    The Antioch Police needs to get a handle on their City’s behavior. They have allowed this to get out of hand. There are a few major areas that need to be targeted and patrolled constantly. Maybe they could start doing the warrant/parole/probation sweeps constantly like they did a few years ago. That would help to get some of these criminals off our streets and stop them from hurting our innocent children.
