Texas Couple's Gay Pride Flag Set On Fire In Mailbox

A Carrollton couple believes hate was the motivation for an early morning crime that targeted their home, their mailbox and their rainbow pride flag.

Police say Thursday morning just before 3:30 a.m. someone ripped the couple's gay pride flag from the side of their home on Longwood Drive, stuffed it into their mailbox at curbside and lit it on fire using several neighbors' mail as kindling.

 

 

"We found out at about 8 o'clock, and by 12 had a new one up," Nash said. "And if they try to take it down again we'll put another one up."

Adversity is key in our struggle. Support from neighbors doesn't hurt either.
