All Due Respect
23 October 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

"All Due Respect" is the second episode of the third season of the HBO original series, The Wire. The episode was written by Richard Price from a story by David Simon & Richard Price and was directed by Steve Shill. It originally aired on September 26, 2004.

Detective Jimmy McNulty visits Randall Frazier, the medical examiner, at the morgue. McNulty has learned that D'Angelo Barksdale died behind bars, and he is skeptical of the official determination that the death was a suicide. He asks the medical examiner to investigate the medical records. Over drinks with Bunk Moreland, McNulty complains that the state police spoiled the investigation.

Shamrock and Country arrive with a resupply of narcotics for some of their drug dealers. Omar Little poses as a veteran returning from the hospital with Kimmy acting as his nurse to get inside the house. Once inside they draw their weapons and let in Dante and Tosha. They catch Shamrock and Country coming down the stairs with the money.

Councilman Tommy Carcetti visits Major Stanislaus Valchek's office and they discuss his ploy of using the subcomittee to pressure Acting Commissioner Ervin Burrell. Valchek calls it a win win situation - if Burrell caves he has an inside man in the mayor's office, and if he doesn't he gains political capital by harassing Burrell over high crime rates. He asks Valchek to broker a meeting with Burrell. Valchek meets with Burrell and convinces him to take the meeting. Carcetti tells Burrell that he is tired of being ignored.
