‘I don’t forgive this woman, and she needs help’: Child wrongly accused of grabbing ‘Cornerstore Caroline’ speaks out with family

With tears streaming down his cheeks, a 9-year-old black child spoke out at a community meeting in New York about being wrongly accused of grabbing a white woman’s backside in a corner store — an incident disproved by security-camera footage.

With his mother standing beside him, Jeremiah Hervey delivered a simple message at the community meeting: “Friendship is really the key.”

Jeremiah’s emotional response came six days after Teresa Klein called the police and claimed the boy had grabbed her butt in a Brooklyn corner store Wednesday.
