One of their key assets were snitches who reported on neighbours, family, friends and enemies. It is estimated that at one point 1 in a 100 East German citizens worked as snitches for the state.

Virginia Gov. wants people to snitch on Christians

According to Liberty Counsel, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is encouraging citizens to snitch on people who are breaking his lockdown orders. The state even provided an online snitch form that you can fill out to snitch on your neighbours, friends or anyone you hold a grudge against. It could even be family member if you like (Matthew 10:21-22).

Most people don’t have to be told to call the police if they see someone seriously breaking the law or if they witness a car accident. They don’t need a snitch line.
