  1. Now since Antioch has died of the Black Plague, hum what color has turned this once very nice town to a sh-t hole of crime? Yes, they were BLK.

  2. Nick, l have been here for 60 years. How many years have you been here? And Antioch was a nice town at one time, lots of jobs, great schools, low crime!

    • Hadenough – Since 1967. Grew up in Walnut Creek. Antioch and Pittsburg weren’t nice towns in the 60s. Not as bad as now – but even in the 60s Antioch had too much crime.

  3. no detail released on suspects except that they appeared human. APD then wants public’s help. gtfo. a joke. do they work for criminals or citizens.
