Antioch & Pittsburg have become the new Richmond / Oakland. Sad...they were once peaceful river towns.
Now there are armed robberies and shootings and all of the usual "south Central" type stories in the news every day. I won't shop there! No way.

So what's your point???
You say the same doomy crap every time.
Aren't you selling us something there?
There are far and away more good people who live in Antioch and even if they live in Antioch they can rob in Orinda.
Everyone knows a neighborhood is only as safe as the people walking through it.
Are you liking hiding under your bed there wimpus?
Or was this just to hate on our town?
What are you selling?
Just hanging out on the net to note the location of crime?
It's you posting all this fake gang (woodie) BS in here,

Berkeley has bad areas too I'm sure. Like off of San Pablo. Antioch is still decent.

I love Antioch and the semi-rural Delta Gateway area. The weather is wonderful and the rivers are nearby.Been passing thru there for over 50 years. I just hate to see these nearly DAILY news stories about armed robberies at gunpoint in broad daylight, shootings, home invasions, beatings and so forth. These kinds of things turn a good thing into a bad thing, little by little. The many GOOD people of the area should initiate a campaign to improve things before its irreversible. There- that's all I'm trying to sell....No Charge!

Well.. It's simple really. Stop giving Section 8 voucher holders a 4000 sq ft house with swimming pools and demand that Walnut Creek, Orinda, Lafeyette , Danville, Alamo, Clayton, Brentwood, Oakley all carry their burden of Section 8 housing and there should be apartments build in areas where they can be monitored and if they act up they get booted. I can't for the life of me understand why the only people who can live in these giant houses off of Prewett have to be poor problematic families living off of the federal Government while other families with the same problems live in crappy apartments off of the same federal program. How many section 8s live in brand new 2200 plus sq ft homes in Antioch... Something like 1500? It's pure insanity and no one is doing anything to stop this. STOP THIS NOW!!! Friend are moving away and filing bankrupsty while the banks take their homes and lease them out to section 8. You should be Angry. These people dont take care of the properties and don't care about other people but themselves. One day Section 8 will end and all these leaches will be forced to move back into 1 bedroom apartments Downtown! THEY DON"T DESERVE TO HAVE BRAND NEW HOMES> GOT DAMN THIS &*^%ING SYSTEM!

Iam originally from S.F. been living here since 9/99, it was quiet, so boring, i couldnt stand it but as time went by i got used to it. crime began to happen on G Street,and then cars were being broken into literally in front of the homes. About the sect. 8, so so true, peopel constantly get 4-5 bdrms for .....swear!$45!!! I have seen in brentwood 4 bdrms for $240!! I aint lying since i know these peeps.
You see I am a single mom with two kids, 18 and 11. Raised in foster homes all my life. I have a 3 bedroom two full bath in the new Mercy Housing....there aint nothin MERCY about it. I pay $1223/mth and I take home $2000. My two neighbors iwth the exact same unit....one pays $963 and the other the same.
I notice that predominately the sect. 8 holders are african/american (black) i know this is true cause i have tons of friends that live in them and guess what they all do??
They tell their aunt, cousin, brother/sister and mama's when the section 8 list is opeining and guess what?? they get it too. Gotta hand it to them....they smart.
However, I will say this....
Its a crappy system, cause I have tried and tried, worked and worked went to schoola and worked and still they have denied me.
Heres my gripe about section 8.
Cool have the people have it for atleast 5 yrs (liket he welfare system) and then have their voucher terminated. By then they should be able to afford a house, what the hell? They get to put a portion of their $45 -$240/mth rent aside to save. But gues what....
THEY STAY AND STAY AND STAY FOREVER...
SO WOMEN LIKE MYSELF CAN NEVER GET IN.
THINK ABOUT IT...
WHO THE HELL WOULD LEAVE OUT OF A 4-5 BEDROOM IN BRENTWOOD, OAKLEY, ANTIOCH, WALNUT CREEK IF THEY HAD TO PAY $45 -$240/MTH AAAAAND....ON TOP OF THAT....THEY GET TO SAVE A PORTION??
I'DE STAY TOO.

It's all BS to paint Antioch as a bad location to move.
The section 8 is a ploy that they are doing at city hall and believe it or not its a scam to get there own version of the program that so far the county has refused them. The general idea of it is to discourage anyone from buying a home. High crime will drive away buyers so the property can be bought cheap.
I know it's hard to swallow but why else do they generate fake crime to make our town look bad?
It's either the same person changing where he or she is from and the name or many people from any state or city. What is clear is there is no more concern from them about Antioch than there is truth in the crimes they say have occurred. The mention of section 8 is the give away or racist remarks.
I find the black in our neighborhood very likable and I am sure all people change from area to area but this berating of the town or the race or section 8 is so generalizing and done so frequently that I have to believe we have a professional troll in here.
#9 Oct 20, 2009
Thats why I hate coming in here. They make up the news and lets face it the people making the comments back to them selves to sway public opinion shows a clear agenda. One that is obviously hidden.
I wonder who wants to make Antioch look blighted?
#10 Oct 20, 2009
See how this creepy guy buries what the people say when it isn't Antioch's a ghetto or section 8 has ruined the town?
The news paper is helping this paint Antioch blighted.

