Only one month ago the Guardian Angels, the controversial citizens patrol, announced bold plans to protect illegal aliens from border bandits. Now, authorities say, the Angels have disappeared from the border after bandits robbed them in the canyons they intended to make safer. Law enforcement officials say they are glad they have not seen any of the young crime fighters recently.

An overflow crowd of about 300 West San Gabriel Valley residents, frightened by a recent series of five murders and four assaults in their communities, turned out this week to welcome the Los Angeles-based Guardian Angels, who have been patrolling the streets of Sierra Madre, Arcadia and Monrovia for two weeks. The Guardian Angels sponsored the meeting Monday night at Sierra Villa Park in Sierra Madre to introduce themselves to the community and to encourage formation of a chapter in the area.

The Guardian Angels thank our Los Angeles Police Dept. for a three-minute response when two Angels were downed by gang shot July 4. Quick command of the situation was thankfully received. The ambulance recovery was fast and professional. Even the media was helpful and efficient at a critical time for our fallen Angels. This is not the first the LAPD has saved our bacon, and probably won't be the last. At this time, we should like to doff our red berets with a heartfelt thanks. G.C. (BRODIE)

Perhaps you've seen them on the streets in red berets and T-shirts that bear their insignia--a watchful eye and a pair of wings. They're the Guardian Angels, watching over communities worldwide. A new Venice chapter has begun sending out volunteer safety patrols--on foot, bicycle and roller-blade--to deter crime, gangs and drugs, and to serve as role models.

A campaign by the Guardian Angels to warn Koreatown transients of a killer or killers who have slain four people was abandoned minutes after it began Monday. About 20 members of the Los Angeles Guardian Angels gathered at Vermont Avenue and Olympic Boulevard and started to distribute flyers that read, "BEWARE TRANSIENT KILLERS: If we see you commit the crime, we guarantee you will do the time."

While many Southlanders spent their holiday afternoon at the beach, a concerned group spent the day conveying a message of support to President George Bush's $8 billion plan for a war on drugs. About 35 people shouting slogans of "Bust the Thugs, Burn the Drugs," and carrying a mock coffin inscribed with "Deposit Drug Lords Here," gathered at the Federal Building in Westwood to participate in the 1 p.m. vigil organized nationwide by Guardian Angels.
