Washington State Governor Inslee wants to create an army of informers who will turn in their neighbors to the state so he can punish them for being insubordinate to his virus proclamations.

This article has NOT been approved by Inslee’s Ministry of Covid Compliance.

*Update: Please note, I have to keep updating the download location due to heavy volume and it appears those sites get taken down.

There have been multiple concerns raised in Washington State recently by the “snitch on your neighbor” websites and other efforts made by local government to create on-line tools to report your neighbor and local business for violating Washington State Governor Inslee’s Corona Virus  Lockdown proclamations.  In some cases, like the Bellevue Police Department clearly stated last month, this was a way to reduce the workload of the 911 call center who were being inundated with panic calls from citizens who spent their days cooped up at home with the only entertainment (in between Netflix binging) available appears to be spying on their neighbor and reporting all potential “violations” to the police.  For those who already had conflicts with their neighbors, this was a great way to escalate the ongoing fight.  It is not a great way to build harmony, and it certainly doesn’t help the police stop the real criminals.

Washington State Governor Inslee decided to create a state wide “Inslee Ministry of Covid Compliance” (a truth tag we added for clarity) hotline/website (see here) where bored citizens could also report the businesses they felt were not obeying Inslee and those who were not properly subordinate to whatever whimsical proclamation Governor Inslee kicked out next.  This produced a bonanza of complaints, and thanks to Washington State’s public records act (RCW 42.56), this is the first installment of the list of Inslee’s informant army.  Download the 146 page PDF file yourself here.  Or, you can download a more useful Excel file here. Or, you’ll have to send me a message and I’ll email it to you. Note, there appear to be over 7,000 entries.  Most people who filed complaints also included their email and phone number, which is now part of this public record (a fact Inslee conveniently left out and probably did not communicate to the complainers).

I’ve expressed concern in years past for turning neighbor against neighbor by allowing anonymous complaints to be weaponized as the basis for tortuous harassment by code enforcement officers, central planning departments, and the various environmental groups who must justify their existence by hurting and harassing as many people as possible.  Of course, it was always “for the environment,” “for the pocket gopher,” or “global warming” or some other excuse.  I’ve detailed a variety of stories related to the ridiculous outcome of that process here, here, and here.  I’ve always been concerned about how encouraging these complaints between neighbors and enemies causes a breakdown in community, reduces the ability of people to work out their differences (which only become chasms when the bumbling power of the state gets involved), and how it creates pointless divisions in communities and among neighbors escalating minor neighbor annoyances into Defcon 1 bitter battles.

Governor Jay Inslee

However, this new state-wide informant line is particularly concerning because Governor Inslee’s proclamations have been sudden, random, and a substantial portion of the population will not accept his goal of destroying their business, livelihood, or future.  Additionally, this is the Governor who early released 5,000 violent felons so they could continue to inflict additional bonus violence and harm on the law abiding people of the state – including murders – just because his Dept. of Corrections had a known software glitch which they didn’t fix for years.  Ooops, Inslee’s bad – oh well, not like there are any consequences for him, just the rest of us suckers who live here.  The Governor was eager to release another 1,000 felons to prey on the unarmed and vulnerable early last month including sex offenders and other criminals because they might catch the virus in prison.  At the same time this Governor has also been doing everything in his power to restrain and deny the citizens of the state the right to defend themselves. 

So, while releasing violent felons on the law-abiding citizens of the state is state policy, and police resources have been stretched thin dealing with a substantial increase in crime in many parts of the state, the Governor also wants to use police powers to threaten businesses and citizens who don’t follow his proclamations – regardless of how irrational and illegal they might be.  When the opportunity to join Inslee’s Informant Army was presented, thousands jumped at the chance to turn in their neighbors for being “insubordinate” to Governor Jay Inslee.

