Birmingham Alabama - Kids talk in school. The problem in the past, though, was that they didn't do much talking to police.
Authorities hope a little cash, mixed with the success of the proven Crimestoppers program, will change that.
They call it Scholastic Crimestoppers, and they hope it will take a bite out of school crime.
"The children need a way, without fear of retaliation, to be able to turn a drug pusher in."
Nice how they come right out with the real purpose for this program.
Times Record News has a opinion on Alabama's Scholastic Snitching Program and they make some excellent points. I predict they will spend more time chasing teenage girls turned in by other teenage girls over a boy.
Don't we have better things to do y'all?
Special thanks to Grits for Breakfast for the heads-up on this story.
