Harding High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut was put on lock down Wednesday after 63 year old Carl Lemon threatened to go on a killing spree and a large kitchen knife was found in his drawer. Police said Lemon, who is an in school suspension teacher, 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.” Students also say that he has stomped on the American flag in class telling them “This is what I think about it”. An anonymous note had previously been left in the principals 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.”
There are two things that are really disturbing about this. The first is that despite the threats he was released on just a $5,000 bond. Secondly, a teacher making threats to commit a racially motivated killing spree has not made national news. Why not? And why aren`t there any investigations into what radicalized him or if he has ties to any hate filled extremist groups?
