The First Whistleblower Protection Law was passed in 1777. A very good storySubmitted by realman2020 on Sat, 06/29/2013 - 11:10
This sounds like history repeating itself. The first whistle blower protection law was passed after sailors with the continental Navy was concerned about the commander using the tactics of torture and other inhumane means to coarse British Prisoners of war. To the shock of a few sailors committed mutiny to stop the immoral acts by relieving the officer of duty.
Even though the Captain arrested and criminally charged the sailors for doing their duty exposing torture. This is why Congress passed the first whistle blower protection law with no one objecting. I wish these whistle blower laws were taken just as serious when Abu Grab was exposed that not only low level people by Lindy England went to jail. The chain of command should have shared a prison block with her..
