One day in the middle of summer, Rob Sterling woke up on what seemed to be a normal day. He had breakfast and then relaxed on his couch. He started to watch television. Rob lived in an apartment in the middle of New York City. He was a man in his mid-thirties. He was about six-feet tall, and he was a kind yet serious man. Rob was a detective for the New York Police Department (“NYPD”). As he was watching television, Rob received a call from the NYPD. They said, “Come to our station on Fifth Street, now!” Rob arrived at the police station and a police officer said, “Your boss is waiting for you in her office.” Rob was very worried that he was in trouble.

The government of the country in which the tiger was killed requested that you work on the case. A man named John Smith will help you. He is from Africa and will help you find your way around.” “Oh, okay.” “Ah, yes, I almost forgot, your flight is in three hours.” “Three hours?” “Do you have a problem with that?” “N-n-no,

Detective Burcks had enjoyed a great sense of relief following the conclusion of the case. He and Jesse had been written about extensively in nearly every news outlet in the country, most exaggerated extensively, but this time Burcks didn’t mind. He had just finished reading the most recent piece about Peters in the Tribune when he looked at his watch and concluded that his day was over. He stood up, put on his jacket, and was almost to the door when his phone began to ring. Giving it a moment’s thought, Detective Burcks turned his back to the phone and closed the door, thinking to himself not this time.
The man is chained to the desk, and a beaming light pierces his robin egg-colored eyes. The next thing he hears are muffled voices. The voices now become more clear, and then the first words become comprehensible,”We caught you”. The man then hangs his head in mortification. He was a world class criminal, and had never been snagged before, until now. He has no idea how they captured him. He had hacked into the police department's network and checked on their painfully slow, monotonous progression of their investigation into his previous offenses. Then he remembers the story he heard flash on to the news, “Police Department need to hire more Shrinks to help Reduce Crime.” He then had that moment that in the movies, lightbulb magically appears
Whether he is seen as a paragon of justice or a cautionary tale of self-destruction, Eliot Ness managed to do some lasting good in his time. Despite his haphazard social life and questionable choices, none can deny that he was crucial to a large scale reformation of the police forces not only in Cleveland, but all over America. His actions while on duty proved that the law could be enforced in a proper and honest way, inspiring many to join the police force even to this day.

Later, the police found Mark?s fingerprints around and inside the car, where he had been talking to the lawyer, and even on the gun. FBI agents and local police all suspected that Mark knew more than he was telling them. Mark hired a lawyer, Reggie Love, to help him get out of the mess he put himself in. A couple newspapers got word of the fingerprints of the boy and they quickly made up stories that Mark was now suspected to be the killer of the lawyer. Mark realized that the best thing to do would be to let the police know where the body was and tell them the truth about everything he knew. The next day, he and Reggie had an appointment with some FBI agents. On the way to his lawyer?s office, Mark ran into a man obviously in the Mafia.

Unusually, from the outset, The Wire does not have a clear protagonist or villain. Instead, the series depicts the criminals, the police force, and the politics that impact upon the police investigation. As the series expands over the following four seasons to encompass almost every aspect of American urban reality, including the workforce, the political system, the school system and the newspaper industry, the drugs investigation remains as the one common thread throughout. (Sabin, Wilson, Speidel, Faucette, & Bethell, 2014, pg. 154) Ultimately, The Wire over its 60 episodes is not concerned with a single protagonist nor a single case, but multiple characters and systems building a complete picture of the American city in decline. Through the window of Baltimore and the lens of the drug trade, it views and comments on universal contemporary realities. (Telegraph, 2009)
