ANTIOCH — A man was shot to death Sunday night, leaving police to investigate the city's second homicide of the year.

Trying to keep up with our sister city Richmond. The city council can continue putting their heads in the sand and saying that things are great in Antioch. It will cost us with more victims until we start admitting who is causing the problems in our community and stop it. It's always the same discription. Hell in most cases they don't even bother to include the discription because we already know.

I heard it on the scanner last night.
The shooters were described as three black or hispanic young males wearing dark hoodies running down K st towards 8 th. You know, the old section 8 housing.

I have always wondered why they shoot then run away LIKE SCARED LITTLE GIRLS. Why don't you stick around shoot it out with the police, TOUGH GUYS. They probably ran home to hide under their bed and suck their thumb. CHICKENSHITBASTARDS

GANG MEMBERS = SCARED LITTLE GIRLS

the man shot to death, was he a by stander, gang banger or drug dealer? Description would make a big difference. Ass long as there are no innocent victims involved..who cares if they fight over turfs to sell their drugs and kill each other. Thats probably what the city wants anyway?

I haven't heard who he was.
If he was a thug, watch as his family says "he was turning his life around". Happens all the time.

You care... right. My bad, in a way I care too. But what can you do to stop them. The answer is: NOTHING, or just hope they kill each other.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not preaching. If you can find a solid concrete cube to place them all in and give them all weapons and let them play "Last man standing" is ok with me. Or I suppose we could say the "Proper" thing and try and offer them some kind of skills in auto mechanics or wood shop or computer programing but half of them would probably use those skills to chop cars or hack into mainframes. So what can you do.

Sorry, They gave it to the people who will riot if they're ignored. You'll have to come back another time and maybe the system will have a slot opening up for you.

I would like to start an Antioch Vigilance Committee (AVC), and flood the streets with our (other private citizens) cars in the evening, and other times, citizen patrols, with speed dial to the APD. Can you imagine if just 1 percent of the city agreed to this, 1,000 people altogether at different times on patrol, being the eyes and ears of APD in all the places where they (APD) can't be all at once?

Sounds crazy, but it would work! Make it as difficult as possible for the riff raff (ANY type of trouble-maker), let them go somewhere else. Let them know they’re ALWAYS being watched. And while I realize that there are some deserving people on section 8 (disabled, elderly, etc.), how about the City Council enacting a law limiting section 8 vouchers to 1 percent of Antioch households, and try and limit Parolees as well?

Antioch does more than its fair shair in taking care of the lower echelon of society. Why can't some place like Orinda take more section 8 and Parolees?(I know the easy answer is a city like Orinda has loads of money).

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedules to read this. I know not to expect public backing per se of the AVC, just wanted to run this by you all. And I know you are all currently working very hard to make Antioch a better place to live.



I've had thoughts of moving out of Antioch, but I've never been one to cut and run. It should be some of the people that if they don't change thier ways that should be taking a one-way ticket out of Antioch, not the law-abiding, tax-paying citizens that want to make this city a better place for them, thier families, as well as future generations.
