  1. U pos m f er We r tired of trash like u exploiting our city streets. take it back to where u came from and stay out!

    • Good doggie! Good doogie! I hope his handlers gave him a steak for his great work! Isn’t it strange that no matter where they are from, they almost always wind up in Antioch! Why is that?

  2. Why has Antioch become the shithole of the Bay Area. What happened to a nice city? Another great job by The officers on scene. Can we start a go fund me for a nice steak for the K9 cop.

    • Antioch has never been a nice city. It was a crap hole in the 60s and 70s, just like Pittsburg. It has gotten worse.

      • My great grandparents have lived in Antioch since the early 1950’s and say it was OK until criminals started living here in the late 1960’s. Pittsburg was bad but it got it’s act together (sort of), while Antioch went down-the-tubes mainly because of very poor city management.

  3. Looks like the K9 got his teeth into this piece of trash! I hope the dog doesn’t get sick! Who knows what this moron had inside his system!

    • Why not wait until facts come out until you start making assumptions about someone’s status based on their look?. We already have enough hatred being spewed every day – contributing to it doesn’t help our country come together.

      • We do make assumptions about someone’s status based on their looks and people with those “looks” are the ones to blame. If they followed our immigration laws, we would not assume things. They brought it on themselves and are ruining it for those who may have gotten here legally but still maintain the same “look.”

  4. My family has been in Antioch since 1905 and it was a wonderful small town to grow up in during the 60’s and 70’s. It started really going down hill in the last 10-15 yrs. Too much growth, too fast!!

  5. Moved to Antioch in 1989. Property was robbed the first day. A wheelchair bound drug dealer a few doors down. And my vehicle vandalized a few times the firs year. And I was told the nearby school had the best teachers and school scores. Yea, Antioch has been a %**$$hole at least since then. Now it is unbelievably bad!
