"I knew I had to do something to shock him"

After the officers let Sean out of the car, he went running to his mother. “[Sean] gave me the biggest hug and said, ‘I’ll never do it again,'” she said. “I don’t know what they said to him.”

Hill said after the police left, “We all sat down and we talked about what happened. … And I told him his behavior and his actions affect those around him.”

“I’m glad I did this,” Hill said. “He will be 11 this month. He’s hitting that pre-teen age. … I understand that he will be going through changes. … But with all the things going on in Missouri and in Baltimore, I want to stop anything from happening while he’s young and impressionable.”
