    About 11years ago we "snitched" on some young men selling drugs next to our house and the next morning our car tires were flat. These young men were white and some came from well to do families. In the case of one of the young men, who happened to be a neighbor of ours, the father knew what the son was doing. To this day when I see the father I think to myself that he should be thanking me for helping to save his sons.

    This was a mild case of retaliation dealing with some wanabe criminals, so I do understand peoples reluctance to "snitch".

  • I have gotten a few thumbs down on this thread. I hope the thumbs down are directed at me, maybe I'm not doing a good job expressing myself, and not at the believe in hope and prayer. Here are some verses that I believe support what I am saying:

    Romans 12:12
    Psalm 27:14
    Psalm 33:20
    John 14:14
    James 4:23
    Luke 18:35-43
