The Columbia Police Dept. didn't do anywhere near enough to shut down the illegal fireworks displays in residential neighborhoods this weekend. They'll pull you over and hand you a ticket for 4mph over the limit, but setting off explosives? Not so much.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guesstimate that you would need to increase the police force tenfold to address all fireworks complaints that occur on the Fourth. Do you want to pay for that?
