The crack epidemic swept through Charlotte in the late 80s and 90s, bringing gang violence and turf wars with it. The Charlotte P.D. was working day and night, covering 388 cases between only six detectives. Despite the lack of sleep, Garry turned to the community for answers. Connecting and teaching the Charlotte youth about the dangers of joining a gang instead of just locking up everyone he could. He not only ingratiated himself with the inner city youth, but also with the families of victims to gang violence – who saw the good work he was doing and began to trust him. However, just as the tide was changing, a vicious serial killer Henry Louis Wallace came to town and changed the city of Charlotte forever.
