I have two issues. Why do the law enforcement officials allow this to happen every year? A law which is not really a law.

I was told that so many people say they do it to celebrate the holiday. "What holiday?" I asked. They said, "Independence Day." I replied, "Independence from what?" They either said, "I don't really know," or they said independence from slavery. If they are going to celebrate with fireworks, they at least should know the reason.
