Happy Fourth of July From the NYPD


Yesterday morning, the NYPD set off around 5,000 lbs. of confiscated fireworks at a firing range in the Bronx. If a New York City police officer took your bottle rockets, M80s, mortars or tunguska blast, take solace in knowing that your fireworks fulfilled their destiny and totally got exploded. Hats off to the NYPD on this one; this is way cooler than just submerging them in water. [NYT via Gawker]
