Was SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon’s pride flag torched?

June 2, 2017

It appears that San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon was the owner of the home where a gay pride flag was allegedly stolen and burned, according to several sources.

On Thursday at 9:52 a.m., a resident on the 1200 block of Mill Street called to report an act of vandalism. Officers described the incident at the time as destruction, damage and vandalism of property, according to an arrest log.

On Thursday afternoon, the police department reported in a press release that someone had burned a gay pride flag within the city limits, but did not give any other details about the alleged incident. Instead, the department spoke about reporting hate crimes and the department’s commitment to inclusivity, according to the press release.

In the police log posted earlier today, instead of listing the specific property address as is typical, the department listed the vandalism as having occurred on the 1200 block of Mill Street.

Police department staffers and Harmon have failed to respond to questions about the flag burning. It is unclear if the mayor or the LGBT community was the target of the vandalism.

While Harmon and city officials remain closed lipped regarding the alleged vandalism, Harmon has posted multiple videos and photos of gay pride flags on social media. On her Instagram account, she posted a video of herself waving a large gay pride flag in the air.

    Wait a second here….
    You can Burn an American Flag as an expression of Free Speech but if you Burn a gay pride Flag it’s a Hate Crime?

    Folks….as Orwell said in Animal Farm, some pigs are more equal than others.

    I just surfed past Harmon’s Facebook page. Given its contents and the fact that the public has not been made aware of an arrest, I too wonder if this is one big fabrication to push her nutty agenda, whatever it might be?

    As someone else said, this one doesn’t smell right. One look at her FB page confirms that.

    Who cares about a flag?

    Why don’t you get your ass in gear and get the city budget in order.

    Last month it was the firefighter video and now this.

    How much tax payer $$ and time do you need to waste?

    Do all of SLO a favor and get your shit together before the shit hits the fans.

      If you have taken a look at the under funded pension liability you would see the$hit has already hit the fan, Harmon just refuses to so anything to fix and instead just turns the fan so it is aimed at the taxpayers.
