If you witnessed your friend commit a major crime?

Hypothetically & not a morals question. If you were out with a friend and they  m*urdered someone for whatever reason in front of you. And there was no circumstantial, Impression, or Biological evidence that they could be charged with. But you yourself would be an eyewitness, or Direct Evidence of the crime.

Would you keep your silence or report what they did?

Even if that means you'd be fingered as a possible accomplice?

I'd tell the police. Because they could do the same thing to me if things were to get bad between them and I later on down the road. I would be afraid of being suspected of being an accomplice or the main suspect. And having to get a defense attorney. Lawyers are expensive, That's probably why some people who don't tell hoping the police or the FBI doesn't show up accusing them of being the one who did it.

I guess it would have to depend on whether I felt like the law and it's usual sentencing is appropriate. So for example, if my 20 year and 11 month old friend was in a country in which the age for drinking alcohol was 21, and had one small glass of wine with dinner, I would not tell the police if it could result in j*il time.

But, if I believe that the law and likely sentencing is just, I think I would, regardless of my relation to who committed the crime. I am against m**der in every instance, so if someone m**dered my whole family, and a friend of mine ki**ed that m**derer, I would tell the police that that's what happened

I’ve turned in a friend for cooking m*th and dealing so reporting for m**der sounds similar since it’s hard to convince cops you aren’t an accomplice in other crimes too. 

I'm not happy with how the police do their jobs where I live.

I had 6 cops up in my apartment questioning me about accusations of domestic a'buse that I was not guilty of. They were called on me by my ex sister in law. We had her k'ids because she was doing m'eth around them and CPS was involved. They served her with a court order. She didn't like it because I wanted to send them to her mom or into the foster system because I was prioritizing our 2 k'ids. We couldn't take care of 4 k'ids. I didn't want to deal with it.

So my ex wife calls her sister and tells her that I'm pushing for this and she gets mad. Comes over and starts a fight. Her sister calls the police and they treat me like the bad guy. But they don't arrest her and she was violating the court order. 

And anytime I've raised a concern with the police when someone is antagonizing me. I always get, "sorry we can't do anything". They said the same thing when I got run out of my apartment. They just said that they couldn't go over there and talk to my ex wife or her sister about tenet rights and that the cop went on how they can't be used to intimidate people. So I went over there with my mother & she filmed my ex wife and her sister mouthing off on how I wasn't welcome there. 

Took it to the police. Nope, nothing. Didn't give a crap about it. They just repeated that I could be over there.

My mother raised a good point: "But if she calls the police, you'll come over and h***ss him & treat him like you did last time. How is that fair?" 

The cop didn't really answer that one. So that night I moved in with her and sometime after that filed for divorce.
