Jarad Nava is incarcerated for life for four attempted murders and is one of the boys featured in the Independent Lens film They Call Us Monsters, but in this excerpt from the film we get to know Yesenia, a 17-year old girl forever confined to a wheelchair after Jarad shot her in the back in a drive-by shooting. Yesenia doesn’t wish him dead but does want Jarad behind bars for 50 years. For his part, Jarad says “we chose the lifestyle we lived. If we didn’t the crime we’re accused of, or we did, it’s still the lifestyle we were around and chose.”
