    Typical Monday in Antioch.

      Sunday and Monday Mr. Brown! The count is mounting.

        Right about that, Julio.

        Antioch is king of crime in the far East Bay. Crime is so ridiculous here one has to laugh about it.

        Just read an article about the new police chief giving out “friendly citations” to people that are easy targets for vehicle burglaries. Ridiculous. It’s like punishing the law abiding citizens while leaving the bad guys alone.

        • Julio says:

          Have to like this friendly citation RJB. It is just informational to help people and it is given out by the police cadets who need the community contact.

          Perhaps after receiving the friendly citation they are no longer dumb enough to be targets for criminals.

          • RJB says:

            I can see your point.

            Howerever, Some people are just tired of seeing the bad guys not being minded at all, but rather being the focus.
