Family commiting crimes?

    Daffy Duckposted 7 years ago

    How serious of a crime would a loved one have to commit before you turned them in?

      it would really depend on the situation, at hand.  However, knowing them, I know if I did something wrong (NOT that I ever would, but I'm just bringing this up as an example), I know they'd turn me in at a heartbeat without even bothering hearing my side of the story.  Seriously, they'll trust a complete stranger's word over mine every single time.  lollol  I guess this is where I can kind of identify with Rodney Dangerfield sometimes.  I get no respect.  No respect at all, I tells ya.  lollol j/k tongue

    Maybe You Should Ask Them ?

    Hi Daffy Duck,
    Personally, I would never turn a loved one in for any reason.

    1. Daffy Duck profile image60
      Daffy Duckposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Not even if they killed someone without cause?

  4. paradigmsearch profile image91

    Ongoing treason would also seem to be a legitimate reason.

    Depends on if there is a bounty involved.  I'd turn in Grandma for a million or so.

    Breathing.

      Daffy Duckposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I'd hate to go to one of your family reunions.

      1. Mighty Mom profile image84
        Mighty Momposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        It's only one family member I feel that way about.
        Because of her actions, we are not likely to have any family reunions anytime soon.
        Would it seem less harsh if I changed it from "breathing" to "speaking"? lol

          That's more like it. :-)

    It would largely depend on the crime and if people were hurt in the process. I don't like anyone hurting or impeding another person, and if I didn't turn them in, the bad karma would be mine. However, if it was someone I was very close to, I'd probably try to get them to turn themselves in.

      I'd probably try to talk them into turning themselves in too.

    Definitely rape, and maybe murder.  The murder would depend on the circumstances.  I see the treason, it's just not that common of an offense.

    Depends who I liked more: The person the crime was against or the family member!
