The Crown attorney spoke first. She read Jorge Torre’s long list of charges and convictions … She concluded by arguing that I had shown no remorse for my actions. Her final statement was one I 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. But 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. But 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. https://www.jorgetorresministry.com/about
