Over the years, I've been approached by law enforcement about my 4th of July displays.
Not once did an officer confiscate, fine, or arrest me. or even give me a slap on the wrist!
Every fourth, I get approached haha.
Usually they just say stop, or move it to a safer location.
One time, 4th of July 2006.
I was doing my annual firework show, and a cop rolls up, and 2 guys get out.
They make their way into my backyard, and just stand there for like 5 mins.
Watching my uncle light off a few (I had stopped because I saw them coming)
I didn't have time to warn my uncle but, they just stood there.
After about another 5 or so, one of the cops says.
"Wow! that one was great!"
At this point everyone looks over and just stops dead cold haha.
My uncle is bent down, with a light lit, going for the fuse, frozen.
Then the cop said.
"go ahead, set it off!" to my uncle.
Which he did, blah blah blah.
These cops stayed and watched for another good 25 mins.
All they said was.
"Great stuff you guys got, happy fourth!"
It was odd, it looks like they don't care for that law, and just answered a call
to make it look like they were doing something about it haha.
I invited them back the year after, but they didn't show
