Do snitches really get stitches ?

About a year ago, i called police on an old friend because i found out he was dealing drugs. he eventually got 2 years in prison. i heard he is getting out after 15 months.

As far as i know nobody knows it was me. he was kind of an idiot and flaunted his drugs and money around.

    How come when someone posts something like this ,the gangster mentality comes out in people that don’t have a clue ,I’m glad you called you saved people’s lives if he doesn’t get that then just find another place to live so he doesn’t come after you

    You should post your full name and current address here so all of us can nominate you for Edmonton’s outstanding citizen award

  3. To be fair, he wouldn’t have gotten prison time if the court didn’t find him guilty- criminal offences are a matter of the crown providing enough evidence to convict. Your call wouldn’t be the only thing that would put him away. Drugs are a huge issue in most places and they cause a lot of issues.

    Would he see it as betrayal- probably- unless he changed in prison and sees it as a fresh start on life to change- I’d lay low.

  4. To play devil’s advocate/try to put your mind at ease: it wasn’t your phone call that put him away, it was the mounds of evidence they probably found as a result of your phone call putting him on their radar. So in that sense… you could argue “don’t shoot the messenger”, maybe?

    Buuuuut this is the real world… and snitches get stitches so I’d lay low in 15 months lol.

    All these people beating up the poster must not have lost anyone to an overdose. Drug dealing is a violent crime of you look at the long term consequences. Having him or her put behind bars probably saved lives. That’s more important than being a “good friend” ffs

    When make a report against someone- your name, number and address are there for them…

  10. I thought snitches ended up in ditches….

  11. If you have to ask you already know

  12. It will be in the disclosure who’s the rat

  13. Cindy Gillis Cindy Gillis says:

    Ouch! What a shitty “friend” you are …..

  14. With a “friend” like you, who needs enemies.

    Love the people in here defending drug dealers.
    Stay classy, Edmonton.

  16. Calling the police just gave them a lead to something he was probably suspected for anyways.
    And unless you testified as to the goings on in this dudes life, I highly doubt your name came up.
    As for possible retribution? If he knew, maybe?! But what ive seen is the dudes slinging around low amounts of various substances tend to be small potatoes in the drug world and are usually to damned stupid to put 1 plus 1 together to begin with!
    But I agree with folks here, mind your gosh danged business FFS!
    As a side note, it might be time to take a look at yourself!
    Take a look at six of the closest people in your life.
    Do three or more fit the following?

    1 Deal drugs
    2 Do hard drugs (Not pot!)
    3 Prone to violent behaviour
    4 Are involved with the “system”… as in waiting to go to court for various criminal matters!
    5 Unemployable!
    6 Constantly have negative interactions with law enforcement!

    If you answered yes more than no…Get new friends!
    Now if you evaluated yourself and answered yes more than no, change things up, your life needs some improvement! 🙂

    You sound like you suck.

  18. I think you had a lot of courage. All these dopies here just try to scare you.

  19. YES — snitches get stitches. and your name would be all over his disclosure. you’re going down, as you should you rat goof

  20. Hope he was dealing meth and not just good old pot. Cuz I’d feel like a super jerk now for ratting someone out for weed.

    You snitched on a homie for runnin game? You’re dogshit…

    Drugs is a crime of morality. The stats on junkies are overstated and the crime that can accompany it is created by the legality of the same.

    People turn to this, quite often, as a rock bottom last resort contrary to what some think. Now am not advocating everyone should sell but it can be more complex than just running illegal game.

    As for junkies, ya it’s sad but that personality will always find something to latch onto be it scrips, booze, other legalized addictions or scheduled drugs… it’s a fucken scam in many ways.

    By having your friend busted you probably cost him product and money… his guy is coming after him for both because you dimed him out. If it wasn’t for you the choice was to lose contact with him, instead you may have created more problems and put them in danger. Now you’re out here looking out for yourself…

    Edit: I’ve seen those types that treat it like a music video… the ones that flaunt, that shit comes back on them. Congrats you’re a rat for no reason at all

  22. You’re a Goof you fucking Rat

  23. Enjoy the next 15 months

  24. Yup, he knows it was you! He’ll most likely embrace you with a warm punch to the face!

  25. He wasn’t your friend if you ratted him out.

    You seriously need to ask this question try minding your own business and you won’t have to worry. If he’s hurting a woman or child call the cops if he’s not mind your own business
