Batman streaker no laughing matter

The name Mark Harvey may be familiar to some. He's the guy who ran onto the field at an Orioles game as well as a Ravens game. This man is a self-absorbed idiot who brazenly sloughed of all rules of decorum while watching a sporting event ("'Batman' streaker at Orioles and Ravens games to be jailed," Dec. 19).

Fans in Baltimore do not need his kind. His disruption of games while wearing a Batman-like cape and messages penned onto his body is infuriating. He says he does his shtick to get messages across to the fans. The younger people think this is hilarious. I think it's heinous.

Police assigned to Orioles and Ravens games should be allowed to use Tasers to subdue jerks like this man-child. When one puts himself above the sport for a "look at me" moment, it's time for him to go, and go he will, to a year of incarceration.

The Sun also has to be taken to task for posting a photo of Harvey in his "Batman" outfit on the web edition. Don't you see that this is precisely what this man wants — recognition at any cost? I expect more from the editors, some of whom may see some sophomoric frivolity in it.
