Snitching is good?

A bunch of adults smiling smugly while announcing a plan to entice young students to snitch on each other.  They are setting up a hotline for the public to report on schools where students are planning class boycotts. The students themselves are the most likely to have such information.  So this is akin to asking students to snitch on each other.  That is despicable.  The act itself is bad enough.  And they seemed to be proud of it.  

It is hard to imagine how anyone can do such a thing.  Some of them seemed to be teachers or somehow involved in education.  Presumably some of them are parents.  So they are encouraging their own children and students to snitch on each other?  How low can you get? I understand some of them will do anything to attract attention, while others will do anything to please their masters in Beijing.  But this?  

This is like selling your soul.  Is it really worth it?

I read in a student forum that the young people know what is right,and what is wrong. Friends can have different political stance, but they will never snitch on their friends because they do not share the same view on politics.

All I can lament is this group of adults are shameless.
