State elected officials legislative assistants get caught on the wire. Everything you find in “The Wire’s” City of Baltimore, you find in Coatesville, PA.
Not much cinematic music. Music is on a car radio, in a store or house.
"The Wire" get's it. The SPLC get's it. The "War on Drugs" is about keeping black people and poor people that might vote for Democrats down.
But change is happening. Change that most people didn't see coming.
In 2007 motorcycle gangs moved most drugs.
I noticed the change in 2010. Oxycontin started it. White people addicted to Oxycontin moved to lower priced heroin.
Mexican cartels needed to upgrade.
Legal marijuana began to kill the illegal marijuana market. Mexican cartels responded, conceived a WalMart style, farm to customer heroin logistics system. The old Pagans & Hell's Angels drug distribution system can't compete.
Heroin is a white drug now.
The top suppliers are Mexico for heroin and China for fentanyl . The black slingers are the same. But the addicts are white. And there are white slingers in suburban homes now. It's an epidemic.
