  • Officer Who Didn’t Step In When Woman In Puerto Rico Shirt Was Harassed Resigns

A Chicago man charged with a felony hate crime after a video went viral showing him scolding a woman for wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with a Puerto Rican flag will return to court on August 1 after his release on bond, authorities said on Friday. After the video went viral, authorities began investigating the cop who stood nearby and failed to act as the incident occurred (he has since resigned), and now, the man at the center of the controversy has also received his comeuppance.

The Cook County State's Attorney's Office says 62-year-old Trybus is now charged with two felony counts of committing a hate crime.

Trybus was later charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

Forest Preserve District Police Chief Kelvin Pope said Connor "should've stepped in, and he should've done something". Because of the Puerto Rican flag shirt Irizarry is wearing, the man in the video asks if she is a USA citizen and says "you're not going to change us, you know that?" and "the world is not going to change the United States of America".

Cook County Commissioner Jesús "Chuy" García had called for hate crimes charges against Trybus. "It's still pretty surreal", Irizarry said, speaking Friday at her first press conference since the June 14 incident. "It was threatening and menacing and obviously full of racial ethnic hatred".

A female officer asks to see his ID and can be heard telling him that he's intoxicated, to which he replies, "Well that's your judgment". 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".

Tamara Cummings, general counsel for the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police Labor Council said about the deplorable incident: "The video does not look good, but anybody who is a football fan knows that the video does not tell the whole story". She asks a park police officer to help, saying, "I am renting this area and he's harassing me about the shirt that I'm wearing".

"I wonder where they get such an idea?"

Irizarry was given a refund on the money she had paid for a permit to host an event at the park. The officer is seen walking away.

The officer "needs to be reprimanded because my life was put at risk", Irizarry said.

In the wake of the incident, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle offered the woman an apology and took the unusual step of calling Ricardo Rossello, the governor of Puerto Rico.
