Batman Arrested in Tampa

This story is actually news to me because:

1. I live down here.
2. He's really a decent guy. Quiet type.
3. I was down there along with a zillion other people when this all took place so I saw it "go down".

Cops down here apparently aren't too busy these days.

I'm glad to know that it WASN'T Adam West, but just some yutz who likes to dress as the Batman when he goes to gay bars.

Think about it - when you see Batman on Gotham City TV, he is usually standing next to a criminal. On the other hand, when you see the Penguin on TV, he is surrounded by law enforcement officials. Batman wears a mask, and we don't know who he really is - maybe he is a muslin terrorist. Batman cannot be trusted!!

Part A: Excellent point!

Part B: Muslin terrorist? LOL, what about a cotton terrorist? Or a polyester one? The velour terrorist would be nice and fuzzy, maybe we should keep him around.

Sorry, couldn't resist :)

"Tampa police arrested Walsh Ian Nichols, 21, for violating a state law that forbids wearing a mask on a public right of way, a statute written in the 1950s apparently aimed at the hooded Ku Klux Klan."

That sounds incredibly lame. Are Tampa police really that bored?

Apparently. A lot of places have laws against wearing masks in public, I guess because people only wear masks, as we all know, to hide their identity when they're going to break the law. That's why this guy is wearing a bat mask that only covers half his face and goes around letting everybody know who he is.

From the article: "You have to wonder, the police spokeswoman said, why someone would choose to conceal his face."

Gee, I dunno. Maybe because he's dressed as Batman.

But I think you'll be just fine if you paint your face, say white and red.
AHAHAHAHA HEheHEheHEEE!

I have to wonder why someone would try to hide their identity by wearing glasses and acting like a geeky reporter.

Why I am I not surprised this happened in Florida I mean it just happens to be the one place where it seems all the crooked law enforcement goes.

The eye patch i wear when grocery shopping conceals part of my face - wonder if that would give me in trouble.

I am curious, is the eye patch for functional reasons or for decorative reasons?

Wow, Tampa must be a wonderfully crime free area, if local police don't have any real work to do! Plenty of extra time to harass people for dumb reasons.

Functional - I can't have both eyes exposed to flickering light at the same time -and that includes things like have a ceiling fan near the light, or a freezer light blinking on and off.

Come january I probably won't need as much when out because then I won't be exposed to all those blinking halloween, christmas decoration and sale lights around every corner in the store
