    This is nothing compared to when more criminals who have just been released from prison and into so called “community help centers” invade Antioch.

    This is coming very very soon. Council has allowed these “community help centers”, which basically are half way houses for moderate to high level threat criminals, to establish their services within 1000 feet of any school, park, or senior housing.

    Muggings, assaults, robberies.. will go hand in hand with the morning coffee.

    All of these changes are from the Council and Mayor YOU voted for. “Zero Tolerance for Crime”. … w o w
