Officer resigns after dispute over Puerto Rican shirt

Forest Preserves of Cook County officer Patrick Connor resigned late Wednesday while officials investigate his response to a woman who said she was being harassed for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag.

The Forest Preserves of Cook County had previously said the officer had been placed on desk duty as it investigated the incident. But it became widely known this week when a video of the encounter was posted on social media, prompting condemnation from many local activists and politicians and from the governor of Puerto Rico.

The Forest Preserve Superintendent will speak more about the matter Thursday morning.

Trybus was later arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

Eventually the first officer on the scene takes notes of Irizarry's account of the incident and says that he was at the scene due to the separate incident, noting that she was not being attacked though acknowledging she felt threatened.

"Is there anything you can do?" she said.

The anger over the incident also attracted the attention of Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló.

"The world is not going to change the United States of America". The footage showed the officer seemingly ignoring the woman's requests for his help as she explains that the man is harassing her and that she has a permit to be in the public space.
