Phoenix Jones out of retirement, checks out CHAZ or CHOP
After just over a year of retirement, Seattle’s superhero, Phoenix Jones, is back to patrolling the streets of Seattle. First stop: CHOP, or CHAZ.
Jones posted on his social channels Friday: “I’m out of retirement. Streets need me. Seattle hold it together I’m on my way.”
It appeared that Jones was inspired by CHOP/CHAZ, where there are no police officers after the Seattle Police Department left the East Precinct on Monday.
Jones said in a video posted on Twitter that it was pretty peaceful in CHOP/CHAZ during his visit.
He also posted on Instagram that he witnessed a fight in the park that involved a knife, but again, the area is “mostly calm and peaceful.”
