Danger to Society / JORGE TORRES

The Crown attorney spoke first. She read Jorge Torres' long list of charges and convictions…she concluded by arguing that he had shown no remorse for his actions. Her final statement was one he will never forget: "He is a danger to society," she said, "and he should not be let out."

In 1991, Jorge Torres and his family moved from war-torn El Salvador to what they presumed would be a safe and simple life in Winnipeg, Manitoba. As a first-generation immigrant living in poverty, Jorge quickly began to feel that what he had - and who he was - didn't seem to be enough. Battling against cultural differences and emotional abuse, he compensated by creating a criminal persona that earned him power, admiration and respect. Caught up in a lifestyle of drug dealing, he found himself addicted to the hustle and willing to risk everything - including the lives of his own family. However, as the consequences of his actions escalated, so did his desire to change. Told through the eyes of a gangster gone good, "Danger to Society" is a journey through darkness, a search for identity and a message of hope. Most of all, it is a testament to the transformational power of God's endless grace.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
