'Pothole Robin Hood' Steals Asphalt, Fixes Potholes (Video)
A man dubbed the "pothole Robin Hood" is under police investigation for taking asphalt from the city of Jackson, Miss., and filling in potholes on city streets.

Ron Chane admits that he takes the asphalt and repairs potholes, and then signs the filled-in holes with the message "citizen fixed," he told ABC News.

"It's sort of like Robin Hood. Once we saw that people were appreciating what we did, we went out again and made a goal of fixing 100 potholes. We've actually filled 101 potholes, so our mission has been completed," Chane said.

"Jackson is like any other state capital, but we've got a big infrastructure problem," Chane said.

"It's hard to have a good city without good infrastructure," Chane added. "And our city simply does not have the budget."

The Jackson Police Department is looking into how Chane got the asphalt and has not yet made a decision about pressing charges.

"This is all still under investigation. We're just trying to get more information," Officer Colendula Greene told ABC News.

Chane says he is not committing a crime.

I wish more people would at least do "good deeds" like this. Of course you realize with our twisted legal system, they will make sure that "No good deed goes unpunished."

In the comment I read this: One man= one Pot hole minutes. Six City workers= one pothole hours. You do the math. The City needs to hire this guy as City Manager of Public Works. Smiley

Very inspiring.

I'm surprised government officials aren't calling this guy a "dangerous terrorist" or something.
