Financial pinches lead to willing snitches

The economic wizard behind Wallstreetfighter.com has some interesting analysis of the money behind snitching. The New York Times recently noted that as the economy lags along, calls to crime tip hotlines have gone up. Don't quit your day job though, first off you have to be somewhat of a lowlife to know there whereabouts of many criminals, and to make $700 a week, you are going to have to net 3 arrests a week. Not easy work, with plenty of job-related hazards.
