    The best part is they are accountable to the people of the neighborhood. If they do a lousy job, they will be fired. Simple as that.

    I used to live in Houston. Civic Associations, as opposed to Homeowners Associations, are voluntarily funded. There is no penalty for refusing the pay the fees; yet they still have the money for this.

    There’s nothing new about this tactic. In the 1970’s and 1980’s, The Nation of Islam formed a security group that patrolled the high crime Black neighborhoods in Chicago at no cost to the city. Crime decreased 90% in those areas. Suddenly, the Chicago Police began to molest the members of the teams because they were “mostly Muslims”.
