Bank of America hammers whistle blower

Check out what Bank of America did to this whistle blower.

This type of “justice” will make people think twice about stepping up to be whistle blowers. this outcome disturbs me for two reasons. 1. I publicly blew the whistle on a Missouri Attorney General more than 20 years ago, resulting in widespread public exposure of his corruption, so this issue is personal to me, and 2. Whistle blowers are often the only source of unfiltered information for the public, information that can serve the public good. We need to get over the idea that whistle-blowing is improper simply because whistle-blowers disobey their employers’ wishes or disobey laws even as they are achieving a greater good with no personal gain.
