Illegal Fireworks in San Francisco
Mayor, London Breed
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors
Sheriff, Paul Miyamoto
Starting in early May, the city of San Francisco has been ravaged by incessant illegal fireworks with increasing frequency. They are being discharged at all hours of the day and night. Some are so large they shake buildings and windows blocks away. We, the citizen signatories of this petition implore you, the elected public officials of our city to take swift action to blunt the escalating epidemic of illegal fireworks immediately. We believe that deference such as larger fines, community service, etc may be in order. Also, we believe that reactive approaches to this problem as currently employed are failing and proactive approaches which may include surveillance or stationing police assets in hot spots would be more effective.
