Another reason why The Wire is the G.O.A.T.


The writing staff of the show wrote this piece for Time magazine.  In this current, politically charged atmosphere, it’s worth remembering that there are many ways outside of the ballot box for a citizen to bring about a desired change .  I suggest you read it in its entirety, but the gist of it is:

If asked to serve on a jury deliberating a violation of state or federal drug laws, we will vote to acquit, regardless of the evidence presented. Save for a prosecution in which acts of violence or intended violence are alleged, we will — to borrow Justice Harry Blackmun’s manifesto against the death penalty — no longer tinker with the machinery of the drug war. No longer can we collaborate with a government that uses nonviolent drug offenses to fill prisons with its poorest, most damaged and most desperate citizens.
