Are we becoming the United Snitches of America?

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Laura Ingraham just asked an important question about the coronavirus lockdown and its effect on us as people.

We are all wondering about that as we creep about furtively looking over our shoulders, wondering if we will be stopped by law enforcement as we walk outside or drive down the street, as we are outside our homes in our neighborhoods. Will our neighbors call and “snitch” on us for not staying in our homes, not practicing “social distancing?”

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti encouraged “snitches” in a recent conference:

We want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we are all safe. Your decision to stay home may mean that there’s one less person who needs a ventilator we do not have. If any non-essential businesses continue to operate in violation of the stay at home order, we’re going to act to enforce the safer at home order and ensure their compliance. You know the old expression about snitches. Well, in this case, snitches get rewards.

Don’t snitches always get rewards? But they won’t be viewed with any more favor by normal Americans just because the mayor of Los Angeles commends them.

Encouraging “snitching” gives a certain type of person, a busy body, license to mess up other people’s lives.

A 54-year-old Connecticut woman was mortified” to see people on a golf course eating at tables as she was driving by. (Where was she going?) She justified posting a video of the gathering on Facebook. “I was angry and upset, and I threw some f-bombs. You’re not going to consider that what you’re doing could kill somebody?” After viewing the video, the mayor shut that golf course down.

Police in Tulsa, Oklahoma say that calls have increased of residents reporting on businesses and neighbors. In fact, there are so many calls, the department can’t respond to all of them.

Everyone has a duty to help slow the spread of the virus – but too often, snitches are doing nothing to help, and only overloading the 911 system.

According to all reports, these “snitches” are enthusiastically policing their fellow citizens. Do we really want to become the United Snitches of America?
