this is a blatant tangent from the current ATS thread :

would you snitch for covid

and naturally it didnt take long for the mantra :

" snitches get stiches "

to be thrown out

ironicly " oblivious " to its origins

so - what would you report in a civilised society :

rape , murder , child porn , human trafficking // slavery ,

cpome on - lets see what the " bottom line " of what criminality you would denounce - and what you would let slide ?

and of course - why ?

as a primer - i have at different times both ifnormed on and ignored shoplifters

the incident i informed on was 2 girls - in shool uniform [ a good school ] - attempting to steel spirits [ liquor ]

the guy a blatantly ignored - was a homeless chap - with a few cheep bits in his trolley - who was slidng tins of corned beef into a flap in his coat

yes - there is wriggle room - but i would preffer ansers - based just on the offence - not mitagating - or exacerbating circumstance

discuss

I'd snitch for a Klondike bar.



I'd also kill for a popeyes' chicken sandwich.

Crimes against person or property would be the ones I would report. I wouldn’t report crimes that occurred between two consenting adults which are none of the governments business. I also would be unlikely to report crimes against corporations or tax evasion.

I'd be happy to contact the authorities for anything that isn't a minor misdemeanor.

I belong to a group that doesn't get seated on juries BTW. We take a very dim view of crime. I don't know that I'd go so far as to say, "I hate criminals" because when I heard about how a prison made people stand around in floating sewage, I was outraged on their behalf. If I really hated them, I wouldn't care. But I am no fan of those who commit crimes.

"Snitches get stitches"? Yeah. And criminals get shot.

Dear ignorant_ape.

Look, i have seen plenty of stuff from the "other side of the law". I am truly not bragging about it, i wish that all of that would have never happened.

Yeah, they say "snitches get stitches" But i am not the one to give anyone stitches. I am the one who helps and heals people.

There is snitching, and then there is snitching. If a human life or health is endangered, i would inform the police. If you are hungry and steal some food, i would turn a blind eye and act like i never saw anything.

You don't tell me to discuss, or anything else. I recognize it's a cutesy thing the cool kids say these days, but I don't take orders from anyone. Figuratively or literally.

Seems to me like you just discussed.

I snitched you to the "unique, just like everyone else" police.

That's NOT how you punish naughty school girls.

Should we celebrate your over sensitivity and give some credence to your inane hostile but defensive reply or poke fun at you instead...?

Lemmings get pennies!
Snitches get britches
Politics get insanity

Ever notice, Humans have an endless amount of problems, with the most simplistic solutions...
Yet, our species is almost incapable of letting their ego go, to do it.

Money isn't the bane of humanity's existence, it's our damn egos.

Throw that crap away, it messed you up, since day 1.

Exactly this.

I would love to throw my ego away. My ego reeks like a donkey's backside.

Any advice how to achieve this?

Are you implying that ego is what enables "snitching" if we try to stay on topic regarding the OP?

Let's say i see a bum stealing a bottle of booze from the liquor store. I snitch him to the store security people. Bum gets caught and i have an assumed authority to ride on a moral high horse, and therefore, i feel better, because my ego is fed?

Well. I wouldn't give stiches to the lady videoing people at the tire place yesterday, but I would take her picture and publicly shame her.

Rape, murder, abuse, yep, I would snitch.

If it involves children I’m much more apt to blow a whistle than most situations.

I ran into a lot in the restaurant business and two specific times I told an officer who was there at the time to keep an eye/look into it. One was after a father smacked his daughter’s thigh quite hard because she got excited about her food coming out. She bounced up and said “Yay!”, and he smacked her thigh hard enough that it made a thud, not a slap sound, she had bruises all over her legs and I just felt like dirt seeing it happen. The father looked at me with the “Oh sh!t, you saw that, didn’t you?” look on his face. There was a cop sitting within the area and I just told him what took place and to keep an eye if he sees anything like it happening again. I doubt anything came of it. If it were just a tap, I wouldn’t have bothered, kids can be a pain in the ass and parents SHOULD discipline them, but that was way too far. Hell, I got the belt when I was a kid and deserved it a few times, if that’s any kind of place marker of crossing a line.

The other time was an older guy, in his 60’s, with his daughter and her son. He kept going out to his car during their stay and while he only ordered 2 beers, he was clearly getting more and more tanked as time passed, to the point he was fumbling over everything he picked up and heavily slurring. Him and his daughter were arguing over who was going to take the boy home and were still arguing about it in the parking lot when I left. I saw the grandfather put the kid in his car and then went back to argue with his daughter. There was a cop patrolling the parking lot so I flagged her down and told her to go check the situation out. The boy ended up in his mother’s car and she let the older guy leave on his own.

Both those times I thought before talking to the police, “Maybe I’m looking too far into it and should mind my own business, I don’t want to ruin someone’s life over something that could be nothing.”, but in the end both situations were eating at me way too much to leave them alone.

I called the cops one night when a car in front of us was swerving all over the place, going about 70mph in a 35mph zone. We were behind it for about 3 miles (streets are pretty straight and level here in South Florida, you can see quite far ahead of you) and after they clipped a mailbox I made the call. My wife’s twin uncles were killed by a drunk driver so that stuff hits a little closer to home. With the amount of options we have for ride services, there’s really no excuse.

I suppose only when I really believe someone is in serious danger. I’ve seen plenty of illegal things occurring and haven’t said a word about it because in the end, no one would would really be hurt by it but the people involved and that’s their choice. I once had an employee who was stealing steaks, in the end he had stolen about $2,000-3,000 worth of prime rib and rib eyes. I knew who it was but it took me a little while to figure out how he was doing it. I fired him and then caught hell from my area director for not calling the cops. I actually got written up for not calling the cops on him.

I snitched on someone who threw their subway sandwich bag and stuff out of their car. I was about 1/4 of a mile away on a gravel road. I picked up their garbage and set in my passenger seat. I followed them to the highway (they had sped up as soon as they saw me) and got their license plate info. I got ahead of them and stopped in the middle of the road to confront them and give them back what they had 'lost'. I got out of my car and stood in the middle of the highway. By this time I was 1/4 of a mile in front of them. They stopped about 100 feet from my vehicle, made a U turn and headed back the way they came.

Since I was done chasing them and realized they didn't want a confrontation, I called the police and gave them the information.

Living in rural areas, the highways are void of traffic most of the time. The cops probably didn't do a thing but I felt better. I can't stand it seeing all the garbage people throw out in rural areas but any area overall. I can't stand it when people treat the earth as a dumping ground. Littering and garbage dumping, I absolutely hate it.

If people would make my life a living hell i would without hesitating.

It is snitching or deal with them myself , wich would be the quickest way to prison.

To give you guys a example :

Few years ago i had this neighboor , who works in a bar he comes home at 0400 Am and turns open the music super loud.

Since my bedroom is next to his appartment this woke me up numerous times.

First i didnt say anything , then he ramped up the action every day and i could sing along with the songs so clear could i hear them.

If i ring his door in the middle of the night he turns the volume to low. but next week its the same story.

After ringing his door 20 times , i had 2 options :

Get physical , if words don't work maybe beat some sense into him ?

or contact the home owner Association , maybe they could communicate with him that his neighboor is having a hard time because of him.

I took the second option , because i didn't want to lose my freedom , my home and my work.

There are different types of snitching , no way i will behave like a suicidal pacifist when people make my life a hell.

If this makes me a snitch so be it , i did the right thing here by engaging in a non violent manner to resolve a conflict.
