Hahaha, this is the most ridiculous shit I have heard in a while. Seriously, waste of money.... Everything is so backwards. I bet if they legalized fire works and sold legitimate ones in stores, people wouldn't buy cheap Chinese ones and blow their faces off.

Regardless if they're for losers or not, they're still wasting valuable time/money on something that isn't that bad when compared to lots of things that go on on Long Island. Get with it.

Well, maybe "losers" is a bit over the top, but I don't see the attraction of these very annoying and dangerous fireworks. Lots of people get hurt each year and for what?

More people are hurt/killed because of drugs. They made these six arrests in a day or two and they canít do that with illegal drug suppliers.
See why people are pissed at the efforts?

I'de rather see fireworks being sold on the corner than drugs.

hopefully the dopes who set off their illegal fireworks wind up in the local ER minus a hand or even better, their face.

That will make for some good stories and forums. I love idiots who amuse me. It's better than having boring fish.

It's another case of the cops with nothing better else to do. Go do what you do best, sleep behind a local volunteer firehouse, mouch free coffee at 7-11 and harass hard working people for doing 58 mph in a 55 mph zone.

It is so insulting and racist to call them "illegal fireworks". No fireworks are "illegal". Please refer to them as "undocumented incendiary devices".

to all of the moronic posters and their convoluted reasoning, fireworks are illegal in New York! Get it? Case closed.

GREAT!! Arrest the Fools! We had one on our street 4 years ago,some fool by the name of Mike M. in Deer Park who was arrested after a two year investigation, 160 or more huge boxes, cops stated there was enough there to "Blow Up Our Neighborhood", Anyone know this jack***? Heard from a cop friend he sat on his couch and cried like a baby after he was caught! Fireworks are fine in the right hands of experts or maybe you might loose a hand or worse!

The march of the bozos is underway here. "Go after real criminals." "More people are hurt by drugs than fireworks." "It's a victimless crime." "Don't the cops have anything better to do?" Blah, blah, blah.

If only we could see the face of a stunned bozo devotee of fireworks, after his neighbor's garage stuffed with fireworks does KABOOM and this bozo devotee's house is also damaged or worse, as he turns on the neighbor with indignant rage. It would be funny if it were not so tragic.

Here's a question for you fireworks-loving bozos. If you knew your neighbor's house or garage was stuffed with fireworks, would you feel comfortable in that knowledge?
