That stunning second round

knockout was the crowning moment...

... of Wayne Barclay's

brilliant boxing career.

Since retiring from the ring,

he hasn't looked back.

Using the millions he'd won

from prizefighting...

... Wayne turned

his prodigious energies towards...

... revitalizing the neighborhood

he'd been born and raised in.

Starting with a few

fast-food restaurants...

... he soon moved on

to shopping centers.

Then movie theaters,

and then office buildings.

It wasn't long before the revenues

from these ventures...

... allowed him the opportunity to

tear down long-abandoned slums...

... and replace them

with clean, affordable housing.

And on the legal front today,

an unexpected development...

How come my fountain

keeps shrinking...

...every time you people

walk out of here?

Excuse me. Mr. Barclay,

there are codes we have to follow.

Look, I ain't asking

for Niagara Falls.

I appreciate that.

But the codes are the codes.

Look, I just want a damn fountain

that will make this place feel like... something special.

You know?

Just something to make

the local residents feel...

...that their part of town

is just as good as any other.

Wayne, quick, turn on the news.

- Tamara, we happen to be meeting.

- You need to see this.

You do need to see this, Wayne.

The early release which took

prosecutors by surprise...

... was approved today at

a state parole board hearing.

Rap-music mogul

Terrell Singletery...

... had been sentenced to

10 years for racketeering...

... money laundering and witness

intimidation among other charges.

But citing his outstanding

behavior in prison...

... and his contributions

to numerous charities...

... during his 18 months

of incarceration...

... the parole board commuted

his remaining sentence to probation.

Look, the DA promised the man would

be serving no less than eight years.

This was not supposed to happen.

Well, thanks to his hotshot

new attorney, it did.

All right, so what do you want me

to do about it?

Dig a hole and hide like a gopher?

The man's on probation.

He so much as spits on the sidewalk,

his black ass is back in the pen.

Not concerned about him

spitting on the sidewalk.

Terrell Singletery's been known to put

out a hit for disrespecting his name.


I did a lot worse than that

and I'm standing here, ain't I?

Come tomorrow, they will no longer

be monitoring his calls.

They won't be eavesdropping

when he's with his attorneys.

He'll be running the streets...

...and you wanna know what his

first order of business will be?

To send a message

to whoever put him away.

Wayne, please listen to me.

You need some serious protection.

Sis, I got protection.

Okay? I got protection.

I mean, why else are we paying

my head of security here?

You need to listen to

your sister on this one, Wayne.

- You need extra protection.

- Damn.

Look, let me tell you all something.

Wayne Barclay does not back down...

...from any motherf***er

on this planet.

- Wayne.

- Wayne.

Look, if Terrell wants a piece of me,

he knows where to find me. Know that.


Mr. Mullins...

...what exactly did you mean by

"extra protection"?

Mr. Singletery.

Mr. Singletery, over here.

Hey, what does it feel like

to be a free man, Terrell?

- Back off.

- How does it feel to be a free man?


We're just doing our job here, okay?

Don't be so heavy.

Uncle T, over here, let's go.

- All right, let's move, let's move.

- Get your hands off of me.

- Get the door. Come on.

- What are your feelings towards...

...Wayne Barclay, whose evidence
