Shooting at someone in broad daylight, outside a busy train station, minutes after at least two local high schools end their school day. Sounds like he is right here he belongs. The courts should ensure a lengthy stay considering his boldness with this act and the great devastation he could have caused if he had better (or worse, depending how you look at it) aim. Stop letting criminals back out on the street with just a slap on the wrist. They lack common decency, morals and do not value life. They are a danger to everyone.

First and foremost, I hope that all those that have been harmed apparently over Generations will recover quickly.

This is my opinion, observation, and are known facts.

In the 1980s then-superintendent Paul Joyce of the Boston Police Department, The Courts, Health and Hospitals; and various other social service entities did Avery substantiv comprehensive study on the perpetuation of Street violence.

Even though that there are many factors that come into play that are already well document but the few areas of results I would like to focus on or as following below:

The perpetrator more likely knows the victim and vice versa.
The perpetrator and the victim at some point has came in contact with one of the various institutions mentioned above. More likely more than once.
The generational aspect of gang violence.
One of the many great solutions that I wish could be adopted and instituted, when addressing Individuals described above you must address all aspects of that individual's life including their family. And of course yes some individuals just need jail.

If the store is part of the station why aren't the Transit Police investigating the crime? Are all serious crimes on MBTA property handled by the Boston Police?
