    I believe this is typical of the American film industry; glorify

    I believe this is typical of the American film industry; glorify the criminals and make the police look worse than the criminals themselves. The movie starts with the three main criminals in prison. Two older criminals are talking to the younger criminal about moving up in the crime business, but they speak as if they are talking about starting a legitamate business. The rest of the movie continues to glorify the main character as if he lives a legitamate life style. He starts a drug ring in New York, gets the pretty latino girlfriend whom he lies to, but turns it around as if its no big deal. This film does nothing but portray the life of a selfish. greedy. murdering his own people drug dealer as if he is so helpless and harassed by the police. It sickens me that the film industry glorifies these scumbags as if we should feel sorry for them...I don't. What is even worse is they make puff daddy, who also plays a drug dealer, as if he is the hero who saves the day and keeps the main drug dealer from getting busted. They have the classic line between the two...Hey bro, thanks for everything, yeah, not a problem anytime. Do we not remember these are two scumbag drug dealers!!!!. Stupid movie, does nothing but glorify one of the major industry's that is tearing America and the world apart.
