Excuse me for saying so, but your idea sounds, well, kinda dumb.
Wanna make a difference? Go hunt crooked cops and politicians. You'll never run out of work.
The reason i say it's dumb:
The cops get a call, from you, telling them that there's a mugger tazered and hogtied behind the bus bench on the 400 block of Hooker Dr. Cops show
up, find a guy tied up, and nothing more. Not even EVIDENCE.
So, unless you got a team of lawyers in your silly little "A-team" van and you're willing to show up in court everyday in your silly kevlar cape
and testify, i see the cops and the judges letting your victims go.
You said yourself the cops won't do anything, do you think that just because some dumbass "superhero" left an ALLEGED criminal tied up somewhere
that the cops are gonna haul the SUSPECT in without EVIDENCE or WITNESSES, just because some anonymous masked man in a halloween costume called and
To be effective you need to forget the tazer and get yourself a good gat. When you find the "bad guy" (determiened by YOUR judgement?) riddle his
ass with bullets. That would be somewhat effective in reducing the crime rate by about .5% or so.
Also, how many crimes are committed in Chicago every day? Even if you worked 24/7 without sleeping, you can still only be at one place at a time.
While you're tying up some poor crackhead in a back alley, there'd still be 100 other crimes going on right that second. You think you'd really
be effective? There's how many cops out there supposedly fighting crime, armies of cops, yet they can't stop crime, and that's their job as a
LARGE organization with tons of manpower.
Sure, you'll argue that the system is broken, and the cops allow the criminals to commit crime, yet you want to call up the cops who are part of the
same broken system and let them deal with the guy you left tied up? What makes you think the same cops who wouldn't arrest the same criminals they
supposedly let get away "because he's a good guy when her's not drunk" are going to arrest and prosecute some random tied up dude on the basis of
an anonymous phone call from "Captain Chicago" or whatever you call yourself.
You'd make a bigger positive difference in the world of you brought a pot of soup and some paper plates to the park everyday and fed the homeless and
poor with your 10 million dollars. For $20 a day you can make a HUGE pot of soup and even some rice on the side to go with it, bring it down the
park, and make sure everyone gets enough to eat. With 10 million dollars you could feed the hungry in your community for about 1,370 years before
you'd need to start accepting donations.
Hell, even better, teach a free self defense course to the inner city residents who are likely to be victimized, you've got enough martial arts
skills, and finding a place to use as a dojo would be a lot cheaper and easier than finding, securing, and defending your "batcave".
Also, lessening the effectiveness of your planned tactics, is that the cops will have to take time out of fighting crime to find out who the idiot is
that keeps leaving ALLEGED criminals tied up all over town and running around untying them. You'd be a distraction to the few cops out there who
actually do their job and believe in their work.
With that said,,, Good Hunting!
