An Illinois man who allegedly harassed a woman for wearing a Puerto Rican flag T-shirt in a now-viral video was charged with a felony hate crime on Thursday.
After the Cook County State's Attorney's Office reviewed the video, officials approved the charges against Timothy Trybus, 62, the Chicago Tribune reported. Trybus was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
In the video of the June 14 incident, which has since been widely circulated online, Trybus is heard repeatedly questioning the woman's citizenship and told her she shouldn't be wearing her Puerto Rican flag shirt.
But the officer, Patrick Connor, turns his back and walks towards his patrol auto.
Connor's resignation was "a commonsense decision after his inaction and failure to serve Cook County", Cook County Commissioner Jesus Garcia said, according to The Chicago-Sun Times.
"You should not be wearing that in the United States of America", Trybus said in a video that Irizarry posted on Facebook.
She plans to interview all officers at the scene as well as Irizarry and said the video will be used in future training exercises by the Forest Preserves.
The Forest Preserves of Cook County announced on Twitter that Officer Patrick Connorresigned late Wednesday.
But the officer continues to do nothing or even move closer to Irizzary as the man continues to approach her.
Rosello also called on Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle to take the matter "into her hands".
"All people are welcome in the Forest Preserves of Cook County and no one should feel unsafe while visiting our preserves". The agency tweeted Monday that an investigation of the officer is ongoing.
Ms Irizarry calls on a nearby park police officer for help. "Are you a citizen?"
And anyone who has eyeballs can see how police do not handle encounters with Black and brown people the same as with whites.
The recording, taken by the woman involved, shows a man, identified by the police as Timothy Trybus, demanding to know why she has a Puerto Rican flag shirt on and whether the woman, Mia Irizarry, is a US citizen. The man resumes his abuse, saying: "You're not American".
Later she says: "Officer, I feel entirely uncomfortable, can you remove ... please officer" as the officer is seen walking away from her.
Eventually, the first officer on the scene takes notes of Irizarry's account of the incident and says he was at the scene due to the separate incident, noting she was not being attacked though acknowledging she felt threatened.
Quick aside and history lesson: Puerto Ricans are indeed US citizens.
