CRIMINAL LAW LITERACY & CRIME PREVENTION
Did you know?
There are thousands of laws pertaining to the criminal justice system. These are laws that well-meaning people break on a daily basis without knowing it. Every day, thousands of people are, unknowingly, gambling with the law and counting on luck that they won’t get caught on the wrong side of the law. The consequences to individuals, their families, and other loved ones, are devastating. Loss of freedom from jailing and imprisonment, financial hardship and bankruptcy, broken families, disenfranchisement and in some cases, being put to death, are just a few of the results.
A Simple Truth
Where the legal system and criminal penalties are concerned, knowledge is the ultimate form of prevention. In fact, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound (or a lifetime) of correction.
Torinity’s founders, Travis and Trinity Townsend are brothers, attorneys and originators of the When the Cops Come Knockin’: Criminal Law Literacy & Crime Prevention series. Before they earned the credentials to practice law, they (like many people) unknowingly gambled with decisions that could have landed them squarely on the wrong side of the law.
Travis and Trinity converted their youthful ignorance of the law into a drive to obtain law degrees and transitioned from the challenges of a poor education environment to trailblazers in education; from business as usual in poor communities to business owners and lawyers focused on empowering all communities. Using their legal expertise and business savvy, our founders set out to educate everyday people—in urban, suburban and rural communities alike—on the criminal justice system through innovation and attentiveness to what PEOPLE WANT and NEED TO KNOW!
When the Cops Come Knockin’ is a movement to educate all citizens on criminal laws that could mean the difference between freedom or imprisonment, financial hardship or prosperity, and life or death. Torinity is taking the “ignorance” out of the maxim “ignorance of the law is no excuse.” By promoting criminal law literacy, When the Cops Come Knockin’ teaches citizens to better identify potential criminal activity and empowers them to change course, live law-abiding lives. Also, When the Cops Come Knockin’, informs citizens of their rights, and how to assert and protect them responsibly.
