The site dnainfo dot com released a story on Chicago murder stats. Only 26% of cases get solved (yoy 2015). Officials state that the 'no snitching' policy discourages witnesses to come forward to help solve the crime. If a killer has a 1 in 4 chance of getting away with murder, then there is not much deterring that murder. The Washington Post describes the point of view of witnesses as such: "It’s not that the people who may know something don’t think that the lives of these victims are important. It’s just that they place more value on their own lives, which they consider too important to get labeled “snitch.” Too important to risk becoming a victim of retaliation. Too important to even let on that they know something. That’s what intimidation and fear of revenge can do to a community, especially one that has seen witness killings in the past." Do you think urban violence is a big issue? What deserves more resources than this issue? Lastly, do you support the no snitching culture, if not, how could it be reversed?
