Dying Chicago teen wouldn't snitch to police about his own murderer
"No-snitching" mind-set is making it increasingly difficult to solve murder cases
CHICAGO — Robert Tate wasn't ever going to snitch -- not even when it came to his own murder, according to the Chicago Police.
Tate, 17, was shot in the chest as someone approached him on a West Side sidewalk on the evening of April 12, police say. Seeing that Tate was wounded badly and probably wouldn't make it, an officer asked: Do you know who shot you?
