a stop-snitching creed

• Don’t snitch on others just to save yourself. “Stop snitching is for those guys out there … selling more drugs than Noriega, and their only out is to tell on somebody. … If a (criminal) wants to be a Good Samaritan, OK. But send (him) to jail. Don’t give him immunity to do what he wants on the street.”

• Stop Snitching doesn’t mean stop talking to police. “It’s always misconstrued by the public, or the powers that be, that we’re trying to intimidate the regular people or the law-abiding citizens. That’s not what it’s about. … If that is your only outlet, to call the police, that’s what you do.”

• But witnesses have no obligation to help police. “Do your job — you’re the police. … I’ve been wronged by the system. Do you think I would help the system? … Do cops snitch on other cops?”

• The authorities can’t protect witnesses. “What’s happening to the innocent witness? They get dead or … terrorized for life.”

• Sometimes you must right wrongs yourself. “I’m a man, and I can handle my own situations like a man. … I’ve done dirt. I’ll admit that. So I can’t run to the police.”
