Getting violations for the nation, correlating, you dry snitching
On the previous verse he mentions that the cops are never on their side, and with “Chiraq”, the people are being left alone, with no one else to look for them.
On the other hand, cops will get involved when it comes to putting kids on the corner of the streets slanging, and neighbors calling for problems with another neighbors, or couples fighting, and kids getting beat up… All those crimes, which are not small in their extent, but are being attended to leave more major problems of the whole community (like Drug Wars — e.g. Dealing with the drug “lords” instead of busting kids on the corner). The cops are basically looking at the whole population as one and is not attending to segregate them, in order to leave the citizens in security and shelter.
Chance may also be talking about the tendency of police and others in positions of authority and power to corroborate stories and operate in underhanded and immoral ways. Many of these institutions are set up in a way that protects their own and disconnects members from the reality of citizen life.
In Chicago, gangs are called ‘nations’, and if you break a nation rule u get “Violated”(Punished), and the biggest Violation is talking to the cops. “Rep yo nation”
