Antioch looks at ways to entice veteran police officers
The City Council on Tuesday will consider amending its contract with the state's Public Employee's Retirement System to incorporate a 3 percent at age 50 formula for public safety hires and 2.7 percent at age 55 formula for employees hired for other city jobs.

Well its not cool when "some" members of the Antioch Police Department in CA are the criminal themselves.....
This is why the Contra Costa District Attorneys Office trys very hard to look the other-way by pressing an arrestee to that a "plea-bargain" when it is discovered that a member of the Antioch Police force has committed a crime during the course and scope of their duties.
Name one case where the Contra Costa District Attorneys Office has arrested, charged and convicted an Antioch Police officer for "perjury" or assault under the color of authority!
Antioch Police in CA will have a very hard time recruiting "Lateral-Police Officers" because Antioch Police Departemnt and its city has a very poor reputation of racial bias and lack of professional growth opprotunity.
If you want to be a basic patrol officer with little or no addtional progressive training for the rest of your police career...come join the famous Antioch Police Deaprtment in California. You will have a blast being a hick-type star like the police officers on RENO-911.

The only reason the broke-ass city of Antioch is promoting increased pension benefits to "attract and retain" employees is because the public safety unions controll the city council and city manager. Even though the proposed BS only extends for a few months the cost to Antioch taxpayers will last for DECADES. The truth is that Oakland PD received more than 2000 applications for forty positions. They tested 1300 applicants.
Antioch is alredy BANKRUPT. The only people not privy to the inside scoop seem to be the bafoons managing the city, and the citizens that will be stuck with a huge bill - and I've been saying this , regarding antioch, for at least two years. Antioch is broke and there is know reason for this city to be paying the ridiculous level of total compensation they're paying.
Both Vallejo and and Antioch are two of the highest paid departments in the entire nation.
If this is the best plan the police chief/department can come up with, then people should come up with a new police department. I've seen little evidence that the Antioch PD is any different than the Vallejo PD.

In the early '60's during the days of the "former" Soviet Union, Russian Premier Nikita Kruschev pounded his shoe on the podium of the United Nations and shouted to the West, "We will bury you!" Fearing an invasion from the Reds, America proceeded to build the most awesome military machine in history. Unfortunately, we forgot to guard our political homefront from being taken over by socialist - communist - liberal activists who would gain office and destroy American law by process of gradually installing the Communist agenda within our legal system and seperate branches of government. The Communist program from the start has been one which sees their revolution of 1917 succesful only upon total domination of the world.(See Brain Washing, A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics)
Americans, being the most naive people among the nations, now believe that Communism is dead because the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain have been removed. The ironic truth is that Communism has just switched names to become more "politically correct". Today it is called international democracy. The reason that the Berlin Wall came crashing down is not because Communism is dead but because they have achieved the planned agenda to communize the West, including America. Washington D.C. has indeed become part of the New World Order of atheist governments. With the last vestiges of Christian law having been removed from "American government" over the last twenty years, there is no longer a threat of resistance against world Communism. In reality, "American government" became part of the Iron Curtain, thus there was no more need for the likes of a Berlin Wall.
Once again, in their foolishness, the American public has believed the lies of their "leaders" who applaud "the fall of Communism", while they have sold out the country to anti-Christian, anti-American statutes and regulations on the federal, state, and local levels. Posted below is a comparison of the original ten planks of the Communist Manifesto written by Karl Marx in 1848, along with the American adopted counterpart of each of the planks, The American people have truly been "buried in Communism" by their own politicians of both the Republican and Democratic parties. One other thing to remember, Karl Marx was stating in the Communist Manifesto that these planks will test whether a country has become commmunist or not. If they are all in effect and in force the country IS communist. Communism, but by any other name...??

1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rent to public purpose.
The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868), and various zoning, school & property taxes. Also the Bureau of Land Management.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
Misapplication of the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913, The Social Security Act of 1936.; Joint House Resolution 192 of 1933; and various State "income" taxes. We call it "paying your fair share".
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
We call it Federal & State estate Tax (1916); or reformed Probate Laws, and limited inheritance via arbitrary inheritance tax statutes.

We call in government seizures, tax liens, Public "law" 99-570 (1986);
Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of "terrorists" and those who speak out or write against the "government" (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
We call it the Federal Reserve which is a credit/debt system nationally organized by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. All local banks are members of the Fed system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the State.
We call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver's licenses and Department of Transportation regulations.
7. Extention of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
We call it corporate capacity, The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture. As well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Evironmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.
8. Equal liablity of all to labor. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
We call it the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two "income" family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920's, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Fedral Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000.
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.
We call it the Planning Reorganization act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public "law" 89-136.
10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.
People are being taxed to support what we call 'public' schools, which train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based "Education" .
So I ask you...does changing the words, change the end result? By using different words is it all of a sudden OK????? We are so "smart," aren't we??

"That". Could be YOU ?
In the vast streces of your mind. Consider ?
On Confrence floor of the United Nations. There is a hugh "Symbol". At that symbol. Individuals from all Nations. Have seats on the outside edges. That "Symbol" a giant desk in the shape of a "C".

You should be Afarid !

I was curious is to how much Antioch Police make???
#17 Nov 25, 2012
"To Much !"
#18 Nov 25, 2012
Think about WHY. Why they (the Kings Soldiers) are payed so much in Antioch ?
The reason is. Antioch is the City on the border of the developement hub of Nothern California. The King, must build up forces & develope policies (like R.V. Parking) in preperation for further developement.
Bart will be going to Livermore. There will be a train going to Sacramento. Creating an over populated meca of communists Socalism never before seen on Planet Earth.
All will be done with the blessing of the Voters and their cronie Politicians. If the War does not start in Antioch, Developers will have free reign to extract most all Constitutional Rights in the name of fenced communities. C.C. & R's.
Should I say, Most all of the readers here are "CLUELESS" ! The monitors and CCTimes reporters work for the 45 Goals of Communism.
I work for NO ONE !

Sounds like they will fit right into VPD, the only drawback is we might be subjected to a Federal takeover, so trigger happy cops like we have ini Vallejo or Antioch would not want to work for an employer that would hold them accountable.
#21 Nov 25, 2012
you might be taken away in a straight jacket, soon. notice the thugs are not reaching for wallets or fake guns these days?
are we still supposed to be lawyering up for all the pot raid lawsuits?
#22 Nov 25, 2012
So far this year the VPD cost us taxpayers over $4 million, and ar e repsonsible for one third of the homicides in Vallejo...so begging the question who are the thugs here?
