This Sunday (4/16) at 10:00pm eastern time, HBO will premier the first episode of a six-part miniseries called The Corner.  The series is based upon the critically acclaimed nonfiction book of the same name, which detailed drug dealing and life on the streets of Baltimore.  DRCNet has not reviewed the HBO series, but the book, coauthored by David Simon, a journalist and Edward Burns, a former police detective, offers a stinging indictment of the drug war and a searing look into how the enforcement of that policy has played out in one inner-city neighborhood.
