T-Shirt Tim

The hate crime charges come the day after it was announced that an officer on the scene who saw it all unfold yet did nothing - even when asked for help - resigned from his post.

The woman posted a Facebook video of the alleged incident, appearing to show a man, later identified by the department as Timothy Tybus, approaching her and criticizing her T-shirt, which is designed with the Puerto Rican flag. She had rented the gazebo, which didn't seem to matter to anyone in the general vicinity. 

What's more, in this day and age of "Permit Paula" and "Barbecue Betty," one has to wonder how this guy asking a complete stranger repeatedly if she is an American citizen hasn't yet earned the nickname "T-Shirt Tim."
