ORANGE (CBS) — The homeless community in Orange County that has been by stalked by a serial killer in recent weeks is now under the protection of angels.

KNX 1070’s Mike Landa reports members of the Guardian Angels have pledged to help watch over a very nervous community.

Several members of the Guardian Angels handed safety information and spoke with homeless people at the Orangewood Avenue underpass of the Orange (57) Freeway.

The non-law enforcement volunteer group said it will begin to patrol the Santa Ana River Trail in Anaheim indefinitely, just miles from where one of three homeless men was fatally stabbed in recent weeks.

“We want these fliers up to be reminders that they have to be aware of what’s going on in the street,” spokesman Dave Eagle of the Inland Empire Guardian Angels said.

“A lot of ’em, they put their guard down, they forget, and then they become victims, and we don’t want that to happen.”

The group will conduct nightly patrols “until the Orange County serial killer is caught,” Eagle said.

    These characters can’t catch a mouse with a mouse trap.

      Have you ever even seen them in action? Did you hear about Curtis Sliwa, the Founder of the Organization, and his role in the Case against John Gotti? How about the regular arrests made by the Chicago, Miami, Denver, New York, Los Angeles, and Philidelphia Chapters (Just to name a few). It’s plain to see, you have no idea what you’re talking about.

    If the group hadn’t advertised it they might have been able to catch the killer, DUH.

    1. Chris Archer says:

      Actually, it was our intention all along to advertise. That way, the killer knows people are hunting for him; sets him back on his heels, and hopefully he makes a mistake. That’s not something I’d expct you to understand, however, as I’m sure you feel quite safe at home, in your own bed.

    I invite both of the individuals above to locate and contact their local Guardian Angels chapters for a walk-along patrol one evening, so they can see what it is, exactly, we do. Perhaps you may find it highly educational, and at the very least, allow us to explain what we do in our own words. Please reserve your judgement until you’ve taken the time to understand what it means to “Dare to Care”.
