Woman In Puerto Rico Shirt Harassed While Cop Looks On

A Chicago police officer is being investigated after video showed him ignoring a woman's pleas for help while a man berated her for wearing a Puerto Rico shirt.
In the video, shot at the Caldwell Woods Forest Preserve on the Northwest Side, Trybus can be seen approaching the woman, Mia Irizarry, and asking her about her shirt and her citizenship status.
Mia Irizarry was just trying to celebrate her 24th birthday at the park on June 14. More officers arrived and arrested the man, who was described as drunk. "My point is, why are you wearing that?" he said. "Then you should not be wearing that. I am appalled, shocked & disturbed by the officer's behavior", Rossello's tweet reads.
Irizzary was wearing a shirt made to look like the Puerto Rico flag, with the words "Puerto Rico" written on the top. "You're not gonna change us, you know that?" he says, insinuating that she is an interloper. "Are you a United States citizen?"
"Are you a citizen?" People on Twitter called the officer "worthless" and noted that Puerto Rico is a United States commonwealth and its people American citizens.
'If she's an American citizen, why is she wearing that s**t?' Trybus shouts. She calls for his help - even alerting him that she feels "highly uncomfortable" - but he does nothing. "This guy's just walking up to me, he basically got in my face, damn near nearly touched me".
Irizzary then tries to plead with policeman again, saying: 'Officer, I paid for a permit for this area, I do not feel comfortable here, is there anything you can do?'
The officer appears to finally engage and Irizarry can be heard saying, "OK, well how come you're saying something when [my brother's] going up, but when he was coming up to me, you didn't do anything?" She later says in the video, about the officer, "He didn't do anything".
The female officer then interviews Irizzary, who tells her that the first officer on the scene stood "watching the whole thing happen".
The agency adds, "The intoxicated individual involved in the incident was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct".
Footage of the incident, which took place last month, resurfaced online in recent days and one Facebook post with the clip had almost 2 million views at time of publication. Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello responded on Twitter, "Today a video surfaced of an undignified event in which a Puerto Rican woman was brutally harassed by a bigot while an officer did not interfere".
In a series of tweets about the incident, Rosello said he hoped Preckwinkle would involve herself in the matter and that the initial officer on the scene "be expelled from the police force" for not calming the situation.
"If the investigation confirms the officer did not take appropriate steps to ensure public safety, disciplinary action will be swift", Stagner said via email.
"The United States of America is a nation that was built and thrives on diversity".
'We can not allow those who do not understand America's greatness to terrorize people due to their background. "Whether they are racists at a park, Cook County employees who do nothing, or Presidents who toss paper towels at people and denigrate Latinos w/ every Tweet, this is not the America we want to become & standing up to hate & bigotry must start at home".
"After the June 14 incident, we immediately launched an investigation pursuant to our personnel policies into the response of our officer".
