This is not a prank story. It really happened.
Police alerted to 'superheroes' patrolling Seattle
Seattle police say a group of self-described superheroes have been patrolling the streets at night trying to save people from crime. They call themselves the Rain City Superhero Movement and say they're part of a nationwide movement of real-life crime fighters.
The national website -- cited in a police bulletin sent to Seattle officers Wednesday -- states
"a Real Life Superhero is whoever chooses to embody the values presented in super heroic comic books, not only by donning a mask/costume, but also performing good deeds for the communitarian place whom he inhabits."
Police say the "costume-wearing complainants" are lucky they haven't been hurt."
How bizarre that the neighborhood in the article is where we lived and started the ACL, back before anyone knew what communitarian places were. And it sounds weird but I doubt this brave masked crusader meant to say "whom" because he thinks a communitarian place is a person, I'm assuming he meant "which." I do wonder where he learned to use the word communitarian place. Maybe we should track him down and arrange a secret interview.
I know my 3 year old grandson would think it's a great idea! He plays Batman all the time.
Well duh, went and read their website and not laughing as much anymore. It's all tied to their belief in "community service." They're tools for the evolving collective... and that's not funny at all. So much for my looking at the brighter side of life. :)
