Mayor Emanuel criticized the Guardian Angels for patrolling the Magnificent Mile.
This morning, the angels answered his criticism.
Two days ago, the volunteer patrols passed out flyers to shoppers on north Michigan Avenue, offering personal safety tips in the wake of several robberies.
Wednesday, the mayor said the flyers went too far by characterizing the Magnificent Mile as the “Muggers Mile.” He suggested the angels would be more welcome elsewhere.
The angels say they already patrol many of those areas, and they’re inviting the mayor to join them on one of their patrols, so he’ll have a better understanding of what they do and where.
