What's with all the fireworks these days?

Appreciating that we're getting to prime firework season here in the US, that aside, there has been a huge pickup of random fireworks these last few weeks in our neighborhood.

Now I'm reading that is not just here in SW Ohio - other parts of the country seem to be affected by this.

What gives here? For us it's been relentless these past 3 weeks. Every single night some idiotic brainless moron feels the need to let rip with bangers and rockets until sometimes past midnight.

The fact that all this is 100% illegal in Ohio is neither here nor there.

Anyone else getting this?

It's been relentless here in the Bay Area too. It began here right at the start of the George Floyd protests and hasn't let up. I do think there is a connection, but I find it interesting that it's so mystifying and no one can seem to explain who is actually behind it.

I know people from Allentown PA have been complaining. The part that make no sense are the people who say they are legal. Doesn't matter if they are being done when a noise ordinance is in effect. Not that it matters if no one enforces it.

I heard what I thought was fireworks this morning. Since I was driving and it was behind me, I decided to quickly get out of there. Didn't want to take a chance that it was something other than fireworks.

Undoubtedly with a nation full of bored kids out of school, the second fireworks could easily be bought, they would get busy firing them off :D
