Summary *Coarse Language, Drug References, Violence*This shocking true story follows a crew of young drug dealers who operated in south Chicago between 2001 and 2005, and how the feds set them up in a wired house and caught them, leaving behind a spate of devastated lives.Darrell 'Duck' Davis recruited his crew to help him take over the drug trade in Rockford Illinois. Operating a dozen crack and heroin houses, they sold about half a kilogram of heroin and about the same amount of crack every week, making about $5000 a day.They fought gun battles with rival gangs in the open on quiet residential streets, terrorised the neighbourhoods they inhabited and intimidated witnesses.But when the Rockford Sheriff's Department asked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for help, a task force moved in and turned the tables on them.But the lives devastated by their lengthy imprisonment continue to count among the drug war toll.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Wall to Wall for Channel 4 and MSNBC
