Facebook page publicizing 'snitches' in Tacoma

TACOMA -- A Facebook page dedicated to publicizing "snitches" in the Tacoma area is being watched by law enforcement.
Officials say the information posted on "Tacoma Snitches" is public information available in media reports and court documents.
But KOMO News reported that police are monitoring the page.
Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said should the chatter on the page escalate to threats, his office will look into it. However there is concern that someone's information put on the page could become a target of retaliation.
The page was created Sept. 14. Its "about" page said "if you know of any snitches put them on blast on here."
Site administrators at Tacoma Snitches didn't respond to a request for comment from KOMO.
