    • Wow… I live across the street and am far from ghetto. when u need a roof over ur head and don’t have a lot of money there’s not many places to go.. I work two jobs and still live with my mother who is on disability from a heart attack. . You should really think before you speak

      • Brandie keep working hard. Things will come for you. Bless you your family and your mother. My father lives there as well.

  1. Ghetto people don’t pay for paramedic care and ambulance rides lol. It gets absorbed. Or they have medi-cal and we ALL pay for it.

  2. I see here and on the Facebook posts most of you are sick of the crime in Antioch. The real problem is, you keep voting over and over again for liberal politicians that are soft on crime. Vote for politicians that are HARD on crime, I do, it’s very easy, the next time you vote, move your pen over to the next box. Remember, even if APD was fully staffed and was able to arrest more people, the liberal criminal-friendly DA would just most of them walk and plea bargain down to nothing. We need to treat our prisoners like they do in AZ, put them in tents in the desert in 120 degree heat and feed them lousy food. They have far few repeat offenders than we do, and much lower crime, because the criminals there dread prison. Prisons in CA are a joke.
