ANDERSON COOPER 360
Aired April 24, 2007 - 22:00 ET
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN ANCHOR: Good evening, everyone.
A deadly shooting, a millionaire rapper involved -- police say at least 25 people saw it. But no witnesses talked. In major cities all across the country, people are dying, and no one is talking.
Why? Two words: stop snitching, a criminal code of silence now being preached to kids in hip-hop lyrics, rappers like Cam'ron who say you should never talk to cops about crimes.
COOPER: If there's a serial killer living next door to you, though, and you know that person is, you know, killing people, would you be a snitch if you called police and told them?
CAMERON GILES, RAPPER: If I knew the serial killer was living next door to me?
GILES: No, I wouldn't call and tell anybody on him, but I would probably move. But I'm not going to call and be like, you know, the serial killer is in 4-E.
(Comment: right Cam. You show "da man". After all, your family weren't the victims).
