I'm still steaming about this. After dark on July 4th, as I took my dog for a walk I had heard firecrackers going off in the next block. Now, fireworks are illegal in New York State, but that's not my point. As I got down to the source of the noise, I saw several little kids, the oldest couldn't have been more than seven, running out in the street and lighting firecrackers with a cigarette lighter and then running back to their front porch. On the porch were five or six adults all guzzling beer and paying no attention to the kids whatsoever. Are these people total morons? Don't they understand that kids that small shouldn't have been doing this? It wouldn't take much to blow off a little hand or knock out an eye. I guess they don't understand that the biggest responsibility a parent has is to protect their children from harm. All during my walk, I was thinking about calling the police, but as I passed the house again, there were two police cars there. I hope they throw the book at them.
