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."

Why is it so much to ask that the average citizen get fair treatment? Corporate and Government transparency means exactly that - these organizations have the right to be audited by their "supporters" (every citizen that is affected by either said entity).
