Burning with hate in Omaha

“You almost feel bad for a minute. He’s a young man and he made a hate-filled, drunken mistake that will have a lasting effect on his life and his family.”

Burning Rainbow Flag

Jess Meadows-Anderson, on Omaha man Cameron Mayfield, who stole the rainbow flag hanging from Meadows-Anderson’s porch and set it ablaze. Meadows-Anderson shares the home with her wife, Ariann Anderson, who felt that Mayfield’s action went “beyond vandalism or a threat. That’s a direct attack.” The 23-year-old is facing a second degree felony arson charge.
