A Connecticut school was placed on lockdown after knife-wielding staffer threatened to “Kill Every White man”.
Carl Lemon, an in-school suspension coordinator at Harding High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut was arrested after a co-worker expressed fear of him and after he made his threats public.
He has been charged with second-degree threatening and breach of peace. Lemon had threatened to go on a knifing rampage and said that he was just waiting for the Panthers to give the word so he could start.
Lemon is free after he posted $5,000 bail. Police found a large knife in his desk.
Police say that Lemon exclaimed that he “couldn’t wait for the Panthers to give the OK and a revolution begins” so he could “execute every white man he gets his hands on.”
Police say that the school employee also trampled on an American flag in front of students and told them “this is what I think about it.”
According to the Bridgeport Daily Voice, the Principal said she received one note from a student reading: “Mr. Lemon talks about shooting whites a lot! He is waiting for the Panthers to tell him to execute. He steps on an American flag and disrespects us. Check his computer. He watches radical stuff during class. I am scared he will do something. He told a teacher that he does not like the principals and he will take them out. He is crazy.”
Police say that when they notified him of his arrest, Lemon started pacing around his desk, opening drawers and acted like he was trying to hide something.
He finally surrendered peacefully and police found the large kitchen knife in his work area.
Lemon has a history of harassment and disorderly conduct in the past but was never convicted.
