Phoenix Jones Kick’s Ass To Keep Seattle’s Streets Safe!
After Kick-Ass was released in theaters parents were concerned that their teens would decide to suit up in costume and fight crime and end up getting killed. Thankfully, there have not been reports of that happening, but there has been an interesting report of an adult costumed vigilate who fights crime in Seattle.
Police say the “costume-wearing complainants” are lucky they haven’t been hurt. In one instance, police say a caped crusader dressed in black was nearly shot when he came running out of a dark park. In another case, a witness on Capitol Hill saw the crusaders wearing ski masks in a car parked at a Shell station and thought they were going to rob the place. “I don’t condone people walking around on the street with masks,” said the man who called himself Phoenix Jones. “Everyone on my team either has a military background or a mixed martial arts background, and we’re well aware of what its costs to do what we do.” Police say they hope the self-proclaimed superheroes act as good witnesses instead of putting themselves in danger.
