Associate editor snaps Marcial Torres for our cover

Marcial Torres 28, holds his youngest son, Brian, in the drive way of his parents' home in Vista, where he and his long-term girlfriend live with their three sons. He watches almost blankly as his five-year-old Damien and two-year-old Derrick (off camera) cruise around on bicycles. As Associate Editor Joshua Emerson Smith snaps photographs, Torres asks with a deep curiosity how he became a reporter, an accomplishment Torres' demeanor reveals as unfathomable in his world. It's hard to tell just how profoundly losing his legs, after being Tased multiple times by a sheriff's deputy, has affected him.
