I arrived on the scene first and came upon a crowd where some of Cody students stood around. I cut through them. Mario's body was covered in blood. I questioned the students but the no snitch rule had them not talking.
What's the no snitch rule?
The rule to me is no one tells what he or she sees and he or she may survive another day.
Has this rule hindered your investigations?
Yes, I could've arrested the shooters the same day.
Did you every say "I am waiting for the drug dealers to kill each other off then …"?
Yes, I did. The people on the block want to abide by the no snitch rule and not help the cops. Why should I make the effort to protect and serve? The dealers fight among themselves over anything. Why shouldn't I allow them to kill each other?
Are you burnt out?
Yeah, I am. I have walked up to crime scenes where kids' backs, limps and heads are shot off.
No one can speak up to stop this. You got the EMS crew waiting until the police come because they are afraid of getting shot. The victims mostly died before making it to the hospital. The criminals try to run the whole damn city.
