Note, there is some profanity in this clip.
Namond’s dad is in prison serving life…his mom has had him out dealing drugs to build up his own rep and keep her lavish lifestyle. Here, he gives up altogether, letting down his guard he’s had up all season long…he knows where to go…but he doesn’t know where he can stay.
When a kid hits rock bottom, realizes running game and the street just aren’t where he needs to be….. where else can they go? Or as Duke said on Season 5… “how do we get from this world to that?”
Ideally, the local churches in these neighborhoods would be places of sanctuary, mentoring, job training, tutoring, and neighborhood transformation. Whos’ doing this right out there? And are they providing a model?
I keep thinking I don’t want to see how “the Wire” ends. How these 4 kids turn out. I guess what I’m really afraid of is will they find the new “home” they need to get them out of the cycle that’s bound to have them dead by 18….
