WESTEFER v. SNYDER
725 F.Supp.2d 735 (2010)
United States District Court, S.D. Illinois.
July 20, 2010.
Q. What is this renunciation?
A. I don't know. I never went out there. I wasn't never concerned about it.
Q. All right.
THE COURT: Well, let me stop you there. Why wouldn't you be?
THE WITNESS: Because supposedly— this is word that's going around, that supposedly when you go out there you suppose to be a stool pigeon and tell these people everything they want to hear. And if you don't tell them that, then, you know, it is a waste; you are not going to leave from down here. And that's the last thing I want to do is to be marked and to be—have other inmates thinking that I'm telling something, you know. That's—that's—that's not— that's something I don't want a label on myself.

Q. Why would you want to avoid that label, what impact would it have?
