Default Missouri residents who 'snitched' on lockdown rule-breakers fear retaliation after...

I am not feeling sorry for these snitches. Grant it I might be very biased due to the fact this covid-19 virus is being greatly over exaggerated.



More than 900 Missouri residents who 'snitched' on lockdown rule-breakers fear retaliation after their details are leaked online


https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...tml#newcomment

Hundreds of people have been exposed for reporting people who have flouted social distancing rules and some are now scared they could receive a backlash.

The names and addresses of approximately 900 people in Missouri were released as part of a media request under the Sunshine Law, which allows for the release of information submitted to a public agency (except for wrongdoing and abuse tips).

St. Louis County had urged the community to share details of anyone not following guidelines in response to the coronavirus pandemic and noted in the terms and conditions that information may be shared publicly.

What "rule" did they break?

And who created this "rule"?

Neither the governor nor any city's mayor has the right or authority to create such a "rule" out of thin air.

What's more, I can almost guarantee that many of these snitches did NOT "tattletale" on a neighbor or someone they know because of any actual "lockdown rule-breakage", but because of previous arguments and disagreements, and used this county-approved snitchline to harass/punish/aggravate them...

Own your actions. Apparently, they have no problem being 'holier than thou', but have a problem owning what they did.

I hope the snitches do receive a backlash, because they are despicable human beings, and they deserve it.
