Why would we automatically bestow the mantle of saint on the person who dons the mantle of whistle blower?
When somebody betrays the trust placed on them by their employer without quitting that employer in disgust, what makes their activity unchallengeable?

Why should they not be sought ought and terminated?
Their employment, that is.
