This is a great little documentary Louis Theroux has done for the BBC about policing North Philly. The "no snitching" code, the complete lack of cooperation with the cops and the level of violence remind me of north Belfast  in the 70s and 80s. In Belfast extortion and protection rackets greased the wheels, in Philly its all about crack, meth and heroin.
