A few questions about room monitors

What ever became of those drunk-with-power grade-school kids who were eager to be assigned the role of taking names of misbehaving classmates when the teacher had to leave the room for a few minutes (probably to have a cigarette)?

Is this where some people first learned that accusations of wrongdoing could be a highly subjective matter?

Why didn't these overzealous room monitors seem to notice that there were hardly ever any real consequences for those on the list of alleged perpetrators?

In your circle, were enthusiastic tattletales ever targeted for frontier justice after school?
