Mia Irizarry speaks at a news conference in Chicago, Friday, July 13, 2018, about an incident where a man confronted her about a T-shirt she wore emblazoned with the Puerto Rican flag at a Chicago forest preserve on June 14. Irizarry says a forest preserve police officer who appeared to ignore her pleas for help only intervened to tell someone else to “calm down.” The man who confronted her has been charged with a hate crime and the officer has quit his job.
