Exclusive (Hah!): Potential character designs for undercover cops posing as Saints fans

Jan 3, 2014, 10:20 AM EDT

In an effort to curb the violent incidents that keeping up at sporting events around the country, the Philadelphia police department has come up with a pretty decent idea for Saturday’s night Eagles-Saints playoff game at the Linc:

That got us thinking — much like what kind of name is Drew Brees anyway? – what do Saints fans even look like?

Well, as it turns out, they look like Iron-Man, Heath Ledger’s Joker, Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, one of dudes from Halo and WWE’s Goldust.

So if you see any of these fictional characters this weekend, try not to get arrested or legally beaten by the hammer of Thor. Maybe just take a picture with Elvis and be on your way.

    which is stupid because it makes it look like Saints fans actually attend outdoor games.

    Is that Thor, or Jorge Garcia from LOST?

    I don’t understand the point of entrapment. Why not just have more unis standing there visible to every nut job? Most criminals won’t go near or cause trouble when there is a uniformed police officer around.

      hopefully they can then catch the criminals and ban them from the stadium

      Entrapment: The act of government agents or officials that induces a person to commit a crime he or she is not previously disposed to commit.

        That’s what my understanding is. So Philly PD is dressing up as Saints fans to induce a moron who wouldn’t think about committing the crime if the LEO was in uniform standing in front of them.

      • BenE. - Jan 3, 2014 at 4:34 PM

        No, because the police aren’t making anyone commit a crime.

      • BenE. - Jan 3, 2014 at 4:41 PM

        Again, it’s like a bait car. The police park a car in an area with a high incidence of car theft. They sit back and wait for a criminal to come along and steal it. The police don’t tell the criminal to do it (entrapment). The police let the criminal act of his own accord.

        In this case, the police are luring criminals who start fights at football games. I’m sure there will be a heavy uniformed presence as well. The PPD is simply adding another angle to getting criminals out of the crowd.

      It’s not entrapment. Entrapment would be if one undercover cop dressed as an Eagles fan talked you into attacking an undercover cop dressed as a Saints fan.

      This is more like a bait car.

        nah, nah, nah it’s always better just to throw words around. who cares what they mean?

    I hope they wear more than just Saints jerseys, otherwise the Phillies finest will get mighty cold.

      Cole Hamels?
