    I cannot comprehend Tyler doing anything of the sort. Innocent until proven guilty…I just can’t fathom it.
    I trust the courts will find the truth…and I hope to God this is false…

    Me and my buddies exhibit this kind of behavior with each other all the time. And we aren’t even mentally handicapped. Heck, our wives even laugh!

    • Concerned Citizen

      That’s you. This is a health care facility , where such behavior is not condoned. These are individuals who don’t know what they are doing.

    This story at first might seem unnecessary because you’re like ok, some mentally disabled guy in mentally disabled housing showed his weenie to another mentally disabled guy..UNTIL you realized the residence is down the street from you and your family. Which makes it VERY relevant.
