Fuck The Police
Police Corruption is defined as the abuse of police authority for personal or organizational gain. This comes in many shapes and sizes, from the major drug trafficking and money laundering to looking the other way on minor everyday violations of the law. Ever since the concept of rules and regulation came about there have been certain people who were chosen to enforce those regulations. Some of those law enforcement personnel have been persuaded to look the other way on certain violations committed by their friends or family. Payments for these inconsistencies could come in the way of personal favors, bribes, or gratuities. Winnipeg Police have been known to intimidate witnesses against them-- in a gang like fashion -- along with fabricating evidence in attempts to avoid legal and public prosecution.
Even though destain for snitches can be found within EVERY ethnic community (e.i. Italian underworld code of Omertà, Triad and Biker syndicates etc.), the media and police brass constantly attempts to label this as a problem strictly confined to minority communities. In the midst of all the sensationalism and misconception, the true meaning of the word "Snitch" has been misconstrue by popular culture and the media. Let it be known that a person reporting criminal activity in their neighborhood is NOT a snitch. That would be a CONCERNED CITIZEN. Someone that gives an ACCURATE account of a crime is called a WITNESS.
Snitches are the government-made parasites that drop a dime on people for a reduction in prison time, a get-out-of-jail credit, monetary payment, or a hit of crack.When necessary, these foot soldiers in the so-called “War on Drugs” embellish the truth. Quite often, they fabricate stories. Snitches are responsible for nearly 46% of wrongful convictions from false testimony, according to a study by Northwestern University Law School's Center on Wrongful Convictions. They are also the reason that innocence commissions across the country have concluded that snitch testimony is false and unreliable. Snitches are CRIMINALS hustling the system.
The media and police P.R. are creating the illusion that the crime epidemic is fueled by the Native and immigrant community’s reluctance to cooperate with police investigations. To be quite sure, honest people are not conspiring with criminals in some imaginary code of silence. The average citizen is just as concerned as those in affluent/middle-class areas about drugs and crime in the city. But (with good reason)people in poor areas are a little closed-mouthed when it comes to talking to the police, which can probably be attributed more to the fear of dishonest police than the fear of retaliation from any gang.
Depicting the Native and other minority community as a bunch of apathetic hedonists with questionable values, spooked by the thought of assisting the police in any way for fear that they would be labeled a snitch and assassinated surves the police and the media's agenda by painting the victims as the perpetrators.
In poor communities the police are not trusted, and for good reasons. Police lie, plant evidence, and strong-arm residents more frequently than anyone will admit.

Winnipeg Transit is the public transit agency in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is a bus-only operator. The Winnipeg Street Railway operated a horse car operation from 1882 to 1894. It was rendered obsolete and acquired by the Winnipeg Electric Street Railway (1892, later Winnipeg Electric Railway and Winnipeg Electric Co.), which ran electric streetcars until 1955, regular buses from 1918, and electric trolley buses from 1938 to 1970. After the end of street cars, the system was known as the Winnipeg Transit Commission and the Greater Winnipeg Transit Commission. The company was owned by the Metropolitan Corporation of Greater Winnipeg from 1960 until 1972 when the corporation was replaced by the amalgamated City of Winnipeg.
