Hearing Scheduled For Cop Who Stood By In Racist Rant Video

WATCH: Man Attacks Woman for Puerto Rico Flag Shirt [FULL VIDEO]

The man, who has been charged with assault and disorderly conduct, can be seen approaching Irizarry and asking her about her shirt - which depicted a Puerto Rican flag - and her citizenship status.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to begin removing mega-generators providing backup power at Puerto Rico's power plants as soon as next week, as the plants are deemed stable, leaving the island vulnerable to power disruptions during hurricane season.

The top lawyer for the union that represents Patrick Connor and his fellow officers on the Cook County Forest Preserve District police force urged people not to rush to judgment because of what was seen on a video of an incident involving Connor last month at a forest preserve. "You know that right?" says the man, who appears to be intoxicated.

"Officer, can you - I'm renting this area and he's harassing me about the shirt that I'm wearing", Irizarry says.

The Facebook video from June 14, shot by 24-year-old Mia Irizarry in a covered picnic bench area in a park in Chicago, shows a man repeatedly harassing her about her shirt. The world is not going to change the United States of America. The man resumes his abuse, saying: "You're not American, if you were American you wouldn't wear that".

He then asks her twice if she is a citizen, which she says she is.

Irizarry is heard asking the man to please get away from her, and begging the nearby officer, Connor, for help.

A Hunter College student from Somers who volunteered to help fix and reconstruct many homes in Puerto Rico decimated by Hurricane Maria shared her experience with News 12. She says they finished 16 homes in 10 days.

She plans to interview all officers at the scene as well as Irizarry and said the video will be used in future training exercises by the Forest Preserves. The officer captured on the video has been assigned to desk duty while his inaction is investigated, according to a statement from the department.

Irizarry is heard in the video telling a female police officer her account of what happened, and how Connor "literally was just standing there watching the whole thing happen like nothing". "Can you please grab him?" to which he turns his head and walks in the opposite direction. Now, an investigation has been opened into the incident, where the man-who was visibly drunk-verbally berated the woman and called her shirt un-American.

"If the investigation confirms the officer did not take appropriate steps to ensure public safety, disciplinary action will be swift", Stagner said via email.

Gov. Rossello wrote on Twitter that he is "appalled, shocked & disturbed by the officer's behavior..."

Trybus is scheduled for his first court appearance August 1, the Cook County Circuit Court said. The video shows him asking whether or not the woman has US citizenship. After the incident, we immediately launched an investigation pursuant to our personnel policies into the response of our officer.

"This is not the America we all believe in", he said.
