The Wire 4.4 - Refugees
Man, the way the school system is portrayed in The Wire gets more and more screwed up. Last week was a vicious knifing in Prez's math class, but this week really blew my mind. When Cutty is sent out as a "truancy officer" to pick up students once a month in order to meet minimum government funding guidelines - frak'ed up. "Soft eyes" is also mentioned again this time with Bunk teaching Kima the ropes at the homicide division. It looks like the kid Michael's gonna be in the middle of a tug of war for his soul between Marlo, Cutty, and Brodie.
