USA man charged with hate crime over shirt incident

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. He has a bail hearing Friday afternoon in Skokie.

Trybus was later charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

The incident became national news this week after a video uploaded on social media showed Trybus approaching a woman, identified as Mia Irizarry, as she stood near a picnic grove in Caldwell Woods, a recreational area in the Forest Preserve District of Cook County, a green belt that surrounds Chicago.

"You should not be wearing that in the United States of America", he tells her. "Are you a citizen?"

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".

"Officer, officer? I feel highly uncomfortable". When the woman complains to a Cook County Forest Preserves officer that the man is harassing her and questioning her citizenship, the officer doesn't respond.

"(Connor's) personnel file will reflect that this officer did not resign in good standing, with a note indicating that he left the district with discipline pending", the park agency's general superintendent, Arnold Randall, said. "We might start with the fine example presented by Mia Irizarry and her family, who handled this ugly incident with great composure, never stooping to the level of the man who attacked her". She said it took two hours before officers arrested Trybus for disorderly conduct. "We intend to use the video in future training exercises for our officers".

The video, posted on Facebook, has been viewed millions of times. The video shows him approaching her, asking why she is wearing a v-neck Puerto Rican flag shirt with the words "Puerto Rico" written below the neckline.

"I wonder where they get such an idea?"

"All of the lying, hostility and racism is taking a toll on our country". After the video went viral, the officer no longer has a job. The officer involved in the incident resigned from his position Wednesday night.

Forest preserve officials said they "are further addressing aspects of this incident" and more details are forthcoming.

CNN has attempted to reach Trybus for comment.

In the video, she asks police officer Patrick Connor to intervene and requests that Timothy stop crowding her.
