So…this one is beyond stupid.
The LAPD seized a bunch of illegal fireworks around town in anticipation of the 4th of July weekend (because the people of Los Angeles can’t be trusted with fireworks).
So then they went to detonate all the fireworks.
In a truck that was parked in the middle of the road.
And they didn’t bother evacuating the area.
So, guess what happened.
At least 17 people were injured in this nonsense. As of now, no one is dead, thank goodness.
While watching this video break down how this happened, keep in mind that the reason that fireworks are illegal in LA is because they could go off and hurt someone.
So the answer is to put them all together and set them off at once in the middle of town.
Government just knows better than you, folks.
