A 57-year old white women is being accused of sending a series of racist emails to the newsroom of a local television station and singling out an on-air personality, according to the New Orleans Police Department.
Caroline Kain who was an employee at a local news station was arrested on Friday for sending a string of racist emails to the newsroom and singling out an on-air personality who is black women, according to the New Orleans Police Department.
Kain is being accused of sending 81 emails to the station between May 5 and May 11, repeatedly referring to station employees by the N-word. The emails came from an email address containing Kain’s first initial, last name and the year she was born, according to the court records.
Seems quite incriminating if you ask me.
The emails were directed at a black on-air journalist and included rants on the employees appearance and how Kain accused the journalist of having a criminal record the was “punishable by death”. Strange twist of events but Caroline would actually be the one who ended up with a criminal record.
After receiving the emails the station took it upon themselves to contact the police and hire extra security. The New Orleans Police Department got permission to look at the Google account the email was linked to and it went right back to Kain. The NOPD then got a search warrant and arrested Kain who is facing up to a year in her case against cyberstalking.
No word yet from Kain or the station.
