I have posted something about this before. Over the years it has been considered a fact that Jimmy was a rat and that Tony and the guys did the right thing by nocking him off. I have watched and rewatched the episodes leading up to sil and chris doing the hit. I offer up my opinion that they jumped the gun on this one. I think that Big Pussy was the only one doing the talking. I think that Tony was in such denial over Big Pussy becoming a rat that he was eager to find someone else to point the finger at. I am not suggesting that Tony was intentionally trying to get Pussy off and pin it on Jimmy. I am simply saying that I believe his opinion on the subject was clouded by his friendship with Pussy. I also see nothing that leads me to believe that Jimmy was a rat. Sure he came around asking questions and at the time the guys were looking for a rat so he seemed to fit perfectly. From the viewers point of view it seems like it should be clear that Pussy was the only one doing the talking. Please provide me with something that will help me understand why everyone thinks that Jimmy was also a rat.
