The Top Ten
The stick-up-boy that had his very own moral code. This man would not even smile weirdly at the regular taxpayer, but he would be the most ruthless thing ever captured on television when it came to cleaning up the streets of Baltimore. He had a lot of heart, and mostly attacked because of personal reasons. Nobody knew, everybody just wanted to get away from him, well, except his boyfriends. No one could be anywhere near the game and not know this man's name.
Jimmy is probably the actual main character of the whole show. He goes his own way and is, as credited in the show, natural police and a very proud man. Sometimes too proud to even properly see what's around him.
Reginald "Bubbles" Cousins. Or Bubs.
The major player from the beginning. He was the king, and stayed the king... all things considered.V 1 Comment
Made me cry during his "Y'all don't get it" speech.
Probably the most interesting one out of the lads and sad ending for him. Underrated character in season 4 & 5
