I think you need new tires. Get ones that have a good wet traction rating.

Can also be caused by alignment issues or a bad brake proportioning valve or bad suspension components but most commonly caused by worn tires like FoR notes.

Normally no it is not, they were so stable that some were detectives vehicles right along side of the Crown Vic. So check out what the other two stated above and I'll add the differential, if the limited slip clutches are not working properly it can also cause this. So tires, alignment, braking issues and differential.

Rear wheel drive cars can handle like that in wet conditions, especially if the tires are worn or something suspension related is broken at the rear of the car. Get it looked at by an alignment shop and make sure the tries are properly inflated.
