The visuals created by Simon are meant to be a realistic portrayal of Baltimore, one that depicts the members of the drug trade as complicated people, not just evil caricatures, and where the wrongdoing of the police and government are shown. Moreover, the show has become one of the few applauded

Platizky’s use of historical facts and sources leads me to believe this article could help provoke a logical thought process for anyone

    My moment of self discovery was a coincidence. It was August 13th and it occurred right after my shift was over in Burger King. It started when I was going to Liberty bell gas station to hang out with my friends Julia and Deanne. They were two liberty bell regulars because they always bought cigarettes or “loosies” from liberty and they were pretty hard to miss. Julia was pale and had green hair but a green that resembled the statue of liberty. I met her through Deanne around January of 2017 and
