Damon Pope (Harold Perrineau) was a ruthless man that seemed to have no care in the world. He was rich and powerful, he seemed to have everything at his fingertips. Damon Pope was a drug kingpin and the most dangerous and powerful gangster in Oakland. He was the overseer of many criminal organizations and gangs including the One-Niners. He also ran a business that kept him out of the spotlight so that he wouldn’t ever have to do time in jail, like majority of the people that worked for him.
Damon Pope always had his players in position to strike. He always had to be one step ahead of the rest, until Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) out smarted him. Jax seemed to always be one leap ahead of Pope due to the fact that Jax made sure he worked close with the head of the One-Niners Tyler (Mo McRae).
While Damon Pope thought he had a secure hold on everyone, but he was being played by his most trusted players. Sometimes it is nice to see a king fall just for being who they are. This kingpin sure had what was coming to him right from the start. Below is a video of the fall of the kingpin Damon Pope. Let us know in the comments below about you thoughts on this death.
