Nero10/27/072:47pmIf I found out that one, or more of my family members broke a major law, what i would do would depend on how close of a relationship we had. If it werr my bro or sis then i would do whatever i could to prolong or even prevent there capture. Even if it ment i would go down with them. Its all about love. Now if it were my G/F i would die before i let someone take her away so thats just how i feel!!!! Nero-1
Olean01/29/078:50pmIf you would ture your back on family,you would do it to any one you can not be trusted !!!!!
Erika11/11/068:22pmI put maybe because some of the crimes listed such as embezzlement or burglary have the potential of causing serious detrimental effects to the innocent victims of the crime. Embezzlement could cause other employees to lose their jobs and burglary could affect the victim's sense of safety and ruin one's financial security. Grand theft auto seems less impactful to the victim since insurance is required and the crime is less personal. In this case, I would advise them to abandon the car where it could be found.
Joyce11/11/066:48pmYes i would report .... if an adult was at a point in their lives that they did this .. do you really think they care about you , family or foe .... would you believe that they didnt drink or be involved in drugs ?????? if they were of strong constitution ... worked ..... and lived a good life they would not harm another ....

Dee11/07/061:51amI've been in this situation and it's a real heart puller!! I've been told by the person conserned that I did do them a favour by not covering for them when I was asked directly if I knew anything by the cops, it made them rethink their life path. What they said was, I was true "family" as I did this in their best interest as the company they were keeping was leading them down the wrong path. I felt like pants though, and it took me a long time to deal with the guilt. Some of my family don't talk to me anymore as a result where as some are so on my side, and they rubbish other members. One consequence of this is that it can divide a family... think carefully before you act. I don't know whether I'd do it again if I'm frank, I really don't know.
Topolini11/06/066:55pmI'd simply cut off ties with that sibling or family member! This way, i'd be hitting 2 birds with 1 stone; i wouldnt be destroying my own conscience by turning them in, & at the same time i'd be letting them know exactly what i think of their criminal act(s)!
KEISHA11/06/069:21amWHAT USUALLY HAPPENS IS THAT IF THE FAMILY LIKES THIS PERSON..THEY WILL STICK BY THEM AND EVEN TELL A LIE OR TWO TO GET THEM OFF....BUT IF THEY DONT LIKE THE FAMILY MEMBER THEY WILL TEAR THIS PERSON APART AND TELL EVERYTHING THEY KNOW ABOUT THEM SINCE BIRTH...EVEN TELLING A LIE OR TWO TO PUT THEM IN JAIL...
Bam Bam11/05/065:05pmThere's no law that say's you have to report a crime. But, if i were questioned in regards to one I would definitely say what i knew. It's really personal choice. I guess someone can only surmise what they would do, but, when your faced with it whether it's a sibling or your own child then tell me you or the other person would bet their A$$ they'd turn them in. By the way, I interrupted someone breaking into my friends car once, literally said "hey what are you doing the cops are on their way" and then he yelled and said I was next. Sure enough, leaving work at about midnight two weeks later and two weeks before Christmas my vehicle was broken into. Even simple robbers (family or not) live in a different world than we do. How safe are we really. Like I said it all depends some of us are braver than others.
Jackie11/04/065:16pmAs much as I'd hate to, I'd report them. You are not doing someone a favour by keeping this knowledge to yourself. Also you could be charged with being an accomplace, witholding evidence and obstructing justice. Tough love is the best way to go.
Cyn11/02/066:55amHow can you NOT turn a guilty one in? Family or not, their behavior is uncalled for and unnecessary. If it were me doing a crime, you bet your a$$ someone would turn me in...family or not. You have to be able to deal with the outcomes of your behaviors. Besides, keeping secrets is only bad for the soul. "What if" the person committing the crime ever found out you knew of their felony and didnt turn them in? Im sure they would TRY AGAIN. Or, "what if" they tried again and someone got hurt and you could've stopped it from happening by reporting the first incident? Too many "what if's"..better safe than sorry.
Bam Bam10/31/068:09pmWith my luck it would be a family member I don't know very well and I would have only heard about it through the grapevine. Telling on them in secret would tease my mind for a few days and then I would talk myself out of it probably. I can't believe I said that.
Guest30310/28/062:24pmIf someone in my family committed a crime, I believe i would first try to convince them to see the wrong they have done. I would try to help them turn themselves in to the authorities and I would continue persuading them until they did it. Because I know it would kill me inside if I turned them in myself. I couldnt bear to see rift in my family members. I have read that some criminals dont have a conscious so thats why they repeat thier criminal behaviours. If the crime was a horrid one (such as 10 murders or cannibalism) then I wouldnt have second thoughts about turning them in. In these cases, they are a definite danger to everyone and should be locked away from the public and given maximum therapy for years. Thankfully, no one in my family has ever committed a gravious crime--petite ones, yes. Such as speeding or backing into someone by accident.
