The Origin Of “The Sheriff’s Batcave Café”

“The Sheriff’s Batcave Café” is located at the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office near the jail inside the Justice Complex Courthouse. The Batcave Café is a cafeteria created for the convenience of jurors, employees, and visitors.  Its décor is Batman themed and even has a unique mural of the city of Atlanta on the wall with the bat signal calling for the Sheriff.  Every single item in the cafeteria was a gift to Sheriff Victor Hill in appreciation for either a bad guy being captured, or a crime being solved by his office.   The idea to put all of the Batman gifts in the cafeteria came after Sheriff Hill ran out of room in his office to display them all.  The Sheriff wanted everyone who had given him a gift related to his favorite superhero to know that each and every one of them are much appreciated.  And thus the “Sheriff’s Batcave Café” was born.  


However, many diners often ask, “How did the connection with Sheriff Victor Hill and The Batman begin?”  Here lies the answer:


                   ART IMITATES LIFE


A young Bruce Wayne and his parents are walking down the street when they are confronted by a armed robber with a gun.  The  robber begins pulling the pearl necklace from Bruce’s mother’s neck nearly strangling her.   Bruce’s father tries to defends his wife and is shot and killed.  Bruce’s mother begins screaming in horror and the robber silences her by shooting and killing her as well.  Now a young Bruce stood alone in a state of shock after witnessing his parent’s murder watching them lay in a pool of blood.


Anger fueled by grief would drive the young Bruce Wayne to vow not only to avenge his parents, but to avenge all victims of similar crimes.  Bruce Wayne spent years training his mind and body to prepare him to wage his own personal war on crime.   He would later emerge as “The Batman” and would become “The Dark Knight” of Gotham city who would mercilessly hunt the city’s most dangerous killers.


Years later, an adult Bruce Wayne attended a circus and watched a young boy witness his parent’s murder. Remembering, the tragic murder of his parents, Wayne took the child as his ward and  helped him avenge his parent’s murder.  Wayne trained the child to further wage war on crime avenging other victims.   This child, first known as “Robin” would grow up and eventually take on a persona of his own as “The Night-Wing”.


                    LIFE IMITATES ART


As a child, Sheriff Victor Hill was an avid reader of comic books.  His favorite superhero of course was Batman.  However, an event occurred, turning the life of the future Sheriff of Clayton County in an unforeseen direction.  This incident made his favorite superhero no longer a source of entertainment, but a focal point of obsession.


It started when Sheriff Victor Hill was still in grade school.  A friend he had known since the first grade suddenly disappeared.  Days later, the friend’s mutilated and raped body was discovered in a wooded area behind a convenience store.  This disappearance and murder shook the community until the killer was identified and captured.  This incident also left the young future Sheriff with a disdain for murderers and crime that rivaled that of his fictional superhero.   As a result, the young future Sheriff of Clayton County began training to spend the rest of his days relentlessly tracking and capturing armed and dangerous killers.   Sheriff Victor Hill now dubbed as  “The Crime Fighter” has been personified as Clayton County’s  “Dark Knight”, and the county has become his “Gotham City”.  The Sheriff’s patrol vehicle starkly resembles the Bat-Mobile, and his jail dubbed “The Hill-ton”, has been teased to be his “Arkham Asylum”.


Years ago, the Sheriff began mentoring a teenager who was dealing with the murders of both his brother and sister.  That teenager is now the Lieutenant that commands the elite Fugitive Squad hunting Clayton County’s most wanted killers on the command of The High Sheriff!
