On Wednesday a Connecticut high school went on lockdown after a staffer who wanted to "execute every white man" and threatened to go on a killing spree, according to police.
The suspect was identified as Carl Lemon. He serves as the in-school suspension coordinator at Harding High School in Bridgeport, CT. He was released on $5,000 bond after being charged with second-degree threat and breach of peace.
The school alerted officers to a possible threatening situation and they immediately responded. The school's principal, Dane Brown, said Lemon made the threatening remarks to a teacher.
According to police Lemon said he hates white people and can't wait “for the panthers to give the OK and a revolution begins because he will execute every white man he gets his hands on.”
Another school staff member said that Lemon stomped on the American flag before telling students, "This is what I think about it."
Per Fox News:
During the police investigation, Principal Brown said she found an anonymous note in her mailbox regarding Lemon’s troubling behavior.
“Mr. Lemon talks about shooting whites a lot! He watches radical stuff during class. I am scared he will do something … he is crazy,” the note reportedly read.
Lemon previously faced charges of creating a public disturbance, disorderly conduct, and harassment. The charges were later dropped.
Very scary stuff in Connecticut and also blatant racism. Glad they were able to get control of the situation before disaster struck.
More from Twitter:
Love how not a single outlet besides Fox is reporting on Carl Lemon, a Connecticut high school counselor, who threatened to “kill all white men” once the “panthers give the OK.”
But it’s not racist because he’s black 👍🏼
