Superhero Loses Day Job
November 4, 2011 by staff
Superhero Loses Day Job, Phoenix Jones, a self-proclaimed Seattle superhero by night, says he has been fired from his day job teaching autistic children. Jones said he received a letter dismissing him from his job with the Washington state Department of Social and Health Services because of his actions fighting crime at night, KING-TV, Seattle, reported Thursday.
“It basically just said that effectively immediately, I was no longer able to work with disabled or autistic children,” Jones said. “The reason is because I was put on a list of people who interject themselves into dangerous situations and some government agency put me on that list.”
The letter came after Jones was arrested for assault in October for using pepper spray on a crowd to break up a fight. No charges were filed against Jones in the incident.
“I feel like it’s an unjust characterization of me. In five years I haven’t had one complaint from any of the people I’ve worked with,” Jones said. The masked superhero said he plans to keep the streets safe during the day until he finds a new job.