StarlessOne10/27/0612:30pm I wouldn't have the heart to report anyone in my family for anything they did because I KNOW they wouldn't do it to me. Somethings are better left unsaid and what you don't know doesn't hurt you.... I wouldn't want to be known as an accomplice or anything like that though. My boyfriend is serving a life sentence for murder and he's been in prison for 13 years. As much as it hurts I am proud of him that he turned himself in.
Alice10/27/062:42amThis issue is very personal to me. My husband did commit murder, is doing 4 lives for it. As I was looking into this murder, investigating it my ownself as I truly needed to know; I would discover not only had he done so, but actually would confirm my suspicions pertaining to another prior incident, where he was involved in another murder 3 years before he officially left my daughter and myself. I'll never be sure if he assisted or actually took the life. All I do know is that humans are behavior creatures; just like a sole circle dismount from the uneven paralells. Scary, but lesser and lesser each time. So is it for a person who can harm another or society; related or not, it gets easier each time. Eventually, my husband got twisted enough to begin to pursue my daughter and I and I own the pictures of the damage he would eventually do, one day before he was due to return to our home state!! A beating and stabbing that was to have been my own. Your honor is to your creator, whoever you percieve that to be. Withholding any truth that effects the outcome of any situation where someone innocent was harmed, is a lie. Continue this trend and one day, I might be you! Think about it.
Sierra10/25/0612:26pmI WOULD TURN THEM IN BECAUSE THEY COULD ACT AGAIN AND MAYBE THEY COULD HURT SOMEONE. I KNOW IF I MADE THE CRIME I WOULD DO THE TIME, ESPECIALLY IF IT WAS A FELONY.
MONICA10/25/069:31amIT WOULD DEPEND ON THE CRIME AND IF IT HURT ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER. MOST LIKELY I WOULD NOT REPORT A FAMILY MEMBER BECAUSE THERE IS THE ISSUE OF BEING LOYAL TO YOUR FAMILY. IF YOU CAN'T TRUST YOUR FAMILY WHO CAN YOU TRUST??
Shay10/25/068:19amHelping them is not helping eaither of you. I think people should take action on their own wrong doings. Remember what you do to others does come back three folds. helping them get away with a wrong does not make it right.
ANDREA10/22/063:19amI WOULD FIRST TRY TO TALK THEM INTO MAKING GOOD OUT OF THIS BAD DECSION THEY HAVE MADE. IF NOT I WOULD REPORT THEM. NO MATTER IF THEY ARE FAMILY EVERYBODY HAS TO HAVE SOME KIND OF BOUNTARIES AND LIMITS SET FOR THEY OWN LIFES. ISN'T THAT PART OF WHY WE HAVE RULES OF LIFE IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Sheilah10/22/062:08amI WOULD NOT. Loyalty and Charity does begin at home. I would NOT condone what they did, and if there was any way to remedy the situation I would push the envelope on that. I would try with all my might and faith to influence said family member turn themselves in, but under no circumstances would I turn them in other than if there was a safety factor involved. (I WOULD call them in for instance if they insisted on driving drunk or I knew they were on their way to assault or other dangerous activity) But under no other instance would I turn them in. NO! In this country we have the RIGHT not to incriminate ourselves, and my family extends self to family members. We might shame them into doing the right thing, but we won't give up our own.
Helen10/21/067:20amThe problem with our society is that some people feel it's ok to commit crimes. In the end we all suffer in one way or another. Lets stop the bad behavior and get back to being good people again.
Lynne10/19/064:50pmYes I would. Someone else would suffer because of what they had done and that is morally wrong. If you love someone then you help them face the consequences and stand by them. By ignoring the action and not reproting it you are condoning their behaviour.
Stephan10/19/064:01amI must agree with Anna. It becomes somewhat of a conditional dilemma, because on the one side u're confronted with their morally-wrong actions & on the other hand with your own loyalty & love for that person! So if i were to answer from my gutt feeling (&Not think too much over the Q!), i would resort to only give them a piece of moralizing advice, the 1st time...but if it turned into a regular habit for them, i'd simply cut off any relations & associations that i may have with that person(a family member or a friend,or whatever..), EVEN if he were my own twin bro!! But i could never get myself to turn him(them) in, because of the painful fact that i'm somehow related to that person, and that would ultimately weigh TOO heavily on my conscience!
Anna10/18/068:42amIf they were bragging about said crime and not sorry in the least I would probably turn them in. particularly if drygs were involved
Moonlight10/18/068:19amThis is an interesting one...
