Snitching is good. I promote snitching. All the time. Every time. If possible. Obviously in certain parts of Philadelphia, people’s lives are threatened. And they’re afraid. As well they should be. Because a culture where outing the perpretator of a crime is considered grounds for murder, people are going to be afraid. Until a majority rises against such terrorist/intimidating/bullying techniques.
But I must say I didn’t expect to see supporters of the so-called “Hipster Grifter” Kari Ferrell condemn Philadelphia musician Sam Tremble, who turned Kari into the police this past Sunday, May 3rd. (She has supporters? Whoda thunk?) I guess I didn’t expect people to get so emotionally involved in white collar crime. (Where were all these supporters when Philly hottie Jocleyn Kirsch scammed folks, btw?)
Check out the comments at Citypaper. So far Mr. Tremble has been called “snitch” a half a dozen times. He’s also been physically threatened by Kari fans.
Really, guys? Really?
You want to defend a gal who takes time out from being on the lam for photoshoots? If she thinks those purty photos are going to melt a judge’s heart, I’m guessing she’s quite mistaken. (“Well-behaved bitches seldom make history” T-Shirt, are you serious?) What sort of photographer takes photos of wanted criminals anyway? I’d think people would be condemning photographer Will Sherman. Why didn’t he turn her in?
PG readers, feel free to go on Citypaper’s website and support Sam. Snitching isn’t always fun, but as one commenter notes, and I’m paraphrasing here, “if she stole your money, you’d want her caught too.”
Forget that, how about her confessional video that isn’t quite a confession. Judge for yourself. (Clearly the dumbest criminal ever. Dying to get caught and be famous.)
Truly disgusting. Stealing isn’t what phillygrrls do, K.F. Stay outta our town.
