Roger Garcetti sez that he thinks Batman is a vigilante. He says that Batman should be arrested. This makes me so mad. Batman is the best thing that has happened to this city.

I support Batman but Garcetti, as a representative of the established civil authority really has to take that position. Batman exists outside the established authority and is therefore a threat to it. Think about it, there are over four hundred citizens for every cop, so the system works only if 1. the police are the only ones to enforce order and 2. most of us follow the rules and the police only have to deal with a few people who deviate.

The alternative is a world where anyone who has a grudge takes care of it themselves. That means that a person who feels wronged deals directly with his neighbor, shoots them if they feel its necessary. You get feuds and lawlessness and a survival of the fittest. The strong dominate the weak. By taking the law into his own hands, Batman threatens the police monopoly on maintaining order and could be seen as taking the first step towards that kind of lawlessness.

The problem is that the police are not keeping their end of the civil contract. We give them power with the understanding that they will maintain order. But anyone who lives in Gotham can see that order and safety are breaking down. We are already in a state of lawlessness. Batman is responding to the increasing disorder. And so are we by joining Citizens For Batman.

So you are saying that Batman should be arrested? Why the hell did you join this group then? You should leave. You're not welcome here.

If you read my post, you'll see that I say Garcetti has to call for Batman's arrest because he represents the civil organization. But the civil organization (that is, the city of Gotham) is failing in its contract with the citizens of the city.

Dent never got into mudslinging, even when Garcetti was doing his slimy worst. And he's got guts. And he doesn't want to arrest Batman. Dent's got my vote.
