Re: [MPD-5D] Community Crime Summary for 5D
I wish we could get such service here on July 4th, where Myrtle Avenue , and Clinton and Walnut Streets intersect.
For the past three years, my neighbors and I have complained about Mt. Rainier , MD residents in SUV's, pickup trucks, vans, and campers, taking over that intersection with their illegal fireworks. The intersection is the located three blocks for Mt. Rainier and is quite large. Walnut Street is hilly and provides a great view and safe distance from the fireworks AND the seemingly 30-ish men/males/idiots igniting them. The crowd has grown larger each year. The streets are actually blocked by their vehicles and spectators seated in chairs. The males ignite the fireworks in the middle of the intersection. It’s like a tailgate party gone wild. Last year, they began gathering about 9pm.
We videotaped last years' takeover and submitted it to the Mayor's office, which may have been the inspiration to ban fireworks in the city. You could hear the rockets hitting the metal awning on our homes. Neighbors on Monroe Street mentioned finding firework debris in their backyards. We would have called the police, but because the smoke was so thick, we feared for the officers' safety. I could not see my next-door neighbor's home, only the porch light, which was also captured on video.
