    The Daily News article is chilling stuff. An Internal Affairs official calling “rat” on a whistleblowing cop is like a firefighter bringing marshmallows instead of a hoses. The Frank Serpico quotations in the article beg the question: how much has changed since Serpico scaled the blue wall of silence? The story is a reminder that while whistleblowers tend to be brave, whistleblowing cops are a rare breed apart who face down special self-preservation threats. It is also a reminder of how important word choice is when we talk about whistleblowers and why this is worth signing: http://www.whistleblower-insider.com/petition/#.UwzQQuN7LfA
