    Carl Lemon, 63.

    A Connecticut high school employee is accused of threatening to go on a killing spree and "execute every white man he gets his hands on," police said.

    Bridgeport police said 63-year-old Carl Lemon, an in-school suspension counselor at Harding High School, was arrested Wednesday on charges of second-degree threat and breach of peace.

    According to a police report, a teacher reported that Lemon said he "couldn't wait for the Panthers to give the OK and a revolution begins" because he would "execute every white man he gets his hands on."

    Police said Lemon also stepped on an American flag and told students: "This is what I think about it."

    During an investigation, the assistant principal found an unsigned note in her mailbox that read, "Mr. Lemon talks about shooting whites a lot."

    It's unclear whether Lemon has an attorney.
