"The Wire” is one of the best shows of all time and possibly even one of the most important works of fiction in the past 50 years. Yet, the term “fiction” is almost misleading. These events are real. These people are real. Day in and day out, we wage war on drugs without changing strategy or the broken system producing it. From the opening scene where McNulty and a murder witness discuss the fairness of “the game,” “The Wire” makes a clear statement: The system is broken, incapable of upholding the law in the context of right and wrong and exploited by those in power to stay in power."
