Segin, a transgender woman, burned an American flag with a thin blue line through it at 12th and Locust streets during Sunday’s event for the city’s LGBTQ community.
Krasner said an investigation revealed she tried to pour accelerant on the flag in order to light it on fire as road flares went off from her backpack.
Leesburg, VA – Loudoun County NAACP President Phillip Thompson fears the flag burning stunt could incite violence reminiscent of the deadly Charlottesville rally last year. Leesburg, VA was occupied by Confederate General Robert E. Lee for a period during the American Civil War in 1862.
