A Gang Worth Joining?

The last time that the Guardian Angles made a visit to Rogers Park was back in 2012 after a woman was raped near the Morse "L" stop. The Chicago chapter of the Guardian Angels is looking for new members. The flyer at Glenwood and Morse has a phone number 1-312-217-7245, You-tube and Twitter site.

The YouTube site has numerous videos of their self defense classes, interventions and patrols. Guardian Angels while on patrol help people in distress,  look for wanted suspects and warn people about criminals on the loose. This year the Guardian Angels is celebrating its 35th anniversary.

Peter V. Bella wrote a blog post about them last summer on his blog Interesting Chicago. He demands that the Guardian Angels leave the city because they call the Mag Mile "Muggers Mile". Newsguy on his blog The Right Perspective extolls the dangers of being a Guardian Angel; getting injured in the line of duty and not receiving support emotionally or financially.
