Earlier this week, I sent a bouquet of flowers and a great big Puerto Rican flag to Mia Irizarry, a young Puerto Rican women who lives in Chicago who celebrated her 24th birthday last month.
"The 10-year veteran officer resigned late Wednesday, according to Cook County Forest Preserve District officials, rather than fight to keep his badge over the encounter that has been recorded and viewed millions of times, drawing global scorn for Connor's inaction", the outlet reported.
Connor was relegated to desk duty more than a week after the incident occurred.
Stormy Daniels Arrested While Dancing at Club
Asked about the arrest, a man who answered the phone at Sirens on Thursday morning declined to comment or provide his name. Prosecutors later dismissed the charges, according to a motion posted on Twitter by Cliffords lawyer, Michael Avenatti .
"All people are welcome in the Forest Preserves of Cook County and no one should feel unsafe while visiting our preserves".
During the clip, which went on to be viewed almost two million times, Trybus yells at Irizarry that she "should not be wearing that in the United States of America" in reference to her Puerto Rican flag shirt, as well as repeatedly asking if she is an American citizen. He gets closer to her and asks "Are you a citizen? The world is not going to change the United State of America".
Irizarry can be heard saying that Puerto Rico is part of the United States and the man approaches her multiple times.
Ms Irizarry asks a park police officer who has arrived for help, saying: "I am renting this area and he's harassing me about the shirt that I'm wearing".
He added that the park staff had apologised directly to Ms Irizarry and refunded the money she paid for her permit. I do not feel comfortable with him here.
How divers rescued the first 4 boys from the cave in Thailand
He said the operation began at 10 a.m., and it will take at least 11 hours for the first person to be taken out of the cave. The other, and perhaps more worrying, was that oxygen levels in the complex were falling close to unsafe levels.
I hope we are all more willing than Officer Conner to take action when someone is trying to bully someone else, and I hope most Americans and I know most Americans are not like Mr. Tybus who is afflicted with both fear and ignorance and probably a substance abuse problem.
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". She explains Irizarry has a permit, and she warns him he could be arrested "for not being compliant". As we said yesterday, if a white woman said she was being harassed by a Black or Latin person, the police would have reacted with a quickness. "People have just as much right to be here as you do, and when you're drunk you don't belong here".
For several minutes the man berates Irizarry and at one point stands a few inches from her.
Irizzary was wearing a shirt made to look like the Puerto Rico flag, with the words "Puerto Rico" written on the top.
In the wake of the incident, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle offered her apology to the woman and took the unusual step of calling Ricardo Rossello, the governor of Puerto Rico.