I would suggest you take a little field trip to Gas City between 10:00 pm and 2:00 am on any Friday or Saturday night. Maybe after you have been either propositioned for drugs, panhandled for a dollar or robbed at gunpoint you will think different. You just keep thinking all the crime is made up. You are an idiot! I would suggest a foil cap and a ticket to mars you stooge!
#12 Oct 20, 2009
I pass gas city all the time .
I like Antioch and you hate it so get lost and move somewhere they need a little complainer.
We're tired of hearing your little pretend siren.
Gas city, Rrrrrr section 8, Rrrrrrrrr ... the blacks.Rrrrrrrrr- RrrrrrRRRrrrr
Get a life maggot.
What are you doing Booo Hoooo hhoooo
Nothing but pretending life here is hard. I seen worse and if you want better MOVE!!!
You hate Antioch so much MOVE!!!!!
We happen to like our city and you hate it so MOVE !!!
What are you running around Antioch at 2 AM for.
Let me see. you're out there taking speed or crack.
What are they doing to you?
Are they breaking the law?
You're so full of it!!!!
#13 Oct 21, 2009
A lot of hatred coming across these notes.
We have got to look out for each other.
We have got to look out for each other children and families.
WE MUST BE THE CHANGE WE SEEK.
My concern is for those children that go out with out eating and fully dressed.
My concern is for those foster children that are out there hurting.
My concern is Contra Costa County is a mess, and we have to admit that.
Yes, there are many beautiful people here; however, to deny that crime simply does not exist at an alarming rate, is nonsense and simply not true. Interview our police officers ask them what they experience on a daily basis. Predominantly, there is so much domestic violence that this causes to rise crime and insecurity in our neighborhoods.
Let each of us be the difference and show what it is to live respectfully by picking up our garbage and not litering and going to church and having a faith in our communities so we can build our relationships through our communities. Let's attend community gatherings to bring networking into the thought and mind of those that are not networkers.
Most importantly, JESUS IS THE PEACE WE ALL NEED.
ATLEAST....JESUS IS WORKING ON ME TO BE A BETTER HUMAN BEING AND ULTIMATELY....JESUS TEACHES ME TO LOVE MY NEIGHBOR.
THAT IS THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT FOR BELIEVERS LIKE ME......
"LOVE ONE ANOTHER"
I am sure you are all familiar with this quote...
"It takes a village to raise a child."
YES, IT TRULY DOES.
IT'S GOING TO TAKE ME AND YOU AS CITIZENS TO MAKE OUR COMMUNITES SAFER BY LOOKING OUT FOR ONE ANOTHER.

Seems the owners of Gas City no longer care about who's hanging out in front. and it's funny, they removed the pay phone and now it's back.
#15 Oct 21, 2009
I said stop by Gas City idiot! Not drive by. The the reason I don't leave is because I'm stuck in a house that lost it's value because of you happy with Antioch section 8 renters. Sure your happy with Antioch the way it is because your probably one of those low lifes that are swimming in the maggot pool happy as crap. Go back to were you came from and Antioch will be a better place to live. If you can't recognize the problem then you must be part of it.
#16 Oct 21, 2009
So what are you saying "we live in a tar pit?
You act like you give a crap about you but why do you repeat what's wrong over and over.
So you got a hard break I bet people would die to be in your shoes/
Are you 5150 on a mission to trash where you live?
You hash and rehash all this crime to make Antioch look bad then act like you care. You're part of the problem buddy and you're driving people away with your 'we live in the ghetto.
So how many section 8 or blacks did you drive out so far?
But you did run off hard working people who wanted to raise their families.
That is why you're a fake. There can be no reason except you have a secret agenda.
Secret agendas tend to be the opposite of what they are supposed to be so that means you are for the ghetto.
Trashing Antioch to drive down home prices.
It that what will bring you home price back?

I am simply venting my frustrations. I thought this is why these boards are here. I'm sure you love this city and at one point so did I. But I like many people are watching this city turning into a pile of crap. My problem is I'm not just closing my eyes and pretending that it's not happening. It atleast helps when someone out there understands and agrees with the problems. Our city council has just wrote off on the problems and simply act like nothing is wrong while gangs shoot up the high school, our stores are robbed, our children are threatened and our area is being trashed. What do you suggest we do to change this?
#18 Oct 23, 2009
I think it's time for the cities with the most crime to allow people to have conceal and carry permits to all law abiding citizens. They did it in Isleton and a friend of mine who had a permit along with all the other citizens told me that no one ever came from out of town and robbed any business or homes, or assaulted any of the towns citizens. I guess if you don't know if your next victim is packing a 357magnum you will tend not to be so brave. I carry all the time and if I ever feel threatened when out with my family I will not hesitate to blow a hole right through anyone who threatens my life. As I have always been told: It's better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.
#19 Oct 23, 2009
WE MUST BE THE CHANGE WE SEEK.
Our stereo typical agendas,
Must be spoken about respectively.
I DONT SEE ANYONE COMMENTING ON MY COMMENT,
ABOUT CARING FOR EACH PERSON IN OUR COMMUNITY, WHY NOT???
#20 Oct 23, 2009
Just ignore the idiot who loves a thuglife world. Blame the media for glorifying thuggery as the new rock and roll lifestyle.
#21 Oct 23, 2009
Say thug and slum enough and you get what you focus your energy on.
Yeah, I buy that.
Tell a child he is messed up and he will fill those shoes.
To say I side with them cause I don't side with you is simply childish.
That is as common today as crooks are in the government.
Street people hardly do the damage that our city is doing to us and it was them who allowed the people to build cheap apartments and too many houses.
The idea that kids on a street corner are taking over the city is too absurd for me to comprehend let alone calling them all bad due to a few.
American freedom isn't measured by what we refuse to tolerate.
Nor is caring for your country measured by your hate for another country's people.
There are other options.
Anger is the tool of a fool.
