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.
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.
