"Allegiance Assembled!"

Thanks Jorge for sending me something to make me laugh during this rough week. It was too good not to share.

A group of real life "super heroes" - spandex and Mexican wrestling masks included - have taken over the streets of Cincinnati to fight crime, feed the hungry, give money to the poor, keep the peace and whatever other Batman-esqe nonsense they come up with. That includes arresting criminals and hooligans with hand cuffs, tasers and pepper spray.

You mean to tell me some unemployed punk whose adam's apple hasn't dropped yet is walking around tasering people without preconceived legal consequence?!?

Yep.

Ohio and Kentucky have laws on the books that allow "citizen arrests," which is just what it sounds like. What they're doing in Cincinnati is perfectly legal.

Kudos to the reporter for delivering this story with a straight face. Watch it here.

Citizens Arrests are legal in Maryland too from what I can tell
