Earlier today, I wrote about the Popp brothers, who started the devastating Patrick Cudahy fire during a night of barbeque and fireworks. Thanks to an astute reader, I’ve come upon some thoughts from Kevin Fischer, legislative aide to one of Wisconsin’s worst legislators, who seems to think lighting up the sky with fireworks, as the Popp brothers were doing on the night they started the Patrick Cudahy fire, is perfectly acceptable behavior, nevermind the fact that it’s illegal:
Franklin filled with criminals

Plenty in my neighborhood the past few days.
They ignored city ordinances.
They defied state statutes.
Right out in the open.
Lighting up the sky.
I’m assuming no busybodies called the Franklin police to complain. There wasn’t a squad car armed with tickets in sight.
As it should be.
I always had Fischer pegged as a “law and order” type of guy, but I guess when it comes to fireworks, he fully supports breaking the law.
What I’m wondering is if Kevin Fischer has the same cavalier attitude towards fireworks in the aftermath of the Patrick Cudahy fire.
