Leicester man charged as being crude and lewd at Back Bay station

Transit Police report arresting Tyler Logan, 28, of Leicester, after he allegedly stared at a woman at the Orange Line fare gates while doing things a grown man shouldn't be doing in public, around 9 p.m. on Tuesday.

As he was being booked at TPD HQ on a charge of lewd and lascivious conduct, officers discovered he was already wanted on a warrant out of Boston Municipal Court for domestic assault and battery, "false fire alarm" and trespassing, police say.

Innocent, etc.

Another example of a suburban town that ships all its low level criminals and mentally disturbed into the city of Boston. Back Bay station has become a de facto homeless shelter.

Leicester actually shipped this man to Boston. Has the DA launched an investigation? Has Mayor Walsh spoken with the town administrator David Genereux?

Low level? I'm so sick of crimes like this that happens way too often to women to be assumed and brushed under the rug as men who are mentally ill committing low level crimes. Put his mentally ill ass photo and other perverts' photos on every train! Sympathy days are over.

How about get the mentally ill who commit low-level crimes the resources and treatment they need to stop doing these things. Rather than add stressors likely to make them re-offend. I expect it would be much cheaper for society in the long run to treat rather than incarcerate.

Um like what? On demand detox, and long term substance use treatment ? Medical Care, Long term behavioral health and psychopharm provided by DPH and Mass Health?Free Communitty Colleges, Counsel for Public Council legal aid? Diversion programs? It's not the Ritz but there are shelters so you don't sleep in the elements, day shelters, job training, RAFT, SNAP, Ssdi SsI and housing vouchers.
Just saying.

Los Angeles movie makers please help us! You're the only power that has been able to block off streets to force the homeless out of our sight!

Deinstitutionalization of seriously mentally ill, dumping them onto the streets, shelters, jails-prisons has been an epic failure. It's also remarkably cruel. The US Supreme Court should take another look at that late 1970s ACLU lawsuit that resulted in massive deinstitutionalization. The election was allegedly about science & empathy.

DAs and courts also need to stop releasing so many for lame reasons. Crime has skyrocked because many predatory individuals have been released early or aren't being prosecuted for 'minor' crimes.

The old Boston State Hospital grounds in Dorchester and Mattapan is now a housing development. Other institutions around the state have been torn down. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_defunct_Massachusetts_State_Mental...

I second Quincy Center, cause there is no bridge to Long Island.

Could be easily re-purposed. Only issue is NYMBYism.

On a side note, that mental health facility in Government Center isone scary, dystopic looking place. Imagine what a paranoid schizophrenic is thinking inside that Darth Vader building.

The de-institutionalization actually started in the late 1960's, under President Richard M. Nixon. Many, if not most of these state hospitals, were extremely archaic---and brutal, which is why so many of them closed down, in the first place. Most mentally ill people can be cared for within their communities, rather than being institutionalized, although for some, institutionalization is a necessity, and they don't keep mental patients in them as long.

Unfortunately, the de-institutionalization was very poorly thought out and executed, resulting in hundreds, if not thousands of people being turned out into the streets, with no place to go, and no follow-up care, either, and were unable to get housing. Many mentally ill people were not wanted by friends, neighbors or families, either. At least in part, as a result of the de-institutionalization being so poorly thought out, many of the mentally ill became homeless as a result, as well.

But it started under JFK not Nixon. And I think JFK had good intentions, and would be shocked to see how things have turned out. It was more radical leftists who pushed hard for deinstitutionalization of mental patients. After the U.S.S.C ACLU lawsuit was successful in the late 70s, the pharmaceutical industry got involved, pushing drugs as a type of panacea. Highly profitable monetization kicked in. Government, regardless of alleged ideology, Democrat and Republican, instituted out-patient care in a community setting. Alleged cost savings were touted. And drugs. That kindly, humane community setting has morphed into living homeless on the streets, the subway, dangerous shelters, jails, prisons.
