Brazilian Batman Fights Crime In The Real World

Ever think about dressing up as a vigilante and fighting crime in your spare time? This next guy took those dreams a step further, he didn't just think about it, he decided to take action in his neighborhood.

This particular Batman is a retired police officer in a small city in Brazil. Although he doesn't actually beat up criminals, he is part of the neighborhood watch which is backed by the local police station. His new job is to show local kids who may one day turn to a life of crime, that positive role models exist. Police officers are trying to become associated with batman because in Brazil, many people, have a negative image of the police, which is why it's important for superheroes like Batman to teach kids the difference between the good guys and the bad guys.
