Police charged him with being disorderly and unlawful possession of handcuffs

How the fark is it illegal to own handcuffs? You can buy them at any sporting goods store or gun shop, they sell them as toys for kids, you can buy them in the sex shop for fark sake.

§ 10-147 Possession of handcuffs, thumb-cuffs or leg irons by
unauthorized persons prohibited. a. It shall be unlawful for any person
to knowingly possess any type of handcuffs, including disposable cinch
cuffs, thumb cuffs or leg irons. This section shall not prohibit the

I was expecting a "this is what a real-live superhero might look like" picture,
instead of the "this is what a person on the ground looks like" picture.
You can barely see his mask! Much less the costume. I feel cheated.

From some googling, it sounds like you can own them, and can carry them if you have a legal purpose. The law does not articulate what constitutes a legal purpose, though I would assume it's "for any purpose other than to commit a crime".

If you saw a man dressed as Batman in a store parking lot would you call police?
No 42.42%
Yes 32.07%
I would consider it 25.51%

57% of people are easily brainwashed into fear.
Sweet.

Do they legally define a cable tie as a disposable cinch cuff? I thought they meant these:

Sounds like he wasn't so much dressed as batman as dressed in bulletproof vest and other military gear. That is a little reminiscent of the Aurora asshole, so I don't totally blame people for a little concern.

The handcuffs illegal thing is totally wtf.

How the fark is it illegal to own handcuffs? You can buy them at any sporting goods store or gun shop, they sell them as toys for kids, you can buy them in the sex shop for fark sake.


I believe they are legal as long as they are pink and lace covered. Pink and lace covered. And you have to use them with a woman! None of that gay stuff!

For fark's farking farkity sake.

WTF is wrong with people? So some dude is dressed up like Batman. So what? Some crazy does something so weird and uncommon that it major farking new, and suddenly the world is full of DC characters who want to kill you? Like someone threw open the doors to Arkham Asylum and said "have fun!"?

Anytime before the shooting, if I were to see someone dressed up like a superhero (or villian) I'd have a good chuckle and go about my day. After the shooting? Same thing. People need to stop letting panic and fear control their lives. Some crackpot terrorist rams a jetliner into a building, and suddenly every brown person you see could potentionaly explode at any second?

I truely hate all you people like this. The police arrested him on a bullshiat charge they normaly wouldn't care about just to placate all the scared sheep who are shopping for dolphin shaped mailboxes and garden gnomes. Are we going to start dogpiling every ginger we see now? Just in case they might be crazy? Sure they have no souls, but having red hair doesn't make you a potential gunman.

CSB:
in the mall one time, and this goth kid is walking by. He's all in black, has black hair, black lipstick, black boots, and a black flowing cape. As I go by I say "What up, Batman?" He hissed at me. I said "That's the spirit! make fear your weapon!" I guess he didn't want to play any more because he said "whatever, man"
 
2012-08-02 09:14:36 AM
A spokesman for the police said: "it is official policy to arrest the vigilante known as Batman on site"
