it doesnt work like that
If Im a criminal and I hustle up on 15th and susquehanna and shoot & kill somebody, I know who lives on the block that I hustle on and if somebody snitches, I know it could only be one of a few people
I got kids working for me and I got crackheads who will fill me in because the streets talk... It wouldnt take me more than a week to figure who said something because I got people in my pocket
Cops dont even wind up locking some of these dudes up after someone snitches on them ... Its like 'thanks guys for leaving this f*cker out here after I risked my life and you let him go on a technicality'
What the **** does don't snitch mean anyways? Does it mean don't report crimes cause we like the crime in our city? It just makes absolutely no sense. It's straight up retarded.
people watch too much TV and listen to too many fake rappers.. they dont be in hood so they dont understand the dynamic... people listen to the police talk this stupid sh*t and the rappers glorifying nonsense and they think its real...
there is such a thing as dont snitch and if you snitch on the wrong person you could get killed
let me bold it so you clearly understand what Iam saying Rap is not the issue here
these are real problems that would exist without rap music...rappers simply know of it and talk about it
Are there crooked cops? ABSOLUTELY! But you're taking it to an extreme thinking you should never report a crime because cops are crooked.
me personally, I never said do or dont..
I said that people who dont live in the hood under the pressure these people live under need to come down here and see for themselves instead of taking some rappers word for it or taking the cops word for it..The cops are no better than the crooks in the hood.. they act like a lawless gang themselves
they just wear uniforms....people who actually live there know this
thus they dont trust police anymore than they trust the crooks...
Once again, the rap community has turned an inner city problem into a marketing gimmick to fatten their bank accounts while they sit in their mansions and their old neighborhoods get destroyed.
this is true, but it isnt the central theme of the issue here... the real
issue is that police and society in general are scapgoating the innocent people and laying blame for a crime at their feet when it isnt their fault and I would defy anyone to come here and try living like these people do and then try telling this BS about how "they should do this" and "they should do that"
Rap doesnt have sh*t to do with it that except for the fact that nobody outside the hood would even know or pretend
to care if they never heard rappers talking about it
people have never trusted the police here going waay back before rap existed...thats not raps fault, thats the police fault.. the difference today is that crack has decimated the hood and the males are gone and family structure is destroyed....this sh*t would be happening without rap music...its just that alot less people would care or even seriously discuss it
