Oak Park Fireworks
Disgusted in Oak Park

Once again I am amazed at what my taxes DON'T do for me in Oak Park. I sit in my bedroom at 11pm on July 4th listening to a war zone of fireworks that have been going off continuously since 830pm. I have no windows open but can smell the disgusting smoke from the abundance of fireworks being lit.
I thought fireworks were illegal!
So the police in Oak Park can add this to their list of non-enforcement.

It's now 12:20am and the fireworks are tapering off. I am assuming curfew must be midnight. So this means Oak Park police made a conscious decision to allow illegal activity for a specific time frame. My family now all has burning throats from the smoke filling my home.
Thanks Oak Park - it is a joy to live in your ridiculous world. I cannot wait to get out of this shameful excuse for a city that panders to the lowest elements of society.
