted. I don't doubt for a second that hypocritical people like you hear some story about a single Muslim stabbing someone on an entirely different continent and take that opportunity to shit on Muslims everywhere and blame all of them for that individual or if you hear about some Mexican immigrant raping someone, you make it about all Hispanics. You're trying to play a victim when you know god damned well that just because of this bike incident, that doesn't mean other white people have to worry about being blamed and they can still go about their day knowing they won't be blamed for it. You can throw in the countless mass shootings by white people, too, being another thing you know god damned well other white people will not be spit on or tormented over for being white.

And I don't get why, if they were being genuine, they didn't cancel the order and restart the rental? Why keep trying to take it? I know I would've said "fuck it" to her and got a whole new one, instead of sitting there arguing about it. Why instead we they trying to prevent her from cancelling it? That would've solved everyone's problem. Because they were fucking with her for a fucking video. Let's get this YT woman going, like we reasonable and victims, so it can get posted online. Maybe even started as just fucking with her for quick laughs, but when it escalated they were thrilled to catch it on video.
I'll change my mind if they come forward with anything but so far total silence from them. Where's their parents outraged by racism towards their teens? Where's even one of the 5 saying, no, she's making a fraud receipt! I've been looking all week for that and still nothing.
Again, here we are with racism everywhere, but this is the story people want to defend. R234 yeah she was a crazy bitch? She got hers. Most people were against her bs. R235 I fully agree with that and that's why I'm not sitting here taking it for this story though. There's a million instances a day in this country, where innocent people are victims of racism. They are being killed, to harassed, etc. The media and everyone else jumping on this story though, when it's not looking clear cut at all, is foolishness. Stories like these are used against POC to say "see, it's in their heads" when it's not -- but unfortunately there's times when the climate is taken advantage of by bad actors. These 5 young men are most likely bad actors, taking attention away from actual victims.

Whites are treated like individuals. POC are burdened by carrying their entire race. One does something wrong and right away it's "look at how THEY are".

If this woman was falsely accused of being racist, she needs to sue every fucking asshole who did that to her, that does not give anyone the "out" to suddenly magnify the situation and act as though it is happening 24/7 and white people are hiding in shame out of fear of being targeted, because you're not living in "reality." You live in an echo chamber of Elon Musk ass-lickers who engage in hysteria when it comes to the likelihood of being targeted as a group when you're white.
It's the very reason 1/6 happened. You think if it were a single black person or Hispanic or Muslim so much as spitting at a Capitol PO and going to kill MoC, other people of that background wouldn't have been treated as responsible for it? The very reason LE and other agencies didn't take it seriously and white terrorists/nationalists are currently serving in Congress, is because white people aren't collectively treated as "criminals" without actually having committed a crime, but go on and play "persecuted white victim," R230.

Why would the friend of a thief record his crime on video?

The precursor to the "Karen" meme were the stories about obnoxious individual white women who were given such nicknames as Sidewalk Sally, Corner Store Cindy, etc.
Of course, talking about a Shaniqua would be racist but Karen is just fine according to the SJW crowd.
Karen is another example of how the woke use language to twist reality. This is how we ended up with this fantasy story of a 6-month pregnant hospital worker getting off a 12-hour shift and then trying to steal a bicycle from a group of young black men and being a threat to their very lives.

R362, it is hard to tell because Sarah blocked out the time on her receipt, which is odd because even her detractors agree that she probably did log into that bike.
As the video on twitter points out, the young man had just used the bike and was about to use it again. He may not have realized that he was signed out.
Sarah for some reason insisted on taking the bike he was sitting on, even though there were plenty of other bikes available (as can be seen in the original video). It looks like she did sign it out, but the young man did not know it.
Because after all, why would a woman want the bike he was sitting on rather than any of the unoccupied ones waiting for riders.
This is looking less and less like a Karen situation and more an more like a mentally ill woman getting aggressive.

But if she had signed the bike out, isn't it a problem for her to allow him to use it, since she is paying for that bike and also be liable for any damage to it? What could she have done differently? She could have not "gotten aggressive" and then rented another bike but then she would be paying for 2 bikes and also taking on a potential 1200 fee if he damages or does not return the bike rented out to her. Right? Her "aggression" is passive aggressive tears and talk of her fetus. To stand up for herself, she couldn't have become aggressive and actually fought 5 young men.

Hey R365 I'm really just trying to understand her motives, the situational logistics, and the motives of all involved, as this is a curious mystery with high social stakes of cancel culture. I wonder: Maybe it's difficult to unlock a bike (for her) and she wanted a bike already unlocked and thought he was done riding it since he had returned it? Or maybe some of the bikes don't work that well and she saw this one in use, knew it worked well, and thought he was done with it since he had returned it to the docking station, then was perplexed as to why he wanted to keep a bike he had just returned? Maybe a few of the bikes are preferred for reasons only customers know. I don't know, as I've never used these types of bikes. But after reading 365 posts on this thread and the other thread, I'm invested in the mystery.

Here's a theory: Maybe some bikes can be reserved for specific times. Maybe she had this one reserved for after she got off work, and he had been riding it all day before her reservation, with the understanding it was due back at a certain time because it was reserved. So that particular bike he was riding was due back because of her reservation, and he didn't want to return it and switch bikes, though he was forced to by the system. He was unhappy about how the system worked, so the fight started to try to get her to give up her reservation?

R369, if someone behaved with common courtesy and decency, she would not have to defend herself.
Actually, the young man was firm and as courteous as one could expect given the situation. If only Sarah could match his standard.
Like I said, this looks more and more like a mental health issue. The fixation on that one bike that she had to have even though someone was sitting on it and there were others right there. Her bizarre aggression when told to use one of the empty bikes.

