Unless the containers are screened at Matson by BATF agents, the fireworks will be the same as always. HPD, Matson employees, and US Customs haven't been able to catch anyone. They don't even find a homeowner having a forty-foot long container delivered to his home once a year, as suspicious. I just hope Al Queda doesn't figure this incompetence out.

They already know what goes on, just as they know that stolen cars are shipped off island in Matson containers, and where cars are stripped. Same with burglary and pawn shops, chickenfights, gambling, drug shipments, and prostitution. It simply a matter of who gets paid. Honest cops can't squeal on dishonest cops. So, feds with no local ties have to get involed. So, my outlook on the matter of fireworks is that nothing is going to change. There's a lot more money in NOT fixing anything.

I replied the same thing on another thread about fireworks. They actually said on the news that there is no way for them to catch or detect dozens of containers a year. There are basically telling the world they can't detect containers full of explosives.
I know us talking about it isn't to bright either but our security needs to be changed and your right about the criminal faction. It is time for the major agencies to start shutting down these "groups".

I beg to differ - fireworks in the hands of professionals are ok. In the hands of the masses, they are a recipe for terrorism and disaster.
