Hamden school employee resigns following racial tirade
By Jeremy Troetti
Corinne Terrone resigned from her position as a clerk in the Central Office of the Hamden school district following the release of a video in which she called a man the N-word and spit on him in an East Haven supermarket, according to the New Haven Register.
East Haven Police Lt. Joseph Murgo said in a statement that the department “is aware of this disturbing video and the hate speech contained in it,” according to the Register.
Hamden mayor Curt Leng also denounced Terrone’s actions in a statement, per the Register.
“What I saw was vile and shocking,” Leng stated. “While I am disgusted and disheartened seeing such hateful behavior, wildly unacceptable anywhere, I am thankful for the swift and effective actions taken by our school system to address this head on and make clear that hate and violence will not be tolerated.”
There is currently no known motive for Terrone’s actions. She faces a number of potential charges, including breach of peace and assault.
