Puerto Rico rant victim calls cop who stood by a ‘coward’

Trybus, who was intoxicated at the time, approached Irizarry because she was wearing a Puerto Rican flag shirt. After the video went viral, authorities began investigating the cop who stood nearby and failed to act as the incident occurred (he has since resigned), and now, the man at the center of the controversy has also received his comeuppance.

Nasatir, a former Cook County prosecutor, pointed out that under IL law, Trybus might be guilty of a hate crime if any of his actions were motivated by his bias against the victim, "From the statements (Trybus) made, and the language used, it's something that certainly should be seriously looked at to see if the hate crime enhancement is appropriate", he said.

General Superintendent Arnold Randall also stated, "We at the Forest Preserves of Cook County applaud the State's Attorney decision to file hate crime charges against Timothy Trybus". She even stated that she felt highly uncomfortable as the man questions her citizenship and loyalty to the USA, and tells her she "should not be wearing that in the United States of America".

Lonnie Nasatir, midwest regional director for the Anti-Defamation League, told the Chicago Tribune that a hate-crime charge might be warranted. "I really do believe there are people who say to themselves, 'If Trump can do it, I can do it. It was threatening and menacing and obviously full of racial ethnic hatred". "Are you a United States citizen?" he screamed, referring to the shirt as "un-American".

Germany's Angelique Kerber too strong for Jelena Ostapenko
Kerber used a seven-game run to seize control of her semifinal and collect a 6-3, 6-3 victory over the 12th-seeded Ostapenko. Williams' match against Goerges featured two of the best servers around, and began quite evenly, until 2-all, 30-all.

"It was extremely surreal to think that someone whose job is to protect and serve could just completely walk away..." she said at a park in a Chicago neighborhood with a large Puerto Rican population, in her first public comments about the incident. She never called police herself.

More police arrive and Irizarry says she still doesn't feel safe.

When asked who she found most offensive, Connor or Trybus, she replied: "They are equally offensive". 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 get away from me?" "Then you should not be wearing that", he continued. "You know that right?" From behind the camera Irizarry can be heard begging him to stop. She explains that Irizarry has a permit and she warns him that he could be arrested "for not being compliant". Puerto Rico is a USA commonwealth. Puerto Rican residents have been American citizens since 1917 and have the right to vote in U.S. presidential primaries, but not in presidential elections.
