FOURTH: North End was like a war zone

Re: “July 4th sees fires, injuries” (TNT, 7-6).

I was really disappointed in the police coverage of the illegal fireworks in the North End this year. It was like a war zone trying to walk to and from the fireworks to watch near St. Patrick’s Church this year, and not one police car was anywhere to be seen.

Our poor animals were distraught until things finally settled down at 3 a.m. To have only have issued 26 citations is ridiculous. The police could have done that in a three- block radius of our house!
