I’m not a huge fan of Wal-Mart. There’s something about the lighting in there that makes me feel super aggressive. Perhaps, that’s why I think I can understand why someone might want to do something really stupid in there… like light the entire fireworks display in the middle of the store. That said, I might not do it if they were right night to the lighter fluid like whatever Jackass who did this.
It being a big store, there were of course, some security cameras in the store, ready to catch the whole thing. Both of the pyros involved were arrested and could actually face more than 20 years in prison. Amazingly, lighting off the fireworks display in Wal-Mart can be considered a class two felony, just below a murder charge in severity. If that happens, they’ll be yelling about a whole different kind of fire in the hole.
