In case you’ve missed it, HBO is currently running “The Wire” marathon over the holiday season. People who already adored the show are getting a refresher course in just how well written and true to life “The Wire” was. Those tuning in for the first time are being blown away by its grit. One of the more poignant moments of the show addressed the war on drugs and the police department’s approach to the community. The clip below talks about “war,” the need for adversaries, and how that plays out in the communities where the “war” is being fought. Press play and get a little bit of fictional truth to apply to your community mindset. Those who know will say “Ashe.” Those who don’t … well … this is food for thought.
