Random information on the term “Stool pigeon”:

Italian term pentito (Italian pronunciation: [penˈtiːto]; “repentant”; plural: pentiti) is used colloquially to designate people in Italy who were formerly part of criminal or terrorist organizations and who, following their arrests, decided to “repent” and collaborate with the judiciary to help further investigations. The judicial category of pentiti was originally created in legislation passed by the Italian government in the 1970s to combat violence and terrorism during the so-called Years of Lead. The correct technical name used for them is “collaborators of justice” (Italian: collaboratori di giustizia). In the wake of the Maxi Trial in Palermo in 1986–87, and after the testimony of Tommaso Buscetta, the term came into widespread use in Italy for all former members of the Sicilian Mafia who had abandoned their organization and started helping investigators.

In exchange for the information they deliver, pentiti receive shorter sentences for their crimes, in some cases even freedom. In the Italian judicial system, pentiti can obtain personal protection, a new name, and some money to start a new life in another place, possibly abroad.

Random information on the term “RAT”:

Rat is an unincorporated community in northeast Shannon County, in the U.S. state of Missouri. The community is adjacent to Big Creek about six miles south-southwest of Bunker.

A post office called Rat was established in 1898, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1954. The community was named “Rat” in protest after postal authorities denied the townspeople their first choice of “Buckshorn”. Rat has been noted for its unusual place name.
