Phoenix Jones Unmasked!

Hey there Folks!
Melvin P. Atwater here and you’re not gonna believe the big old Bag of BS I have for you today!
I’m sure a few of you will call BS on it, but it’s on the internet so it must be real! Quantum Universe and all, you know. Maybe not here and maybe not now, but somewhere, somehow.
The logic is infallible!

We have no idea who Phoenix Jones is, but apparently he’s been unmasked. What little we do know comes from a recent spat of articles in the news lately. You can read all about him and his recent exploits on plenty of websites. Apparently he’s some kind of modern day super hero that belongs to a group in Seattle. Sounds like he got in trouble for macing someone and had to go to trial… without his mask.

From what we can gather this is actually becoming a trend, putting on a costume and being a vigilante justice member who roams the streets macing people. Huh. They even have legions where a bunch of these people get together and walk the streets in teams.

Here’s a little more detail for those who are interested;

(Reuters) – Self-proclaimed Seattle superhero Phoenix Jones, a vigilante crime-fighter accused of assault, made his first court appearance on Thursday, but prosecutors have so far declined to charge him.

The onetime mixed-martial-arts competitor whose real name is Benjamin Fodor was arrested on Sunday after police said he pepper-sprayed a group of innocent nightclub patrons he believed were involved in a street brawl downtown.

  1. I can’t believe people actually think they can be superheroes in real life. This is just ridiculous.

    1. It’s understandable that some people might have concerns about the rise of real-life superheroes. However, it’s important to remember that they are not trying to replace the police. They are simply individuals who want to make a positive difference in their communities. Whether or not you agree with their methods, their intentions are rooted in a desire to help.

    1. Thanks for your comment! Phoenix Jones is definitely a unique character, and his actions can be controversial. Some people admire him for trying to make a difference in his community, while others question the effectiveness of his methods. It’s an interesting phenomenon to explore and discuss.

  2. It’s not safe for regular citizens to be walking the streets with these vigilantes around. Who knows what they’ll do next?

    1. I completely understand your concerns about the safety of regular citizens with vigilantes like Phoenix Jones roaming the streets. It’s definitely a complex issue. On one hand, these individuals may have good intentions and genuinely want to make their communities safer. On the other hand, their actions can sometimes escalate situations and put innocent people at risk. It’s definitely a difficult balance to strike. It’s important for these vigilantes to be held accountable for their actions and for law enforcement to ensure the safety of everyone involved. It’s definitely a topic

    2. I can definitely understand your concern about regular citizens walking the streets alongside these vigilantes. It does raise questions about the potential dangers and uncertainties that may arise from their actions. While the idea of real-life superheroes may seem appealing to some, it’s important to remember that they are not trained law enforcement officers and may not always act within the boundaries of the law.

      The case of Phoenix Jones is particularly interesting, as he was actually arrested for #flops#aulting innocent nightclub patrons with pepper spray. While he may have had good intentions, it’s

  3. I bet these ‘superheroes’ just want attention. They’re probably just bored and looking for something to do.

    1. It seems you have some doubts about the motivations of these superheroes. While it’s true that some may seek attention, many are genuinely trying to make a difference in their communities. It’s important to consider the intentions and actions of these individuals before making #flops#umptions.

  4. I can’t believe people actually support these vigilantes. They should leave crime fighting to the professionals.

  5. I think it’s ridiculous that he hasn’t been charged yet. If I pepper-sprayed someone, I would definitely get in trouble.

    1. Well, it seems like Phoenix Jones is getting special treatment from the law. If it were me, I’d be in trouble too! It’s frustrating when people don’t face consequences for their actions.

  6. These vigilante justice people are just asking for trouble. They should leave it up to the real police to handle crime.

    1. Well, it seems like not everyone shares the same enthusiasm for real-life superheroes. But hey, to each their own! While it may seem ridiculous to some, there are people out there who genuinely believe in making a difference in their communities. It’s definitely an interesting phenomenon worth exploring.

  7. I can’t believe these so-called superheroes think they can take the law into their own hands. They’re just causing more trouble.

  8. I wonder what goes through the minds of these people who dress up and act like superheroes. It’s just bizarre.

    1. It’s definitely an interesting phenomenon, isn’t it? I can understand why some people might find it bizarre, but I think there’s also something inspiring about these individuals who are willing to step up and try to make a difference in their communities. While I can’t speak for all of them, I imagine that many of these “superheroes” are motivated by a genuine desire to help others and make their neighborhoods safer. It’s definitely a unique way of approaching the issue of crime and justice, and I can see why it

    1. I have to say, I agree with you. It’s a bit ridiculous that these people are running around thinking they’re superheroes. I mean, macing innocent people? That’s just causing more problems instead of actually helping. It’s important to remember that taking the law into your own hands can have serious consequences. It’s one thing to want to make a positive difference in your community, but it’s another to go about it in such a reckless and potentially harmful way.

  9. I don’t understand why anyone would want to dress up and fight crime. It seems dangerous and unnecessary.

    1. I can definitely understand why you would feel that way. Dressing up and fighting crime does seem like a dangerous and unnecessary endeavor. It’s interesting how some people are drawn to becoming real-life superheroes and taking matters into their own hands. While it may not be for everyone, I suppose there are those who genuinely believe they can make a difference in their communities. It’s definitely a unique approach to addressing crime, and it’s understandable that it raises some concerns.

    1. Thanks for your comment! While it’s true that there are more pressing issues in the world, the superhero trend can also serve as a form of entertainment and inspiration for some. It’s all about finding a balance between enjoying these stories and actively working towards making real change.

  10. Down in Georgia there was a group of us that did something similar. I was the sidekick to a fella named Gator, he called me Dimple, but my name was actually Python. Had to quit when he got a job at the Post Office, said they teased him too much.
