This is what happens when your mind is so twisted by racism and hate, that you lose your grip on rational thought.
On Wednesday, Harding High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut had a very tense situation, and were forced on lockdown, as they dealt with an employee, bent on spreading terror through racial hatred.
Carl Lemon, 63, an in-school suspension coordinator, was charged with second-degree threatening and breach of peace and was later released on $5,000 bond.
So what did he do?
After Lemon made threatening remarks to another teacher, police were called and dispatched a bit after noon, that day.
Police said Lemon stated that he hates white people and 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.”
He didn’t just reserve his hateful idiocy for other staff members. In front of kids, he stomped on an American flag, saying, “This is what I think about it.”
The students were concerned.
Police said the principal subsequently found an anonymous note in her mailbox stating, “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 school was put on lockdown, as more officers came in and Lemon was taken into custody.
This wasn’t even Lemon’s first brush with authorities. He was arrested on charges of creating a public disturbance, disorderly conduct, and harassment in the past, but those charges were either dropped or nolled, at some point.
How does a man with such radical, hateful views come to work with children, especially children of different races?
