So you've paid all your taxes, don't break any Laws and the establishment isn't prepared to help you. I don't think you'll be the only one in this situation !

Doesn't seem fair but thats modern Britain for you.

Being a big kid at heart and a traditionalist I would hate to see the end of bonfire night but I'm sick of kids setting them off in the streets for a month either side of Nov 5 It does not help having a dog that is terrified of the sound of them, 6 stone of quivering jelly sitting on my lap every night as soon as he hears the first bang

Didn't any of you guys mess with fireworks when you where Kids?

I know I did.

You can't blame kids for messing around with this stuff, the blame lies firmly with legislation and shops selling to underage people and the age limit set too low.

Kids being Kids will experiment with anything they can get their hands on.

This isn't experimentation, it's attempted murder.
Last year these little b**tards were responsible for a bloke being dragged out of his car and kicking his teeth out after he asked them to move so he could park it.
They are also responsible for regularly all the smashing car mirrors off round here and keying all the cars-hence the damage to mine.

They come from one (rented) house where the drunken slut of a mother is never there except to pick up her benefits then goes back to shag whichever dealer she's shacked up with this time-they are alone for 5 nights out of 7. There's usually 10-20 of them there as they use it as a meeting place.

We all messed around with them. I hope none of us tried firing them at people and cars.

So your dealing with hardened criminals then. The law doesn't know how to deal with that sort. If they do actually get done they'll probably get a free holiday to Euro Disney to watch massive firework displays.

I have been in this sort of situation with large gangs of kids outside my last house, when they built some shops on some green land opposite. It was horrible and I understand how nerve wracking it can be. I tried confronting them myself but it seldom did any good.
What helped for the time I had to put up with them was that I got friendly with the local hard family. Never got any problem after that.
In the end I was lucky enough to get a job at the other end of the country so I could pick a better place to live.
If the same thing started to happen again I wouldn't hesitate in moving. I think its the only way if you want to keep your sanity and not end up getting in trouble yourself. Trouble is its expensive to move and it means they have won.
