Post A man harasses a woman for wearing a Puerto Rico shirt, saying it's 'un-American'

Quote:
An Illinois park is investigating after a woman accused one of its police officers of standing by as a man harassed her for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag, saying it was un-American.

Mia Irizarry says she was trying to celebrate her 24th birthday in the Forest Preserves of Cook County last month when the man approached her asking her why she was wearing the sleeveless Puerto Rico flag shirt, which also had "Puerto Rico" written below the neckline.
Irizarry recorded the encounter on her phone, saying she felt threatened, and posted the video to Facebook.
On Monday, Forest Preserves of Cook County tweeted that it was aware of the June 14 incident and video.
‏"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.
The officer resigned Wednesday, the forest agency said. The investigation into the incident continues, the agency said.
Timothy G. Trybus, the reportedly intoxicated individual involved in the incident, was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct, according to a police report.
He is scheduled for his first court appearance August 1, the Cook County Circuit Court said.

Puerto Rico shirts are "un-American"...


I would love to get his opinion on the treasonous confederate flag and whether that is "American"...

Is this supposed to represent everyone? Or just the individual?...

The Confederacy was indeed in America. How about we get back on topic regarding the ninnies picking on the shirt?

Iím a little less mad about the drunk then I am about the cop. The drunk dude acted how I expect a racist hammered a--hole to act.

The cop didnít serve or protect.

Puerto Rico "UnAmerican"
It's long been my view that racism has a main root in stupidity and ignorance.
this story is just another example.

Hawaiian and Alaskan Tee shirts are probably unamarican too.
Not to mention "NEW Mexico" Tee Shirts !!!!

Moron. And that applies to the Park Office too.

The Confederate flag has nothing to do with this, and I view the statement as an attempt to blend unrelated subjects, which is based on assumptions. But nice try.

One little question, why did she start recording the incident? Did she know what was going to occur, or was it a grab for 15 minutes of internet fame? I always question peoples motives when they record these types of actions. The guy was obviously acting like a jerk, no question.

D'oh! You're right. They seceded, and picked up all the states and moved them to Atlantis.

Can you tell when somebody is attempting to derail the thread, especially with this stupid Confederate flag and Puerto Rico shirt comparison?
