rape on Alma Street pedestrian bridge? Crimes & Incidents, posted by William, a resident of the Downtown North neighborhood, on Nov 13, 2009 at 12:17 pm
Saw this article in the Almanac about a rape occurring yesterday afternoon on the Alma Street pedestrian bridge (between Palo Alto and Menlo Park). Why was this story not reported in PaloAltoOnline? Web Link

That's Palo Alto Park. I've always wondered why our fair city resolutely neglects this signature park, which contains its namesake tree and that is viewed by thousands of motorists and train riders daily. Menlo's side of the bridge is far better maintained and much more inviting.

WEW: I can only imagine the lawyer feedy frenzy that a government-santioned facility for at risk people would attract lest something bad happens there. Perhaps second only to the legal claims arising from people who marginally survive a "train catcher" apparatus.
