Episode 2

To get inside information on the local drug trade, Rick has to do more than watch from the outside. But it’s not as simple as just heading up to the local crack house with cash in hand. He needs to be known as someone who can be trusted both to buy drugs and to never snitch to police if he gets caught. He needs someone to vouch for him and he knows exactly who it should be, the first family of cocaine on Detroit’s east side, the Curry’s.

With Hollywood making a movie about his life and some positive signs coming from the new Wayne County Prosecutor, Rick thinks he might have a shot at parole.
