My officer who arrested the JV said the shame of this was that if he had justifiably shot this child, he would still have to live with thought of killing a juvenile with a toy.
Should juvenile’s criminal records remained sealed after becoming adults?

Thibodaux Chief of Police Scott Silverii announced the arrest of a Juvenile for Terrorizing after he pointed a gun at an employee of a business in the 300 Block of North Canal Boulevard.
Monday afternoon, May 6, around 4:30 p.m. an employee, believing the three Juveniles who had entered the business were there to steal, approached one of the Juveniles to find a black handgun pointed at her. The employee was able to get the gun from the Juvenile. The gun, resembling a black semi-automatic handgun, was confirmed to be a pellet gun.
The Juveniles, who had discarded another pellet gun prior to Police’s arrival, admitted that the guns were stolen a month prior from another Thibodaux business. The Juvenile who pointed the gun at the employee was placed under arrest, and the other two Juveniles were released to their guardians pending a further investigation.
