I worked in downtown Palo Alto for years. It went from a nice quiet place to hang out to a dangerous place, even during the daytime. Sad.

...and the explanation for her behavior is...? (Self defense? pandhandling and turned down and turned aggresive...or ?!)

I have altered my various vacation and business travels to avoid coming into PA by Caltrain after dark because of the lack safety and of security at the University station--especially on holidays and weekends when the Marguerite shuttle isn't serving the station and taxi's are elsewhere downtown. Late one Sunday night (after arriving on he 10 PM caltrain) I had to wait 20 minutes for a taxi and was the only person at the station until a thug wearing a dark hoody approached me in a threatening manner and I got on my cell phone to dial 911--only then did he move on but I was very vulnerable. Something needs to be done to create a safer environment there.
