This Sunday 9/15/13 on HOT 97FM Street Soldiers with Lisa Evers, we'll be talking about "THE STREET CODE OF NO SNITCHING: Is it a myth or reality?"
1 year old Antiq Hennis was in his stroller when a bullet pierced his head, killing the little boy. Authorities say that bullet was meant for his father, Anthony Hennis, an alleged gang member with at least 20 arrests.
But supposedly Anthony Hennis would not cooperate with police in trying to find his baby's killer. Even though he is the main witness, he reportedly would not look at mug shot photos. People are asking "why"? That's his child.
Even without his cooperation, the NYPD arrested the alleged triggerman and the alleged gun supplier.
The street code says "don't talk" but when it's your baby, is that going too far? And is "no snitching" more movie make believe than reality? Those in the know say even the most hardened gangsters start talking when they're looking at a lot of time behind bars.
We're looking for the following guests:
1) An ex-offender (we can protect your identity) who can talk about the street code vs the reality.
2) A current or recent ex-gang member (we can protect your identity) who can explain what the pressure is, and what people outside of a gang culture don't understand.
3) A criminal defense lawyer who can tell us what kind of deals he or she has struck for their clients.
4) A prosecutor who can talk about what actually goes on once someone is brought in.
5) Someone who never saw their loved one's killer brought to justice because no witnesses ever came forward.
