Re: Doesn't Section 8 pay the rent??
I get that its illegal, and yes i have called the police. I think thats why people get so aggravated, they dont understand why few if anyone is ever held accountable. I dont call when its a few firecrackers, i call usually when i have two jittery 65 lb dogs jumping on my lap. The police get dozens of calls during the days when it goes on and on, the problem is that the ones shooting off the big stuff are back at it in a minute and a half after the officer drives off if that. Dumb ass people that use the rent money to buy fireworks arent going to let a drive by, "Hey knock if off" by the police to stop them. The drunker they get the more defiant they get also. I understand that its a delicate situation but each year they are able to get away with it, the next year it just gets worse and goes on for a longer time. The past 3 or 4 years have just been really bad. I can admit that if it didnt freak my dogs out i wouldnt care what any of them did because im late anyway, but others that work an evening shift have to deal with it also. Like i said before, even if the village or cities (this is not an isolated problem) would tell people, we will give you a few days to get it out of your system, then we are going to start fining people, i think that would be a decent compromise.
Its not fair to the police to have to drive around and baby sit these drunken idiots, the dispatcher last year was getting overwhelmed with calls. Some people will love it and some people will really hate it, but i think the officers need to be told during the crazy times this year, dont play with the biggest offenders.
