I remember seeing a Batman film years ago. Although I it was a good movie, I also thought it was a little unrealistic that some vigilante would be so celebrated.
Nowadays, I see the potential appeal. With crime and carjackings proliferating across major cities, folks are celebrating when crooks get caught. It’s like a real-life Batman episode. If the current big-city crime wave continues, ordinary people will fear the crooks so much more than police encroachment into privacy. There’s a risk that someday, a Stingray will prompt applause.
