In a recent No Jumper conversation, Adam22 and Steve-O discussed the concept of “snitching” and its relation to accountability.
They shed light on the idea that society often vilifies snitching while other criminal activities are accepted or even glorified. The conversation also reflects on the fact that human nature dictates that when facing serious consequences, individuals are more likely to cooperate with law enforcement.
From there, Adam and Steve-O delved into the notion that being law-abiding is the only real way to avoid snitching. They pointed out that it is counterintuitive to consider snitching as a terrible act while engaging in illegal activities such as robbery or violence. They question why snitching is seen as the ultimate sin when it can potentially prevent others from committing harmful acts.
