    No snitching. Anyone caught snitching will of course have to be terminated. Gotta keep the killing fields of Baltimore, D.C. and Prince Georges unsafe enough for gangsters to keep doing what they do.

    Maybe in addition to allowing them their no snitch policy we should also keep feeding them and paying their rent, and now… we should also give them free cell phones to commit their crimes with. Lol.
