In the third series of "The Wire", Baltimores police department struggles to crack down on a criminal drug ring thats sweeping the city. Bodies are piling up and a desperate mayor wants the tide turned before the upcoming election. But defeating the nefarious Barksdale crew is proving harder than they had anticipated; wiretaps have failed, as have stakeouts and street busts. The demolition of Franklin Terrace Towers -- the crews headquarters -- proves a temporary thorn in the side of Stringer Bell and the Barksdale crew, forcing them to improvise. But no matter how hard McNulty and company try, the dealers always seem to be one step ahead of the game.