Five days ago, before Sarah's lie was exposed, Monique Judge asked all the right questions the The Griot:
She looked directly at that young man then she began screaming as if she were being attacked.
No one was attacking her. No one touched her. In fact, the only physical contact in the video came from Sarah Jane Comrie.
Sarah Jane Comrie touched the young man. She grabbed his phone. Even in the moment when she told him he was touching her “unborn fetus,” it was her leaning into his arm. He did not touch her.
Her lawyer dropped the tidbit that she is six months pregnant, and that turned the narrative into why would a pregnant woman try to take a bike from five Black guys?
Never mind that the same pregnant woman he claims was in such imminent danger could have walked away at any time. Never mind that plenty of people were around, and none of them seemed to think she was in any real type of danger.
What pregnant woman reaches for the telephone of a young man who is supposedly endangering her?
A pregnant woman on her worst behavior, that’s who.
The truth is, no one ruined Sarah Jane Comrie’s reputation for her. She did that herself. Her behavior is evident in that video.
Why would five young Black men attempt to rob a white woman for a Citi Bike in Midtown Manhattan in plain view of everyone? Why would they then stick around and film the interaction?
They filmed the interaction because they sensed that something wasn’t right, and they had the presence of mind to start filming so that what they did could never be called into question.
Her lawyer claims that “one or more” of those young men pushed the bike, with Sarah on it, back into the rack and prevented her from being able to leave.
That could be considered a crime, yet Sarah has not filed any police report, and her lawyer is adamant that they harbor no ill will toward those young men. He says this at the same time when his statement is written in a way that frames them as the aggressors in the situation.
His statement presumably represents what Sarah Jane Comrie told him about the incident because he wasn’t there.
That story is being presented in a statement and sent to media outlets, but not in a court of law, and that is also an important thing to note.
It’s important to note because putting that story out there does not mean that it is true or that this is the exact way things went down.
But again, from her lawyer’s standpoint, that doesn’t matter.
Her lawyer is aware of how this works. He knows that with very little effort on his part, people who are uneducated and lack media literacy will take his version of the narrative and run with it.
Her actions won’t be the topic of discussion; her being the victim will be.
We cannot let that abide.
Sarah Jane Comrie did an awful thing that day, and she, her lawyer, her employer and the people who saw that video know it.
It’s not about the bike or who paid for it.
It’s about what Sarah Jane Comrie did when she realized that young man wasn’t going to give it to her.
Her lawyer claims she paid for the bike, but not once does she say that in the video. The young man she is arguing with repeats multiple times that he paid for it, but she never says that. Instead, she starts screaming for help as if they were trying to murder her.

I looked at the comments on the TikTok and people were asking why she was so hellbent on that bike he was riding. Apparently it was electric (someone said hey those grey ones is rare) and the others weren't.
Also, apparently, if you dock the bike every 30 mins you save money. Every min over that time you get charged more per minute. So he was riding the bike on his route to wherever, docked the bike to save money. And as he was docking she spotted it and wanted it and asked if she could have it. He said no, with the intention of taking it out again. She sat on the bike, scanned the bike in her name and that's why she has the receipt.

If what R382 is the truth, then both of them behaved badly. The young man was attempting to cheat the system to monopolize the best bike and not to pay the price for monopolizing it. He had already had it more than the allotted time. When a pregnant woman asked to use it, he should have let her since his time was up and because an electric bike would be easier for her to ride in her condition and he already had used it longer than he was supposed to. If he was a white man, everyone would call out his behavior as unacceptable and not be blaming her, not matter how fake her tears appear. This is looking very much like reverse racism.

R384 I agree, didn't want to type that out. The reason citibike charges more after 30 mins is so more people have a chance to use the bike. Also, turning this into Racist Karen tries to victimize innocent blacks was way over the line ... But it was also over the line for her to sit her entitled ass on that bike knowing full well he was waiting to scan it again.
That's why I think her tears were real. She DID scan that bike and expected them to concede finally. And when they didn't, she realized oh shit, I went too far and caused a scene and they're going to turn this into a viral video. Or they're going to take off on a bike scanned under my name.
Ultimately, taking a bike that was sitting idle for the express purpose of allowing another customer to take it is not a crime. But doing so knowing he wanted to use it again and while he had his hands ON the bike is extremely entitled and rude, and had she just accepted that they weren't going to give it up, then none of this would have escalated to this point.

The question is after he relinquished the bike, why should he be able to prevent others from using it?
What r382 reported makes perfect sense. I'm sure the electric ones are more popular and scarce. The thirty minute limit is there for a reason.
It's kinda fuzzy and something the company should address. Is the 30 minute limit there to make sure the bike gets charged, or to keep the bikes in rotation?
Apparently they have a day pass, but you still have to dock every 30 minutes.

Sorry, but if the kid REDOCKED the bike it became at the point eligible to be rerented. He was no longer IN POSSESSION of the bike. That sucks for him boo hoo hoo.

R409 I believe R410 answers your question very well. It's a matter of logic and the way the system works. No one is allowed to hold onto a bike after returning it. That's gaming the system. Also, it seems unethical for a young man whose family is on benefits and government assistance to be joyriding all day when he could be working to help support his family, and not using precious resources discounted for those on assistance to help them get to work and school for joyriding in groups of idle teens while tying up the city's resources from people who are working to support themselves and paying full price.

I ride citibikes in Switzerland everyday. It's the same system everywhere. When the bike is docked that its.

I have arrived at stations with people standing by "my bike" trying to unlock it. I explain sorry, it's reserved, that's the system. Unlock it and ride away. they are not always happy.

Maybe they do it differently in switzerland, but that is something I have never seen in the three US cities where I have rented. If someone has the bike in their hands, the assumption is that they will be renting it if they have not done so already.
