The state of Sao Paulo in Brazil has come up with a novel idea to fight crime; they have sent a retired police officer out on the streets dressed as Batman! Andre Luiz Pinheiro who is 50 years old is helping police patrol the rough high in crime streets of Taubate dressed as the superhero.
The idea isn’t as crazy as it first sounds as the purpose is to connect batman with the police in order to give the children the difference between good and bad characters.
The streets of Taubate have the highest crime rate in the area, drug trafficking being amongst them. The idea was thought up by the police themselves and Warley Takeo who is a Police captain reckons the long term benefits could be very beneficial.
Good luck and let’s hope the good guys win.
