Fairfield County Sheriff and friends attempt to strike back, fall flat, and fail at the internet.

Since the The Mockingbird's first report on rape and other sexual abuse in the Fairfield County County jail and the resultant cover up, the powers that be have pushed back. Despite claiming in an interview with ABC 6 that the investigation was closed, Sheriff Dave Phalen repeated called family members of sources for our story demanding to speak to them within 48 hours of our first publication.

We can and will accept your leaks and protect your anonymity

A friend once asked me if I was going to find the next Edward Snowden. I told him, as the government well knows, you don't find Edward Snowden. Edward Snowden chooses you. A whistleblower wants to remain free. A whistleblower wants a media organization that will take a story public. These two desires are often in tension with each other. We have an app for that.
