Why the America has lost the game every time.

REASON:

Tito will never forget the night he learned that the FBI had put a $5m price on the head of Diego León Montoya Sánchez ("Don Diego"), the leader of what was then Colombia's most powerful drug cartel. As the newest name on the FBI's list of 10 most wanted, Montoya was second only to Osama bin Laden as America's most wanted.

The failure to pay rewards may undermine the system, according to Alexandra Natapoff, a law professor at Loyola Law School, and the author of Snitching: Criminal Informants and the Erosion of American Justice.

"At some point these promises stop working if the government is no longer perceived as reliable by people who might give information," she said.
