HERO PROFILE #34: Angle Grinder Man
Operated out of: England
Armed with: uh...an angle grinder
Activities: Angle Grinder Man, upset at heavy handed parking laws, cut the boot (usually called a clamp in the States) off of stranded motorist's vehicles as well as dismantling traffic cameras.
"This is the voice-mail of Angle Grinder Man, the world's first wheel-clamp and speed-camera superhero vigilante! I am out cleaning the streets of bureaucratic vermin! Good, honest, decent folk can leave me a message after the grinding noise – with God's help, we shall prevail!" –Angle Grinder Man’s voice mail message
“There are not enough car parking spaces for people. We got no public transport to speak of. It’s a complete joke and yet instead of us suing the government and the councils for shambolic mismanagement, we allow them to take back money from us, the very people they have let down.” - from a magazine interview
