I really like all the points Sharee brought up about D'Angelo. His character is really conflicted. It seems like He can't really decide whether to play the game or get out. He talks openly about murders he has committed, like the woman Avon had him kill before she spoke to the police about him, but yet he was almost crying when McNulty and Bunk had him writing a letter to Gant's "children". He shows his softer side with the girl at the strip club, and he does often defend some of the younger kids when they are being treated badly. He is obviously bitter about his situation, as is evidenced by the talk he had about chicken nuggets. He knows that guys like him are only working hard so that the guys on top can benefit from it. He is stuck doing the dirty work in the streets, but he still can't (or won't) get out of the game.
