Police and firefighters in Alton, Illinois were attacked three seperate times by a mob at the Oakwood Housing Complex with a barrage of bottle rockets and fireworks on the 4th of July. The firefighters were called out three seperate times and were ambushed by the mob each time. The Telegraph reported, via Jammie Wearing Fool:
The confrontations began at 10:20 p.m. and within the 40 minutes it took to resolve the first incident, police were attacked three times. It started when a firetruck was dispatched to extinguish a Dumpster fire in the 700 block of Oakwood and was immediately attacked by the crowd shooting and throwing fireworks at them.
According to two police reports, Patrolman First Class Walter Wetzstein and several other officers already were on their way to the scene because of the large amounts of fireworks being set off at that location. Both reports stated that in the past, fires have been set to lure the fire department out so they could be attacked by fireworks.

Well, what do you expect from mere savages?
After a couple of attacks, I would have been tempted to come back and set a fire, myself, and not answer the alarm.
That reporter sounds drunk.
Who is the mush mouth that is narrating the story?
Suggestion for next year - turn the fire hoses on the attackers, full force. That’ll extinguish the fuses on the fireworks.
Dude sounded three sheets to the wind..
Why not just return fire...with water cannons.
I’m guessing this is a housing complex filled with vicious Scandinavian immigrants.
“in Alton, Illinois were attacked three seperate times by a mob at the Oakwood Housing Complex”
All the answers are in that one sentence.
Lay this at the feet of zeros DOJ, after the new black panthers walked what do you expect from punks
I am thinking that they should have used a few M72 laws rockets and a few 40mm grenades in response.
Just some Amish kids having some summer fun.....
Turn the hoses on the bastards.
Stupid way to have fun. They’ll need those responders when the housing project catches fire - which may not be too long.
That's exactly what the Palestinians and Islamic "youths" in Paris do. Nice company. This is America, folks.
“Both reports stated that in the past, fires have been set to lure the fire department out so they could be attacked by fireworks.
Well, then. Post signs to the effect around the 4th, that any fires set will NOT be put out. Let the savages burn there own homes down, then in the morning, find who was responsible and turn them over to their ‘buddies’. Repeat.
People who attack the fire department should not get protection. Don’t like it, move.
