#CornerstoneCaroline is doing the most in New York.

The infamous Brooklyn borough woman, Teresa Klein, falsely accused a 9-year-old Black boy of grabbing her buttocks while she was in line last week to purchase frivolous items.

Now that surveillance cameras have proven her mindless, hysterical claims of being sexually assaulted by the boy wrong, Klein wants to charge the mother of the boy after that pre-teen’s mom stood up for him, replete with strong language and finger pointing, reports WFTV news.

Perhaps Klein should be busying herself with finding legal counsel because she reportedly told the mother of the 9-year-old that she was a police officer, which is not true, and is a violation of the law.

As rolling out previously reported, video of Klein thinking that the boy fondled her butt went viral. However, the little boy’s book bag brushed up against her inside the Sahara Deli Market as she waited at the front counter.

She started popping off, yelling things in the direction of the boy. The boy’s mother returned and immediately confronted the woman with what appears to be a severe rebuking (the video’s sound was taken out).

After allegedly calling the cops, and as the kids wailed in horror, Klein was forced to apologize when video clearly vindicates the little boy of her accusations.

“I was wrong,” Klein admitted, according to the television station. “Young man, I don’t know your name, but I’m sorry.”

Klein denies she said she was a cop, though it was allegedly captured on video.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams is demanding that the NYPD open up a probe on Klein and determine whether she broke the law by impersonating a cop. He also compared the incident to a “modern-day Emmett Till moment.”

Emmett Till was a 14-year-old Black boy who was mutilated and murdered in 1955 after he was also falsely accused of offending a white woman in her family’s grocery store.

Activists in the community have since started a campaign to protect the little boy and to dissuade white people from calling authorities concerning extremely trivial matters.

Also, a GoFundMe page has been started for the little boy, who was traumatized by the ordeal and subsequent national attention.
