Does Orlando need the Guardian Angels?
Guardian Angels May Help Fight Orlando Crime
ORLANDO, Fla. -- National headlines of violence in Orlando, Fla., has prompted the controversial Guardian Angels group consider coming to the city to battle crime, according to a Local 6 News report.
"The Guardian Angels leader Curtis Sliwa said Orlando's national image is being tainted by bloody headlines about a record murder rate". He suggests patrols on the city's toughest streets.
The Guardian Angels said they would target neighborhoods in Pine Hills, Parramore and South Orange Blossom Trail, the report said.
Orlando police said it is not embarrassing(???Oh really?) that an outside group wants to help fight crime but there may be consequences.
"Our message has always been, 'Don't get involved," (That's the problem!!) Orlando police Sgt. Barbara Jones said. "There is a risk when you start getting involved in criminal activity. We have seen people get involved, and sometimes it doesn't work out for them."
