Snitch of the Week: 7/2 - 7/8

(I'm sure several Sopranos actors are on this list)

A lot of the today's notion of snitching has its origins in the mob world, since they were the first to popularize the so-called honor code and then publicly Start Snitching on each other to save their own asses.

A few weeks ago the Times dropped a little article about how the entire mafia is basically a wrap due to snitches.

Italians Start Snitching (NY Times)

To all the Italian-Americans out there who are dropping dimes on each other and keeping stereotypes alive, you are the Snitch of the Week.


  1. I was speaking with a group of youngsters about snitching and they tried to convince me how they shut it down. I reminded them how Goodfellas is a true story and that dude is getting money from snitching and has even been on the History channel. I don't think selling crack on the corner gives you enough strength to silence all snitches...yours just don't have enought material to sell a script.

  2. People will snitch when it benefits them.

    The government doesnt care about Lil Ray Ray selling weed on the corner, not to mention he doesn't know enough to be worth arresting.
