    3rd this month. If the Antioch Police provided any type of patrol in this area it would be a little safer. I must say i live directly in the area where this happened and I never see the police unless someone is dead or they are called. I have kids and it would feel safer if they were seen more on patrols and not just when called. It would seem that if this many people are killed in one area this would set up a flag and someone at the Antioch police would say ” Hay I think we need to increase patrols in this area its getting bad “.
