I have to ask: how many of all you people out there cry and whine about being around smokers, then celebrate the 4th of July voluntarily and excitedly smothering yourselves with fireworks smoke all night-wiping your eyes and choking on the clouds of sulfur and gunpowder?

And look forward to it all again NEXT YEAR?

Talk about fork-tongue, two-faced, double-standard,

And about the dummy who blew himself up and the girlfriend who defends him: he may be a smart businessman and own 2 more stores, but I constantly see people who are book smart but common sense stupid. They're the one's excellent at academics, but can't tie their own shoelaces.

Things like this happen for the survival of the human species. Call it evolution.

First off everyone makes mistakes in life Thank GOD that he will live to learn from this mistake. Many others do not!! So Many of you people are too quick to judge as judgement only satisfies yourself. As someone who is personally acquanted with the family- They are suffering tremendously. So those who are calling him a dumbass and stupid missourian- What if that were your son, nephew, cousin, brother or a friend. Lets see how many of you would be trash talking then.

What part of "Fireworks are Illegal in Blue Springs" didn't you understand? Now you understand why.

Two words, "anger management". Be careful of what you post, your last partial sentence could be considere 'assault', ie. communicating the offer of violence... the implication being that with the posting of an address, you would want to speak with this person face to face & kick his backside....
Why aren't governments charged with assault for "communicating offers of violence"? We hear that from them on a daily basis on the evening news.
Now thats funny

I know these idiots. They live in my neighborhood, they live in your neighborhood, they live everywhere. They're loud obnoxious self centered kids that have no concern for those living around them. They run trashy houses, won't mow their yards, have like people over at all hours, laughing and hooting at the neighbors that give them a dirty look. Even "daring" them at times to a confrontation. Well, for once what goes around came around. I can only hope now that they are charged federally for their blatant disregard of safety. For all you bleeding hearts that are posting here, invite them to live on your block PLEASE!!!

Its funny? Really? A young kid is missing his hand because of mistake...You dont think he knows that he has made a terrible mistake? He doesnt need you, or anyone else rubbing it in. You wouldnt like this kind of attack on your friends or family would you? I think I speak for all of his friends and family when I say, Show some respect. We would really appriciate it. Thank you.

I am so sorry that he is going through this. Everyone does make mistakes - big or small - they are made! This is something that he can learn from and get another chance at life. I know this guy and he is very smart and a great person! I just saw him last week and cannot believe this happened to him. For all you trash talkers who have NO RESPECT just remember karma is a bit** and one day it will be your turn. I don't wish something like this upon my worst enemy, but you should show some compassion and respect for him. If this happened to someone you know - a son, friend, brother, etc. you would want some freaking support from others! If you don't know who this happened to then keep yuou mouth shut if you dont have anything nice to say! Thanks and I pray for a quick healing!
