Curtis Sliwa Quotes
Block Watch, Crime Watch, we have hundreds of thousands of Americans, every day and night, risking their lives, going out for no pay as volunteers, protecting Americans like all of you and not asking anything in return. And the other day I’m speaking in a high school in New Jersey and the youngsters go, oh, you’re just like Zimmerman.

Maybe they have been in trouble before, but not serious trouble. … We cherry-pick them and circumvent them away from the gang members and drug dealers … (and encourage) them to hang out with us and become a Guardian Angel.
I’ve buried six Guardian Angels who have been shot and killed in the line of duty. I was stalked myself, had a gunman go pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, five hollow point bullets, God save me. What do you think this is? This isn’t Zimmerman. But unfortunately, he’s become the face of Block Watch, Crime Watch.
