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.

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.

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

                     The 2016 Rugby Union Six Nations - the safer and                                                    more reliable alternative to sleeping pills.

 

                        (Hull FC are top of the Super league, btw)

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.
