50 Cent didn't snitch to the police or the authorities, but in an early song titled Ghetto Qua'ran he seemed to point the finger at a powerful drug cartel that terrorised the New York borough of Queens. The tune included the line, "I'ma break it down iller/see 'Preme was the business man and Prince was the killer."
50 Cent has famously been shot nine times, and many people suspect that this song is one of the reasons why.

“Super-Grasses”, is a chapter from the new book; A Madness Shared by Two - that's about the life of the Eriksson twins and the murder of Glenn Hollinshead; - based on a critque examination of the BBC documentary; . The author claims the sisters were likely involved in a drug smuggling ring, and that a 'deal' may have been made with the police. The book exposes a police cover-up, and say this is probably due to the reason the twins were under "obbo", - police observation at the time of the M6 incident. It further exposes the edited-out 27sec of film footage from the original docementary, that proves the twins were first arrested under the 1983 Mental Health Act, millions have questioned; 'Why was Sabina released after only 5hrs from this act of madnesss on the motorway?' The Hollinshead family never knew of this film footage, and now are seeking legal action. In another first, it also reveals that the coroner's report indicates two weapons were used, and that Sabina could be totally innocent of his murder/manslaughter, and that the real killer/s could still be on the loose!
"Supergrass" is a slang term for an informer who “grasses” on other members of the gang. One of the first police “grasses” to receive the ‘Supergrass’ nickname, was Bertie Smalls, real name Derek Creighton [1935-2008], born in the East End of London. I once see him in a night club in Tottenham, called Elton's. He had a kind of Bob Hoskins look and sound about him, a short, squat man, who loved to emphasis his Cockney accent. Throughout history there’s been ‘grasses’, the police were able to jail the Kray twins on the evidence given by gang member Leslie Payne. One of Britain’s most active armed robbers, Bertie “Smalls” was arrested in 1973. Yet despite being involved in many violent crimes in London and the south-east area, he negotiated himself a deal with the Director of Public Prosecutions, Sir Norman Skelhorn, whereby he would go “QE”, which means to give Queen’s Evidence, in trials of his fellow-robbers in exchange for complete an utter immunity. [1a] Although Smalls was generally described as Britain’s first supergrass, the former Flying Squad ‘governor’ from Scotland Yard, Detective Superintendent Leonard “Nipper” Read, always maintained it was Leslie Payne, adviser to the Kray twins, who gave evidence against them in 1969, who should have had the title.[1a] More info; http://bendover2098339.newsvine.com/_news/2012/12/22/16088198-super-grasses-bertie-smalls-michael-michaels-leslie-payne

Yep, you're absolutely right when you compare the place with 'Dickens'..
The funny thing is, my family members i.e., cousins, who lived there for many years all turned out to be good and honest people... Just goes to show that human decency can survive even within the depths of horror that surrounds them.
LOL, Lewis Day
I know what you mean about 'Walworth'.. hell on earth.. least it was!
Some years ago, I had family who lived there, and as a kid I would visit them regularly.
Pub closing times, at the weekend were reminiscent to something out of a wild west movie set.
Police with their dogs would have to stand end to end of every street trying (unsuccessfully) to keep the street fighters separated. When the sun came up, the local residents would go out and clear away the remnants of broken bottles and blood spills - then totter off to the local nick to collect their bruised and battered spouses.- and all before the kids woke up!
On a visit one day, I remember seeing kids playing football in the middle of the road - nothing unusual about that, until I got a little closer and realised the 'Ball' was in fact, a GREAT DANES HEAD!! ( Dog that is..) Argh! Absolutely true, I promise you!
The sheer mention of the place 'Walworth' still sends shivers down my spine.
