Fireworks are not for everybody
Not everyone likes fireworks, some people really dislike them. That's fair enough, but one husband and wife team from Kilmarnock in Scotland went a bit too far to show his displeasure.
James and Sandra Howat-Hurst's young neighbours were enjoying their New Years Eve fireworks and having a small party with a few friends when James went "flip mode", or, had a "Rambo moment" after learning that the police refused to do anything about the fireworks going off on New Years Eve, like the cops can do anything about it anyway?
Armed with an air rifle, a pistol and a homemade firebomb the pair commando stormed into their neighbours garden and began terrorising the guests, waving their guns in the air and threatened the group by lighting a bottle of methylated spirits and waving it their faces. The bottle was then launched onto the roof of the mansion house and burst aflame.
Not satisfied with this level of mayhem, James then threatened the crowd again that he was going to open fire, before cracking or "pistol whipping" another party-goer around the head with the butt of his rifle.
He and his wife then "legged it" back to the safety of their own home, to await the inevitable SWAT team that surrounded the property and took the couple into custody.
Just another quiet night in Kilmarnock, Scotland.
The lesson here is that not everyone loves fireworks as much as you do. Be considerate to your neighbours and always tell them in advance that you are having a fireworks display. Let us all enjoy fireworks safely and responsibly and enjoy them for years to come. And try not to petrol bomb next doors house and beat people with guns if you can avoid it.
