A community group in New York’s Greenwich Village has hired armed guards to fight crime, such as drugs and public defecation.

The West 4th Mac/6th Block Association recruited Black Tie Protection Services officers to patrol West Fourth Street between MacDougal Street and Sixth Avenue in August, the New York Post reported Saturday.

Resident Brian Maloney told the outlet that was the only answer to the issue.

“We have residents who say, ‘We’re a liberal town. The Village is a very liberal neighborhood. Why, I lost my liberality about it. It baffles me,” he commented. “Security certainly gave me peace of mind.”

Video footage showed people strolling on the side of the street, and the owner of the Washington Square restaurant told Fox 5 it was “the worst crime in 21 years”.

According to Maloney, the company received $18,000 for the month, and it remained to be seen whether the block association would extend the guards’ contract.

He said it was difficult to pay as taxes and grocery costs remained high.

Another neighbor told the Post she had never seen things so badly, saying: ‘I lived through the 70s and 80s when people said things were really tough. I was never afraid then. I am now. Everything comes from above, and [Manhattan DA] Bragg didn’t help any of us.

In August, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), the Republican candidate for state governor, again said he would fire George Soros-funded Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on the day of taking office, according to Breitbart News.

“Bragg’s soft approach to crime recently culminated in the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl by the office of a Braggs suspect released on the street,” the outlet said, adding that Zeldin had previously argued that it was the governor’s “constitutional responsibility” to fire district attorneys who fail to enforce the law.
