Rapper: I Wouldn't Help Police Catch A Serial Killer


www.drudgereport.com

Rap star Cam'ron says there's no situation -- including a serial killer living next door -- that would cause him to help police in any way, because to do so would hurt his music sales and violate his "code of ethics." Cam'ron, whose real name is Cameron Giles, talks to Anderson Cooper for a report on how the hip-hop culture's message to shun the police has undermined efforts to solve murders across the country. Cooper's report will be broadcast on 60 MINUTES Sunday, April 22 (7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

I can guarantee you he would change his mind if someone from his own family were killed by a serial killer.

Though, this is the land of the free, and he has every right to say what he wants. It's just when it does happen, and he doesn't participate, that it then becomes a problem.

So this (holding back) guys album sales (where the albums are filled with violence and racism) are more important than the lives of innocent people ?

This guy and the rest of them need to rethink their "code of ethics".

Well .. this one certainly has questonable morals.
The rest? They'll have to speak for themselves.

And perhaps that's what he wanted with this announcement that he'd never side with law enforcement. Get his name out there ... make sure that the youth think he's a bad-boy so that they will buy his 'music'.

And some wonder why there is a 'social crisis' with black men.

I would presume many have heard about him.

The article did say he was a PLATINUM SELLING RAPPER

Now just how many of those platinum records he has I do not know.

What interested me more in the story was his greed and love of money over that of his fellow neighbors and mankind around him.

Cammron is a soul less idiot. I've heard some of his music and he isn't that good. No creativity what's so ever. He just follows what's hott

First let's just be clear on this, there is no actual serial killer. He was just giving an example.

Second though I do not agree with Cameroon, and I do think he is personally just being silly, there is good reason for the stop snitching message.

I did a lot of reading about this over the last seveal months and there are two sides to ever story.

You can read some of these articles if you like.

www.slate.com...

www.law.uc.edu...

www.sfgate.com.../c/a/2006/01/28/BAGHUGV3AE1.DTL

www.hiphopmusic.com...

www.usatoday.com...

It's apparently causing some real problems in many ethnic communities. Many of the young men between 15-35 have become part of these snitching programs for the cops. Instead of putting them back out into society to do good, the cops allow them to sell drugs and do other crimes because they are on the police pay roll. Well in some communities these are causing criminals to take over and to run and control things.

It's also causing social problems, because they know that at every single gathering there will be one or two snitches, and they will be looking to turn others in for the smallest things, so that they too can become snitches. These snitches programs are hugh now all over the place.

Apparently the so called war on drugs, was more about a war on minorities than anything else, according to some of these articles, which later go on to point out that the last 10 years have been spent gathering a snitch force, starting with the minority community.

The stop snitching message was a way to fight and combat this and to try to reclaim some of these criminal elements that are protected by these snitching programs. However now it has everyone not corportating with police. This two needs a balance somewhere.

Please don't use one man to quantify all rappers. It's like saying "Haven't asian people got any morals" in response to the VT thing.

I don't think it would be obstruction if he just kept his mouth shut. If they asked him, and he lied, that's one thing. Or hid the guy in his basement. But going out of ones way is not required unless ordered by a judge. I could be wrong though.

1. Have you ever heard a Cam'ron album? What is racist about them specifically?

2. Again, please don't quantify in this way. Who is "them"?

Excuse me since when are all rapper white? Also did I mention any race? No I did not you assumed I meant it as a dig towards one culture when I did not,



White Rappers homepage




I don't think it would be obstruction if he just kept his mouth shut.


Knowingly withholding information from the police about a crime, is obstruction of justice.


Pulls out handy dandy American heritage dictionary just for you


obstruction of justice
n.
The criminal offense, under common law and according to the statutes of many jurisdictions, of obstructing the administration and due process of law.

1. No, but I did just look at his lyrics. Read them and then tell me how they aren't racist. They are disgusting.

2. Rappers. That is who "them" is.

Like MC Paul Barman?

I don't think you know enough about rap to make such a comment enjoies. It actually shows a lot of ignorance, and it's almost insulting.

Please lets leave Race out of the issue it was not meant to be about race.
It was intended to point out low morals of rap artists in general .

Shots,

My comment may have used race as an example, but it was meant as a larger point. Let me clarify:

It would be like saying " Haven't students got any morals?" after the VT incident

Shots, for every rapper you point out with a negative message, I can point out two with a positive message.
