Real Life Superhero ‘Phoenix Jones’ Fearlessly Unmasks to Battle Drug Pushers
Phoenix Jones, the real life superhero who patrols the streets of Seattle, has unmasked and gone undercover to serve the fine citizens of the Rain City.
Phoenix Jones documents his crime fighting encounters with a nightly journal he shares with his fans on Facebook. On October 21st, Phoenix Jones had a close call with drug pushers and a man who had just O.D.'d. Phoenix Jones shared the following (please keep in mind, Phoenix Jones speaks in all caps):
WOKE UP AT 8 AM... ONLY SLEPT FOR FOUR HOURS. LAST NIGHT'S PATROL WAS DIFFERENT. AT AROUND 2 A.M. I REMOVED MY MASK, PUT ON A COAT AND HAT, AND STARTED WALKING. IT DID NOT TAKE LONG TO BE OFFERED DRUGS AND TO NOTICE QUESTIONABLE CHARACTERS MOVING ABOUT. ON 3RD AND BLANCHARD AT 3:11 AM, I SAW A MAN FALL OVER IN A CROWD. HIS FRIENDS ALL TOOK OFF IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS. I APPROACHED THE MAN AND NOTICED HE WAS CONVULSING... CALLED 9-1-1 AND THE PARAMEDICS SAID HE WAS HAVING A DRUG INDUCED SEIZURE. AFTER THEY LEFT, I WENT LOOKING FOR HIS FRIENDS. I FOUND THEM UNDER THE HIGHWAY 99 OVERPASS... I WATCHED THEM COUNT MONEY AND MOVE DRUGS BACK AND FORTH... THE MAN CLOSEST TO ME WAS WEARING A RED WIND BREAKER. I HEARD HIM SAY "That's what happens when you find a hundred bucks, man. I'm lucky I'm always broke. No way to O.D.'
Upon witnessing these events and hearing the discussion, Phoenix Jones then put on his mask and approached the men. Phoenix asked, "IS MONEY WORTH KILLING YOUR FRIENDS?" The man in the red wind breaker responded with a racial slur.
Phoenix Jones continues:
HE TOOK A FEW STEPS BACK AND STARTED LOOKING AT THE LEFT OVER BAGGIES ON THE FLOOR. I KICKED DIRT OVER THEM AND HE LEAPT AT ME... HE SCREAMED IN PAIN... I'M ASSUMING HE DID NOT KNOW I WAS WEARING S.A.P.P. PLATED BODY ARMOR. PROBABLY BROKE HIS HAND. I FIRED ONE KICK BACK...HIT HIM IN LEFT LEG AND SENT HIM TO THE GROUND... THE MAN DID NOT MOVE... FROZEN BY FEAR.
At this point, Phoenix Jones asked the man where the drugs came from. Unfortunately, the answer was precisely the bad news Phoenix already knew. The man replied, "LA is back in the ID (International District) he's got tons of stuff he's been hooking all of us up."
I REMEMBER LA... HE WAS BIG A FEW YEARS AGO THEN DISAPPEARED. I KNOW HIS FACE... TIME TO PAY CHINA TOWN A VISIT. FLUSHED DRUGS DOWN THE DRAIN AND EXPLAINED TO RED COAT THAT THIS WAS HIS ONE WARNING... TIME TO GIVE LA HIS WARNING.
