video asks if she is a USA citizen and says "you're not going to change us, you know that?" and "the world is not going to change the United States of America".
Conner's inaction sparked intense criticism, prompting him to resign on Thursday, said Arnold Randall, general superintendent of the Forest Preserve District of Cook County, at a news conference on Thursday.
Officer Patrick Connor, 56 and a 10-year veteran of the force, resigned late Wednesday, July 11, the day before he was to explain the incident at an Internal Affairs disciplinary hearing, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Timothy Trybus, 62, is charged with two felony counts of hate crime, Cook County State's Attorney spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said. He had previously been charged with misdemeanor assault for the incident.
More police arrive and Irizarry says she still doesn't feel safe. It also had "Puerto Rico" written below the neckline. State Senator Omar Aquino urged Irizarry to sue the officer, reminding her that he pushed through legislation that allows her to "sue someone for a hate crime".
Finally an uninvolved bystander, who had been watching the scene unfold, called for more police.
Irizarry posted the video of Trybus's racist rant and Officer Connor's lack of response on Facebook, where it attracted huge attention across the country and around the world. "Are you a citizen?"
The incident had drawn an immediate backlash, with a number of local politicians and some from Puerto Rico condemning the attack. She asks a park police officer to help, saying, "I am renting this area and he's harassing me about the shirt that I'm wearing". "Can you please grab him?"
The officer can then be seen talking to the man who gesticulates back and tells him to "shut the f*** up". We can not allow those who do not understand America's greatness to terrorize people due to their background.
Cook County Commissioner Jesús "Chuy" García had called for hate crimes charges against Trybus.
