Costumed crime fighter watches Milwaukee


UPI News Service, 10/04/2010 

Somebody in Milwaukee is on a personal anti-crime crusade -- and he's got the costume to prove it, observers say.

Armed with a flashlight and pepper spray, the Watchman -- he won't give his real name -- patrols the streets of Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood dressed all in black except for a bright red face mask and a large yellow W on his shirt, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

"I'm what people refer to as a real-life superhero," the 6-foot, 200-pound, 30-something crime fighter says.

"Somebody needs to do something," explains the Watchman, who says he thought about becoming a police officer before donning his mask.

"While most reactions to what I do are positive, there are a few negative responses," he says, adding that the disguise protects his family -- a wife and two young sons -- from any of that.

"I'm the one who decided to do this, not them," he says. "They should not have to suffer for it."

Despite the pepper spray, he says his cellphone is his weapon of choice, the newspaper said.

"It's about reporting it," he says. "Contacting police, or getting an ambulance out here if it's a medical situation."

Super powers? None, he says. "I'm just a guy. I may look a little funny, but I'm just a guy. And I'm out here to let everybody know that they can do their part."
