The Difference Between "Snitches" and Witnesses

America has lost this war! The Fourth Amendment has been walked all over in the name of the "War on Drugs."

The Difference Between "Snitches" and Witnesses

The difference between "snitches" and witnesses. Bottom line, snitches receive some compensation: a reduced sentence, cash, privileges in prison, etc.

No one is for witness intimidation by criminals. Some of us just also oppose witness intimidation by police. If a defendant pays a witness for alibi testimony, it's tampering. If the prosecution pays a witness to bust that alibi (even if the "payment" is a reduced sentence, though sometimes cash), that's considered good police work. How is that just?
"Cops that lie, need to die!" A police officer that lies to get an arrest or send someone to prison should be shot.
