10 Juveniles Dropping M-80's on Vehicles

I remember, in the Before Times, when people would start staking out areas on Ledbetter beach the week before Fourth of July. Giant pits were dug - I mean giant - in the sand. 6' or more deep, 10' across, and about a foot between them. Barbeques, kegs, and furniture would be moved in, and the pits would be occupied until the fireworks. In the meantime, it ended up becoming a warzone with various fireworks and M-80's being shot off from one pit into another. It was insane.

Early this week I heard what I thought was a loud gunshot near Cottage Hospital area sometime in the evening. I did call the cops to report it. Then last night I heard fireworks in the same area.

Thanks for the info. Hope they caught the kids, what a stupid, reckless thing to do. Imagine being in a car that got hit by one.

"M-80s are an American class of large powerful firecrackers, sometimes called salutes. M-80s were originally made in the early 20th century by the U.S. military to simulate explosives or artillery fire; later, M-80s were manufactured as fireworks." - Wikipedia

M-80s are similar to (if not the same thing as) cherry bombs. They are a HIGHLY explosive version of a firecracker. A long, long time ago when I was a student at La Cumbre JHS, someone threw an M-80 (or cherry bomb) into a toilet in the boys' restroom and blew it to smithereens. You do not want to mess around with M-80s. Or drop them onto freeway traffic. Someone could get killed.
