I agree that we need more revenue. But NOT to increase the polticions pay. We really need more police officers.
When we had shootings in our neighborhood the weekend on 3/9 and3/10 around midnight, it was said tha they only had 7 patrolmen on buty at the time. So I would like to know who prioitizes the 911 calls that come in?
On the 2nd night of shootings 15 or so shots were fired. I sure would think there would be a lot of police action around. In fact I never saw any police action at all
Does it take someone getting killed before we get proper coverage ?

Why doesn't the overpaid Antioch city council (you folks really get paid $30K per year while city staff is still getting furloughed?)ask for some support from the CHP? It seems to be helping in OAKLAND. Looking at the thugs on Somersville road--it looks pretty similar to Oakland.
