Technology is Morally Neutral: Guns and Jeers Used by Gangs to Buy Silence

The NY Times reports that: Guns and Jeers Used by Gangs to Buy Silence:

“And in each city, CD’s and DVD’s titled “Stop Snitching” have surfaced, naming some people street gangs suspect of being witnesses against them and warning that those who cooperate with the police will be killed. To underscore its message, the Baltimore DVD shows what appears to be three dead bodies on its back cover above the words “snitch prevention.”

CDs and DVDs are apparently the modern equivalent of a horse’s head on the bed.
