Superheroes: Do We Need Them?

Seattle Police Arrest 'Superhero' Phoenix Jone...

So Phoenix Jones got hauled in for breaking up a fight.

The Rain City Superheroes “are making people more accountable.” Jones wears the costume so the cops know he’s on the good side.

Without the costumes, aren’t we talking about neighborhood watch and the Guardian Angels?  The Angels had costumes too, but just not as cool.

So, do we need costumed people patrolling our streets?  Well, we’ll have hundreds come Halloween.  I don’t have a problem if some want to keep wearing their costumes.  Beyond the costumes, I don’t have a problem with people trying to clean up their neighborhoods.

Good for you, anyone who wants to wander around making sure crime doesn’t pay.  Just keep it legal and follow the same sort of restraint as the regular cops.
