Being A Witness Vs Being A Snitch Or Informant - Articles Surfing
I think it is time that people stopped snitching and started witnessing. Now you might be wondering what the difference is between the two. The difference is the motivation and the consequences the two bring to society. One helps the other hinders communities. One is driven by selfish goals the other is altruistic in nature.
Witnessing teaches society to do what it has always been expected to do. Be a good neighbour, watch out for those around you. Protect them and care about them like you would for yourself. It's all about freedom to stand up against the oppression of criminal elements in society. Being a witness does not bound and entrap, it's about being free and helping out those around you. Witnessing shows that you care about your friends, family and the society at large. It's noble because the goal is to protect, assist and keep our community safe.
Snitching advocates the fact that you do not have to respect the laws of society, you just have to be willing to snitch when the time comes. Snitching does not foster moral or social responsibility for criminal actions. It fosters a lack of community trust, and shows that law officials will willingly turn a blind eye to the crimes of snitches, and let them walk free in society, or have reduced jail sentences. It's used to help criminals set up and inform on other criminals, and sometimes on the innocent.
Witnessing does not stop the police from doing their jobs, in fact it fosters community corporation because the community sees criminals being put away. There are no dirty under handed deals enslaving members of their communities to become informants and so it fosters a sense of trust with the very people who citizens are suppose to be able to trust.
Snitching destroys families and communities. It does this by making the young men and woman in those societies untrustworthy. It encourages backstabbing and betrayal of friends, family, strangers. It's puts societies that are already strained into even more strained circumstances. Snitching creates mental slaves, who willingly or unwillingly sell their souls to the system for reduced sentences, or freedom from iron prisons.
Witnessing allows the police to do the work that they were hired to do. It puts the proper amount of power back in the hands our legal justice system.
Snitching allows police and prosecutors to get into a vicious and relentless cycle of dependency. It teaches police an addictive reliance on criminal informants for the conviction of other criminals. It teaches them to be lazy and to trust the untrustworthy. Most times to the detriment of the very societies they are sworn to serve and to protect.
Witnesses help and keep society safe and like wise they should be protected by the community they risk their lives to keep safe, and by the law enforcement persons assigned to those communities. These are the people that should be getting immunity and full protection from law enforcement. This form of community corporation is helpful and it fosters good will in society. We learn to trust that wrongs will be made right and those that commit crimes will pay for them. It's a cohesive force that holds society together.
Snitching is being used to destroy the moral fibers of society. It's being used to put criminals on the street with full immunity from crimes they might commit or have committed, because they are snitching on others. It's a devious dragnet that is creating and endless army of slave informants for the law enforcement community. It's causing devastation in some communities, and it's doing more harm than good.
When a society sees that criminals can be put back on the street and protected for their past crimes and future crimes, it erodes the morals of that society. People learn to not trust or respect law enforcement and they also learn to not corporate with law enforcement, cause how can you trust someone who employs the services of paid criminals?
Witnessing is all about liberation and being free, snitching is mental slavery that leaves individuals owned and trapped in a perpetual cycle that hurts society at large. Cases are being solved, but at what cost to the society, morally and ethically?
