  3. In the attempt of alerting the authority regarding a wrongdoing, the result behaviour may be considered as immoral, especially when the information has not been made public
  4. Vinten's summation is very true to a great extent

The aim of this paper is to provide a critical discussion of Vinten's summation of the whistle-blowing that ?For one thing the whistle-blowing path is not easy, and the bee-sting phenomenon may often apply. One has only one sting to use, and by using it, may well kill off one's career.? In this assertion, Vinten is trying to associate the act/behaviour of whittle behaviour the bee-sting phenomenon. The bee-sting behaviour can only be used before the act jeopardises the whistle-blower's career. The case depicts an apparent dilemma that is often faced by genuine whistle-blowers in the course of attempting to rectify possible wrongdoings within the organizations in which they work.
