Connecticut high school on lockdown, a school employee threatens to 'execute every white man'
A black suspension coordinator at a school in Bridgeport was arrested recently. It has been reported that Carl Lemon threatened a teacher.
Lemon has since been released but this was not the first time that he drew attention to himself in a negative manner. According to Fox News, reported that the incident occurred on March 28, 2018.
Lemon, 63, caused Harding High School in Bridgeport to go on lockdown on Wednesday. This was after he threatened to “execute every white man” and go on a killing spree.
The in-school suspension coordinator was charged with second-degree threat and breach of peace according to the Connecticut Post. He was subsequently released on a $5,000 bond.

The coordinator also said he couldn’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.” It’s also been alleged that he stomped on an American flag.
He told students in the classroom that it was what he thought about the American flag. During the police investigation, Brown said that she had found an anonymous note in her mailbox regarding Lemon’s troubling behavior.
