Officer resigns after dispute over Puerto Rican shirt

The Cook County Forest Preserve Police Officer that seemingly stood by while a woman was berated resigned Wednesday night, days after the video sparked outrage around the world.
But he said the officer considered it "an unfortunate incident" and felt he was not "given a fair shake".
Irizarry said she received an apology from the forest preserve shortly after she posted the video.
"You shouldn't be wearing that", he said, referring to a shirt that read Puerto Rico and displayed the flag.
As for Trybus, he was released on bond and has a court appearance scheduled on August 1.
Connor, the officer, took a passive approach despite the fact that Irizarry asked him politely, and several times, to try to defuse the situation.
The Forest Preserves confirmed they launched an investigation into the response of the officer, with Connor assigned to desk duty pending the outcome. "You know that right?" says the man, who appears to be intoxicated.
"You're not an American", Trybus screamed at Irizarry. As of Thursday morning, the video had be seen 1.5 million times.
"We might start with the fine example presented by Mia Irizarry and her family, who handled this ugly incident with great composure, never stooping to the level of the man who attacked her", he said in a written statement.

"The officer should have stepped in, and he should have done something", Forest Preserves Chief of Police Kelvin Pope said at a news conference Tuesday.
"You are not going to change us, you know that, right?"
