The infamous Cam’ron interview was originally broadcast
from CBS West Side studios (at 555 W. 57th St) on April 22, 2007 at 7 p.m.
60 Minutes is a television newsmagazine, which has run since 1968.
This night one of the three long-form news stories was untitled “Stop Snitchin’“…
Guess who tells-a-lie-vision this time…
“In most communities, a person who sees a murder and helps the police put the killer behind bars is called a witness. But in many inner-city neighborhoods in this country that person is called a “snitch.”
“Stop snitchin‘” is a catchy hip-hop slogan that embodies and encourages this attitude.
You can find it on everything from rap music videos to clothing. “Stop snitchin‘” once meant “don’t tell on others if you’re caught committing a crime.”
But as CNN‘s Anderson Cooper reports for 60 Minutes, it has come to mean something much more dangerous: “don’t cooperate with the police – no matter who you are.”
“As a result, police say, witnesses are not coming forward. Murders are going unsolved.”
