Officer Who Appeared to Ignore Puerto Rican Flag Shirt Episode Resigns

Officer resigns after dispute over Puerto Rican shirt Officer Who Didn’t Step In When Woman In Puerto Rico Shirt Was Harassed Resigns

An Illinois police officer being investigated for his inaction as an intoxicated man berated a woman wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag has resigned, the Forest Preserves of Cook County said Wednesday.

A Forest Preserve District spokeswoman released a statement: "Effective today, Officer Patrick Connor no longer serves in the police department of the Forest Preserves of Cook County".

Irizarry said Puerto Rico is part of the United States, and the man approaches her multiple times.

"But that isn't where our work ends", they said in a statement, adding: "We are further addressing aspects of this incident". He is scheduled to appear for a bond hearing Friday.

I showed my official ID as a Member of Congress, to which the officer said, "I don't think so", indicating that she thought my ID was a fake and that I couldn't possibly be a Member of Congress.

PHOTO: The first officer on the scene did not appear to intervene and has since been placed on desk duty.

Irizzary then begins to talk to her Facebook Live viewers, saying: 'As you can see the police are not even, he's not even grabbing him'.

Irizarry filmed the video about a month ago, but it has gained recent traction and since been watched more than a million times.

Brett Kavanaugh and the Midterm Effect
He also took part in legal action over the vote recount in the state of Florida during the 2000 presidential election. Justice Anthony Kennedy opened up a seat on the court by announcing his retirement June 27.

For several minutes the man berates Irizarry and at one point stands a few inches from her. He had previously been charged with misdemeanor assault for the incident.

"He's very distraught and not happy about having to leave employment much sooner than he intended, but because of the strong reaction from the public and political figures, he thought it would be unrealistic to stay as an officer".

The man, who was later identified as Timothy Trybus, 62, faces two counts of felony hate crime.

Almost half of Americans are unaware that Puerto Ricans are United States citizens, according to polling taken after the island was rocked by a hurricane last September. She explains that Irizarry has a permit and she warns him that he could be arrested "for not being compliant". Meanwhile an investigation into the incident continues despite the officer's resignation. As Trybus continues to harass her other officers arrived and a female police officer finally steps in on behalf of Irizarry. Officer Connor's actions came under intense fire based on the video.

"The officer should have stepped in, and he should have done something", Forest Preserves Chief of Police Kelvin Pope said at a news conference Tuesday.

Puerto Rico is a United States commonwealth with its own constitution.

Video of the incident shows the officer nearby but not responding. Puerto Rican residents have been American citizens since 1917 and have the right to vote in USA presidential primaries but not in presidential elections.

Ricardo Rossello, the governor of Puerto Rico, wants the officer fired.
