It may sound like something out of the pages of a comic book, but in this day and age, I’d believe anything.
What do you do when your city’s leaders give up? What happens when liberal-run parts of the country completely shut down? Thanks to the corruption and incompetence of Democrats, many major American cities are overrun with crime.
Police departments are overworked and underfunded. Worse, the city deliberately hired incompetent officers to patrol the streets. Or, corrupt liberal policies make it impossible for the few good cops to do their jobs. The end result is a city weighed down by crime.
That’s when people must take matters into their own hands. And in one liberal city, a self-described Batman is doing just that.
From Sacramento CBS:
A civilian superhero of sorts in Stockton is at it again. He calls himself Stockton’s Batman.
He’s a father of two and a local business owner. The latest citizen’s arrest was caught on camera.
The video shows the vigilante detaining a man he claims is smoking crystal meth, outside a busy 99 Cents Only Store.
Stockton’s Batman won’t use his real name or show his face. But told CBS13, that he’s nabbed hundreds of alleged criminals at the same Stockton Shopping Center.
“They’re criminals in to which point they’re committing crimes in front of my eyes,” he said…
The incidents range from a suspected arsonist, with a document of the charges filed against her, to suspected shoplifters at the same 99 Cent store he frequents, with his own small children…
“He’s doing a pretty good service for us he’s you know getting em where the police aren’t,” a witness said.
“That’s pretty cool anything to get more crime stopped in Stockton,” said another Stockton resident.
This crime-fighter isn’t wearing a mask or using special gadgets, but is protecting his identity. According to reports, he’s stopped hundreds of crimes. When the police refuse to act, this “Batman” sweeps into action.
It looks like the locals appreciate his actions as well. When the cops refuse to do anything, who else can you turn to? This man is putting his life on the line to make Stockton a better city. Perhaps the city’s leaders can learn a thing or two.
Don’t be surprised if this becomes a trend. Too many cities suffer from corruption and a lack of leadership. It’s only a matter of time when citizens say “Enough is enough.”
