This is Not Cool is a series of short stories written by criminal defense attorneys, and a private investigator, who are tired of seeing young lives wasted through ignorance.  Knowledge is power.  These books provide information for young people and their parents that can stop the downward spiral of our youth into the prison system.  The stories are short, powerful, and demonstrate how urgent the need is to educate our youth about the consequences of their actions.  None of the young people in the stories realized the very serious consequences of their actions until it was too late.  It’s time for the whole community to take a stand against the pipeline to prison.  The ball is in our court, don’t drop it.  Keeping kids out of prison is everybody’s business.

This is a true story about a man who was on death row for thirty-eight years.  He made contact with WFJ in July of 2011 asking if he could join our organization because he wanted to help keep kids out of prison.  We discovered that his case had fallen through the crack and a court order had not been honored.  We brought it to the attention of the court, and he was finally taken off death row in 2015 and given a life sentence with the possibility of parole.  Roger has been incarcerated since he was 18 years old.

The purpose of this book is to help young people make choices that will keep them out of jails and prisons. It will also help parents take steps that will help them avoid the heartache and sorrow that they suffer when their child is sentenced to prison for many years, for life, or to death row. The information is straightforward and easy to understand. THIRTY-FIVE YEARS ON DEATH ROW: THE ROGER COLLINS STORY shows clearly how one bad choice led to tragic consequences for Roger.

This book provides young people and their parents with guidelines and options that will teach young people, that there are consequences for their actions. One bad choice can change a life forever.
