Everywhere I search online, the articles say that the creator of The Wire based Davis on 3 Maryland State Senators and that Davis' penchant for saying "Partner" was from a particular person that all Baltimoreans would know without saying the name. I've only lived in Baltimore 4 years and don't know who this is or the other 2.
