Jim Salini, president of the North End/Waterfront Residents' Association, writes he's tired of stepping over three homeless people who sleep outside Haymarket station and says if they don't vacate the premises and police refuse to do anything, he's going to court and press charges against them somehow.
If I see any individuals lying there or loitering, I will immediately dial 911 and ask police to remove them. I will press charges. I will at the same time call the press.
I know that you cannot force individuals to go to a shelter. But they have no right to trespass on MBTA property, inconveniencing commuters and making our neighborhood and entire city look stupid or worse.
