  1. Seemed like the officer was already on desk duty

  2. Cop turns his back on woman asking for his help and he doesn't get fckng fired? People who work at department stores and restaurants would face more consequences for turning their back on a customer. asking for help. Sickening!

  3. wanna bet that hes a ReatardBlican?

  4. How there are actually still people like this blows my mind. How is it possible that there are still people this ignorant in a time where information is so easily accessible? I don't get it. Wtf is wrong with people?

  5. Wow the ignorance. People are so annoying. Its a SHIRT.

  6. The cop can now work as a security guard 😂😂😂 good job officer.

  7. Anyone who says "welcome to Trumps America" is putting this in our president and it is wrong, these peaople and their attitudes have been here before trump began to run? And besides Hilary who was a proven liar and also a discrace for America was no choice for president! So suck it up and just be glad she wasnt elected!

  8. This man is a discrace to any American citizen watching! The lack of response and lack of concern from the officer is even more discraceful! God please help us!!! As a white man myself this conduct is so shameful and disgusting!

  9. That guys shirt has no red and white…that should be illegal.

  10. I'm Puerto Rican so I find that man's actions and words to be highly offensive and saddening knowing that even though we are US territory, some Americans still don't accept us

  11. If she got so offended then she has to be in the U.S illegally. If she wasn't then she would have nothing to hide.

  12. This is what you get when you elect trump and it's getting worse!

  13. Iknow how to make america great again ..TAKE ALL THEES WHITE RACIST TRASH OUT.. AND WE DONE..BEFORE MORE WHITES GRABS AR15 TO SHOOT ALL OUR KIDS ..

  14. Wonder she didn't pull out a knife and rip him a new arsehole.

  15. Hate to say it but lots of people get heat for wearing the American flag to

  16. I'm ashamed to be the same skin color as this man 🙁

  17. The man is right. I'm also sick of people who "flee" they're country to come to ours only to wave flags from the s-hole country they cowardly ran from. Go back.

  18. All the cops should be suspended due to not following instructions, she was threatened and uncomfortable and they didnt do anything.

  19. How do we contact the sheriffs office

  20. WHATS THE EXCUSE NOW TRUMPTARDS? PUERTO RICANS ARE LEGAL SO WHATS THE EXCUSE NOW

  21. If he were Hispanic, he would be charged with raped, battery, trespass, etc etc…

  22. we can wear whatever we want we have pride for our country just like him this just motivated me to wear puerto rican flag clothing

  23. Hmm., i cant tell of trumps so STUPID if he doesn’t know geography or my fellow americans…Puerto Rico is part of the United States of America…. weather ya’l hillbillies like it!!!

  24. If anyone is wondering why there are no more Trump-Supporter-Starter-Kits on the shelves, it's because this extra-chromosomal genius has bought them all.

  25. Thanks a lot Trump!!! ( ͝° ͜ʖ͡°)╭∩╮ 😊 😎 😋

  26. ….but what's even sadder part is, there are many Puerto Ricans that prefer to side with these racist crackers, especially the ones that look like they could be white in order to feel accepted….smdh… 😐 😕 🙃

  27. HIGh IQ INDEED!!! LMAOOOOOOOO!!!! If that's' "HIGH IQ", then I must be a GENIUS!!! LoLz!!! 😐 😕 🙃

  28. America:.the land of the stupidest people that ever lived

  29. I see people's priorities still being scrambled in the melting pot.
    Besides, isn't Puerto Rico part of the US?

  30. Oooh I wish he came up to me like that,I would have knocked him out

  31. WHY DIDNT SHE JUST SAY ITS A CAPTAIN AMERICA SHIRT!!? LOL

  32. trump supporters are as ignorant as he is….

  33. WOW!!       FAKE   NEWS   WILL   SHOW   THIS   VIDEO,      –       BUT   THEY   SURE   WON'T   SHOW   THE   VIDEOS   OF    LIBERALS    BEATING   UP   PEOPLE,    –    FOR   WEARING   A    HAT  WITH     ( MAKE   AMERICA   GREAT  AGAIN!!!)

  34. Always America, always America.

  35. I guess🤔 the cop was a Trumppet too..🙀 and didn’t see anything wrong with this situation😿

  36. How come I never meet these people. His face would be a great outlet for my aggression

  37. I would have violently body slammed and make him dog shirt

  38. These incidents are occurring more frequently now. It's 1936 again.

  39. Im puertorican and it really pains me to see this type of discrimination against us. It happens way too often and it even happened to me in one instance

  40. Another trump loving dbag, typical republican
