    Has anyone here reported a crime and if so whats is the proceedure.
    Everyone is saying yes but only under anonimity so if I call the police lets say.... from a phone box in 1/2 way tree and report something or give them a tip as to where they can locate someone, they gonna ask me for info about myself and so on??
    I understand if there's a reward and you want to claim it you would have to let your self be known but besides those instances can't one remain anonimous??

    Called police when crime in progress, but that's about it. Never had to do anything else.

    Not sure about that. I think King Fish supposed to be anonymous.

    I think you can be anonymous to an extent, but even if you cannot, should criminals be allowed to continue their rampage? If everyone spoke out and made things difficult for criminals, whether anonymous or not, criminals could not stop them all.

    its kinda like in spider man when spiderman didn't get the money from this guy for winning the contest all the guy said to him was "i missed the part where that was my problem", and then a robber came in and stole the money from that dude and spiderman let him get away by steppin aside to let him into the elevator... when the dude asked him why he let him get away spiderman replied... "i missed the part where that was my problem"
    but it was his problem because that same man that robbed the dude needed a get away car and killed spiderman's uncle to get his... *sigh* it really is all of us problem, we have to fight it together and form an alliance with the police, cuz it affects us all.

    The anti-informer culture isn't unique to Jamaica. There this Stop Snitchin' campaign in the US. Rappers etc. are encouraging people to not cooperate with the police.

    That's only because of racism. Black americans are inclined to believe that the cops will give them a hard time just because they're black. Unfortunately, the canvas hatred for 5-0 by black americans also cloaks those among them which are actually wrong doers. That's a cultural phenomenon gone horribly awry.

    In Jamaica, many police and criminals are effectively the same people. That's why so many criminals are signing up to be cops, and why so many cops are corrupt. What you see on the news is just criminals in uniform beating down on criminals in casuals. Those in the force which are blameless are collectively lumped along with those which abuse authority for their own nefarious agenda. However, one set outnumbers the other.

    I dunno. It just makes no sense to me that people turn a blind eye to criminality in their community, shelter criminals, then bawl and cry out for help when said criminals turn on them. If they were informing on these crooks, they wouldn't feel safe enough to wreak the havoc that they do.

    It's not as easy as that. I know a family (all 5 of them) that died because on person decided to 'rat' to the cops. It's sad, but so true. The police can't be trusted, and until they can (which is a hard task), it just seems safer keeping you mouth shut.
    You know what?! Just live everyday as if it's your last.
    Why? Because one of these days, you're gonna be sooo right.
