This item relates both to 6884 and 6799 as well as 6800.
source: ... Rap star Cam'ron says there's no situation -- including a serial killer living next door -- that would cause him to help police in any way, because to do so would hurt his music sales and violate his "code of ethics." Cam'ron, whose real name is Cameron Giles, talks to Anderson Cooper for a report on how the hip-hop culture's message to shun the police has undermined efforts to solve murders across the country.
"Rappers appear to be concerned about damaging what's known as their "street credibility," says Geoffrey Canada, an anti-violence advocate and educator from New York City's Harlem neighborhood. "
We live in 2 different worlds. Mine looks more like 6752. This extends 6884 with more evidence of bad examples which come out from a segment of society which coarsens life; liberal cries of 1st amendment free speech notwithstanding.
Obviously rapper Cam'ron is part of M$M

Sorry about the color reference by Canada in view of [item 714] . I may delete it later, but then the positive part of the story would disappear.
