These Quotes From ‘The Wire’ Will Make You Glad That Rawls Isn’t Your Boss

Features Writer

Over the course of five seasons on HBO’s The Wire (available to stream anytime on HBO Now), William Rawls (John Doman) may have moved up in rank, but he loomed large in his perpetual authority over the murder police that were under his command in the early going. Rawls was a hard-nosed, tough-talking, high-ranking member of the Baltimore Police Department who prided himself on being the kind of cop who did one thing best, and that was follow orders. A company man through-and-through, he never once bothered to waffle around his point, no matter how severe. So, the next time you feel like you’re having a tough time dealing with your boss, let these scathing quotes from Rawls remind you that things might not be so bad.
