/ -- Assaulted by cops and pigeonholed into a class of "bad kids" by Judges and attorneys, David Lee Windecher spent 8 years of his life angry and fighting against "the system."

David Lee Windecher beat the self-imposed negative cycle of street life through an unwavering faith in God, support from his family and sheer commitment to be better.
