re: fireworks. it's unfortunate that we have to flood 911. They are so busy fielding fireworks calls that those reporting more serious crimes will have to wait. Solution: 311 type reporting system for fireworks, regular patrols of neighborhoods, and criminal penalties for first offense. That's how it is in NYC where it is surprisingly a lot quieter than Boston. The idea of spending the night in jail and getting a criminal record might persuade them to not set them off in the first place.
