Watching McNulty and his co-conspirators pull off their "serial killer of the homeless" hoax had me in stitches. McNulty outdoes himself with his crazy ass sh*t
On the one hand, one could say that what McNulty did was outrageous and intolerable.
On the other hand, it was a pragmatic response to an utterly dysfunctional legal system. America is a failed state. That McNulty felt justified doing what he did to achieve some measure of justice, merely illustrates how much of a failed state it is.
