Are people really not aware that these residents/witnesses in this community can be targeted by the gang members for "snitching" aka telling the cops what they saw? Even worse the gang may try to make an example out of a "snitch" by killing that person slowly and going after their family? The police are not always there to protect you, especially when you live in an underprivileged area. If you believe otherwise you are either ignorant or delusional.
I hate the "no snitching" culture as much as the next guy who cringes as he watches our society crumble, but I really don't understand how posters on here can lack the empathy to understand that these residents put their lives and the safety of their families on the line when they speak to the police about incidents like this.
