    Well, “Good for you Graciano”. Maybe you’d like to bring your cats over and spend the time it takes to get my toddler to sleep through the random booms all over the place? One person’s ILLEGAL fun shooting off bottle rockets should not be more important than the numerous vets, pets and kids out there. The city already puts on a hell of a lot better fireworks show than you or any dozen people could hope to so why not appreciate it and let the rest of us get some sleep?!!? (PS, I’m in my 30’s, I just have a 5am commute so the idiots around me piss me off. I’ve also been living in WS for almost 2 decades now so I’m not a recent transplant or anything)

    In short, knock it off. Leave the fireworks to the professionals and if you’re not willing to? GTFO of Seattle city limits to set off your noise makers.

    So J242 did I say I was letting off fireworks as you commented, no I did not “The city already puts on a hell of a lot better fireworks show than you or any dozen people could hope to so why not appreciate it and let the rest of us get some sleep?!!?”
    PS…I’m a 55 yr old man and fireworks have been going off as far back as I can remember, do I like them, no, do they keep me awake at night, yes sometimes but they’ll probably keep going off until the day I leave this earth so I can either ignore them or let my inner sole dwell on them and turn into a grumpy old man, what do you think?

    Seems like a very defeated attitude. Why? I don’t understand that. Public nuisances that a lot of people vocally dislike and want to end can be stopped. If 1 house on a block throws loud ragers every night, the police can step in with fines to address the problem. The same can be done with fireworks.

    “so I can either ignore them or let my inner sole dwell on them and turn into a grumpy old man, what do you think?”

    There’s a third option, work to get real enforcement of the issue. SPD could make a serious dent in their operating budget for the year in just two nights by ticketing anyone they see lighting anything bigger than sparklers. Set off a role of black-cats? That’s $5K. Set off mortar shells? That’s $5K for each round.

    Taking a no-holds-barred approach for just one year would drive so much news everyone would know about it and maybe, just maybe, they’d drive or catch a bus south for the the 1-3 miles to WC/Burien to set them off instead. You know, where it’s actually legal? Here in my neighborhood during New Year’s the idiots across the street were setting off larger rockets (not penny-bottle rockets but not mortars) AT cars. SPD didn’t do anything about it even though I said I had video of them doing it repeatedly. That’s offensive. It shouldn’t take a serious accident before this changes but it’s only a matter of time before one of these tools sets a forest fire, or causes a car accident, or physically injures someone. Why is that an acceptable risk?

    what a great idea… if only they would take neighbor’s pictures as evidence …
