Po­lice won’t en­force fire­works laws

Re­gard­ing Brian Ya­mane’s plea that we turn in il­le­gal fire­works det­o­na­tors, I say good luck (“Re­port py­rotech­nic punks to the po­lice,” Star-Ad­ver­tiser, Let­ters, Dec. 5).

My neigh­bor blew off a home­made bomb, wit­nessed by his 2- and 4-year-old sons. The po­lice came but I was told noth­ing could be done de­spite his ad­mis­sion and the rem­nants of the de­vice on the ground.

The po­lice will not pur­sue scofflaws and will turn a blind eye un­less you wit­ness and doc­u­ment the in­ci­dent (i.e., video).

Un­til the po­lice get on board we must hun­ker down in the war zone that is Hawaii.

Happy hol­i­days.
