with the drug enforcement


He has operational experience in New York

and more recently in Los Angeles.

Over here, his principal capacity

is that of an... advisor.

We're very lucky

to have him with us.

He's a highly

decorated policeman.

Would you like to say a

few words to the troops?

I'm not going to say much.

Excuse me.

I don't think I have to.

As Mr. Donnelly said, I am here as an

advisor. I'm not here to get in your way.

The D.E.A. is extremely experienced at

establishing a task-force environment.

Getting everyone together like this,

exchanging needs, ideas...

It gives everyone the opportunity to

focus clearly on the real problems.

It also gives us a wider jurisdiction

when it comes to the arrests.

And who are we going

to arrest exactly?

Whoever's responsible for

what's going on here.

And who's that? All we've got at the moment

is a bunch of dead villains. Nothing else.

You're gonna have plenty of time to

talk about it, Carnegie.

You and Carver are going to be

showing Mr. Harris around.

Give me the keys.

I'm driving.

So, what do you want

to see first, Mr. Harris?

Frank Pierce's funeral.

That should be interesting.

He won't be able

to tell you much.

I'm sure there'll be a lot of

concerned friends present.

Maybe not friends, just concerned.

I'd like to hear why.

"I am the resurrection and

the life," said the Lord.

"He that believeth in me,

though he were dead, yet shall he live.

"And whosoever liveth

and believeth in me..."

Well. Real celebrity

turnout today.

See the gray-haired geezer

there, shaking hands?

You've got a real star there.

Sidney Callow. One of the last

remaining good old boys.

He was big in the 60's, early 70's.

They treat him like

fucking royalty.

- Another drug man?

- No, thanks.
