Is latest robbery related to the one on Cowper?

I think it's important that we all keep taking our evening walks and not allow these incidents to scare us off our streets. What else can we do?

After reading about the incident, I wondered if the ladies were just leaving someones house and getting into their cars, or if they had been shopping, or if they had just been taking a walk. I think it's true we shouldn't allow things like this to scare us off our streets. I think it is wise when going out for a walk, especially at night, not to carry your purse around with you. Putting your cell phone, keys and some ID in your pocket, seems a safer idea.

oh, do you mean like that engineer that was jumped by 3 guys a few years back and killed on that street near the postoffice in downtown Palo Alto? Yeah, putting his keys, no id and no money in his pocket sure helped him. He ended up dead.
At least if he had some money he could have thrown it up in the air and tried to run.
