The good little fascists who have been snitching on their neighbors during the coronavirus in Missouri got a rude wake-up call this week when they discovered that their names can be uncovered with a request for government records!
The snitches are shocked because they expected to be able to hide behind anonymity in perpetuity.
But all it takes to find out who the anti-American little creeps are is to file a Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA) and anyone on record snitching will be listed plain as day!
Scores of Missourians who tipped off county authorities that local businesses had violated COVID-19 lockdown requirements in March and April are now worried about being publicly shamed after their names and addresses were published on Facebook.
Jared Totsch, who shared the names on his Facebook page on April 16 after obtaining the list of 900 complainants from St. Louis County official under Missouri’s Sunshine Law, said on his Facebook page that tipsters should have realized their information could be made public, according to a report in the newspaper Independent.
Now the little proto fascists are worried neighbors will be able to find out who they are and just might have a few things to say about their snitching.
But Totsch shrugged off the snitchers’ worries. “If they are worried about retaliation, they should have read the fine print which stated their tips would be open public record subject to a Sunshine request, and should not have submitted tips in that manner, to begin with,” he rightly said.
In other words, mind your own business.
