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

December 7, 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."

I Believe that the SEC should write laws and rules protecting whistleblowers to be protect in order to provide the public notification of the crimnal acts banks have committed. SEC should fight for laws protect these people or how would the american people see how the SEC allow these criminal acts to go unpunished
