So when Antioch residents read about this on Sunday about incidents it will go down as a minor accident? Let’s see, the thugs that supposedly assaulted a thug got away, then the thug with gun shot at thugs got away and a private citizen got in an accident. Yep stats will show only an accident. Good way to keep crime down. Just saying.
