On this episode of WTF California, a chat with Shawn Pickett who is running for District 4 Antioch City Council. As retired Richmond Police Lieutenant, we talk why he is running for city council from crime, lack of a code of conduct, city beautification, a need for safer streets and more.
This interview goes 90-minutes where Pickett says Mayor Lamar Thorpe should resign, the Antioch Police body camera footage in Tamisha Torres-Walker should be released and we talk comments made by Monica Wilson in a recent East Bay Times Article. We talk community policing, attracting police officers and good offficers won’t come to Antioch under this city council. He also calls for an open process in hiring the next city manager. He also talks about the need to work with Antioch Unified School District—is it a test score problem or a community problem. We close on what “building a better Antioch” actually means to him.
