CHICAGO — A park police officer in Chicago has been assigned to desk duty while officials investigate his response to a woman who said she was being harassed for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag.
The woman complained that a man at Caldwell Woods was questioning her citizenship and telling her she shouldn’t be wearing the shirt. Puerto Rico is a U.S. commonwealth. Video of the June 14 incident shows the officer didn’t respond.
“You are not going to change us. You know that,” the man says in the video.
She responds that she’s just at the park for a birthday party.
“The world is not going to change the United States of America. Period,” he continues. “You should not be wearing that in the United States of America.”
Then he gets in the woman’s face, demanding to know if she’s a citizen. When she says yes, he doesn’t believe her.
She asks him to leave her alone and asks for an officer’s help who is nearby but he does not intervene.
‘Is she an American citizen?” he then asks the officer. “Why is she wearing that s—?”
More officers eventually arrived and arrested the man, who was described as drunk.
Caldwell Woods is part of the Forest Preserves of Cook County. The agency tweeted Monday that an investigation of the officer is ongoing. It says all visitors should feel safe.
Ricardo Rossello, the governor of Puerto Rico, wants the officer fired.

It's funny reading whiny comments from fascist supporters who have no problem when one of their Soros funded shit-stained ilk gets in people's faces.

You're claiming that the drunk moron with a poor sense of geography was Soros funded?

Of course not. Don't be silly. I'm talking about Hoid's red fascist buddies. You know, garbage like antifa who, oddly enough, engage in fascist tactics and promote fascism.

He has no problem with someone wearing a Trump hat or shirt being physically assaulted by some Soros funded meathead, but feels the need to make a big deal out of some drunk idiot bitching at a woman and getting in her face for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag on it.

Neither is acceptable behaviour but partisan dickweeds in both sides of the spectrum are only too happy to point out the transgressions on the other side while ignoring the transgressions of their own side. Or justifying them.

Oh, right. Them.

Oh, yeah. Put an antifa SFB and a Unite the Right marcher in front of me, and I'll just give thanks for repeating firearms.

Well, to be fair, the failure to comprehend that Puerto Rico is part of the U.S. does add some comic value.

Again, antifa Trump hate is partisan. Not realizing Puerto Rico is part of the U.S. is racist assbaggery with the extra zest of complete cluelessness.

Probably voted for Trump. Obviously the idiot had no idea Puerto Ricans are American citizens.

Man charged with hate crime over vile Puerto Rican shirt incident

CHICAGO — A man who can be seen on a video chastising a woman at a Chicago forest preserve for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag on it has been charged with committing a hate crime, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office announced Thursday.
Timothy Trybus, 62, of Des Plaines now is charged with two felony counts of committing a hate crime in addition to misdemeanour counts of assault and disorderly conduct he already faced.
In the video posted on social media and widely viewed, a man later identified by authorities as Trybus can be seen berating the woman on June 14 at Caldwell Woods. When the woman complains to a Cook County Forest Preserves officer that the man is harassing her and questioning her citizenship, the officer doesn’t respond. Puerto Rico is a U.S. commonwealth.
The officer was put on desk duty while officials investigated. He resigned this week.

In the wake of the incident, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle offered her apology to the woman and took the unusual step of calling Ricardo Rossello, the governor of Puerto Rico. Rossello wanted the officer fired.
Meanwhile, the Forest Preserves issued its own apology for what happened.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Trybus has an attorney to comment on his behalf.
In the video, Trybus can be seen approaching the woman and pointing at her shirt as he berates her.
“You should not be wearing that in the United States of America,” he tells her. He also questions her about whether she was an American citizen.
The woman, who apparently is the one recording the encounter, can be heard talking but she doesn’t appear on camera. She asks the officer for help, saying the man is making her feel uncomfortable.
Trybus is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.

He will get nothing because he was loaded and being loaded could not be held responsible for what he said.

'Extremely surreal': Woman harassed for wearing Puerto Rican shirt speaks out

CHICAGO — A woman shown on a video being confronted by a man because she was wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the Puerto Rican flag said Friday that the only action a park officer took to defuse the situation was to tell her cousin who’d stepped in to protect her to calm down.
Speaking at a news conference surrounded by leaders of Chicago’s Puerto Rican community, Mia Irizarry recounted the June 14 incident that received national attention after release of the video. Hate crime charges have been filed against 62-year-old Timothy Trybus, and Chicago forest preserve officer Patrick Connor has resigned.
“It was extremely surreal to think that someone whose job is to protect and serve could just completely walk away…” she said at a park in a Chicago neighbourhood with a large Puerto Rican population, in her first public comments about the incident. “If I hadn’t recorded it I am pretty sure (the incident) would not have ended with my safety.”
Irizarry, who was in the Chicago’s Caldwell Woods Forest Preserve when she was confronted by Trybus, recounted the feeling of helplessness she felt after Trybus asked if the flag on the shirt was that of Texas and responded that it was the flag of Puerto Rico.

Trybus scolded her, saying: “You should not be wearing that in the United States of America,” and questioned her about whether she was an American citizen. Connor appeared to stand quietly several feet away. She said that “just encouraged (Trybus) to be more aggressive. So I was scared.”
Puerto Rican citizens automatically have U.S. citizenship.
She said she remains “severely disappointed” that Connor quit without publicly explaining his decision not to come to her aid.
“I will never get to hear from this man, this protector, his reasoning for why my safety, no, my life, had such little value to him,” she said, adding that she grateful that he no longer has a job where he might treat other like her.
A Chicago alderman and a state senator of Puerto Rican descent said the fallout from the incident is not over. State Senator Omar Aquino urged Irizarry to sue the officer, reminding her that he pushed through legislation that allows her to “sue someone for a hate crime.”
Alderman Roberto Maldonado, wearing a t-shirt with a flag of Puerto Rico on it, urged Chicago residents to wear similar shirts on July 20 to protest her treatment.

Trybus appeared in court Friday on charges of a hate crime, assault and disorderly conduct. His attorney, David Goldman, characterized his client’s behaviour toward Irizarry as “obnoxious,” but attributed it to a combination of alcohol and pain pills after having six teeth removed the day before.
The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office said that Judge Earl Hoffenberg ordered Trybus released on his promise to appear in court. He also ordered him placed on electronic home monitoring, to undergo alcohol assessment, and prohibited him from having any contact with Irizarry or any witnesses in the case or set foot on forest preserve property.
He is scheduled to return to court Aug. 1.

I'm not sure she's white so is she really entitled to protection?

Yeah, that is kind of funny, in a sad, pathetic way.
