Guardian Angels back on patrol in Central Park


By Frank Rosario and Emily Saul August 10, 2015 | 9:05am


The Guardian Angels are back — and their leader says it’s because Mayor Bill de Blasio can’t keep New York City safe.

Curtis Sliwa, 61, radio personality and founder of the unarmed anti-crime patrol, joined five of his Angels in their first sortie into Central Park in more than two decades Sunday night.

“If the mayor won’t let the cops do their job, then we, the citizens, will have to go back to guarding our parks, streets and subways,” Sliwa said.

The Guardian Angels, who wear red jackets and berets, will patrol the city day and night, ready to make citizen’s arrests or “physically intervene” if necessary, Sliwa vowed.

6. He's going to save NYC from what?

 

A lying dirt bag?

"The Guardian Angels' founder and leader, Curtis Sliwa, has admitted that six of his group's early crime-fighting exploits were actually faked and former and present associates contend that even more of the group's activities were publicity stunts.

Rather than riding the subways to protect the public, the associates said, Mr. Sliwa and his wife, Lisa, run a group that has become little more than a security force for a block of midtown restaurants, its membership and activities exaggerated, its patrols, in trademark red berets, converging only on highly publicized situations.

Mr. Sliwa said in an article in The New York Post yesterday that he manufactured six stunts, including a report of the rescue of a mugging victim substantiated by a group member displaying bruises he had actually received falling down in the subway. In another, Mr. Sliwa said he was injured fighting several rapists at a Brooklyn subway station. 'We Believed the Lie'

Mr. Sliwa said he was coming forward now because he felt "unworthy" of the outpouring of support after he was shot in an as-yet-unsolved attack earlier this year. He maintained that attack was genuine.

7. The GAs are just another bunch of thugs.

I knew guys that were "Angels" back in the 80's and they used to play what is now known as the "knockout game". They'd try to one punch random people into unconsciousness on bets. My one acquaintence, who is now dead from being shot in a bar fight, was particularly adept at it.

They're no better than putting a biker gang out to "protect" people.
