Who Gives a Rat's...about Whos a Rat.Com?
24 May 2007
Americans are saying to the US Govt,you can only abuse us for so long and then it will be all over because we will stop passively cooperating with you and begin actively fighting against you!
American govt.judiciary officials are outraged about this website called "WhosaRat.Com" because it is identifying (from publicly available court documents) people who are snitches and informants for the local police,the FBI etc. Many of these informants were coerced into being police and U.S.Govt informants by threats of further criminal charges and longer prison terms if they (or in some cases their family members) didn't comply!
WhosaRat.com obviously doesn't like these kinds of sadistic coercion of citizens by the American Govt.and so it investigates and publishes the details of some of these dehumanizing tactics to inform and educate the public and I guess also to try to embarass the US Govt and its Justice Dept?

On a similiar theme the US Justice Dept is also outraged by the Rap Music Stars entreaty to the inner-city residents,to "Stop Snitchin!" and to just simply stop cooperating and stop telling the police anything at all about any local crimes or criminals.
These themes are similiar because the "Stop Snitchin" philosophy was an honest if not also a hostile reaction by the people of the inner cities and ghettoes to fascist tactics of police and prosecutors to target them with "special" draconian laws that dished out long,unappeable, manditory-minimum sentences and 3-Strikes laws!

Whats really happening is that many American are saying we've had enough of this inhumane judicial abuse against us and these "Police State" tactics and so we are no longer going to cooperate with you because you're betrayed our trust and just like in a dictatorship,summarily trampled and destroyed all of our civil and legal rights.

Americans are saying to the US Govt,you can only abuse us for so long and then it will be all over because we will stop passively cooperating with you and begin actively fighting against you!
