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