The young man has seen the men in his family go to prison and even though he does not explicitly state it, you can tell he is worried about what his fate will be. This is shown by his quote, "Every man in my family has been locked up. Most days I feel like it doesn 't matter what I do, how hard I try—that’s my fate, too." I believe that if one sees something done by someone close to them, they will react to what is seen, which is what mostly happens with these kids being talked about in this article.

The low esteem of the teenager make the teen feel inferior to the rest of the students due to the comments.

He started raising a family and had his own business. When the SWAT team and the police come barging through his door and yelling, "You now need to come with us you are being booked in jail," that just isn 't right. First off, if the state is going to come thirteen years after he had received a new life, and take him to jail would force his family to go through more struggles than they already have had. That would make it their fault and therefore he should not go back to jail because the state couldn 't figure out how to book him in jail. Say Mike goes to jail he will be there a nother thirteen years and won 't be able to raise his kids, run his business to take care of the needs of his co-workers, and have a normal life.
