This isn't Religion or Politics. Don't quit your day job.
I think they are good, as they serve as an example of what not to do.
The only way one should EVER do this is to be like the Punisher.
There are plenty of them on the Occupy (bowel) Movement.
they all dress up like Guy Fawkes and proudly declare war on corruption and capitalism!
by of course carrying around cardboard signs with meme's plastered all over them.
Maybe passing out food to the poor isn't so bad.
Flamboyant costumes aside, I think these people are doing a service to society. They're volunteers, they're not getting paid and they don't get benefits. Despite this, or perhaps because of it, they put themselves in harms way to help others. Police officers are notoriously corrupt and apathetic, they're taught things like putting the safety of themselves first and foremost, and (in places like America and other godforsaken third world shitholes) they're taught that the public is hostile to them. Which ends up being a self-fulfilling prophecy. This is largely due to corrupt/nepotistic organisations/practises like unions and machine politics but also because of the generous salaries/benefits that result.
So yeah, all the more power to these masked volunteers.
I don't agree. These delusional losers have only one thing in mind, and that's SELF-INTEREST. You know what these people are? THEY'RE RATS. SNITCHES. Fucking shitwipe faggots that call in bullshit like possession of weed and jaywalking. These VERMIN act like they are doing a service, when in reality, they're just making regular peoples days shittier. I'll fucking give them credit when they curb the murder rate in Baltimore, Maryland. Until then, it's just another group of jerkoffs I can do without.
So it's the shitty laws that are the problem, not the masked vigilantes. To be fair, it's the shitty laws which has left most citizens defenceless against the criminal element which has provoked crime which has provoked these individuals to action. No shitty laws and no needs for all of this.
As far as them stopping petty crime as you listed: http://www.worldsuperheroregistry.com/world_superhero_registry_philosophy.htm
By their own admission they're actually seeking out violent crime like assaults, rapes and robbery as well as trying to bring down drug dealers and pimps. There's some testimonies on that site and others. A bunch of them seem to be trill seekers that are disgusted by professional criminals and their effects on society. Some of them even have decent costumes. Too bad it won't protect them from a junkie with a knife.
I think you'd make a decent masked vigilante, Joe. If it wasn't for your game leg and PTSD, of course.
DING DING DING. It's the shitty laws. The point is, I don't NEED some doofus in spandex named Thunder Butt to come to my rescue, now or ever. If people cared to defend themselves instead of living on their knees their whole lives, WE WOULDN'T NEED masked dingleberries.
Indeed. I guess there's a reason you don't see any armed civilians in Gotham City. But then we wouldn't need a lot of police officers, would we? A lot of police officers would lose their jobs and be forced to do something productive with their lives.
In the meantime, Mr Joe, we'll have to accept these masked vigilantes as the only defence we have. If only to serve as an inspiration to ordinary citizens that they don't have to rely on bureaucrats. Surely you can appreciate that?
Surely. I'll go with that.
Yeah, I've noticed a sharp spike in "ordinary superhero" movies as America descends into authoritarianism/totalitarianism.
As a martial artist, I think I'd rather get shanked by the mugger than be be saved by some dickless fairy in purple tights.
Holy shit, I just remembered that Joe has that full body green suit. He's already half way there.
How do you feel about being saved by a dickless fairy in blue tights?
BUT WHO WATCHES THE WATCHMEN?!
Fucking pussies have no idea how to fight crime. They WISH they could be failures. They WISH they could be assaulted in the line of duty, when in reality zero percent have stopped a violent crime. The fact is they never encounter these crimes because in reality they are just attention whores/ wannabe tough guys. I saw a movie about these douches
They have stopped it, apparently.
Anyway, the chances of them finding a violent crime happening while "on patrol" is pretty slim. Their best bet is to attack gang bangers that are isolated from the herd.
Dude if you're about that car jacking that's totally staged fake bullshit.
I was referring to the claims made by those on the site. Obviously, I'm sceptical. But at least they're seeking it out.
And there's an actual instance of an intervention. Protection from litigation, my ass.
1st point: proof? Other than there own inane, insane ramblings. Phoenix Jones cannot even stop a group of crunckheads from dancing in the street, in the video link I posted upnthere.
2nd point: Not a one of these pussy faggot would ever even approach someone who looked vaguely dangerous.
Conclusion: While they could do a lot of good, these douche chills are not in danger of helping anyone with any real problems anytime soon.

I agree. We can only hope that a bored billionaire's son becomes inspired by these goons.
That would be some cool shit. Like the son of a mexican cartel lord with acsess to weapons and shit
I didn't know you and Rice had already jumped on the train. The world would have been better served if you had jumped in front of it.
This one is better.
I've already picked out a name and everything!
