"... What I was doing was not seen the way I wanted it to be seen. I understand it was (expletive) timing and everything. I get that."

Oh, now you get that. Maybe you should try Spider-Man, nobody's afraid of him.

Unlawful possession of handcuffs? That's a crime? Boy is my wife going to be upset about that.

If I ever flip out I'm going to dress in my suit and tie while I go on my killing spree. Spread the fear to every white collar working man in America.

Where the hell was he when the Joker was attacking?

so the police are now rounding up "real" super heroes and arresting them because what James Holmes did? What if that was his super-villain plan all along? Once the heroes are off the streets, no one will be able to oppose the Legion of Doom from taking over the world!

"A MAN has been arrested for showing up at a store dressed in a batman-like costume with customers fearing for their lives."

Wow. That is some serious headline media derp.

The scary thing is, that's exactly the sort of crazy plan the Joker would come up with.

If they outlaw Batman costumes, only outlaws will have Batman costumes.

/got nothing
//isn't this a repeat anyway?

Did like every flucking body forget that the shooter called himself the Joker and that Batman is the Joker's enemy? WTF

The Home Depot needs TSA.

Except this was Australia, which might explain why he thought it was okay to dress like that a few weeks after the shooting in a different country. Also should be reason for Egoy3k's wife to stop worrying.

The report missed the most important bit of information - whether he used the gravely Batman voice to offer people assistance.

Storm's coming. Storm windows, aisle 12.

Seeing as the Keene Act hasn't been passed, being a mask is still legal, so they had to hit him with the rules on the books, no matter how obscure.

/obscure?
//I hope not.

americans in suits with ties have been robbing, raping and killing americans (and brown people abroad) for a really long time. i think people are immune by now.

We had a costume party on the 28th of last month that we had been planning for months. We had Batmen and Jokers alike, in public, and no one gave a shiat.

C'mon, it's the second sentence in the article:

Matthew Argintar, 23, came to a Home Depot store in Mansfield Township, Burlington County, New Jersey, in the US...

So do respirators count under masks? I have a half face respirator with HEPA filters I like to wear when I mow the lawn. Am I going to get shot because I like to breath cleanly?

Actually I did. But I was too embarrassed for everyone to bring it up.

Not at all. Roach-like public servants overreact to justify their jobs, pretend to be busy, act like schiool administrators.

Considering it happened in the 3rd world reigon called New Jersey, I'm amazed they didnt gun him down

I predict that "a while" is going to be "twenty or thirty years" at least.

My bad - I assumed an Australian news site reported Australian news.

Now is the time for law enforcement in thsi great nation to once again, step up to the plate and carp themselves publicly.

As should every citizen.

When we, as a nation, fear men in leotards, the tourists have wunz.
 
2012-08-07 12:27:23 PM
I didn't think there were Home Depots down under.

Checked the site and they're in USA, Canada, Mexico, and China.

A Bane henchman tried to pass himself off as Nightwing and was shocked that it didn't work?


Imbecile.

Rush out and rent your Batman, Bane, or Joker* costume for Halloween now. They'll be out of stock by the end of August. You know I'm right.

With any luck, the looney toons will think that all the Batmen and Jokers wandering around on October 31 is a Kenyan Muslin UNO Invasion and freak out, thus showing their hand prematurely.

*Why not piss off Republicans this year? Wear a Bane costume with a Romney mask or a Bane Mask with a suit. You may have to explain the Bane idea. Republicans are not going to the movies lately because it's all a giant leftist plot.

Wasn't the costume, it was the fake religion on the census.

Don't give in to fear. Because he's the hero Home Depot deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So they'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not their hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight.
 
2012-08-07 01:01:24 PM
Next they will start arresting anyone who wears a Guy Fawkes mask.
 
2012-08-07 01:07:20 PM
Does it count as a repeat if it a foreign paper carrying the same story that appeared in fark?

it's why we have the TSA molesting toddlers to ensure they don't have a bomb in their diapers.

WTF are tactical pants? You mean cargo pants?

I wear those farkers all the time. They come in handy any time you are tired of carrying something. And I hide movie snacks in there.

Or we could just fire all the insane cops who arrest people in situations like this.

Yeah, just like how the BBC only reports on British news.
