Thanks to APD. You are the best! Stay safe out there.

Cheryl Jan 29, 2014 - 11:51 am

Way to go APD. Hope he rots in jail. Where are these parents? 17 years old, what a shame.

Lady Feb 5, 2014 - 1:10 pm

First off he’s not 17 and wtf his parent’s got to do with it. You can raise your children the right way, but it’s up to them if they will follow.

Me Feb 5, 2014 - 2:14 pm

Lady 17 or 19 big deal where are the people who are raised his ass why don’t they come out and appologys.

ECVsBrother Feb 5, 2014 - 7:09 pm

That’s exactly why there is a crime problem. I mean WTF ? You must be a proud Lady.

Who would have guessed he was Black.

Completely shocking!!!

SLW Jan 29, 2014 - 1:48 pm

RJB you are killing me. I was thinking the same but maybe I should of not held back from saying so since I’m already accused of being racist. LMAO. Hope they hang that puke ass by his balls. You notice how APD is not releasing the cause other than an argument. What is a 33 yr. old arguing with a 19 yr. old about? I could imagine.

rene Jan 29, 2014 - 3:43 pm

What does color have to do with anything? The man that raped and took the little girl from antioch a few weeks ago wasnt black were you surprised then? Just because he was a black male doesnt mean every black male is guilty. You need to change your outlook. There are plenty of killers and rapists and drug offenders of every single color. Because of color doesnt make you better or worse then any other race. Its a life decision to turn out that way.

Ed Jan 29, 2014 - 12:03 pm

I bet he makes his family proud

John Doe Jan 29, 2014 - 12:16 pm

Here is this upstanding citizens facebook page, doesn’t he look like such a nice young man?

SLW Jan 29, 2014 - 2:02 pm

So John Doe, I looked at his FB page. Wow. That is a son I would be proud of. SMDH.
If that is him with the braids that is who I saw walking fast away from Jack in the Box when I was leaving Walmart. I never forget a face because something didn’t sit right with me. I called APD because the picture they used in the post he looks different which he could of went and shaved his head and goatee. I was accused of being hateful and racist in the other post when I had mentioned that I saw a black guy walking away from Jack in the Box.

the man that was shot was a Antioch citizen .a father .very good person .who have lots of friends who love him .I hope he is able to pull through as it would be a very shame in a waste of life .for those of you who did not know this gentleman he was in a wheelchair paralyzed from the chest down .but that did not stop him from getting around and being cool with everyone .careful how you judge people you do not know .blessings to his family . sincerely… Jamon

SLW Jan 29, 2014 - 3:19 pm

JW, what was the argument over? Does anyone know the truth at this point? If this was an isolated case where this POS shot your friend just to shoot him, then shame on me for speculating. However, because if APD releases this info it could jeopardize the investigation but until that is know I’m assuming it wasn’t a case of just being shot for nothing. I’m sorry your friend was shot and hopefully he pulls through this. Prayers

There was a homeless man sleeping over in that area, specifically across from UNO’s in front of the dentist office. I am wondering since this kid worked at Jack in the Box there if he got into an argument with the homeless man and shot him.

Sten Hedberg Jan 29, 2014 - 3:37 pm

leave black out it. APD did their job. Thanks.

ECVsBrother Jan 29, 2014 - 6:37 pm

Are you saying the guy that got shot was in a wheel chair ? That’s cold. How could anyone shoot a person paralyzed in a wheel chair?

Thank you AND for taking another low life piece of scum off our streets.

Jamie Jan 29, 2014 - 8:24 pm

Thank you APD!

JIS Jan 29, 2014 - 9:32 pm

Surprise…..he’s black?!? What else is new? 99% of crime in Antioch is committed by them. I’m not racist just pointing out the facts. When are we really going to take back Antioch?

dm1225 Jan 30, 2014 - 3:47 pm

12% of the population is black and 50% of criminals are black. Violent natured, criminally opportunistic, and civil disobedient. Look at the genocide in east Oakland, shootings daily, killings every other day. Step up Obama, it’s your legacy.

am Jan 29, 2014 - 10:19 pm

It’s the criminal element moving in, ask mayor Harper. If you ain’t got it, go out and get it. We know about the sexual offenders in the area, what about the ex cons and felons?

debbie Jan 30, 2014 - 2:53 pm

I don’t think you should be scare to speak your mind, it’s almost always a black guy. Who has no education and no respect for other people . He would most likely steal from his own grandmother. Who by the way should go on tv and make a statment about how the black people from antioch need to get it together.

Tony Jan 30, 2014 - 6:03 pm

Some of you are just as ignorant as this guy who committed this crime, to think most crime in Antioch or anywhere else is committed by black people. There are tons of ghetto acting or meth addicted white people committing crimes. The color of your skin has absolutely nothing to do with it and you should just focus on the police did a great job getting another criminal off the street. Comments like these are reasons why good honest black people don’t trust white people and you say racism is gone? Just Ignorant plain and simple

Reginald Jamal Brown Jan 31, 2014 - 9:51 am

Hey Tony

It’s comments like yours that make people believe you Blacks will stick by each other right or wrong. and in most of the cases it is always in the wrong.

I bet you don’t have a college education that teaches most of the crime committed is by Blacks and that’s for the entire country.

It’s not racism it’s the simple truth.

I could care less if you don’t trust white people. That’s your problem. And guess what? I’m Black and have many friends from all races I trust.

SLW Jan 31, 2014 - 4:22 pm

AMEN RJB… you speak the truth from your race. I like ya.

Mom Jan 30, 2014 - 6:11 pm

Wow!!! Thanks for all the good and negative reply’s. This is the mother of the victim that was shot!!! It’s good to know how everyone feels. Black, white, pink or purple. Thanks APD. My son will live to see another day.

SLT Jan 30, 2014 - 8:48 pm

I’m so sorry this happened to your son who was already in a wheel chair from what I understand. Do they know why the argument happened and why that little punk shot him? I noticed that APD is being very tight lipped about this investigation.

Candy Jan 31, 2014 - 6:53 am

I see all these insane comments n just shake my head . This is Antioch NOT oakland I’m sick of ppl calling it Oakland ! Oakland has daily homicides & the OPD is incapable of saving their own city. Yes Antioch is getting worse but Antioch has been like this b4 (anyone.remember the 90s gang violence here? ) its amazing ppl r also blaming the victim here ! I hope your soon pulls thru

ECVsBrother Jan 30, 2014 - 6:54 pm

As far as who is committing the real crimes against society is obvious by statistics. Read the stats and they will tell you a lot of info about who’s who and who’s doing what. There still needs to be accountability to those people’s counterparts to turn that statistic around.

Debbie Jan 30, 2014 - 8:26 pm

Yes I wish the family of the person who shot this poor man would come out and apologys. They should pay for this mans medical needs. And the man who shot him should be given the death sentience.
