* The book version of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' has Marietta Edgecombe snitch on Dumbledore's Army instead of Cho Chang. She's portrayed as a Betrayer Barry and is left with the word "Sneak" written across her face in boils because Hermione hexed the club's roster sheet.

** "Mr. Monk Goes to the Dentist" had a Drug Doug type from the murder [[AssholeVictim "victim"]] of the week: The victim (an ex-cop who went renegade and started robbing armored trucks) is Denny Jardeen, who ends up having to go to Dr. Oliver Bloom for a chipped tooth that he gets in a scuffle with an armored car driver (in the resulting scuffle, both drivers were shot dead). As an ex-cop, Dr. Bloom is on Jardeen's medical plan. While going through the routine anesthesia, Jardeen, evidently under the anesthesia's influence, blabs to Dr. Bloom about the heist as well as the hiding place for the money, to which Dr. Bloom and hi assistant Teri steal the money. Unfortunately, Jardeen, either from lingering memories of what happened, or having put two-and-two together, confronts them in their office while they are working on a patient, and he is killed when Teri strikes him with the roots of a giant plastic tooth after a fight. Said patient Dr. Bloom is working on happens to be Randy, who tries to convince Stottlemeyer and Monk and anyone else around him that he saw the murder (Dr. Bloom cleans up the office after the fight and dumps the body as well).

* In ''Literature/TheAmyVirus'', Cyan's parents encourage her older sister Tam to snitch on her. It doesn't work, since Tam isn't on very good terms with her parents by that point either.

* Joseph Valachi was the first [[UsefulNotes/TheMafia Mafia member]] to admit in public, on national television that ''Cosa Nostra'' is real. No one knows for sure why he decided to flip, but it's speculated that Vito Genovese, a fellow inmate (and the boss of the Genovese crime family at the time), incorrectly branded him as [[TheInformant a rat]] and gave him the kiss of death - a sign that he was to be killed. Fearing for his life, he accidentally killed a fellow inmate he mistakenly believed had been assigned to kill him, and because of the murder, he faced the death penalty. Hoping to get a lesser sentence, Valachi decided to squeal on national television to the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, headed by John [=McClellan=] in late 1963. Although his disclosures never led directly to the prosecution of many mobsters, he provided a detailed glimpse of the Mafia's inner workings, aided in the solution of several unsolved murders, and named many members and the major crime families. His testimony proved to be damning for the Mafia, still reeling from the [[CriminalConvention Apalachin Debacle of 1957]], where a curious cop accidentally stumbled upon a major mob meeting. Also, law enforcement began to crack down on organized crime activities, bolstered by the passage of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act in 1970, which allowed entire criminal gangs and their leaders to be prosecuted for all of their criminal operations instead of just going after low-level grunts, thereby crippling the Mafia by the 1990s.

* Joseph Valachi was the first [[UsefulNotes/TheMafia Mafia member]] to admit in public, on national television that ''Cosa Nostra'' is real. No one knows for sure why he decided to turn on his fellow mobsters, but it's speculated that Vito Genovese, a fellow inmate (and the boss of the Genovese crime family at the time), incorrectly branded him as [[TheInformant an informer]] and gave him the kiss of death - a sign that he was to be killed. Fearing for his life, he accidentally killed a fellow inmate he mistakenly believed had been assigned to kill him, and because of the murder, he faced the death penalty. Hoping to get a lesser sentence, Valachi decided to squeal to the U.S. Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, the Justice Department, the FBI and, in testimony broadcast on radio and television, to the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, headed by John [=McClellan=] on October 1963. Although Valachi's disclosures never led directly to the prosecution of many Mafia leaders, he was able to provide many details of its inner workings, aiding in the solution of several unsolved murders, as well as naming many members and the major crime families.
