Where's the logic in this?

Every once in a while, I see a black guy with one of those 'Stop snitching' or 'Warn a brother' t-shirts.

From what I understand (correct me if I'm wrong.), it's just a statement about how blacks mistrust the police.

Well, how is saying 'Stop snitching' gonna help crime around the 'hood'? Could ya explain that to me?

Especially, with all this black on black crime that's going on? You see it on tv. These folks crying about how nothing is getting done. Well, maybe if people would stop with the attitude of mistrust about the police and the snitching part. But I guess the attitude is still there.

You gotta remember, the police are only human. Mistakes happen. They can only go on what info they're given, or not, in this case.

Just because there's a few bad apples doesn't mean you have to throw the whole bunch out. It can't be help. It happens all the time in every aspect of life. It's unavoidable.

Let me put it this way: those 'Stop Snitching' shirts are going a long way to find out who killed Tupac and Biggie. Just think about that.

Thanks for reading.

For some people, the law is simply an authority to rebel against. Just like in fatherless homes how some kids get into all kinds of trouble and never finish school. It's a "I'm a rebel" kind of mentality.

Think about this one: Busta Rhymes had a bodyguard that got murdered some time back, and the cops know who did it but don't have enough evidence to convict the killer. Busta refuses to cooperate with the police, and the bodyguard who Busta says is a best friend to him lays in a grave while his killer is free. Why? Becuase Busta wants to look ghetto to his fans, and that ghetto image is hurt by cooperating with the police, even to solve a best friends' murder. Imagine that.

That's what I'm talking about. If you're so caught up in what kind of image you're projecting that you won't help the cops nail a guy who MURDERED your best friend, then there's something wrong with that.

Rebel or not, there are more important things in life that how people perceive you.

But we can't do anything if they want to keep the 'Stop Snitching' campaign up...
