Depends . . . if they snitch to save themselves, then they cannot be trusted.

If they snitch because they believe that what is going on is wrong, then Yes, Absolutely.

The drug dealer/buyer things where the Police get one to turn and burn, that is where I would not trust them.

When you have an individual coming to the police with information, even about friends/family, because they feel what is going on is wrong then I will extend trust to that person.

I did not make a choice on the poll, because it makes no distinction.

Snitch is different from a witness.
Link Posted: 10/4/2005 11:00:12 AM EDT
I wouldn't snitch out minor drug offences like the other thread mentioned, but if I saw a real crime (rape, murder, assault, burglary, etc..) I would have no problem being a witness.
Link Posted: 10/4/2005 11:02:10 AM EDT
Here's a different situation:
Say there's a cop who uses his status as an LEO to cater to drug dealers, prostitutes etc, and makes good money 'on the side'. Let's say that he's accessory to murder because he knows some of his drug dealer buddies are 'offing' the competition.
Now lets say this guys partner knows all this stuff.

Would you ever trust the partner for NOT snitching on the bad cop?
Link Posted: 10/4/2005 11:04:00 AM EDT
not just no but HELL NO!

that is why i will never sit on a jury.

Link Posted: 10/4/2005 11:10:12 AM EDT
The whole principle of being a snitch is that no one can trust you. That;s why rats don't advertise that they are rats! The people you ratted out will never trust you again neither will their community and the people you "ratted out to" (the police) will not trust you either. even when a cop informs on a bad cop, all the other police will treat him badly. Not even the cops like a rat. IMHO they are the same level as child molesters.

With the law being set up to be able to go after anyone that knows about things, and doesn't report them, then I'd say you can't really trust someone who lets crime happen.
Link Posted: 10/4/2005 11:19:14 AM EDT
I have people under me who are admitted pot/hash/coke users.  I am not going to turn them in, they know I don't condone it, but they do their job, and show up to work sober.  

I would not hide them from the police, and they are not welcome to ride with me unless they look me in the eye and say they are clean.

Trusted for what? Too vague a question to answer.

I have no faith, let alone trust, in a snitch...There is something about honor and keeping your mouth shut unless its an extreme circumstance. The thread that this is based on is a bunch of low level bullshit that will just get a few women in worse shape then they already are.

Never trust a snatch.  You don't know what's been up there.

If their story "fits," and is corroborated, sure.
Link Posted: 10/4/2005 11:37:04 AM EDT
To me, a witness is someone who might happen to see something, come upon some information, etc.

A snitch, however, is someone who has an intimate relationship with the situation. Valid, first hand, inside information, if you will.

I would never trust a snitch. For someone to really be a snitch, you would have to have taken them into your confidence already. Or they would be betraying someone else's confidence to come to you.

Either way, they are not to be trusted. To them the idea of greater rewards and/or CYA buys their information, no matter who you are. They are beholden only to the idea of personal gain.

No, never.  Always verify anything a turncoat says.  It can bite you bigtime depending on the business you are in.  The only way I'd trust one is if I were holding his children hostage, because for some reason most snitches I know/knew still were loyal to their families.

BWAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I wouldn't even trust them then  jkstexas2001, isn't worth it.

someone who will come into your house to snitch, will come in your house and plant shit for their handlers. I personally have zero doubts in this. just my "safe" opinion YMMV on them.

I find no reason to distrust more than any other stranger a person who has turned in a criminal. Since we can't legally kill them most of the time, just what the hell else are you supposed to do with a criminal but turn them in to the authorities? I don't like rap, I'm not a wannabe gangster, and I don't follow the line "snitches get stiches" etc. If they're getting scum off the streets, good on 'em. If they're doing it just to get their ass outta hot water, well I won't be inviting that sort over for cigars and drinks.

Hard to make a good call on it.  We gain valuable high level military inteligence though "snitches" however as in the drug thread, he is just a tattle-tail who needs to grow up and mind his own afairs.

Until someone calls witch on you. I've no use for any snitch.
I don't see the thread right now. yesterday I saw it. what about the guys who got stopped for their full auto weapons that weren't? the range master snitched on law abiding folk IIRC.
Link Posted: 10/4/2005 2:16:31 PM EDT
My initial comment still stands, your question is too vague. I didn't see the story you just mentioned about the range officer, but that is not what I think of when I think of a snitch. I'm not going to make blanket statements about all snitches based of a story like that one at any rate, because a lot of them are a valuable asset to law enforcement. I worked with a LEO that was involved with running a few snitches and they put a dent in the hardcore drug element in that AO as a result. Better place now IMO.

Never trust any snitch, period, they will turn on their own. You know, we got people where I work always turning people into management, thinking this will show management how dedicated they are, and what wonderfull supervisors they will make. You know, none of them ever make it to supervision, you wanna know why, because even as bad as some of our management has been they know not to set up a snitch, because they know in time they will be snitching on them, and they dont want that, kinda funny huh.
