    When doing a sweep of Antioch, I agree the Sycamore area is bad, but another really bad area is Cavallo & 18th st. That area is a serious blight on the entire town. Drug deals happening in the open as you drive by. (and sometimes you get caught up in the violence that spills out into the street AS you drive through) I live around the corner and I have to go so far out of my way to get to (example) Savemart for fear of taking a risk of being shot or car jacked, or accosted by some thug. A couple days ago as I drove past Cavallo I noticed a group of young men all doing what they always do on the corner and one of them had a baby in a stroller. Come on Police. DO SOMETHING about this!!!!

    I think that part of the crime in the cavallo neighborhood has to do with the hotel on the corner renting rooms to sex workers. There seem to be a lot of troubled girls who hang out there.
