  • Snitching

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2004/w ... ot.button/

    This writer deplores the USADA tactic of employing Kelli White to assist the organization by snitching on other athletes that cheated.

    My position is that the cops have been so badly outmaneuvered and behind the 8-ball for so many years, that they need to take advantage of every tool in their new arsenal to strike as many fatal blows as possible while they have the ammo and the chance.

    I feel like Bill Murray chasing the groundhogs in Caddyshack. Memo to Phil Taylor, Rick Telander and everyone else
    who has picked up this talking point: NO ONE HAS ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT IF THEY DIDN'T CHEAT.

      Re: Snitching

      snitching??!! If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

      We need some housecleaning, and some people are trying to hide the dirt?

      At the Naval Academy there's this little thing called the Honor Code. If you don't 'snitch' about a wrongdoing, you are equally liable for the offense. I always liked that.

          There's no such thing as a witch (the supernatural kind, that is). There are, however, bad people who need to face justice. Finding them out is a good thing.

            The obvious contradiction with the snitch system is that the word of the convicted or who face threat of conviction is considered credible ... only when prosecutors want to take someone down, yet, on the other hand, such a person's word isn't worth anything on any other issue. The snitch system has resulted in the greatest amount of innocent people landing in jail. It is a very ugly situation.

              I assume you speak as a legal expert with pertinent evidence at your command.

              A Snitch's word is NEVER taken at face value. It merely opens new avenues of investigation.

                Nonsense. It is used in conjunction with all of the other evidence and credibility is always an issue.

                  I wish I could be quite so sure about it. I lived under the system where you never knew whether a guy you considered to be your friend wasn't a secret police snitch. Not pretty.

                    That's different. I'm talking about the snitch who uses testimony to avoid a conviction and /or get his or her sentence reduced. My point is that his or her testimony is always challenged on the basis of credilbilty and that credibilty is weighed by the judge or jury in conjunction with all the other evidence.

                        I'm thinking Czechoslovakia for some reason but he could be from pretty well anywhere from behind the iron curtain.

                              How sad! Hungary used to be a visitor's paradise. While living in Slovakia, we went there a lot and it was safe and fun. The best food and wine.


                              But 2 points to marknhj for remembering he visited Hungary. And gh, when he was there, Czechoslovakia would have been the right answer.
