Subject: File Number S7-33-10: Whistleblower Award Program

December 6, 2010

Dear Ms. Murphy

I just signed a petition saying:

"More whistleblowing about corporate crimes could have made the foreclosure crisis and economic meltdown less severe. Whistleblowers should never be forced or engouraged to take their concerns to their potentially corrupt bosses first: Those who go directly to the government deserve the strongest rewards and protections allowed by law."

WikiLeaks and similar orginizations are finally exposing the corruption and criminal activities that are running rampant in this country's economic and foreign policies! If we had this kind of information before we wouldn't be in the recessive position we are in now! Protect whistleblower's rights and freedom of speech!