A few notes about the complaints:

  1. The spelling is so atrocious in many cases it makes it difficult to even understand the complaint (If you are doing that on purpose – good one, but I suspect literacy is just on the decline these days)
  2. Many complaints are filed by business competitors trying to harm each other
  3. Some complaints appear to be from workers who believe they can make more on unemployment
  4. Often, it appears, that if someone didn’t like the business in the first place, this was a good way to pile on and throw something more at it.
  5. I liked the innovative complaints on all the private aircraft taking off from Renton airport (and elsewhere).  Very detailed. 
  6. It was a nice touch to see people file complaints on Inslee himself using this system (no reason to stop)
Spying on your neighbors can be fun

Some favorite quotes from the snitch list

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the Ministry of Covid Compliance snitch list (I’ve censored the full names and home addresses, but you can get the unredacted version from the state’s own list here) Or, an Excel file here:

Read the complaints for yourself by downloading the list here.  Or, an Excel file here. Again, if you want a more useful Excel file, it is quite large, I can email it to you if you send a message.

Now, I think I’m going to get on that complaint website and file some complaints against Inslee, the Department of Ecology, and all the genius politicians and bureaucrats who thought this was a good idea in the first place.

  1. Looks like Stalin is alive an well, his policies live on! Turn in your neighbor comrade & the state will thank you!… Really? All they are is a bunch of gutless wonders with too much time on their liberal\Antifa hands😵

  2. Thanks for your submission. I also believe laptop computers are becoming more and more popular lately, and now are usually the only form of computer employed in a household. The reason is that at the same time they are becoming more and more reasonably priced, their working power keeps growing to the point where they’re as effective as personal computers coming from just a few years ago.

  3. Wow, how pathetic do you have to be to tattle on others. These people are the worst people, I applaud those who have gone against the government and kept their businesses open. It’s my choice to go to these businesses.

  4. Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening.
    I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this
    content together. I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  5. I have inserted the Excel data into a database bound to a website, the result is over 7,000 new posts. They can now be searched and filtered just like any other article on my website. You can browse Washington Cop Callers at https://wa.copblaster.com/snitches/copcallers/ or if you just want to search the data from this list you can use the search box above the posts on this user profile https://copblaster.com/blaster/StayHome/

    I recommend using the first option because it has a better search tool.

    Tag archives have been created for snitch names, business names, and business types.

    You can post comments beneath the body of each post.

  6. The link to the Excel file has exactly 20,000 records in it. That is a really round number. Is there a different file with more? or did you only get the first 20,000 or what?

    Also – did I miss it? or is there a guide to what the colors mean?

    • I’ve had to change the link to the Excel file a few times as certain links have crashed. There should be approximately 7700+ lines Not sure what 20k refers to. No, I don’t know what the colors mean.

  7. Glad I was searching twitter when I did. This is probably the best thing that has happened for me to read this week so far. Just a little bit of justice, they couldn’t hide behind a computer… Disappointing that as people it has come to this, but it is good to realize and wake up and figure out who to trust neighbor wise.

    • Don’t support that crap either – what makes you think anyone who cares about freedom would? That is definitely a 4th Amendment problem, and I don’t really care which party supports it.

  8. I just seen that Eric opal from Wenatchee turned in a bunch of workers including ridge cycles the bike sales company he states that the employees are paid under the table… I know for 100% fat this is fact that he tells his customers because he owns a window washing company he tells his customers that if they pay in cash could give them a discount and then he does not report it and does not pay taxes on it he’s done this for years and years. not to mention the bridge cycle owner is his new wife’s ex-husband so honestly he’s just picking on the guy and the other one he complained about is BC windows that is hls competition here in Wenatchee you’re just putting neighbors against neighbors and it’s only going to end up in violence and destruction in anger

  9. Thanks for the work, but the Excel file link appears broken. Could you please put it back up. I need to parse it so that I can add it to a database that will be far more search visible.

  10. Could you do a FOIA request for March calls??? Those would be a really true tell of complainers.

  11. The (Preamble) of the Constitution FOR the United States of America, not only begins with “We the People” (not persons; not citizens; not subjects, but the People), it also ends with “or to the People.”

    The People FULLY SURROUND the Constitution FOR (not “of”) the United States of America.

