Trivia

At the end of Dead Soldiers, Councilman Thomas 'Tommy' Carcetti is seen having an extra marital affair at a political fund raiser. The character Tommy Carcetti bears a strong resemblance to former Baltimore Mayor/City Councilman and Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley. This scene caused quite a kerfuffle and no doubt will continue to be a source of controversy as O'Malley runs for the presidency in 2016. See more »

Quotes

Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: So what do you think?
Det. William 'Bunk' Moreland: I think this is a tragic motherfucking miscarriage of justice. I think it deserves a special grand jury, and if not, the President should appoint an independent prosecutor. Oh, no no, no no, actually, I think Kofi Bryant and the United fucking Nations should get involved.
