Had the hearing not gone well, Connor could have been suspended or fired.

Supt Randall said that Ms Irizarry deserved to be praised for her response amid a national trend of "racially charged, abusive incidents we're seeing throughout the country".

He's scheduled to be in court on Friday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Timothy G.Trybus repeatedly walked away and returned to heap more abuse on Mia Irizarry.

The incident took place last month in a public park in the Chicago suburbs. In the video, Irizarry is approached by a man, identified by authorities as 62-year-old Timothy Trybus, who tells her she should not be wearing the Puerto Rican flag shirt in the US, and asks "Are you a citizen?"

In the footage, a man can be seen approaching Irizarry saying: "You should not be wearing that in the United States of America".

"You're not an American", Trybus tells Irizarry. "Are you a citizen?" "The world is not going to change the United States of America, period", he continued. "Then you should not be wearing that". 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. "I am renting this area and he's harassing me about the shirt that I'm wearing".

This is certainly not the first time, but right now we are in a moment of history when Americans are being told to fear other Americans and one of the reasons I think the video went viral is because it is emblematic of our times.

The officer can then be seen talking to the man who gesticulates back and tells him to "shut the f*** up".

Ms Irizarry calls on a nearby park police officer for help. At one point in the video, Irizarry turns the phone on herself to provide a glimpse of the shirt.

Led by their two superstars, James Harden and Chris Paul , along with a solid supporting cast featuring Clint Capela and P.J. Anthony expressed to the Thunder at the end of the team's playoff run he would not accept a bench role.

The video had angered public officials including the governor of Puerto Rico. He and his wife sent flowers to Mia Irizarry with a note saying "We are proud of you".

'We can not allow those who do not understand America's greatness to terrorize people due to their background. Spencer, speaking about America, told the Los Angeles Times in 2016: "We live in a multi-cultural country where now, European Americans are being dispossessed".

Irizarry informs her accuser that Puerto Rico is part of the United States.

Cook County Commission President Toni Preckwinkle called Gov. Rossello and offered him her personal apology.

What does the video show? The officer involved in the incident resigned from his position Wednesday night.

In an earlier statement, the police said that an investigation had been launched and the officer had been placed on desk duty. The hearing scheduled for July 12, almost a month after the incident occurred, would have been the first official action taken by Cook County officials.

But the officer continues to do nothing or even move closer to Irizzary as the man continues to approach her. They condemned Connor's inaction to serve and especially protect the woman. Despite Connor's resignation, forest preserve officials say their work is just beginning.

Garcia called on Cook County to review officer training procedures for all county officers and staff as well as a review of disciplinary procedures.

It'll now be up to a judge or jury to decide whether Trybus' actions that day rise to the level of a hate crime. She said it took two hours before officers arrested Trybus for disorderly conduct. Those counts remain, but they could be dropped because the hate crime charges are the more serious, Simonton said.
