Where I live (Belgium) snitching isn't really looked down upon much. Of course there's similar repercussions for snitching if you're heavy into that street life but other than that I've never heard someone make a big deal out of it. Over here if someone does something to you, you go the police. Almost everyone will tell you to go to the cops and nobody's gonna look down on you for it.
I've went to the cops and filed 3 charges on a guy who punched me in the face for no reason and I'd do it again any time.
Hardly anyone even calls that snitching, it's something people expect you to do.
However in the US it seems like snitching is pretty much a crime and I've seen some things that baffle me. Camron's interview where he says he wouldn't report a serial killer comes to mind. That's obviously much more extreme than the general mindset but still I can't wrap my head around saying that and people agreeing with it.
Personally I applaud snitching because it helps rid more criminals from society.
What exactly is classified as snitching in the US? What is your personal opinion on snitching? I'm interested in learning more about this so feel free to post all opinions and/or experiences.
Seems like the ppl you're talking about don't have a clue what snitching is and because of that you don't know what snitching is either with these examples
I think you need to get a much more informed and wider education on US culture if you really think snitching seems like a crime from what you've seen and a Cam'ron interview from almost 10 years ago
I get the feeling you're informed on how US is through reality shows, rap music, and bad comedies.
You saying you applaud snitching when you don't really know what it is is very funny though.
To answer the question, snitching is bad because you'd be telling on somebody you did crimes with in the past or telling on criminals you know of through word of mouth or who've you worked with in the past. That's within in the context of being a criminal and the whole no honor among thieves ****.
Thread was funnier than I thought it'd be
but now I remember who OP is

just like its better to kill someone you run over then pay for medical bills . theyll go back and make sure that person is dead when they get into an accident because funerals are cheaper and a one time fine. thats how the chinese are.
nah, its not that there's no snitching its that the police don't do anything
This is real footage taken at a police station, dudes standing around are cops.
WARNING video is pretty violent WARNING
What world am I living on?
Son ran back and forth like 50 yards just to kick the bodies cuz he was that mad.
When I saw the car hit, I was thinking oh an Asians can't drive joke will suffice but this dude ran them down. Is there any back story? He ran back like 3 times before ppl stopped him Edited by Master Zik - 10/11/15 at 12:56am
