    On a not so different note, I was at FoodMax the other day after 8PM. Of course the self-checkout was closed and only 2 registers open. A lady decided the lines were too long and walked out with a bunch of stuff in her arms. Walked right past me, complaining about how they should open another check stand and she ain’t got time to wait to pay for her stuff. My point? Both are robberies. The people committing them feel entitled to whatever it is they want and will do whatever it takes to get it. And City leaders can’t understand why businesses aren’t attracted to Antioch.

    Good point Me. Our city leaders just will not listen either.
    They think everything is wonderful after all we have that great Volkswagen parking lot that is robbed every night. It brings in NO income what so ever but boy oh boy what a wonderful thing to have.
    This is as far as their vision goes.
