Considering that he had come within an inch of being murdered by some people connected to the highest levels of Jamaica, who also had criminal connections in New York, I would say that was a sensible precaution.

By "sensible" do you mean that security was needed? Or, do you mean that security from the mob was "sensible"? I see the former but would not condone the latter as the source.

I think considering the state of play a regular college boy security guard would have been inadequate. Fight fire with fire?

I mean both. Marley was tied up with some very bad characters, linked to the highest echelons of Jamaican politics. Who better to protect him than the Mafia?
