Brazilian city hires Batman to help fight crime3/9/2012
People who are looking for better jobs are always told to dress for the job that they want, not the one that they have. That tip worked for André Luiz Pinheiro, a retired soldier who used to dress as Batman and now has a job as...Batman. The police in the Brazilian city of Taubaté have hired Pinheiro to wear his Bat-costume as he helps them patrol one of their most dangerous neighborhoods.
According to the newspaper Ovale, the cops hope their caped coworker can "help to combat crimes such as murder and drug trafficking which have increased in Taubaté." Murder might be a tough assignment for an amateur crimefighter, but Pinheiro is ready. "I am eager to know how we can work together," he said.
