The clip Richie explains the operation of the Essex narcotics squad from American Gangster (2007)
That was nice, man.
Just doing my melodious thing, baby.
This is the newly formed Essex County Narcotics Squad.
Our mandate is to make major arrests. No street guys.
We're looking for the suppliers and the distributors.
Heroin, cocaine, amphetamines. No grass under 1,000 pounds.
No powder under 40 kilograms.
Any less than that, then somebody else can waste their time.
We gonna be handling the big shipments, the big money and the big temptation.
I heard a story about you.
That you found a million dollars in unmarked cash
and gave that shit back. Is that true?
Yeah, I did. Anybody got a problem with that?
So do I, you know? I think about it every day.
I should be down in South Florida with a 68-foot cruiser doing fishing charters.
You and me, both.
But you know, I didn't, so here I am,
and we'll be looking to land other kind of sharks.
