When is a law not a law? When it is not enforced. Such is the case with fireworks. I thought that fireworks were illegal within the city limits of Everett, They may be illegal but certainly not enforced.
I write this at 11: p.m. Saturday, amidst cannon, rockets and everything else, and it still sounds like a battlefield as it has for the past several hours. Fellow citizens who live near the Beverly Lake area will know from where I speak.
I get it that the police have more important things to do, but surprise, this is one of them, enforcing laws. Don’t the citizens have a right to live a peaceful existence? So it seems to me.
