Chief: ‘No-snitch’ culture a disgrace as dozens of witnesses to teen’s murder refuse to speak to police


A Pennsylvania teen was fatally shot at a party in Upper Darby over the weekend- and not one person out of over 30 attendees is willing to talk to police.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Mike Chitwood expressed his disgust towards the partygoers, who refuse to come forward with information after the unidentified teen was chased out of the house party and into the street, where he was shot three times.

Around “three to four males” were involved in the incident but remain unidentified, thanks to the tight lips of all who went to the party.

“The people at the party, they all know,” Chitwood said. “Not one has come forward.”

In fact, Chitwood told the Delco Times that police were initially ignored and told to leave.

“At first they refused to answer the door, and they subsequently started yelling, screaming and cursing at the cops. They did not want to say anything,” Chitwood said.

Chitwood claims that the local demographics of the neighborhood has a “no-snitch” culture, which has led to constant trouble.

“I’ve been doing this for 50 years, it’s been part of the culture…But it’s disgusting and disgraceful to see these bums allowed to take over the neighborhood,” he said. “Until they come forward, the neighborhood won’t be safe. No matter how you address it, that’s the bottom line.”
