‘I’m Giving Them Jesus’: Former Gang Leader Brings Life to Communities He Once Terrorized  | CBN News

LEISURE CITY, FL – Growing up in Leisure City, Florida was anything but easy for Rene Martinez, also known as “Level.” “I grew up without a dad,” Martinez told CBN News. “My mom was in the streets. [She] was into the Santeria, which is like a form of witchcraft, sacrificing animals all over me as a kid and I started seeing demons. They haunted me my whole life.” When Level turned 12, that darkness led him into a life of crime, which included breaking into homes, stealing guns and getting involved in drive-by shootings. In 1990, he started a gang known as the Latin Syndicate.
