  1. I smell a lawsuit coming, particularly because one of the victims I believe was taken to the hospital by ambulance with a significant injury. Shame on the owner of those dogs!

  2. Hey Brentwood dog lovers, if you want to live in a community where the city council upholds dog rights over human life, come move to Antioch.

    Here, citizens come second to dogs. We have the most ass backwards way of logic in Antioch. Here you can sue people for damaging your dog’s teeth in the event your dogs get loose and stupid people were in the way, so the dogs to bit them.

    We have shootings in Antioch every day, but don’t worry about what your read in the paper. Our competent mayor said “things are getting better” so the crimes you read about never actually happened.
