Real-Life Vigilante Superhero, “Phoenix Jones” Stops Attempted Murder In Progress
Vigilante superheroes have long been a part of American culture because everyone knows that police don’t actually keep us safe, even if it is on a subliminal level. This is the main reason why people love stories about superheroes so much, because they show us real crime fighters that actually don’t disrupt the lives of innocent people, as police do on a daily basis.
As American streets become more heavily policed, and at the same time more dangerous, real superheroes are actually beginning to come out of the woodwork and make a difference. They aren’t writing parking or speeding tickets, and they aren’t hunting down non-violent drug users, but they are actually going after the violent criminals that police are too lazy and busy to deal with.
This week, one of the nation’s most active superheroes, Phoenix Jones was actually able to stop an attempted murder that was taking place on Capitol Hill in Seattle. According to KIRO, Phoenix was patrolling the streets near Capitol Hill when he witnessed three men attacking one victim, beating him viciously and pistol-whipping him. Phoenix immediately sprang into action, chasing the men down and knocking the weapon away from the armed man.
“I sprinted out as fast as I could and hit him with a right hand. The gun popped out, only the scary part was he didn’t get knocked out,” Phoenix said.
Phoenix then kept the suspects cornered until the police were able to arrive and arrest them.
