Brazilian Military Police Hire Real Life Batman To Fight Crime

Brazilian Military Police Hire Real Life Batman To Fight Crime

Seriously! In an effort to tackle the crime ridden streets of Brazil, military police have hired a former soldier who will don the outfit of Batman while tackling crime.

The lads over at Bleeding Cool have spotted a story posted on Brazilian news website, Ovale. Apparently, Brazilian military police have hired retired soldier André Luiz Pinheiro, 50, to help combat crime in some of the most crime riddled city neighbourhoods. The twist? He happens to be a major comic book fan who dresses up as Batman for children's birthday parties and will patrol the streets dressed as the Caped Crusader.

This is all part of a program set up by UAPC (Advanced Community Policing Unit) and it hasn't yet been decided what exactly his duties will be, although local residents are happy with the plans. 52 year old housewife Fatima Ferreira said, "Children do not have space or where leisure and play. Is this a good project to have such a great character. Will help rescue the values ​​that are lost here." [Quote Translated Using Google Chrome]

what the [frick]!
goldeagle07 - 3/8/2012, 8:53 AM
This sounds pretty cool but some one get him a better Bat-Suit without the Clooney nipples, please.
luffycapri - 3/8/2012, 8:55 AM
where did he get that suit , it looks like the one that was used in forever ?
ShadowOfTheWeb - 3/8/2012, 8:56 AM
Haha they went for the one with the nipples.
LucasMend - 3/8/2012, 8:56 AM
WTF, lmao never heard of this stuff. And I doubt that the residents are happy with it, they're just enjoying being interviewed :P. What city is this btw? I wonder what city is here is so idiotic to "hire" a batman guy to do this
Fogs - 3/8/2012, 8:58 AM
hehehe, it's just relevant to say that he'll not patrol the streets of Taubaté (city of the countryside of São Paulo state) or anything like that. He'll be more some kind of police PR, on campaigns called something like "movement for peace", helpiing the integration between the police force and that community.

But noone's gonna respect a Batman who wears the bat-nipples.
ArthurNumeriano - 3/8/2012, 8:58 AM
@Lucaxmen It's Taubaté.
THORGodOfThunder - 3/8/2012, 8:59 AM
THE [frick]???
RorMachine - 3/8/2012, 8:59 AM
If he walks into a Favela dressed like that he will leave minus his cowl with his head still in it!
Fogs - 3/8/2012, 8:59 AM
Kids will get under his bat-cape to see if he has that bat-thong like in Schumacher's movies.

Waiting for someone to become Joker to counter it lmao
superotherside - 3/8/2012, 9:06 AM

NextHero08 - 3/8/2012, 9:07 AM
This is so cool. But 50? dude, your pushin into Batman Beyond territory, wont be long b4 he snaps his hip and quits.
bbarber2323 - 3/8/2012, 9:07 AM

ThreeBigTacos - 3/8/2012, 9:08 AM

C'mon Gusto everybody knows you were just his butler

Benjamitesandwich - 3/8/2012, 9:14 AM
As much as this is screwed up, this guy seems boss. He has inspired me to dress as Captain Planet to help the better-hood of man.
2gold - 3/8/2012, 9:15 AM
I'm Bat...BAM....CSI called in to scoop up Batguts from bullet to face.

Because in the comics, the villains never seemed to aim for the big facial opening. Real life? Yeah, they'll find it.
themayer88 - 3/8/2012, 9:19 AM
this guy's gonna get killed in like 2 days.
GodzillaKart - 3/8/2012, 9:19 AM
@yossarian: That about sums it up!
batfan175 - 3/8/2012, 9:19 AM
that's it. the world has definitely gone insane.
loki668 - 3/8/2012, 9:20 AM
I hope the suit has real body armor, or we'll be reading his obituary very soon.

Lord Loki has spoken
GodzillaKart - 3/8/2012, 9:20 AM
Reality check: Sure, you suspend disbelief in the comics, but can you imagine getting in a fight wearing a cowl and a cape?! You would be blind and tripped up instantly. One instant ass kicking coming up.
loki668 - 3/8/2012, 9:23 AM
Some criminal is going to grab those "bat-ears" and sling his ass into traffic, while laughing about the nipples.

Lord Loki has spoken
thanos83 - 3/8/2012, 9:24 AM

Kayo - 3/8/2012, 9:26 AM
the military really put the man's life at risk.
GUNSMITH - 3/8/2012, 9:30 AM
triggerleo - 3/8/2012, 9:30 AM
I bet someone is going to get sued by DC for this. Trademark infringment just like the company that makes custom Batcars.
Kayo - 3/8/2012, 9:31 AM
todays brand of loudspeaker used KEVLAR material, why not for this guy instead of a rubber?
GUNSMITH - 3/8/2012, 9:32 AM
HughJasol - 3/8/2012, 9:36 AM
He gon' get murdered.
Kayo - 3/8/2012, 9:37 AM
times like this........we need LISA ANN, VANILLA DEVILLE or EVA ANGELINA's gifs.
TheBurnSays - 3/8/2012, 9:40 AM
Huh... you guys don't seem to realise that he's probably just gonna speak to kids in schools and visit homeless shelters. No law enforcement community would be dumb enough to think this could work. Speeches and handshakes, that's it.

LucasMend - 3/8/2012, 9:46 AM

LucasMend - 3/8/2012, 9:48 AM

hartley07 - 3/8/2012, 9:56 AM

thewolfx - 3/8/2012, 9:56 AM

Connerkentver1 - 3/8/2012, 10:17 AM
This shit is unbelievable. But is this any different than Phoenix Jones and his little band of rapscallions up in Seattle? The Brazilians should at least give this dude a Tumbler, and some real goddamned body armor. Someone get a Kickstarter on this now for some Nolan DKR armor!
