Nelson Hopkins Sr. says it’s not hip to give tips

At his Operation Promise Land press conference, Nelson Hopkins told the crowd of reporters that one of his first goals was to attack “Stop Snitching,” the catchphrase-slash-philosophy that discourages cooperating with police. It’s like the Mafioso code of silence, repurposed to protect street crime.

When people say they don’t want to snitch, Hopkins says he agrees with them — something that makes his fellow anti-crime activists’ jaws drop.
