Indiana Woman Arrested for Leaving Racist Note on Neighbor's Door
She greeted the new neighbor's Black son by calling him the N-word.
Deborah Cantwell, age 63, was arrested for leaving a racist note, which targeted their Black son, on the door of her new neighbor's home.
An unidentified man called deputies to the new home he and his family were moving into on Thursday in Howard County because he found a disgusting note filled with racial slurs attached to the front door. The house had also been covered in toilet paper.
The letter read: "NO N—–S wanted in this neighborhood. THIS IS A WHITE NEIGHBORHOOD – some people find N—–S stressful due to 33 years of NEGATIVE experience [sic] and it causes serious health issues."
Cantwell admitted to writing the letter and defacing the home with toilet paper stating:
"I mean, Blacks get away with it every time. Just rage, I was trying to vent."
She has been charged with misdemeanor charges of intimidation and criminal mischief.
The ornery racist even refused to apologize.
"I was just trying to let them know that they weren't really … welcome as far as us," Cantwell continued. "I just needed to let off some steam … I'm not a violent person so I didn't think it was any big deal."
"Just the sight of the child reminds me of all the things I live in this town to forget," the note read. "Takes me back to the n—–s that beat my sibling – bloody and bruised – and police saying they couldn't do anything because they are Black."
The former neighbor who sold the house to the family informed them that Cantwell was opposed to them buying the house so when both incidences occurred, the father suspected the woman as the culprit.
When asked about how she felt, the boy's mother replied: "I will forgive you one day, but for now you have instilled in all my heart, a fear I have never had before. You have instilled fear in my family, you have instilled fear [in] my children. This fear I have is crippling."

For her actions, Wendy Bies spent the night behind bars.
Wendy Bies, a 53-year-old white woman, walked into the Gallatin County Courthouse looking for a ballot; she walked out of the courthouse with a criminal record.
How did this trade happen? She saw Brian Mango waiting in line to vote in the Montana's battleground U.S. Senate and congressional campaigns on Tuesday, and told the 22-year-old, "Go back where you came from."
"Do you know why mom is here? Because Americans bombed her country," Mango said of his mother, a refugee from Laos.
"Do you know why my dad's here? Because they brought his ancestors here in chains," he said of his father, who is Black.
Bies replied with ridicule, "They wanted to come to America to get out of that f*cking a**-hole city. So don't you tell me this is not where you want to be."
Realizing that she may have started something she could not get out of, Bies bellowed, "You are not going to stop me from voting. We need a civil order to separate us."
Mango said Bies began making racial comments after she told him he had a "cute butt."
Footage was captured by Tennison Big Day, a Native American, who was behind the two of them in line. Big Day told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle he heard Bies claim that it was President Trump who gave Mango his voting rights.
Bies spent the rest of election night in Gallatin County jail after being arrested on charges of obstructing a police officer and disorderly conduct. She pleaded not guilty and remained jailed on $500 bail Wednesday afternoon.
