  1. We’ve had fireworks here in Antioch for over 3 weeks now …. people shooting off M80’s and bottle rockets all over town some with concussion results…… a few shattered windows. It’s not even the 4th yet! The police dispatchers are overwhelmed with calls and some neighbors are thinking that there are other ways to stop these idiots from disturbing the peace at 2 am on a worknight.
