    "It wasn't until we caught it on tape that we realized the magnitude of what they were actually talking about," said Sgt. Warehime. "The sound is almost deafening. You can't describe it. Seeing it on tape without hearing the sound doesn't do it justice."

    Videotape taken at 3:34 a.m. on April 23 does show a flash of light that lasts a fraction of a second and lights up an area the size of a football field in the middle of the night.

    The flash on the tape is accompanied by loud boom that sounds like a crack of electricity or lightning.

    it turns out it was some irate old man pissed at his neighbors, armed with fireworks, and a low-rent psyops tactics.

    That's how police met Mackler, who apparently confessed to creating the disturbance. Inside his home, investigators found quantities of drugs, guns and fireworks. Police say he had been having problems with neighbors in the building.

    "He would get up in the middle of the morning, around 2 o'clock, fire one of these pyrotechnic devices and be done," Hill said.

    And he would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those meddling kids.

    This is a lovely story. I hope more things like it happen in the near future.

    This is so quaint for Baltimore. The city has gotten mean to me and my friends.


    you're near Pikesville? I'm from Frederick, but my pals are right on MLK, the stadium, and the hospital (not JH).
