In Honor of the Fourth of July, Here's the NYPD Blowing Up Over 5,000 Pounds of Confiscated Fireworks [Video]

The NYPD claims it has confiscated over five thousand pounds of illegal fireworks so far this year, from pyrotechnics to sparkers. Of course, the best way to destroy the evidence is to blow it all up in one big pile, which is exactly what the NYPD did a few days ago at a firing range in the Bronx. You’d think they would’ve waited a few days in order to align with the holiday.
