12oz Prophet Protects Snitches

Recommended Posts

why is it that everytime someone posts paperwork proving that someone is a snitch, the moderators take it down and close the thread as if the snitch is getting snitched out by their name being on 12oz?

 

if they hadnt informed on or testified against someone their name wouldnt be on the paperwork! who's the victim of being snitched on? them or the people they snitched out? stupid motherfuckers.

 

i can think of 2 examples: **** from **** and *** from *** are both certified snitches. both their paperwork has been posted, and each time moderators took it down and closed the thread.

 

people protecting snitches and letting them ride is one of the major reasons i stopped writing and dont want anything to do with graffiti writers. you're all a bunch of snitches, your heros are snitches and you let snitches kick it as if its all good.

 

no thanks. that aint how i was raised. whats the point fo having beef with fools if they just gonna snitch you out when you catch them slippin? you bitch ass punks can pat each other on the back all day. real fools know what time it is.

well, write with who you trust, and stop whining? take care of your beef in real life, 12oz just doesn't want some slimy-ass lawyer serving em` papers because they're 'sharing personal information'.

Set up your own site/forum and put up and the snitch info if you are really that determined to let it be known.

Snitching on snitches is still snitching. The policy here has consistently been "no government names" from day one.

 

Also, if I wanted to drag someone's reputation through the mud, it would be no big thing to whip up some official-looking document "proving" so-and-so is a rat then upload it to a few key websites under an assumed name.

I really hate seeing things like this. We all know (or at least should know) as writers that there are people on this earth who HATE with a fiery, hellish passion what we do. They hate it with every bone in their body, and they will do anything they can to get us busted.

 

This is why it's part of the "Beginner's Bible for Graffiti Writers" that you do not tell people that you write. That's a stupid move on your part (no, I'm not saying you told people). You also don't make your work visible, aka putting it on homework, tests, the outside covers of your blackbook, your room, etc. You need to PROTECT your identity, not make it easier for eht fuzz and the snitchers.

 

Learn who you're writing with; choose these people carefully. Anybody can be a snithc, but the good ones will blend in with the rest of us like white blends in with rice. You will never know who they are until they show up in the court room to testify against your sorry ass.

 

Now, to actually answer your question: 12oz cannot allow threads exposing known snitches to go unchecked because of the issue that it is illegal. Yes, this is a Graffiti forum and anything Graffiti related should be allowed, but certain things have to be prohibited. Like anything in life, there has to be rules. Publically psoting the names and locations of people who snitch on Graffiti writers is: Libel, the written slandering of an individual, harrsasment, and endangering the welfare of another, as this person could come to great harm by an angry writer. If anything like this were to be reported, 12oz would have lawyers crawling up their asses and the forums would be shut down? Is that what you want?

 

Handle the snitches by yourselves. Post them somewhere else. Start your own "Known Graffiti Nitches" website or something like that. Write the list of names in paint on a wall where everybody will see it, photograph it, and send it to the world. Just don't do it here.

 

Oh, and by the way...the others are right...you just snitched on a snitch. Snitching can be done in many different ways, and telling others that somebody is a snitch is an act of snitching all in itself. I'm not saying that you snitched in a bad way or anything, because a lot of us like to know who these snitches are...but you did snitch.

 

I hope this helped you understand.

If this thread was started by the real COLT45, then I'm pretty sure he knows all this.

 

This is why I don't talk about graffiti on 12 oz unless it's in vague, general terms. I used to chop it up about my local scene, but I didn't realize I was sharing what could be considered an unhealthy amount of information about myself and a couple other people. These days, I don't even hang out with most of the writers I know...I keep in touch with a few close friends and say hi to people when I see them but I don't know what's going on in the scene, nor do I care. If something important happens that's relevant to me then I'll hear about it but beyond that I'm not interested.

 

This brings up the whole "is the internet good for graffiti?" debate again. I think the internet is a great archive for photos, but it should end there. Using it as a medium for shit-talking and gossip creates WAY too many problems for too many people.

 

COLT(?)- I agree with some of what you said but if you aren't aware of the risks involved when you hit a certain level in your career, then I don't really know what to tell you. It's shitty when people drop dimes but unless their actions directly affect you all you can do is keep your distance from them...if they're up to no good, people will eventually figure it out.

I'm the dude **** .COM *** snitched on. (yes, those crews don't care he's a snitch, ha!) Colt's my homie. I posted the paperwork on the DC thread right after **** posted a diatribe about how's he's not a snitch. It was good to have his statements about "not snitching" on this forum; a sort of record. This was good because, to any sane and reasonable person, the paperwork exposed his lies for what they were..and right there on the spot. I am pleased with the results. I got what I wanted, more or less.

 

Now, I think the one thing that we may all agree on, is that this forum should be called 12oz. PROFIT. Being down with the uglier, less marketable parts of this criminal lifestyle does not serve this site's bottom-line. As graff grows, capitalism will find more & more ways to include it into it's program. And the gritty work of exposing snitches does not help those of higher socioeconomic status (white kids in middle Amercia) buy into the hype. So from that perspective, it is easy to understand why this site, by default, protects snitches.

 

Oh, and documents used to prove a snitch are public record. I asked my lawyer and he told me I could legally put out a full page ad in the Washington Post with them papers. But he recommend I wait until after sentencing, ha! Slander assumes an element of dishonesty...dude helped the cops...it's the truth. No slander there. The only shit that was seriously on the hush-hush was when that rat was meant to sit as a witness on a grand jury...and while we are exposing snitches. DC's ****, ****'s homie, snitched right along with him...and I can prove that too...haha.

