And like I have been asking, how will anyone know?

That's the problem with this day and age, people are always just thinking of themselves. Maybe if more people reported idiots then less idiots would be on the street.

With caller ID, the police department can discover who I am and some dispatchers have big mouths. That's how someone might know! I had mentioned before that in one case I had specifically requested to remain anonymous and the investigator sold me out. I don't trust anyone to keep their word to not release my identity. So, yeah, between your STUFF and my life, guess which means more to me.

This guy, in this situation was selling drugs and she turned the guy in and the cops arrested the loser. However, her friends, and neighbors are not pissed off at the woman because they feel she is a “snitch”.

I know this is not just a San Antonio thing, but it is a problem in San Antonio and would like to see people discuss it, in an attempt to maybe change someone’s mind who is scared to turn in illegal activity to do so.
I worked twenty years in the rougher areas of Birmingham in the UK as a private hire driver and have picked up wannabee gangsters, real ones, heroin addicts, crack heads, done most of it myself as well.

Society over here has gone badly wrong because the marxists and communists have created many quangos have made the criminal the victim and the law abiding citizen should really understand that it is partly his fault that these criminals exist in the first place.

For example the Marxist head of the multi million pound tax payer funded race relation industry spent years telling people who were seeing there culture been torn apart that wave after wave of people from third world countries would intergrate and we were force fed that word like bad tasting medicine for many years.

They came up with another word diversity which had to be celebrated and loved just like the first woman you ever fell in love with and for many years the sheeple never noticed all the cocaine been brought in by jaimacan criminals or the heroin been brought in by the muslims to further the cause of jihad apparantly we had a nice choice of eateries and needed to be happy.

The next word was cohesion because apparantly between the intergration and the diversity the witchfinder marxist general had noticed something was badly wrong in communist heaven and the natives were becoming restless, to try and solve this problem they removed lots of nice Godly words from childrens dictionaries and replaced them with new buzzwords.

getting back to the point, dealers are like rats you may see one that scares you but there is a whole colony just waiting and removing the one will only attract more scouts until you eradicate the nest.

I myself for all my illegal activities, i only harmed myself and made a few people richer than they were before they met me, I have a criminal record for having to accept a piece of paper after been incarcerated for eighteen hours and my Mother who was a devout Christian recently fell asleep at 93 and left me some money, the solicitor refused to give me the proceeds when probate was finished and took his over inflated amount out of it and then told me my deceased Mother was under investigation by a goverment department the investigation went on for six months they took $2000 i had no paperwork saying what this was for or what my mother done wrong to incur such a penalty.

I swear by almighty God that is true and would suggest you watch this film because this method is how they destroyed the uk and the gentleman presenting this is risking his life and it may help you detect if this is happening in your corner of the world.

I would report them,

BTW, there's 2 sides to this...
the same people that complain about the "ghetto don't snitch culture"
have their own "white collar don't snitch culture" (i.e. coworker drinking/smoking in the office, inappropriate business expenses, inappropriate use of computers at work, etc)

As I said before... there's also another side to the "Don't snitch culture" (bankers, stock market, politicians, etc)

In our culture we are told that everything they do is right,
if for some reason they do something illegal... it was a mistake or they didn't know it was illegal.

Hmmm...I'll tell my dad you said that. From the time we were very young, my siblings and I were told NOT to be snitches and to mind our own business, otherwise, we could end up getting ourselves into hot water. You don't know how badly I wished I had listened to him during the above-mentioned incident. I had to look over my shoulder for weeks!

So what you are saying is... someone kills someone in front of you.. and because of your upbringing.. you wont call it in?

Hmmmm.. not sure I am with you on this one.. I believe your parental unit may have done you some injustice

Goodness gracious! Is it too much to ask that you read my posts clearly? I said if someone is in physical danger I HAVE and WILL call the police. I will NOT, if it involves property damage. There are certain things that I will take risks for, but someone else's property isn't one of them.

And, never you mind whether my FATHER was right or wrong, it's what I was taught.

Would you expect that same treatment from someone who saw your property damaged?

Maybe it is a matter of personal opinion. Although, personally, I feel it's your (and my) responsibility as a citizen of a society to report property crime.
