LETTER: Tribal member wants juvenile justice laws changed


Last year, my wife’s car was stolen from the Casino parking deck. The next day, we got it back with thousands of dollars worth of damages. The three juveniles (tribal members) were caught on video stealing it. The police named them all. Do you know what happened to them? NOTHING. So, apparently juveniles can do whatever they want with no repercussions. When will the Tribe change these laws to make sense?
