It's usually a crooked cop, though it's often a military commander, frequently an overbearing employer, sometimes a teacher or principal, even a babysitter--plenty of parents, too. The Untouchable Authority Figure is corrupt to the core, thoroughly despicable, pure evil--but where the villain of the piece gets it in the end, the squealer takes it right between the eyes, even the rude party guest slips on a banana peel... the Untouchable Authority Figure gets no comeuppance, no consequences from his inexcusable behavior. The secret social point being put across is that ordinary "little guys"--this means you, folks--are helpless to deal with the Ones in Charge, gotta love 'em, ya can't fight City Hall.... so just give up and go along to get along.
