“Condemned” by Derrick W.

I picked the word condemned because it epitomizes how a youth is treated when they are charged as an adult. Youth charged as adults do not receive any rehabilitation in adult jail and are subjected to a hostile environment. They become a product of this environment. On top of that, when they come out they have a felony on their record, which decreases their chances of employment: slim to none. That’s why I picked the word condemned because a youth’s future is at stake when they are charged as adult.
