It is funny.

It's also a reflection of gang culture in the city; the Batman outfit is presumably intended to reduce the likelihood of identification and retribution.

I presume you're joking? From the photo it looks more like the effects of a night on the razz!

No, the man handed in was a wanted criminal, not someone who'd committed a crime on the night.

I live in Clayton, which you know to be a relatively quiet suburb, but we are are certainly not short of police cars here today.

Great story this. Trending on twitter allegedly.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

Don't mind folk dressing up as Batman, it's the Robins I'm not too keen on.

Yes, mea culpa. Apologies.
:huh:

I hadn't realised it happened two Sundays ago (when Bradford City were at Wembley), and not last Sunday, when people don't generally patrol the streets in superhero outfits.

Yes, the (alleged) villain asked the super-hero to give him a lift to the cop shop.
