Summary

The HBO series, The Wire, provides a springboard for discussing some of the most pressing criminal justice issues of our time. This book explores the law of wiretapping, drug possession, and sentencing. It considers questions beyond basic law, such as whether the police understand or follow the Supreme Court¿s search and seizure and confession rules. The book also examines broader questions, such as crime statistic manipulation, drug legalization, prisoner reentry, police brutality, the use of informants, mass imprisonment of African Americans, the distribution of limited criminal justice resources, and the media¿s influence on policing and public policy.
