    Not only that, but KTVU had the exact same story, same text, as the CBS 5 one. Who is conducting plagiarism here?

    Looks like all the fine folks from Oakland have moved to Antioch. Of course the cops there are prejudiced too. I would love to see someone do a real
    survey of the increase in crime and especially violent crime with the influx of the folks from Oakland.

    Doubtless they ran away clinging to their God, guns, and religion! Probably the perps were those violent renegade Tea Partiers.

    Hey, Smart Ass. Where did you get your information? I don’t recall seeing any information that pointed at any particular ethnicity. Even if it did, who the F*** are you to make such accusations at any particular ethnic groups? Take a look back into your own ancestry, or look at your own family and see who is co-mingling with who??? Are you all of the same ethnic background? Is that what gives you the perceived authority to shoot such comments out of your ass???
