Police won’t enforce fireworks laws
Administrator, Hawaii Emergency Management Agency
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.
