    It wouldn’t be a normal week in antioch without a shooting.

  2. Julio says:

    RJB why does it happen at Williamson Ranch so much? Almost like 8th Street or 20th.

    • RJB says:

      To get a good picture of the situation, I’d start with the frequency of section 8 renters in the area, then do a criminal background report of these renters for similar crimes and or gang affiliation.

      Has anyone ever claimed that section 8 increase property values and quality of life? That’s a hard one to sell to anybody.
