Yahoo is now hosting 60 minutes vids, but every 2-3 minutes you watch an ad for either pampers or Oral B.
Anyhow the beginning segment is called “Stop Snitching” and it’s very interesting. In essence, the rule of law has been perverted to a degree far past that of La Cosa Nostra and their vow of omerta.
I am highly suspicious of police but that’s only because I know them from the inside having worked with many of them over the years. The police have fostered this to some degree since you’ve probably seen some of my other diatribes about policing gone amok. There needs to be genuine community outreach but I think the relationship is so damaged at this point that it is nearly impossible and improbable that the rule of law will ever be the same.
And if police try to use draconian tactics they’ll only make it that much worse. I’m not certain what the answer is, but I do know that an open admission on the part of police would be a good start.
