Firing squads for Whistle blowers

Snurbutt is sure to cream his huggie over this:

 

snip-- After months of anguished debate over mass shootings, gun control and Second Amendment rights, the Justice Departmentfinds itself on the defensive after a training manual surfaced that suggests federal agents could face a firing squad for leaking government secrets.

 

 

   A photo in the online manual for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — complete with a photo of a turn-of-the-century firing squad — was obtained by The Washington Times from a concerned federal law enforcement official, and it immediately drew protests from watchdogs who said it showed a lack of sensitivity to gun violence and the continuing hostile environment toward whistleblowers.

  Stephen Kohn, executive director of the National Whistleblower Center, said the DOJ has forgotten about the protections of the First Amendment, which covers leaks to the media, and that the photo could scare its employees into self-censorship.

True whistleblowers are those committed to public integrity and willing to speak out.

They have a right to protection: http://www.WarOnWhistleblowers.com/
