NEBRASKA: Man Arrested After Stealing And Burning Neighbors’ Rainbow Flag

Gay Star News reports:

A 23-year-old man is behind bars after allegedly burning down a rainbow flag in Omaha, Nebraska. Cameron Mayfield, 23, stole a rainbow flag from his neighbors, set it on fire, and ran through the neighborhood, according to police. It comes as Nebraska has lifted the ban on same-sex couples from becoming foster parents last week. Ariann Anderson and Jess Meadows-Anderson, a married couple who live next door, said it went “beyond vandalism or a threat” as it was a “direct attack.” “It’s just a reminder that hate is still out there,” they said. The two women woke up just after midnight on Sunday morning (1 March), believing their home was being burglarized.
