I'm living in a densely populated urban area (alias "Big City").
There is an ordinance forbidding use of fireworks.
The flake across the alley is a certified nuisance. Has a black lab
that just barks and barks for no reason. Contrary to city ordinance,
but he's a sweet talker and the cops don't want to enforce the law,
so the dog continues to bark and bark.
Flake likes his fireworks. Fired off lots of roman candle thingies
the other day. I got lots of cardboard packing from the candles in
my back yard.
Flake is dangerous. Could easily start a house-fire. I tell him
"I don't care about firecrackers, but please don't shoot balls
of fire into our sky", and it's like water off a ducks back.
Cops wanna enforce the law only when it's *their*
call and they
have a desire to enforce.
How do ya get them to enforce the law as written?
