Even in my line of work I don't like the conventional "snitch". We have paid "snitches" we rely on heavily. "Informants".

Snitching isn't just reporting a crime or illegal activity. It's reporting a crime done by someone you know. That's how I see it anyway.

To me snitching is just telling when you have nothing to gain from it. In other words just telling to get someone in trouble.

I mean if you tell on someone who you see killing someone else, then thats fine. But if the person isn't hurting anyone then there's no point.

So if ya boy shot up a family, you're not supposed to tell.

But if some random punk shots up a family and you happen to see, its alright to tell the laws.

OK

I thought a lot of people on this site were stupid and this thread just confirms it. Anti-'snitching' idiots. You'll learn as you get older and look back at this and say, "What the hell was I thinking? I can't believe I used to be so stupid."

Right. Too many people are stuck on the whole "law of the streets" thing. (especially since none of them are FROM the streets or else they wouldn't be posting on a message board)

Like i said. Telling on someone for no reason is snitching. Telling on someone who is hurting someone else (or stealing something significant) is not snitching, even if you know the person. Examples:

Telling on someone for cheating on a test: Snitching

Telling on your friend for beating his girl: Not snitching

Turning in an employee for putting extra fries in their friends bag at McDonalds: Snitching

Turning in your friend for murder: Not snitching

See how it works? Serious crime = not snitching. If you're helping someone significantly then its perfectly fine. If you telling on that person doesn't benefit ANYONE, then, and only then, is it snitching.

Murder and stealing something are two different things

rape and stealing something are two different things

If the police is questioning me, of course I won't keep my mouth shut. I would never walk to the police station to turn one of my friends in.

A snitch is a person who is not above doing the same as the culprit for whom he/she snitches on.

If he seriously killed someone and hurt a family really really bad then i would snitch on him.

IF you turn someone in, do you get paid for it?

OK

So your best friend's robbing a house, family comes home, and the father comes straight at him. Not knowing what to do, your friend panics, an shoots the father. Realizing what he just did, and that the rest of the family saw him do it, he kills them as well, and flees the scene. He arrives at your house, completely distraught, not knowing what to do, and looking for guidance. He can't tell his parents, and you're the best friend he's got.

And you... hand him over to the cops. Really? You'd honestly do that?

On the other hand, say you're walking down the street, and you see a drive by shooting. A child is caught in the crossfire and killed, along with some guys on the street who were the real targets. The child is dead. You happen to see the license plate and immediately memorize it. Do you tell the cops who did it, or just let the child (and the guys on the street) die without forcing the shooters to deal with the consequences?

Pretty sure both answers are obvious.

hmmm touche young Reppy...touche

But then i said that if you telling on the person doesn't benefit anyone, then its snitching. so you telling on the person WOULD benefit someone. On a normal test though, it probably wouldn't.

good point. I see people cheating on the SAT and ACT all the time. Usually they are indians and i join in just as long as they arent applying to the same place.

Anyways, what test do you take that gets you a scholarship, Reppy?
