Stupid drunk racist tells woman that her Puerto Rican top isn’t ‘American’

The latest incident of racist stupidity saw a drunk man call out a woman wearing a top with the Puerto Rican flag as not being American (if you didn’t know, Puerto Rico is a US territory).

However, that is not the most shocking part of this story as the woman approached a police officer for help and the officer simply walked away!

Fortunately, there was another (female) officer on the scene who stepped up to help – telling the bigot:

“You don’t come here harassing people. People have just as much right to be here as you and when you’re drunk, you don’t belong here.”

Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosello was disappointed by the incident and disturbed that the first officer did nothing, tweeting:

“Today a video surfaced of an undignified event in which a Puerto Rican woman was brutally harassed by a bigot while an officer did not interfere. I am appalled, shocked and disturbed by the officer’s behavior.”

The first officer has now been assigned to desk duty (perhaps to learn about the United States’ territories?), while the drunk man was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

All’s well that ends well?
