Halloween Fuel Restrictions

In the city of Detroit you can't buy gasoline (in a portable container) from 12:00 a.m today until 11:59 p.m on Monday, October 31st. They do this to ward off firebugs on Devil's Night. 

Does your city do anything similar or do you know of another place where they restrict gasoline?

Shit, I say let them. Maybe they'll stop finding bodies in abandoned buildings if they weren't there to begin with.

I'm Detroit, I'm sure it's for a completely different reason.

A lot of people agree and I do too to an extent. The problem is people live right next door to those abandoned homes and they're close together so fire spreads like crazy.

I know. I'm not really sure if this stops anything.

Detroit has sadly become the bunhole of the US as has Chicago. Wasn't Obama an Illinois Senator? Thought so. Way to help out the inner cities Mr. President. Fucking loser.

Chicago "wins" some weeks when it comes to the death tally every Monday. Not something to be proud of. :(

Of course it doesn't. Criminals will find a way. Anyone intent on setting fires on Halloween is just going to buy their gas before the deadline and store it, or like left.drowning said, use other means.
