Last June, I wrote about the LAPD’s crackdown of costumed superheroes who try to earn tips on Hollywood Blvd. It’s been a long standing tradition in Hollywood, but the cops chased all the superheroes off the street after a couple supervillains started demanding money from tourists.
And now the costumed superheroes are suing the city, and organized a protest yesterday at City Hall. Here are some great photos from the event.
I say, if they’re not inappropriately badgering tourists for money, then let them wear costumes! Rebecca Holland, who dresses as a Power Ranger, sums it up nicely:
“It’s no different than if one of us stole a purse. Would you arrest all of us?”
