    I guess this can go here

    The idea of snitching has let crime run wild in this counrty. I want to ask ya'lls opinion about some scenarios?

    Your neighbor hears a pedophile/registerd sex offender talking about wanting to sodomize your son, should he snitch?
    A guy driving by sees someone coming out of your house carrying your guns, should he snitch?
    A older couple hears a bunch of gang bangers talking about plans to rape your wife in the park, should they snitch?
    An employee sees another employee holding a revolver in the Rest Room talking about shooting people, should that employee snitch?
    Your kid's best friend sees your kid doing drugs, should he snitch to you?
    A kid hears that a student is going go into your kid's classroom and shoot a bunch of kids, should he snitch?

    Or do we maybe need to change our definition or views about 'snitching'?

    I think the anti-snitching talk is propagated mostly by drug dealers and gang members.

    Especially since they regard police reports made by a victim of theri violent crime as equal to one of their fellow dealers turning them in for a lighter sentence.

    teaching kids...

    How about changing the phrase "snitching" to something like "doing the right thing"?

    I am a snitch i guess lol ... waved a police officer down about three hours ago and informed him of a drug deal going on in a parking lot of a local gas station... I may not be a LEO, but I know what a drug deal looks like... hah... dumb drug dealers.

    I also call the police on people excessively speeding or driving dangerously.

    I think not 'snitching' is at the very least, morally wrong and in most cases legally wrong as well, just my 2 cents.

    I have no problem "snitching" if the crime directly affects me or an innocent third party.

    If I hear someone talking about the illegal drugs they are doing at home, who cares? I don't like the idea of the government telling people what they can or cannot put in their bodies.

    If I hear someone bragging about how they beat up their girlfriend, their ass is gonna get a visit from the boys in blue.

    The " Stop Snitchin' " thing IIRC, is from the thug-n-drug culture...

    Don't rat us out on our illegal activities.

    Creature has it right though...need to change from "snitchin" to "doin' right"

    Seems like a good topic for APS.

    Off topic here.
