    It depends how morally offensive I personally find it.

    Not morally offensive = Nope

    Somewhat = Nope but he’s going to get an earful

    Aw man, he did what? = Nope but he may get the boot

    Seriously, that’s sick = Yup.

    @joya_aspera:  I agree with this. It totally depends on what it is.

    There is a big difference between tax evasion and rape. It would depend.

    @joya_aspera:  basically… Except for if I found out he was a baby toucher… Then I’d be the one going to jail for what I’d do to him.

    I really depends. If it was something awful like rape or pedophilia, that sucker is getting kicked to the curb and reported. If it’s something not too bad, I’d probably tell him to stop immediately before he got caught and cover his tracks. Then there’s the middle ground…

    It depends on what it was. Selling drugs can be considered a felony and at least 15% of the people I went to high school with sold drugs, it’s also not something that you can call the cops about after the fact- besides why would you call the cops on someone who USED to sell drugs and may have completely turned their life around since… ridiculous. Tax evasion, not life threatening, I’d at least talk about it. If you help cover up a felony you can be held responsible as an accessory so I’d definitely mind my P’s and Q’s.

    Up to murder (it would depend on whom he killed)

    Baby touching is not acceptable… ever, in any fashion, and even if he was only accused, I would leave him.


    Pretty much, we’re partners in crime unless he gets creepy with children.

    I would help him hide a body, but if he raped or touched a little kid, i would go berserker on his ass.

    @kgirl91:  Yep.


    It depends what the illegal thing is and if he plans on continuing doing such thing or feels major remorse for his actions. Tax evasion, eh… looking at underage porn when HE was underage, eh… child porn with no remorse or intention to stop… we have a problem!

    Murder or involving an Innocent Child…

    Ya his ass is fried.  I will turn him in.

    Anything else… debatable.  (Tax Evasion… meh)

    BIG STUFF and I would 100% be walking… disappear totally if necessary.

    Gone before the sun does rise !!

    Also didn’t vote in the poll, because it’s too vague.  But I’m another on the “it would depend on the exact crime” side of things.  Some things, I would not only report him for – I’d probably do my damndest to collect all the evidence I could, first!  Other things, I’d be more lenient with.