 

Anyways, thanks to the homie Colt. 45. Always keeps it real...a member of a dying breed.

I'm not trying to be the devil's advocate, but what motivated him to roll over on you? I've had to deal with the cops trying to get information out of me for various shit (it never fails) and I always tell them to just book me and get it over with. I don't know shit and I know even less than that when I'm in custody.

 

Also, the only two things you have as a writer to stand on is your work and your word...and if your word is no good then you can kiss your work goodbye.

 

*edit- 12 oz doesn't want to deal with the hassle. It doesn't have to do with money, they've always had a no names/details policy and it's strictly enforced. Personally I don't think posting any kind of court papers is a good look, it's one or two steps removed from dropping dimes in my book regardless of the circumstances or intentions. But you do you.

We are talking about REAL snitching here. Not just a loose term that means you told someone something privileged. SNICTHING IS WHEN WHAT SOMEONE SAYS GIVES THE POLICE WHAT THEY NEED TO FORM A CASE AGAINST SOMEONE ELSE, or when WHAT SOMEONE SAYS SUPPORTS A CASE AGAINST SOMEONE ELSE. Get real, showing a snitches' paperwork DOES NOT result in a charge against that person.

 

Now discuss based on that specific definition that is not so obvious to everyone.

the internet is nothing more than a means of communicating with more people than you can by word of mouth alone. this website is the most highly trafficked graffiti website. that makes this website the appropriate place to air pertinent information, like who's a motherfucking snitch. of all the bullshit on the internet, if there's one thing people need to be informed of, its who's a motherfucking snitch.

 

when someone's government name is on the paperwork proving that they gave a statement, testified, or wrote a victim's impact statement, they are a certified snitch. the argument that putting the paperwork with their government name on the site makes them the victim, is disingenuous, to put it lightly. furthermore, it blatantly, shamelessly, and effectively protects snitches by censoring information that would otherwise inform others that they are in fact a snitch. this policy protects snitches. and if thats how you ride, thats on you.

 

i wasnt raised to accept snitching or snitches under any circumstances. of course many of you werent raised like me. you dont have the moral values i have. you can know someone is a snitch and still let that person ride and even speak on their behalf as someone did on this very thread. any who do that are no better than the snitch, and the fact that there are so many like that in the graffiti community, is fucking repulsive to me. history will fucking show who rode with snitches and who didn't. when you're on your deathbed, your children will know you're a fucking snitch piece of shit rat motherfucker. you obviously have no shame. and theres not a thing in the world i can do about that.

 

besides. me, my homeboys, and my crews... we are not violent people. i would never want physical harm to come to anyone. i'm stupid, but not stupid enough to get myself in trouble for threatening or assaulting a government witness.

Posting peoples real info on the internet makes someone a snitch, So regardless of who snitched on who it doesn't need to be on here. If you are from a city and do have paperwork proving someone snitched on you, show it to your boys, don't post it on the fucking internet and snitch the person out in response. If you are unable to handle your beef I advise you just ignore it and forget about it; otherwise get you a couple of baseball bats and go beat the shit out of the person who snitched you out. Of course you might get charged with intimidation on a witness, or assaulting a witness, but that's on you.

As to threads getting deleted when shit like this happens. The mods delete the threads because some of you don't know how to use the internet or read the rules of 12oz and want to go ahead and keep snitching people out. This usually leads to people dropping other peoples names and threads getting ruined, so if you want your thread back my advice is to go break the fingers of who ever is posting peoples info, take pictures and send them to the mods informing them that for the next few months the thread is safe from people who are going to snitch people out and drop peoples information and ask them nicely if they would please undelete it or allow a new one to happen since you dealt with the problem in such a way as to prevent said people from snitching in the future,

MUD- You got a raw deal. Therefore now it's time to lay the smack down on whoever ratted you out then move on. Or don't, but if you do I bet you'll feel a lot better. It's like ESPO said...you wanted attention, and now you got it you big crybaby. The cops want to talk to you, in my mind you succeeded at doing what a graffiti writer does. Pat yourself on the back, fill a sock up with some Play-doh, and go beat that clown's ass. Just don't sulk about it on the internet, that changes nothing.

 

Anyway, fronting people off on the internet and rationalizing it by saying "they did it first" is IMO just another way of saying "look at me, look at what so and so did to me, feel bad for me, me me me." So now we all know the guy's a rat, but why does someone in the Bay Area (me) need to know who's a rat in DC? Why would I care? You don't need the internet to make sure the right people in DC know, do you?

 

COLT- Besides the "12 oz protects snitches" theory- they do what they have to do, and if you disagree with that then start your own "anything goes" graff forum and tell me how it works out- I was sort of with you till this point...

 

besides. me, my homeboys, and my crews... we are not violent people. i would never want physical harm to come to anyone.

 

Not to get off of the subject, but I have a simple question- were all those fights in the videos released by one of your crews staged? If you're non-violent that's great...but do yourself a favor- speak for yourself, not for your crew. I've seen people from your crew pick fights and sucker punch people on several different occasions in person. In fact, I've probably seen more fights they were involved in than any other crew I know. Besides what's been documented on video and marketed and sold as "a true depiction of the graffiti lifestyle" or whatever. Sorry, I gotta call bullshit on that one.

 

Not to mention that putting your entire fucking crew on a video- visible faces and features and all- could be considered snitching. But is it okay if you do it to yourself? There's a Zen riddle for the ages.

 

Back on subject- you do know that there's a snitch in that same crew, right? It's been well documented here, maybe you saw a post or two about it.
