More Trouble for Carmelo Anthony

By  | 

In a city struggling with drug violence, some activists are concerned about Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony's appearance in a homemade DVD titled "Stop Snitching."

In the DVD, Anthony stands next to a man who warns that people who tip Baltimore police about drug deals will "get a hole in their head."

Marc Cannadi is an activist who did prison time for armed robbery, attempted murder and drug distribution. He says Anthony's appearance in the DVD sends an insidious message that drugs are the only way to achieve his type of success.

Anthony's agent says the basketball star didn't know he would appear in the DVD and doesn't approve of its content.

But activists say Anthony should try to make a difference in his old neighborhood instead of hanging around people like those seen on the DVD.
