    • Burrell: (to Rawls) To Carcetti, I'm a hack. Royce was no different. Maybe I am, but every day they send over a new priority. "Go after the bad guys. No, change that, make quality of life cases. Get on top of the murders. On second thought, run the whores out of Patterson Park." You think the Mayor tells the schools how to teach kids? Or the Health Department how to do it's job? Or sanitation how to pick up trash? But, get elected, and suddenly, they know police work. You might think you'll be different, when you sit here. But it won't. You will eat their shit.
