Seattle Is Safe Under The Watchful Eyes of a Real Superhero Phoenix Jones

Seattle has a costumed superhero patrolling the streets of their city looking for crime and the criminals that commit them.
A vigilante by the name of Jones, wears a costume of gold and black, and walks a beat in Lynnwood, population 35,000. He costume consists of a bulletproof vest with stab shield beneath the outfit. He also wields pepper spray and a Taser stun gun.
His budget is much less than Batman and so he doesn’t have a bat mobile or other fancy vehicle. He is instead driven around in a Kia, by a faithful female sidekick who does not leave the vehicle.
Jones revealed to a local Television network that he started fighting crime about nine months ago and in that time he received stab wounds and had a gun pointed at him more than one time. However, he said, “When I walk into a neighbourhood, criminals leave because they see the suit. The average person doesn’t have to walk around and see bad things and do nothing.”
He just lately interrupted and diverted a car theft, and chased the criminal away who had been trying to break into the car. The car owner was shocked and said “From the right, this guy comes dashing in, wearing this black and gold suit, and starts chasing him away.”
Seattle Police comment that Phoenix Jones belongs to a nation-wide organization that call themselves the Rain City Superhero Movement. It has a website that says: “A real life superhero is whoever chooses to embody the values presented in super heroic comic books, not only by donning a mask and costume, but also performing good deeds.”
Police urge citizens to think twice about becoming vigilantes in comic book costumes, and they are extremely fortunate to not be mistaken as the very criminals they are trying to defend against. They add that it is extremely dangerous for citizens to place themselves in harms way by emulating comic book heroes.
