Man harasses woman for wearing a Puerto Rico shirt, saying it’s ‘un-American’

Man harasses woman for wearing a Puerto Rico shirt, saying it’s ‘un-American’”

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.

Mia Irizarry who was celebrating her 24th birthday at the park last month, was approached by a man, a park police officer, who repeatedly asked her as to why she was wearing a sleeveless Puerto Rico flag shirt?

"Hopefully, this officer will actually do something", Irizarry is heard saying when the second officer arrives. "You're not gonna change us, you know that?" he says, insinuating that she is an interloper. No, the world is not going to change the United States of America. On video, you can hear her saying, "I am renting this area and he's harassing me about the shirt that I'm wearing". The man resumes his abuse, saying: "You're not American, if you were American you wouldn't wear that".

Irizarry responded by saying that Puerto Rico is part of the US, and then asked an officer for help.

Several minutes later, other police officers arrived to arrest Trybus.

"Can you please step away from me?"

"Well I guess you just never know", Irizarry responds. "He basically got in my face, damn near nearly touched me", Irizarry says in the video.

The unidentified harasser, who park officers say was intoxicated, was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct. The agency tweeted Monday that an investigation of the officer is ongoing.

A woman in the USA was subjected to harassment at the hands of a police officer for wearing a shirt with a Puerto Rican flag at the IL based, Forest Preserves of Cook County, CNN reported.

As he gets closer to her, he tells her that "this is America".

'People have just as much right to be here as you do, ' she can be heard telling him in the clip. "This is not the America we all believe in", Rosello tweeted.

Dennis White, chief attorney for the forest preserves, said it was possible charges against Trybus "could be updated" as a hate crime, and their office was in contact with the Cook County state's attorney's office.

"After the incident, we immediately launched an investigation pursuant to our personnel policies into the response of our officer", it said, in a series of posts on Twitter.

He was referring, of course, to President Trump's visit to a hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico in October, in which he tossed rolls of towels into the crowd as if they were basketballs.

Puerto Rico is a United States commonwealth, with its residents being considered USA citizens since 1917.

Stagner confirmed that the man who was shown harassing Irizarry was charged by the preserve's police department. "I was denied entry into the Capitol complex by U.S. Capitol Police despite being a Congressman with identification, because my daughter was carrying a Puerto Rican flag and the officer doubted that I could possibly be a Member of Congress".

The June incident, which the governor of Puerto Rico said "appalled, shocked, and disturbed" him, spread shock on social media.
