‘Stop Snitching’ video roundup « STR8 SHOTS

I always thought that snitching really had to do with the fact that your doing the same crime so why are you snitching on someone else? Turn yourself in if you think what he is doing is so bad cause your doing the same thing. Am I right? It like a mafia type thing or something.

At least that has some sort of moral code… a sort of code amongst thieves. It still might be corrupt but it follow some sort of logic.

Well… anyway, here is a blog with videos of the topic in question.

  1. ‘Stop snitching’ is nothing new. Like anything else these days it’s now popular to blame it on Hip-Hop. Any corrupt organization more or less abides by this code. This INCLUDES law enforcement, government bodies, private corporations etc etc. Like I’ve said many times, in order to really debate this topic we need to establish what snitching really is.

    Example:

    Myself and a friend are out stealing cars. Someone sees us, and calls the Cops. We take off running. I get caught, but my buddy doesn’t. The Cops offer me a reduced sentence or some other form of leniency if I turn my friend in. If I agree, that’s snitching. In this case, I’m in trouble either way, so why turn my friend in?

    Regarding the ’60 minutes’ interview that featured Cam’ron, he played right into the hands of the media by saying he wouldn’t alert the authorities to a serial killer living in his building. The level of ignorance there is astounding.

    What if this dude decided to kill your mother? Your sister? Even you? Simply doing the right thing when the situation calls for it is NOT snitching.

    What’s even more amazing is all that ’60 minutes’ chose to ignore when researching this topic. There’s many reasons why poor, predominately black communities have no trust for the Police. Most of which go back long before the advent of Hip-Hop.

    If you ever need a refresher, check out the cases of Abner Loumia, Amadou Diallo, and Sean Bell. And that’s just off the top of the head. How can we trust anyone that comes into our communities to rarely help, but to brutalize and kill?

    What have they done to earn this trust?
