The exchange continued as the man got angrier and followed the woman away from the picnic area, yelling at her not to wear "that shit" in the U.S. While both pleaded to the police officer who was pacing languidly around them-with Irizarry calling for help as the angry stranger asked "Is she an American citizen"-the officer walked away". Puerto Ricans are American citizens whether they are born on the USA mainland or in Puerto Rico and have been since 1899, when Puerto Rico was acquired as a territory.
In addition, officials from the Forest Preserves of Cook County, which runs several wooded areas that surround Chicago, are looking into the behavior of a police officer who observed the incident and appeared to do little or nothing to stop it. The video shows a man angrily approaching a woman who is filming him as he yells "You're not gonna change us" while a nearby police officer stands by his auto and looks away as the distressed woman calls out for help. "You should not be wearing that in the United States of America".
As the video continues, more park officers arrive at the scene and finally sit the man down and ask for his ID. The world is not going to change the United States of America.
The man proceeds to ask Irizarry whether she is a United States citizen and Irizarry replies that she is.
As she was making the preparations, the man approached her and demanded to know why she was wearing her shirt, which also had the words "Puerto Rico" written on it.
"Officer, I feel highly uncomfortable".
Sebastian Vettel wins British Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton settles for second
That released Vettel into a lead he would hold to the end, while Hamilton forced his way inside Bottas at Brooklands a lap later. Bringing people closer to the sport is one thing, but asking them to help develop their sport is the next step.
"Officer, I'm renting, I paid for a permit for this area", she adds.
"A woman being verbally abused for simply wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag is another example of how racists feel emboldened in their attacks on minorities and immigrants thanks to the current administration", Martinez said.
"A charge for simple assault or disorderly conduct is not sufficient, this incident must be investigated and charged as a hate crime", Garcia said in a statement.
"All people are welcome in the Forest Preserves of Cook County and no one should feel unsafe while visiting our preserves", the department tweeted.
The officer in the video, whose name has not been released, has been assigned to desk duty pending the outcome of an ongoing investigation.
Eventually, more police officers arrived on the scene and she was able to file a report.
George Clooney released from hospital after scooter accident in Italy
Clooney reportedly was in Sardinia filming a television miniseries adapted from Joseph Heller's Second World War novel Catch-22. Local media representatives who had gathered at the hospital said Clooney left in a van through a side exit.
Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello also condemned the video.
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'.
Preckwinkle said Connor would face "disciplinary action" depending on the results of the Forest Preserves' investigation. A female officer tells Trybus, "You don't come here harassing people... when you're drunk you don't belong here". The officer is seen turning the other way.
The man continues ranting, while the officer doesn't acknowledge Irizarry's plea.
"I am appalled, shocked & disturbed by the officer's behavior", Rossello posted in a tweet.
"This is America", he says.
Trump told Kavanaugh of pick Sunday
This issue may not get as much buzz as abortion or health care, but it's probably the one that's directly relevant to Trump. During his presidential campaign, Trump had called for "total and complete" block on Muslims entering the US.
