Escaping Gangs: Parole, Prison, and Pastors

In this episode, he tries to reach out to two former gang associates. The first, Junior, is about to complete 18 months of parole. The other is on the first day of his release from prison. We see both men trying to resist the lure of making illegal money and the temptation to return to gang life. And we see how dangerous it is to be in nearby rival territory once you no longer have the protection of the gang.

Meanwhile, another pastor and his team take radical action to remove 16-year-old Jahiem from his area where his drug dealing brings him into contact with gangs.
