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

December 9, 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."

Please help protect our "whistleblowers". In America, we should always have freedom of information, if these corporations don't do anything wrong, they have nothing to hide. The only reasons I can think of that they would want the whistleblowers NOT to go to the GOVERNMENT are to bribe, or perhaps even blackmail these freedom fighters to silence. Please keep the information open to our citizens, Amir
