TO ALL MY BOSTON GUYS AND ANYONE WHO LIVES BY THIS CODE TO NEVER TATTLETALE OR RAT AND LIVE BY THAT CODE OF HONOR .
Omertà /oʊˈmɛərtə/ (Italian pronunciation: [omerˈta]) is a code of honor that places importance on silence, non-cooperation with authorities, and non-interference in the illegal actions of others. It originated and remains common in Southern Italy, where banditry or brigandage and Mafia-type criminal organizations (like the Camorra, Cosa Nostra, 'Ndranghetaand Sacra Corona Unita) are strong. It is also deeply rooted in rural Spain, Crete(Greece), and Corsica, all of which share a common or similar historic culture with Southern Italy.
It also exists, to a lesser extent, in certain Italian-American, Jewish, African-American, Spanish, and Hispanic neighborhoods where the deep rooted Mediterranean culture has influence, as well as in Italian ethnic enclaves in countries such as Germany, Canada, and Australia, where Italian organized crime exists. Retaliation against informers is common in criminal circles, where informers are known as "rats" or "snitches".
