Lytton Plaza - Out of contrl
Original post made by Downtown Resident EM on Dec 7, 2012
Every time I go to the plaza these days, it's overrun by the crazies and the addicts. When is the city of Palo Alto going to do something abou this area? The plaza is such a great place to hang out, and I love the work that has been done to beautify it. Now, if only we could enjoy it, without having to subject ourselves to all the insanity going on there.

Ewww! I don't blame you for leaving. Hopefully there is no next time for that, but if it did happen, do call the non-emergency police number. They usually have a few officers right downtown, and they could have a "talk" with the offender.
I would be mortified if I were there with my kids and that happened!

Did you call the police?

That is pretty awful.
Not that this is anywhere close, but I was sitting on the sidewalk at Subway, enjoying lunch in the sun, and one of the crazies walked by and he smelled so bad, my lunch was not the same after that close encounter.
I didn't call the police, since it's not a crime to smell bad, but indecent exposure is. Maybe if you point out the guy the police could still arrest him?
