    Who picks the photos for these posts? The robber had a knife, NOT a gun!

    Wrong.  That certainly is not my experience. I have lived in Shasta Lake for 30 years and I feel  and have been safer here than most of my friends who live in Redding.  I am not alone in  this experience.   With respect, bashing our community is not helpful or useful.

      The photo isn’t important.  What is that the police need help and are asking you for it!

      I know people who live in Shasta Lake and are safe.

      I live in a good neighborhood in Redding.  Two men tried to break in my home at 3:30 am, and then a couple of days later another one tried.!
