Report: Half of Seattle police calls don't need cop response

Interesting study. Could the other 50% of calls be handled by Seattle Superheroes?!? ...probably not, but this study does point to different possibilities to handle issues beyond just a police all.

SEATTLE (AP) — New findings from an Oakland-based nonprofit that spent recent months analyzing Seattle's 911 calls say up to half the calls Seattle police receive can be responded to without armed, sworn officers. The Seattle Times reports police, while generally supportive of the findings, sa...

Tomorrow is May Day, which has historically been a momentous day for superheroes in Seattle, whether good or bad. It appears Phoenix Jones is planning a "comeback" of sorts. What are your thoughts on May Day in relation to RLSH? How do you feel about Phoenix Jones becoming more active again? Any other RLSH/Seattle Superheroes planning to be out for May Day?

Sadly, Dale "Old Superhero" Pople has passed away. Please take a moment to reach out to your friends and check up on them. Also, for those they knew him or had interations with him, please feel free to share a good memory or picture of Dale/Superhero.

We are sad to report that Dale Pople aka Superhero, an early prototype of the Real Life Superhero movement, took his own life yesterday. Superhero lived in Clearwater, Florida, and was loved in the RLSH community. We'll write a longer obituary on him soon, but for now our thoughts go out to his many friends and family.

Happy May Day! Here's a throwback to just a couple of years ago in 2018. Members of Emerald City Heroes Organization were seen out and about in downtown Seattle during the day's activities, as spotted by several members of the media and the public. Phoenix Jones reported that he was out in a "semi-private" way, though he was not seen by others. That year was rather calm compared to previous years.

Aloha.
You guys ROCK! I wish I had the ability to do what you do.
Vehemently volunteering via NW Harvest today. Vociferous villagers very welcome.
Black Friday was an exercise in situational awareness and judgement. Our impartial behavior demonstrated to the B.L.M. leadership that we were neither police nor protesters.

I consider it effective job performance when we enrage the right people: The self-described anarchists who exploited the cover of a legitimate demonstration to insert their hate-speech and attempt to harass civilians, were staring daggers at us.

Because we were at a city-sponsored event during daylight hours, a lot of civilians saw us for the first time. We often try too hard to explain why we are present. The comparison I make is a team of *peace-keeping medics*. We coined the term "Pre-sponders" a few years ago. I hope it catches on.
