Even though this is funny and all, their should be some sort of consciousness where if you have a child character like spiderman or something instead of arresting him/her with the costume on, make him/her take it off. The cons of seeing a friendly superhero spiderman being arrested as a kid is a lot for a kid to take in at a young age don’t you think? Or even walk with the spiderman and take him/her without handcuffs quietly without making a scene to the cruiser and take off. But then again if it’s a serious crime and he/she is dangerous and not safe around kids or people then by all means arrest him/her. But if it’s just a simple pot smoking charge or littering then take it softly.
I’m sorry but there is something so ludicrous and yet so delightfully human-crazy about a person in costume being arrested that if I were a judge I would find it hard to give a fitting sentence. I mean, look…apologies if you’ve been mugged recently by a pot smoking ninja turtle or whatever, but just look…
‘You are under arrest sir. You committed the crime.’
‘What you’ve told us is web of lies’ …ouch! Apologies again!
Think you can do better? There’s the storm trooper, a beheaded Elmo, the munchkin, the ninja turtle above…knock yourself out! 🙂
