Spiderman has been arrested in New York City for forcibly touching a tourist in Times Square. Times are tough here in the big city and people have to make money any way they can. Spiderman just wasn't making ends meet as a freelance journalist, (there's a surprise). So, like many costumed superheros and Muppets he took to the streets of Time Square to make cash by milking tourists from Omaha for extra change. But that's no excuse for sexually harassing women. That's a no no. But he's not the only hero that's in trouble with the law. As Tim Tompkins, president of the Times Square Alliance stated,
"In the last 10 days alone, we've seen two Statues of Liberty arrested, a Spider-Man convicted of harassing a tourist, and now a third character arrested for groping a woman in Times Square. The situation is out of control and a licensing and regulatory scheme must be put in place."
What kind of sick world do we live in?
