The cop, Ellis Carver, is the commander of the Western District's Drug Enforcement Unit in season three of "The Wire." In previous seasons, Carver and his buddy, officer Thomas "Herc" Hauk, represent precisely the kind of policing that David Simon's show attacks: that of brute force, stop and frisk, and broken windows. Round up everyone and something will stick. As Major Howard "Bunny" Colvin points out, the language of the drug war has infected these officers. They see policing as a military activity and function as an occupying army.
