(Officer) Connor told the victim the suspect (Timothy Trybus) is not a threat & is just a ‘loudmouth,’
but the suspect (Trybus) has a history of battery arrests.

14. This moron doesn't seem to know that Puerto Rico is part of the United States.

Sort of like Trump doesn't know.

15. The difference is

This guy was drunk off his ass, and he probably knows it's part of the USA now that he has sobered up.

Trump doesn't drink and he still doesn't know.

Would be funny if he had an ancestor from one of Trump's "sh*thole countries."

20. I'm guessing..

is that if the shirt had said Texas or some other state he wouldn't have harassed her. He is a moron. I wonder if he would be upset about Hawaii or Alaska.

21. Good!

Good good good! An example needs to be made!

Bullying assholes like that guy are cowards, and one person he would never try it on is me. Not twice, anyway.

I haven't been in a physical confrontation (apart from controlled training) since I was about 15 and don't care to repeat it. But I'd consider an exception, in his case.

24. Yes! Now that's justice! Now we need to get the cop who stood idly by fired.

Stood idly by until a man defended the woman, and then he reacted. Racist!

25. Idle, indifferent to the racism & not bright knowing he was likely being filmed.

Some understandably think the officer should have been fired, but he resigned first according to the article:

"The fallout since the video's dissemination has been swift: The officer, Patrick Connor, who had been placed on desk duty on June 24 during an internal investigation, resigned on Wednesday amid calls for the forest preserve district to terminate his employment."
