The Use (and Misuse) of Confidential Informants
Published on September 30, 2012 by Sara Foss

I just read the September New Yorker piece about the rising use of young, untrained confidential informants by law enforcement.

Anyway, this is a piece that's very much worth reading. I hadn't given the issue of confidential informants a moment's thought, and Sarah Stillman's reporting really opened my eyes to a growing problem. Too many CIs appear to be turning up dead, leaving behind grieving families with unanswered questions.
