This story killed me inside.

Lenny Robinson, aka the "Baltimore Batman", spent many years brightening up the lives of children in hospitals. He dressed up as Batman and customized his Lamborghini to look like the Batmobile and would take children for rides in it. A dashcam video of a police officer pulling him over became quite a sensation in 2012. He spent $25,000, each year, to buy sick children some toys. He encouraged them to pull through their ailments (many were terminal), talked to them about friendship, gave speeches against bullying, and more. He was their "Batman" and "hero", and a good man to his family and community.

“He was my brother, my business partner, my best friend,” Scott Robinson said. “He touched a lot of lives and made a lot of kids smile. That’s all he wanted to do.”

He was killed earlier today (8/17/15) in a car accident on the freeway.

Here is the website he ran. You can contact his family through it and see more about who he was and what he stood for.

RIP lenny

I learned of his commitment to bettering others lives several years ago after reading an article online. Mr. Robinson's life is a testament of the impact one person can have on others in a positive way, and how mission-driven he was to make sick children's lives a little better through his actions and words.

Rest easy in your journey Lenny, and Godspeed.

I truly believe this will inspire more than those kids.

Thanks for sharing this story, Taterhead.

And on the same day that Donald Trump proclaimed "I am Batman" to a little boy...

This universe is strange and sad, man.

Bless you Lenny.

Sad, sad story. The world actually needs guys like this, too. I hope that his organization continues on with his work.

i remember hearing about him at least a few years ago maybe 2012?
he was bringing a sense of wonder to the world that was much needed, especially for those children.
we need more people like him.

It seems like the good always die young. The world lost a beautiful person. I'm sure God reserved a special place in heaven for him. RIP Lenny Robinson.

What a great role model this guy was ... He was exactly what a super hero should be...helping those less fortunate

And in this case it is so true.

I was gonna drop in with a Batman vs Superman joke in another thread posted after this one, but this guy was a true hero in the eyes of the kids he loved to support so on second thought he deserves some respect. Below is my comment from the other thread.

Yeah, this is sad news.

I was just reading about this a few mins ago on Gawker.

Not only did he do this for the kids with his own money, he also started a company with like minded individuals to create a Justice League of sorts to go around and help cheer up other children.

I hate when bad things happen to good people.

Very sad to hear this news... What a real man he was, everything for the children. He was a real role model. I pray someone else with the money has a heart and continues what this great man started. I will look forward to shaking his hand at the wedding of the Lamb.

What a good man, I' am lost for words at the moment.

As others have posted, the good ones always go first.

I've wondered if maybe they are taken sooner because they've grown enough as a soul to move on to the next level, like Batman here.
