PA Man Dresses Up Like Ninja, Tries to Fight Crime, Gets Arrested

Combine slimmed-down police forces with Zimmerman-style vigilantism, throw in a little comic-con, and this is what happens.

In an effort to help battle Johnstown’s crime concerns, Todd Kapcsos, of Johnstown [near Altoona] said he dressed as a ninja, but was charged with two misdemeanors for what he did. “I dressed up in all black, snuck around, went through bushes,” Kapcsos said. “I was practicing some ninja moves — ball, looking like a rock, just hiding in the shadows.”

Said a neighbor: “It looked like he was trying to break into homes, not like he was trying to save the world.” Stop-and-frisk, ninjas, what is anything legal anymore? [WJAC]
