'Moron Harangues Woman In Park For Wearing Puerto Rico Shirt In America'

[m.huffpost.com]

' A woman setting up a birthday picnic at an Illinois park was repeatedly harassed by an angry stranger for wearing a T-shirt saying “Puerto Rico” in America.
“You should not be wearing that in the United States of America,” he said.
The disturbing confrontation last month was captured on video and posted to Facebook July 6. The threatening man, who was clearly clueless that Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, harangued the woman as a park police officer nearby did nothing — even though the woman repeatedly asked him for help. The officer even walked away from her as the harasser asked him: “Why is she wearing that @#$%&?”
You’re “not going to change us,” the harasser told the woman — though it wasn’t clear exactly whom he meant by “us.”
At one point he asked the woman, “Are you educated?” '

...and another:

Woman beats a 91-year-old Mexican man with a brick, tells him to ‘go back to your country’

Showing that racism and xwnophobia comes in all colors, the attacker was a African American woman. The victim is a permanent legal resident of the US (ie green card holder).

But really, these kind of things just happen, right?

Yes, but they're happening more often now:

...Rodriguez’s attack comes after the Department of Justice released its recent hate crime statistics, reported by KCRA. The 2017 California report, which was the first published since President Trump took office, evinced an uptick of more than 17 percent, with anti-Hispanic and anti-Latino crimes soaring over 50 percent last year, according to the Sacramento Bee.

You don't have to be a straight, white, male to be a racist:

At least there is this:

"The officer captured on the video has been assigned to desk duty while his inaction is investigated, according to a statement from the department. The unidentified “intoxicated” man who accosted the woman was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct."

The cop doing nothing is the far greater offense, much worse than what some ignorant drunk did.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Welcome to the Forest Preserves of good old Cook County..Illinois..outlying chicago basically.

these cops in the Cook County Forest Preserves are patronage slugs..They drive around, tell people to move along..hang out in their cars and hope nothing serious happens so they don't get shown up when they have to call the real cops..they dont want ANY trouble.

The guy should be fired but I'm sure his Patron Saint will find a way to move him laterally so he doesn't take a pay cut or a dent in his oversized pension.

Cook County gov is some seriously, big, dirty business.
