A Connecticut school district secretary resigned after she was caught on camera calling an African-American man the N-word and spat towards him and his wife at a local supermarket.
According to the Courant, Corinne Terrone was captured on cellphone footage verbally harassing the man and his wife while her two children were present. After Terrone called the unidentified man the n-word, she started spitting towards him as he walked away from her.
Terrone did not turn herself in to police since the Friday night racial tirade but East Haven Police Lt. Joseph Murgo says his staff are well aware of the situation:
“We are in touch with Shoprite and are looking to get a better understanding of what took place last night,” “At this time, we have not been contacted by anybody directly involved in this matter. We are urging any potential victims of last night’s incident to contact us so we can investigate this matter further”
Hamden School District spokesperson Karen Kaplan said Terrone’s actions are not a reflection of the school district:
“Such behavior, exhibited in public or private, is completely unacceptable and in conflict with the values of Hamden Public Schools. “The employee is separated from service, and we hope that her children will receive the support they need after witnessing such a traumatic event.”
Terrone was also reported to the state Department of Children and Families.
