WOW Antioch has now become an infested crime ridden area of the Bay. Richmond and Oakland were among the worst with violent crime and now Antioch is hit hard with it. Richmond has really changed for the better and Oakland is on the way of cleaning up the city of violent crime which is already way down but what made Antioch become such a bad city? Yes there is a lot of section 8 housing but it seems like the city in the last year has seen a dramatic up tick in crime in all areas. Antioch was on the right path years ago with all the new building of homes and businesses and golf courses but what went wrong? Very sad indeed for the people that bought that now have to stay in a city that is so dangerous. We all hope it gets better for everyone.

It's unfortunate that the CITY and homeowners allowed for this to happen. The idea is to create communities with responsible people and give our next generations the opportunities to become better and successful. So on the topic of section 8. Yes it is out there to help, but many are taking advantage and abusing this privilige. Just like the housing industry burst its bubble and now there is a reform to practice good real estate, the same should go for cities such as Antioch. buy homes and live in them, establish a community, kids should have good schools and good friends. Neighborhoods should be clean and worry-free. Businesses and the CITY should not allow loitering that shows a pattern (for the worse). Parents should discipline their kids and be on top of how they behave and take appropriate action - praise and reward for good behavior too. all in all - enough is enough. clean house. elected officials, do your jobs and take a look at what the city is becoming. don't let good cities go to waste. And for those individuals that make a bad community a bad community, let's enforce the law and either they abide or leave. This is rediculous and people should take action for the better. Clean HOUSE!

Oakland and Richmond are now better that all those losers left and went to Antioch. Now look at Antioch it's just as bad as OAkland and Richmond were. They leave one city to terrorize another. Antioch is a very small city compared to Oakland but relative size to Richmond. Just can't seem to get rid of the trash no matter what you do. What is it about being in a gang and then having to defend for your life the minute you join? The mentality of these people are incredibly challenging what the hell are you standing up for? A color? A street name in a neighborhood? Never understood it and never want to. It's a culture that is far from where I want to live and raise my family.
Put them all in one big room and then let them all take care of one another and you watch our street and cities will become a safe place to live again.

I have lived here for 43 yrs and been on both sides of this. Antioch has no consequences that will make someone think twice about commiting crimes. People are losing their jobs and homes and just giving up. Businesses need to stop letting these hoods hang out in front of stores selling drugs sex and hot items. They let these people hang out all the time and then wonder why they get robbed. Its got to stop before citizens start taking action and more innocent people and kids are hurt.

The negative attitude of Antioch's current residence are to blame for its current state and general perception. If you want to make a difference shut the hell up unless you have something positive to contribute. Pick up the phone when you see a problem, get to know your neighbors. I'm sure you are unhappy if you're stuck in one of Antioch's armpits but overall this is one of the best places to live in the US, I travel 125,000 miles a year and ive seen it all, there ain't no place like home.

I am relocating to california from florida for work and I have no idea where to live. After lots and lots of research my standards have dropped greatly. All I am looking for is a house with a yard of some type in a neighborhood I can feel safe in walking around. I am willing to spend up to $2000 a month so long as the neighborhood is safe. Found some nice homes in Antioch and in Bay Point. Any suggestions?

Unreal
I moved here from Phoenix when I was 3 Im 29 now. Antioch used to be a family oriented town, friedly and welcoming. Now its no where near that. The city is full of people with bad attitudes, hunger for greed and power. Section 8 surrounds us and each day the crime is worse. With only 36 police officers on board with this city they cant keep up. Stop building and over crowding with section 8! All you low lifes, wanna be thugs who think a way of life is to hurt, steal and kill have natural KARMA. Thats no way to live! Hate this town! Cant wait to move far far away. Keep your kids safe and dont move here!!!!!#925Native

Many "YEARS" back. There was an "ISSUE". With "Antioch Code Enforcement". About "R.V. Parking.

Which was about how an "OWNER Uses their Property. Antioch Citizens "VOTED to Compromise" with City's Oppressing Authority.

Then came the massive influx of "Section 8, Welfare Mooching Property Investors.

Antioch Citizens had a chance. "THEY" (as in identification of the cause) including "JIM SMITH" as an organizer, with the help of his neighbors, THREW AWAY, Antioch's Citizens, freedom held in Property Ownership.

Tossed it down the drain. Letting all who are the hub of every complaint, I have read here at topix !

Are each of you still feeling "Intelligent" NOW ?

I said then. An I say today. Each of you are "FOOLS". Lacking Life experience to make such Judgment's which involve giving up Property Rights of others, assuming responsibility for a BREACH in their Constitutional Rights ! YOU FOOL'S !

Section 8 has destroyed this town... and thanks to obama we can expect more of it.

Watch the video of the efforts by the Obama administration to forcibly integrate neighborhoods.

Folks,
Section 8!

When you get these liberal local politicians who offer free treats, entitlements, easy outs, you only get those who are takers. You end up drawing in that mentality. That is why this president is bad. Not saying Bush was a saint but folks this pres is catering to the same stuff. Actions prove more than words. Antioch is proof on a smaller scale that the only way for us as a society to make it is to do so by working hard regardless of what we do for work. We can't continue to vote for handout type believers. Our system can't have more takers than givers. The pot is there to help for short term situations, however we have career welfare recipients and people who vote for a living instead of working for one. This will eventually come full circle and the takers ideas and policy will fail.

The plan to destroy middle class neighborhoods has been in the works for many years. Now it is rapidly accelerating under Obama...

HUD Proposes Plan to Racially, Economically Integrate Neighborhoods

Move would allow Obama administration to institute policies that would better integrate communities - http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2013/08/0...

Who do you think they're going to stick in that vacant house next to you? A hard working citizen?

No it's going to be some crack head democrat voter, Shaniqua with 8 kids and 8 baby daddys, the latest parolee (especially now that CA is being forced to empty 10,000 out of prison).

Get ready for the collapse, because when sh1t hits the fan and you've got all this scum embedded in your neighborhoods its going to get ugly.

I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real estate values are fueled by the mix of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nature of these communities, an example of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self improvement by hard work and a self-reliant can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation.