    We the People OWN the governments, no matter what the governments tell us.

    • Very true. It just means that at some point, We the People have to regain control over the Leviathan which we have created and allowed to bloat unchecked for so long…

  12. Hi Glen,

    Will you kindly also send me the excel file, please? Also, please keep sharing why large government is a slippery slope and bad idea for a nation of free people.

    Thank you in advance,
    Honeylieg V. Wiltse

  13. Glen, Thanks for this article! I was unable to download the excel file (it may have been withdrawn), so please send me a link or attachment of the excel (or better yet CSV) file. Thanks again!

  14. Glen, YOU ROCK!!!!
    OMGosh, went to purchase some work boots. Cash is not as track easy as a card and i use cash only. Took me 2 days to acomplish my purchase and i was reminded how wonderful the feed store was for staying open. FEAR PORN all the way as people crumble and give away ALL AUTHORITY about their health, economics and now as time moves on to have such fear they “tell” on those businesses that THEY DON’T even HAVE TO USE!

    There’s a pleasant voice audio as well… thank you so much for another on point article! You may not agree with the body of work but you may as well. Snitch list …history repeats. It’s incredible to realize there are people out here so controlled, so programed…they really believe they’re doing the right thing. How tough is that to choke …but IS. I do hope the common sense in people will break through. Maybe watch a few videos like “psy op” and what that means. These are the same people that still feel Kennedy was killed by a single bullet and that Hussein ran some planes through the towers…wow. In case someone besides your self reads this …don’t misunderstand there’s a heck of a bunch of unhealthy people in general out there. Disease is rampant in our “advanced” nation but so is toxicity. People may want to spend some time looking at the clear documentation about how they may improve their immune systems and take common sense precautions which DO NOT mean isolation and being told one cannot work to support ones family! IN FACT; it’s pretty disasterous to treat ones immunity with cheap masks and gloves with such a “bubble” Bless yer heart buddy, thanks for WORKING and turning out these terrific thoughtful and informational articles. Your spread sheet clear enuff, i just want to contact businesses that are staying open and CONGRATULATE them…will let u know if i can’t find #’s to do that but looks good so far. Also, the below link is in parts …hopefully your readers or anyone that’s still pretty scared can consider “Perspectives on the Pandemic” | Professor Knut Wittkowski Update Interview | Episode 5

    re masks , isolation etc

  15. “1984 was not supposed to be an instruction manual.” Now that’s pretty damn funny.

  16. After reading a few pages this Washington State Snitch List reminds me of the Stasi files I read following the fall of the East German government.

  17. Seems like the manager of Sandberg Volvo wanted to close all the competition down. I find it hard to believe he went all over the state checking around 30 dealerships in such a short time period. Looks like he also complained on all of the other Volvo stores in the state. This will make it hard to trade with these other dealerships in the future. I guess it makes sense as Volvo is a Chinese company.

  18. There is a scary movie called Three form hell by Rob Zombie, a quote in that movie. Snitches Get Stitches ! Had to compare a movie like that this article. Like The Walking Dead tv show matches what Americans are fighting concerning the Virus. Compare the intel…Every season has a lesson for us and the kids of America.. They knew ahead of time !

  19. Glen, thanks for all the work you are doing. The pdf file is a challenge could you send me an excel copy please. Just a note, Walla Walla held a rally 05/09/20 at first and main. I mention this location because many gatherings and rallies are held here. A noticeable change was that Land Title had taped off their private property, this has never been done to other groups. We had, by Walla Walla standards, a large police presence-8! While the news paper said 6 I don’t think they saw the ones up on a balcony. As usual for conservatives it was a peaceful gathering and had a rather nice write up from the local paper. The reporter must be new, https://www.union-bulletin.com/news/health_fitness/coronavirus/downtown-protestors-demand-economic-reopening/article_edb9f985-fb87-52d8-b189-30134747d0ee.html

    • I will send it to you now. The file was just too large to post any other way, but I might try posting it in a few different formats, if it makes sense.
